Yeah. Buying the 11-inch. With new keyboard and trackpad, it will work better as a laptop replacement than before.

Apple is going way high end here with the new iPad Pros. The 12.9 inch model starts at the same price with the new MacBook Air, but it’s 128GB vs 256GB on the MBA.

Once you add in the Pencil and the insanely expensive Magic Keyboard, it will be the price of the MBP, but again it’s 128GB vs 256GB.

You have to be really sure of what you need when you buy this iPad Pro. If it’s gonna be your main computer, are you sure the MBA or the upcoming 14 inch MBP won’t be better for day-to-day productivity? If it’s gonna be your supplemental device to your main machine, are you sure the iPad Air/regular iPad can’t do the same job?

Valid points. But I think that's just where the trend is headed. A 8/128 Surface Pro X with the keyboard and pen will also cost RM5.3k. For that amount of money, I'd get a MBP too smile.gif

Haha that depends if you really need a laptop or not.

More most occasions, iPads are enough. The versatility is what makes it unique.

Guys, I;m glad Apple didn't jack the price on the account of malaysia ringgit that been plunged to shiet in light or coronavirus. This is a very good price. no need to worry about getting it oversea, local is the cheapest now.

Ya, it can be argued that with iPadOS, the iPad is now more versatile, but I'm not sure if it is a complete replacement for a laptop just yet. Either way, as JerryRig would say, it's definitely a step in the right direction.

A good 3rd party keyboard case will probably costs about RM300-RM400, a non-keyboard one probably RM150 or so. Asking RM1000 and above for a keyboard case is pushing it for me smile.gif

It’s indeed cheaper than hk. I just compared this morning, was thinking to wait for local set or Malaysian set. Malaysia is indeed one of the cheapest country to purchase a iOS devices few years back. But price was shot up in recent years.

why the trackpad when you're in iPad?
Most of the MBP will dump trackpad if we have touchscreen but why the new iPad...
it's like reversed engineering thinking
any possible function for this particular trackpad?

It’s never meant to be a large screen phone, although arguably when it was first launched it did feel like just a big a$$ iPhone back then. But with iPadOS and the USB C adoption, it’s clear that Apple now wants this shift to a laptop replacement. We’ll see how it pans out. Are you getting one bro?

True, and the old one supports the magic keyboard too. I’m not opposed to getting the older one if it is discounted significantly by maxis in the upcoming days or weeks.

Same here. I like that the base storage is now doubled, 128GB seems more reasonable. The one thing I don't like is that I think this iPad Pro will be every bit as fragile as the last one and will bend easily with pressure!

bought the 2018 ipad pro 3 weeks ago with apple pencil.... my intention is to go paperless and be a bit creative....

surely paperless for the last 3 weeks... everyday go to management meeting and no need to bring that diary planner... and the note I took down is more easily accessible and neatly arranged... bought Brydge keyboard but end up not using it at all...

2020 ipad? hmmm it is ok ... the one i have now is a lot of fun to use for the next few years...

I bought the 3rd gen 12.9” 64gb for entertainment and for light works like emails and presentations..after a year using now I’m down to 42gb left, so I’m good with 64gb.

Durability wise I’m ok, not even using super UAG or otter, just normal rm160 casing and no bent and etc to date...

mind sharing why spending more on cellular is worth it? in terms of daily use example

most places i would use an ipad would have wifi; and if not, would hotspot from my phone. also saves paying additional monthly simcard data.

convenience is the main reason i suppose, i like the redundancy.
I'll always go for lte models myself. If you do, reconnecting to the iPhone every single time it goes into power saving mode is a major annoyance that's well worth avoiding for an extra bucks.
This has proven beneficial with the mini as it makes the iPad truly portable and standalone, without having to tether or beg for wifi.
Now, having said that, obviously if you never take your iPad outside, then just stick with the wifi version. Also if you treat the iPad like a laptop (very few laptops have cellular modem), then just get the wifi version and tether as needed.
Buy what you need.

