    I just bought the new 12.9 inch iPad Pro with 512 GB of memory. I had been using a second generation iPad with a 9 inch screen and only 32 GB of memory, so this purchase represented quite an upgrade. I also bought the Apple Pencil as an accessory, which I highly recommend. Together the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil provide a lot of functionality that i could not get with my older iPad. There are also a bunch of new apps that have been written specifically for the iPad Pro. One thing i am excited to try are the apps aimed at teaching kids how to write upper and lower case block letters and numbers. The app presents the outline of a character with directional arrows and the child uses the Apple Pencil to trace over the character's shape. My grand daughter is going to love this! I have not yet began to explore the iPad Pro's other capabilities. There is so much to learn. I am also happy with the fact that Apple is now including word processing software "Pages" as a standard app on the iPad Pro. This will really come in useful as one reason I purchased the larger format iPad was to replace my older MacBook laptop. On the down side - I don't think it makes sense for Apple to deny users the convenience of a USB port and a memory card slot at this price point (the WiFi-only version of the 12.9 inch iPad Pro with AppleCare, the Apple Pencil and the Logitech Keyboard Case cost me over 1,400 USD). I think it would also make sense to enable mouse functionality like the Microsoft Surface Pro has. The other negative is that the enhanced size of the 12.9 inch iPad Pro comes at the cost of increased weight. With or without the case, this iPad is heavy to hold comfortably for long periods of time. And for this reason, I highly recommend purchasing a case with a kick-board stand. The new generation of keyboards (Apple / Logitech) are all powered directly from contact points on the iPad. This is nice as it eliminates the need for separately charging or replacing the keyboard's batteries. The Logitech keyboard is also backlit, which is a great feature. But these keyboards do not communicate with the iPad once they are detached. Overall, this is a great product and the bundle of accessories I purchased represented a good use of resources. Not a "bargain" product by any stretch of the imagination, but like all the Apple products I have owned, a good value.

    I love my new ipad pro! I already own an ipad mini and have a windows laptop that has been getting slower and slower to use. So I decided it was time to look for new laptops mainly because I have lots of music and have a business that I help run, so I was looking for something that was very versatile. I was all ready to purchase a macbook, but the new ipad pro really caught my attention with all the new features coming with the brand new ios this fall and with the designer apps available. The 2 things that really cemented my decision was that the ipad can store 512gb of space, which is as much as the macbook can hold and you are able to purchase the apple pencil and smart keyboard, which I highly recommend if you plan on purchasing the ipad pro. The 12.9 screen size was annoying at first, but I am used to it now and actually do prefer it over the smaller sized ipad. I felt the smaller ipad was a little too small for what I use it for. Please keep in mind that this doesn't fully replace a laptop, there are some restrictions as would normally get with an ipad, but it is still very versatile and I find it perfect for what I need it for.

    I'm PC, but I needed something else

    I've been PC for over 30 years. I've used Apple products and use to own Mac pros. But, I always go back to PC. I needed something lighter to travel with, but had to be large enough to showcase my photos. I also needed something widely used by the industry. So, I'm replacing my HP Spectre X360 laptop, with this tablet. So far, it's been great. It's fast. I use the pen a lot, to make adjustments on my photos. I love that there isn't any lag, when using the pen. I own Wacom products and the pen outperforms it. Of course, it's an additional purchase. I just don't like having smudges all over the screen, when I'm trying to showcase my photos. Being only WiFi is fine. Nowadays, it's almost everywhere. I also purchased the keyboard, again, so I don't have to touch the screen. Plus, it protects the screen. The colors are amazing. The SOUND...WOW, WOW, WOW! I'm very impressed by this tablet.

    Great iPad, if you need an ipad

    Let's be honest, you don't need this item. Buying this is more than likely an unwise decision financially. But if you want one anyway and are willing to use money better spent on something else (or money you don't have) this product is for you. It is beautiful, it works great. At the time of this review it is the most current, and top of the line iPad! If that sort of thing pleases your ego, then this product will temporarily be right for you! Like all Apple products, this iPad is planned to be obsolete far before it physically wears out. In that sense, the quality is great, and will be great even after you throw it into the dump when Apple releases its next version, or maybe the one after that, if you have an abundance of will power (or a drop of common sense). I bought the gold one because of my wife's position that the gold one is "just so pretty." If you like expensive pretty things that will be slowly, and methodically disabled by a corporation over 2-3 years, this item will be ideal for you. Don't forget the pencil and keyboard. Always remember that buying stuff makes you happy!

    I have a 2010 iPad that I love but in recent years it has been slowing down to the point of uselessness even after wiping it out and restoring it to factory settings. With the purchase of this new iPad Pro, it does most everything I need on the road without having to lug around a full-sized laptop, but at the same time, provides a larger screen and a real keyboard (Apple Smart Keyboard/cover) I can use instead of my iPhone. It's fast and the display is terrific. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the built in speakers. I purchased the Apple Pencil also and love it. My only gripe is that Apple does not make a protective case for it (with a Apple Pencil holder) and does not make a leash for the Apple Pencil cap so that the cap does not get lost. It seems I have to purchase aftermarket for all those. With 512GB of memory, I'm looking forward to this iPad lasting me at least another 7+ years.

    Saw a good deal on an Ipad pro jumped on it right away, it was greasy and dirty when i took it out of its box, had to wipe it off and get it cleaned up, since it looked like it had been passed around and used for some time, didnt come with any instructions or product info, emailed apple the serial # to find out if it was the newest withe the best chip out now, and it was, had me worried since it was so dirty. Cleaned up good got it set up and running, same time had a new p c set up both, Ipad up and runing within half hour. P c laptop three and half hours later still waiting for all updates, once got p c runing went on internet for youtube app only to get a virus message. . Done with windows computer gonna save up for apple products from now on. Ipad pro is supposed to be better than most laptops

    I debated about whether to get the smaller iPad or the larger one, and ultimately decided to spring for the larger one. This, coupled with an Apple Pencil, has been a wonderful tool to bridge the more tactile analog world, and the glassy digital world. I love being able to hand-write notes and do quick sketches (helpful in my line of work), and especially love being able to do artwork and compose music by hand in a much more intuitive way. My only annoyance is that it is SO big, you almost HAVE to use it on a tabletop. It is heavy and hard on the wrists to have to hold and use for very long without some kind of support. Still, worth it for the screen real estate in combo with the Apple Pencil.

    It just works

    I upgraded from my 1st generation 12.9" iPad Pro since I was about to run out of storage space on the 128GB model. This unit is just as responsive, and it's reassuring knowing the added horsepower should run new apps and iOS 11 without complaints. With 512GB of storage, I imported my entire music collection and several 1GB+ apps which I didn't dare load onto the 128GB iPad. This was $100 dollars more than the 1st generation model, but I now have almost 400GB more storage available. I will leave it to others to comment on any improvements they might see in speed and screen quality. Were it not for my need for the additional storage, I probably would have held off on upgrading so soon since the 1st generation model worked flawlessly for me.
