ya i think for 90% of users, a proper laptop or surface pro 4 is a better value.

thanksfully mine will be charged under company and will speed up my day to day illustration works a lot. I have tried ALL kinda of stylus for iPad (Wacom,Adonit etc) and those klunky stylus hacks and latency has been killing my productivity for years. The reason I m not a fan of surface is the softwares, not optimized and plenty of frictions. The previous Galaxy Note Pro 12.2" which I bought was the worst.

For some, it can be the only machine.

A good surface pro 4 (Core i7 chip) costs up to RM7k so I doubt that value seems to come into the minds of people looking for it.

For me I dont need a device that does everything, i just need one that does few things very very good. in my case illustrations, even with cintiq i still need to go through all the sludge of booting computer, launching adobe slow bloated craps before starting to actually work...kills all momentum.

With iPad Pro, its like picking up a paper and start drawing #bliss

Even Jony Ive team are moving away from traditional paper. No more silly scanning after drawing and all those nonsense. No wonder launch only, pencil backlogged to 4-5weeks now in order, all artists and designers have been waiting for this for 5 years. Thankfully my order is within a week time in the first batch.

I wonder why you are explaining this to me....

I explained that because they are a lot people evaluating the value between a surface pro 4 and ipad pro. and if you are looking at numbers of things these devices can do for most ppl, surface pro 4 is a better value for a similar priced configuration.
*
LOL I think you tagged the wrong guy as I wasn't evaluating any of these devices. Both don't suit my needs at all.

hi all new to here. just bought mine from MacStudio One Utama 32gb version. running great.

tip: not sure if it effects others, but the white version of the ipad pro seems to detect my fingerprints easier than the black face type. my fingers are usually naturally oily even just after a wash with soap. so...white is defi the better option for me.

for screen protectors, at lowyat can't remember the floor, at the corner end of the mobile shops, there's a wholesaler selling accessories for all handphones, got my screen protector for iPad Pro at RM35 and installed the glass my self. 0.30mm type and no issues with sensitivity. 

hearthstone doesn't have that occasional lag when compared to my previous ipad air. so i'm happy about it. doh.gif

Which fingerprint sensor are you comparing against? The iPad Air 2 or the iPhone 5s or 6?

I saw UAG in Machines and Connect. You could msg their FB page to know which outlets have it.

Whats the rough price range of the UAG sold here for the iPad Pro? I am currently using the Apple cover for my ipad pro.

No it doesn't . You can either pair it with the apple smart keyboard or just a glass screen protector. If you're too lazy. A sleeve will do rclxms.gif

Looks nice but I am quite concerned about the no front cover. Perhaps I am just paranoid and I also don't like to use a glass screen protector on it.

Damn, KLCC is out of stock? Perhaps I need to lurk around there more often to find out about their stock availability of purchase it overseas.

Side note' did anyone purchased tempered glass for their iPad pro? The cheap ones lol. Not the ones avail in stores

Didn't bother with one at the moment. Currently running it quite bare. If I get the UAG case then I would go for the tempered glass protector.

how much you bought? is it too heavy with the case on it?

Full retail price of RM339. Yes, it does feel quite heavy now. I might not use the case all the time but now whenever I bring it out, I feel quite secure with it.

Btw anyone using cellular iPad? I'm looking for a mobile carrier with good speeds and not that pricy lol. Anyone can recommend which plan & price of plan?
*
I have been using Maxis for years, they do give the least amounts of data per month for the price but I have been very very happy with their coverage and speeds so far.

Wanted to use uMobile and Digi but after comparing it with my sibling's data speed and coverage in the places that we go, I have to stick with Maxis.

I am considering Celcom as my colleague's speed has been rather impressive.

Congrats!

Now I am torn, I always wanted the Pro features on the 9.7" iPad and now it is here. Right after I purchased the larger pro, now I have gotten used to the damn large screen hahaha.

i have sold mine once i heard the rumours of 9.7" ipad pro.

the current ipad pro is wayyyy too big and it's not convenient and tired when holding it to watch movie.
*
I actually love the 12.9" size for watching movies and also reading my Manga and books. The screen is just amazing. But you are right, it gets a little inconvenient especially when carrying it around.

QUOTE(bem69 @ Mar 22 2016, 01:18 PM)
Haha I'm with you Mavik, always wanted Apple Pencil to work with a regular sized iPad. Now, I'm used to it, though I miss the portability.
*
Yeah I find myself carrying it less and less around due to it's size and weight. Still after getting a more sturdy case, it got even heavier bangwall.gif

Congrats on your purchase! I am pissed that the smaller 9.7" iPad Pro has true tone while the monster version which I have doesn't have bangwall.gif

iPad Pro 9.7" is now available on Apple Malaysia website!! Delivery date range from 1-3 days!

RM3,999 for a gold 9.7" Pro, 128Gb, Wifi + Cellular

Hrmmmm....quite tempting but it would be tough to switch from the 13" screen size to the smaller 9.7" size.

Anyone who is still searching for the UAG Case for the iPad Pro 12.9", I have one for sale here in my sales link below. Bought it from Machines but was a little too itchy and bought way too many cases. Just clearing some stuff I have lying around at home.