convenience is the main reason i suppose, i like the redundancy.
I'll always go for lte models myself.  If you do, reconnecting to the iPhone every single time it goes into power saving mode is a major annoyance that's well worth avoiding for an extra bucks.
This has proven beneficial with the mini as it makes the iPad truly portable and standalone, without having to tether or beg for wifi.
Now, having said that, obviously if you never take your iPad outside, then just stick with the wifi version. Also if you treat the iPad like a laptop (very few laptops have cellular modem), then just get the wifi version and tether as needed.
Buy what you need.

I wished new Macbooks got CELLULAR MODEM built in.

Coupled with Unifi mobile unlimited data quota, it’s the perfect working machine when travelling.

Is cellular on Apple Watch worthwhile? I decide to go with non-cellular version just to conserve battery.

I had an iPad Pro with cellular but almost never used the cellular before.
Then upgraded to a newer iPad Pro with larger storage but forgo cellular this time.

Depends on you actually.

I use it for outdoor runs and gym. Literally tossed my phone aside and just rely on my watch for music and workout tracking.

Battery life enough to survive until end of the day with <10% left.

They used to have that multi-SIM thingy, but yeah, I agree, they should allow seamless integration of our mobile plan across all our devices.

Doubt they will refresh it so soon after taking 16 months for this upgrade. Unless 5G really takes off by then which I doubt so.

Most of the apple youtubers telling theres another iPad pro upgrade around November with mini LED, A14X chip and 5G model, will just wait and see.

It has been an ongoing rumour that Apple will release new iPads and MacBooks with mini-LED display starting from end of this year.
I guess they won’t be replacing the current LCD models, but to be sold at a higher price (similar to iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro).

So... iPad Super Pro incoming?

I guess we'll have to wait and see. Most manufacturing and supply chains of tech companies have been badly affected by Covid-19. I wouldn't be surprised if there will be far less new gadgets released this year.

Actually don't understand why Apple didn't change the panel for the 2020 iPad Pros - could've gone with Mini LEDs so they don't have to clutter their product lineup with so many different variant.

Mind to share which store? Looks like a12z isn’t any better compare to a12x and I certainly don’t care about the camera.

It’s physically very similar to the 2018 one, so I’m sure it’s every bit as fragile.

been searching for discounted/2nd hand 2018 ipad pro models since this 2020 model came out. and thought could save some money since don't need these new features.

most selling 64gb for around rm3000 range; and 256gb rm4000 (cheapest i found rm3500). might as well get the new one. not worth saving few hundred for old and even 2nd hand.

Yup, same here. The good thing about the 2020 one is that the base storage is now 128GB, so that’s probably a nice balance between 64 which could be too little and 256 which could be overkill.

can't think of any other reason other than this. but apple needs to try harder on the magic mouse upgrades. the freakin mouse looks exactly the same with the first and second generation. i would gladly upgrade them even with a subtle aesthetic differences.

I’m interested to get that magic keyboard for my Ipad pro 2018 as i do my work 80% on my ipad pro on the go and i prefer for the comfortness to type on the magic keyboard rather than the smart keyboard.

Or i should i just get the upcoming Thinkpad portable external laptop keyboard that offers excellent typing experience? Uses Bluetooth to pair though.

My strong guess is that it'll follow the timeline like last years iPad Air and Mini refresh. Both those models were announced on March 18th 2019. Both were approved by SIRIM on April 1st/2nd. Both were launched on April 9th of that year.

My strong guess is that it'll follow the timeline like last years iPad Air and Mini refresh. Both those models were announced on March 18th 2019. Both were approved by SIRIM on April 1st/2nd. Both were launched on April 9th of that year.

My prediction? Can relax until next Thursday (9/4).

