  • Apple’s new iPad Pro is a beast of a tablet, and Nilay Patel reviews it -- everything from its new design and screen to plugging in several devices to the new USB-C port. Dami Lee and William Joel, professional creatives at The Verge, also give their insight into the new iPad and Apple Pencil.


    Here's a link to buy the iPad Pro:

    "I don't want to adapt to my computer, I want my computer to adapt to me." THIS IS THE BEST LINE IN ANY REVIEW.Brutal review here. I love it. These are the issues that have always kept me from getting one.

    Simple...Do you draw? - Get an iPad Pro. You don’t draw? - Get a laptop

    The I pad can be good for note taking for students as it’s proven if you hand write notes u remember them more

    It's a shame about the software. I have a 2017 12.9 pro and I never came close to the limits of the A10x processor. This A12x is great and all but just a gimmick at this point as there isn't one app to take advantage of that properly. Apple really needs to redesign iOS from ground up to make this thing useful, or just make a modified macOS version.

    Finally, a not-overenthusiastic, systematic, comprehensive review of this thing from a professional's perspective. Thumbs up Nilay!

    Can you get a girlfriend? Clearly not you snivelling, cockwombling spunktrumpet. Just buy both unless you live in a ditch.

    Too expensive and has limitations, we can buy a cool windows tablet and have better experience.

    This would be an instant buy for me if it would support desktop apps…

    Definitely agree with you on that. I love the form factor and the hardware if they had mac os on this it would kill the sales of the macbook laptops.

    Just need Logic and I'd buy, the thought of music creation with an LTE enabled device is godly.
