    To be honest I have the iPad without keyboard or pencil and it feels like a tab with the entire package with os13 annoying for a 2K max laptop replcement

    Let me write a little something as sombody who probably belongs to the main target audience for this device:
    I am a 2D animation and storyboard artist. Baught a used 12.9 iPad pro with 1TB (!!) for a great deal a few months ago. My plan was to use it as an additional device for work aswell as my main privat computer.
    I have to say that I agree with your review 100%!!
    Occasionally I use it to do some storyboards in procreate when i'm out of office or to review some boards and shots. But more ofthen then not I find myself getting frustrated with the limited functionallity of ios (even after the update to ipados). And since I have a imac 5k and wacom cintiq 4k at my studio, I work there most of the time. Also software is an issue, since my aniamtion and storyboard software does not run on ios.
    In the evening at home I actually try to let go of work and relax. Here is where the iPad pro comes in. I actually do enjoy using it at home for my privat E-Mails, Family fotos, browsing and that stuff. The little toy OS gives me a "away" from work feeling. So it basicly replaced my laptop that I used at home completly.
    In conclusion I can only reapeat what Linus already said. It needs macOS or it will just stay a smartphone wiht a bigger screen.

    I guess I'll just wait for another generation of iPad Pro. This gen doesn't have Gold colour so I'll just pass. Another reason is the price tag is very very high! Out of reach compared to my last gen model (or 2).

    iPads are fucking awesome but they can replace laptop based on the ducking use of each individual
    Personally I would buy a iPad Pro because I only need for studying and notes I have a another laptop for essays and Thesis etc. 1TB Lenovo it’s does the job

    The sad thing is apple is sleeping and increasing prices and making games bigger because it gaves money there. But in the last years they not tune all the apps they have. They only throw out a tiny peace there and watch what the market will do. My satisfaction moves every year more and more down. They talk every year in their presentations from their big houses and cash more, show little kids games makes arcade big, and in my eyes stop everything on pro apps. No wonderful numbers or something else. Photos really gets an update now, but before the change from the old to the new photos where without taking your photo albums with you. You had to recreate everything on your own. Customers say nothing at that time because they where inspired from the last years of improvements.. but now windows is coming with great products and they give you sidecar. Seems like it’s just a ninja move to microsoft, it’s not the old detail beloved apple bummer we had the years before. I think Microsoft will catch a lot mac customers now, and apple will now again make improvements to hold that customers.. makes that sense?

    File manager done... Support for external storage done... Better external display support check... Keyboard and mouse support activated... Pencil works Gr8... IPad angle is perfect... Headphone jack is almost extinct.. U can buy a adapter... Pro... 12x biochip, amazing display, Gr8 multitasking, amazing battery life, faster than majority laptops on the market, portable, good front camera for FaceTime.....not true for a small percentage of ppl... Look at the Sales...Even if u take the no of ipads just bought by college students its sales is more than any tablet sold... Dont need to buy a laptop for a 11 inch IPad pro for 64 gb with Logitech slim folio keyboard and good online for 900 bucks on Amazon... Happy with it

    Why complain abou headphone jacks, they are dead. If you need an headphone jack buy windows 98. Is really that simple.

    A touch laptop is useless because the size of icons, buttons, text, etc is way too small for fingers. iPad apps are optimized for using fingers... because they make shit bigger. For example I make music on my computer and iPad, but even on my 32” FHD screen, the software can make things look pretty small. I can’t imagine using that same software on a 12” device. It would be minuscule. Apps on the iPad, through, are sized properly so you don’t end up just using a mouse and squinting your eyes.

    This is still a tablet. And I would rather have a force touch trackpad than this. I can play games on the iPhone.

    iPad Pros do have 4 more CPU cores than the Surface Pro, though. I mean, in a nutshell, if you're going budget, get a Surface Pro. If you demand high amounts of storage, than you get an iPad Pro.

    They should optimise MacOS to work as well with a touch input instead of only with mouse and keyboard... It would be a versatile OS and could be used for Macs and iPads...

    Apple leads the way in poor quality hardware, using a time delay fuse called software. OOW and bam. Failure.

    As someone who has had an iPad Pro 10.5 inch for 6 months now, I feel it's best for media consumption and drawing for a hobby. As someone who's only other experience drawing is a $50 Wacom tablet, being able to see what I draw as I draw and being able to see my hand too makes drawing much easier for me. Also, I take my iPad wherever I go, because it's smaller than a laptop and good for RU-clip, and if I feel the need to draw something, I can.

    Apple is just slow in innovating. iOS is a joke. iOS is a jukebox of what you are not allowed to do rather than what you can do using it.