Nice! I was told by a friend with so-called inside connections that it will only be available in May, or at the soonest after the MCO is lifted. Let's see smile.gif

Yes can use
2020 ipad pro has bigger camera thus it has bigger cutout, but still will fit just nice with 2018 ipad pro since that is the only physical difference between them.

apple's education price is meant for teacher and student. I can't comment on the ethic value.

Mine's lagging quite badly now, needing more reboots to keep things running smoothly but man, almost 10 years so I'm happy to retire it

Either an iPad Pro or a MBA or if I'm lucky, the 14" MBP might be revealed soon so we all can have 3 to choose from

Hi guys, I’m in consideration of choosing with or without cellular model.

If I am to pick cellular model. Which telco has the plan for the tablet ya? Or do you have any recommendation? Already checked with maxis, their tablet plan 28 is not able to share my maxisone prime unlimited data pool.

Thanks yo.

any data plan will work with tablet. cheapest unlimited should be umobile 50. maxis one prime comes with 48 subline. so it really depends on your needs.

Most likely your inside connection is referring to stock availability for local resellers like Machines, Switch, Seng Heng etc.

If last year's iPad Mini/Air release is used as a guide, Apple MY's online store is the first place in Malaysia you can buy the 2020 iPad Pro from. Last year came out around 9am 😅

Can enlighten me?

I did some comparison:

2nd Gen:
- better camera (well.....i seldom take phone with ipad)
- cheaper (with student price)
- newer processor

But
- less storage with that price range (128GB)


1st Gen:
- bigger storage
- huge discount from previous price

Guys should I get the cellular model though? My parents recommend me to take up the cellular one cuz it's convenient, you don't need to use Cafes/Shops Wifi which pose security threats. But its the same if I were to opt in for the Wifi version, using my own hotspot, isnt it the same?

Get the cellular version, more convenient than keep on using hotspot from mobile phone. Unless you always carry charger/powerbank to charge your mobile as hotspot.

Mine is 11 inch! Most likely should arrive by next week, Friday latest I think.

Apple has a known habit of under promising their delivery schedule so should definitely arrive earlier!

Is it worthy to take from Maxis?

I saw the package is RM199 monthly.. for 24 months right?
Thats RM4800 for Ipad 11 256gb, more costly than buying from Apple.

Is it worthy to take from Maxis?

I saw the package is RM199 monthly.. for 24 months right?
Thats RM4800 for Ipad 11 256gb, more costly than buying from Apple.
Am i missing anything?

That's the old one, they haven't updated it yet. Actually it's 199 x 24 = 4776 and Apple's price is 4799 so it's about the same. The only reason I wanna buy it from maxis is so I can take their RM18 plan for 5GB. I'm currently paying RM48 for my iPad which is kinda wasteful coz can't use it for unlimited calls or SMS laugh.gif

do you own the device after 24 months? or you have to fork out another sum of money?

Yeah, you'll own it after 24 months.

At this point I'm ok to buy the 2018 one from them still if they cut the price by RM600-RM700 or so smile.gif

one thing about k380, the keyboard is small. the key distance is very narrow.

true. no backlight also which is an issue in dim environments. But I like the price and option to 'remember' 3 device.

Whatever u do, stick with Apple authorize dealer. Price will be more expensive for sure, but u know it’s 100% genuine and safe. Not to discredit other store services, but u just can’t be 100% certain. Peace of mind.

These are the current local stores that are offering pre-orders for the 2020 iPad Pro's

1) Machines (pick up/free delivery, deposit RM300) - https://www.machines.com.my/collections/ipad-family

2) Switch (pick up ONLY, deposit RM300) - https://switch.com.my/pre-order-your-ipad-pro/

3) Mac City (pick up/free delivery, deposit RM 300) - https://maccity.com.my/ipad-pro

All in all, due to the further extension of MCO till 28th April (and maybe even beyond that) it'll be faster to get delivery of 2020 iPad Pro if you order via Apple website.

Historically local resellers will only get stock when 1st wave of Apple online store buyers get it.
