Still waiting for truly professional aps though. All the current Adobe iOS apps, for example, you still need to export your work to the OS X or Windows versions to finish up and print/publish.

Good for you. Unfortunately I need a lot more than that to put food on the table.

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.

So yeah, TL;DR - it might be great for some people with very specific needs, but for a lot of people in advertising, design, photography, etc - it's barely useable. Not that a Surface Pro is that much better, but at least you can install full Photoshop or Corel Painter on a Surface Pro. Until Apple get software houses to release full desktop class suites that allow me to do everything in the iPad Pro and ditch OS X, it'll just be a bigger iPad. The most it can do is work as a graphic tablet with Astropad, but in that department my Wacom + Airbrush pens would completely obliterate it for photo retouching work.

I really hope that changes in the coming months, because I've grown sick of OS X. But as of right now, I can't justify company money on it.

Maybe its only suitable for kids smile.gif

is the pencil really worth it tho? hmm.gif

if you are not into drawing, 3D, CAD, illustrations etc. the answer is NO. Honestly, i dont think many ppl need the iPad Pro, have good use of it or gain much value from it at this stage, very niche product. something like Mac Pro.

For me personally and my specific needs, i have been waiting for this iPad and the pencil for almost 5 years already!

you might want to listen to this

i ll give my thoughts soon, haven't got time to test it fully and still waiting for my pencil to arrive tomorrow to give it a good spin. So far (3 days), its been fantastic for me to browse the web, magazines and comics! ipad air feels like iphone 5s after you have been using 6s+ for awhile lol

By the way, Monifilm quite good bro?
I'll go get it from Paradigm.

no idea i think good enough to last much longer than those cheap one at lelong (4H) and crystal clear. only sp available when i was at macstudio, didn't border to wait or check elsewhere or buy online.

anyway, the pencil is amazing, everything I have hoped for and more, light year ahead every other stylus out there and closest thing to a real pencil minus all the limitations and hassle of traditional media. Surface Pro 4 stylus feels like crayon compared to pencil. Definitely the best accessory i ever bought.

While using cintiq feel like tied to desk working, big sludgy and heavy (13HD still stuck with lame bygone hardware like 1080p display and really bad touch sensitivity), ipad pro feels more like leisure, frictionless, light and convenient. i can pickup and start drawing anytime instantly on my sofa etc, very pleasurable and satisfying to use. iPad Pro + Apple Pencil - an artist dream tool!

It really should have come in the box. Apple has a few billion in cash already. Why la so greedy?

(ends rant)

they didn't become the wealthiest company in the world by giving things away haha. but seriously the pencil is not a replacement of finger as the primary input method, its more like a specific tool for certain subset of users for higher precision work like CAD and drawing.

but don't worry i m sure the next Samsung Note Pro will come with Samsung Pencil in. the box wink.gif

My previous iPads never scratched so am forgoing the screen protector. Bought the front cover and back cover. It's labelled as silicone but has a felt - like texture. Not rubbery. I like it. But at almost RM400 for just the back case😳.... It's a scam...

ya ridiculous price..i only bought the back first as its most easily scratched. i use sp for the front as my old ipads scratched before with fine lines using stylus, not noticeable but if you shine light on it can see them (maybe the way i draw haha) i m waiting for a white smart keyboard (apple or 3rd party) for the front, the current grey not my cup of tea wink.gif

was planning to do a video comparison of ipad pro vs the ridiculousness of the dinosaur Cintiq but someone already posted it (exact same thought and setup!)
