The iPad Pro is Apple’s most fully realized example yet of the future of computing, with a workhorse of a processor and a beautiful 12.9-inch Retina display packed inside a svelte, ultraportable design.
Current limitations with iOS apps prevent it from being a PC replacement for the most demanding tasks, and at $799 it won’t appeal to casual users, but we are confident the iPad Pro will carve out a niche in the high-end market.
Editor’s note: This review encompasses just the iPad Pro itself. Accessories like the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard are sold separately, and as such, will be reviewed separately within their own context.
Apple’s giant-sized iPad certainly makes an equally giant impression out of the box: This tablet is big. How you feel about a monstrous tablet of this size likely won’t change after using it —ï¿½some users prefer portability, while others will appreciate the added real estate and processing power.
Regardless, we’re of the mind that it’s a good thing the iPad Pro exists. It’s a sign that Apple plans to continue pushing forward with the platform in new and interesting ways, making the device a more formidable PC replacement for higher end users.
