    Finally. The perfect desktop companion device

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I needed a drawing tablet for my high-end desktops (iMac 5K and custom Windows 10 tower). With this 12.9" iPad Pro, I can use an app to pass pen input to the PCs, great for apps like Photoshop and Mudbox (Duet on iOS). Other devices could do this too, like a laptop with pen input or cintiq tablet, but I can find several ways the iPad Pro is a superior companion device to my high-end desktops. The screen is incredible. It is very bright and ProMotion makes every movement silky smooth. Daytime-use was no problem in this Florida Summer cookout weather. The iPad Pro is surprisingly light and thin (it feels lighter than my old iPad 4). It looks and feels like you're drawing directly on the screen, and the mobile apps for drawings and productivity are better than any other tablet this mobile. It sounds better than expected too - loud and full sounding (better than MacBook Pro). When I need to access my desktop, the same remote management apps I use for my clients and personal desktops works with iOS. In a single long-tap, I can remote in and control my desktop (over a personal hotspot, too). I use this iPad Pro for note-taking in meetings. The Pencil input for markup and notes is better than my old paper notepad. As a developer, I've been testing iOS 11 on it for a few weeks and I love the way it handles multi-tasking and split-view. Drag & Drop on this near 13" screen is desktop-level functionality but totally optimized for touch-mobility. It took a moment to get used to how many new interactions there are, but it feels completely natural now. Some think pointer-input is required for it to be a "pro" device, but personally I find the Pencil to be more accurate than a Mouse, and the touch interface to work better with my fingers and those types of 'pointers' than an old cursor. Every app and interface is designed for touch and gestures, not a mouse. Overall, the 2017 12.9" iPad Pro is the perfect companion device to those with a high-end desktop that need some portability, a device that is the best at what it does, and offers simple ways to extend the functionality when needed. In a lot of ways, if I don't need my desktop's raw power, I see this being my primary device for most everyday computing needs.

    Best Purchase I’ve Made!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I am a very heavy tablet user. I am always watching Netflix and YouTube, and I was looking for something rather than my bulky laptop to take with me to college. When I first saw the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, I was ecstatic about the screen size for my media consumption and schoolwork, but nervous that it would be too large and bulky to carry around and use comfortably. After owning it for almost 2 months, I can confirm that it has exceeded all my expectations. The screen is massive, but the device is so light that it’s comfortable to carry. I’ve never found the size to be an inconvenience, and I’ve never regretted my choosing the larger option. As I stated, I’m not necessarily the typical user. For most people, I think the 9.7 or 10.5-inch models would be more than enough. If you aren’t someone that needs the huge screen and you don’t want the IOS software, there’s definitely a lot of better options that are easier on your wallet. But if you’re a college student and heavy media consumer who already owns a laptop, but needs a little more than a regular tablet, this device will be perfect for you. I ordered the open-box certified version because of the cheaper price, and If it wasn’t for the "geeksquad certified" tape around the box, I never would have known it wasn’t brand new. It came in the original packaging with all the original accessories. No physical imperfections, no software issues, just a perfectly-working iPad for a better price. I will absolutely shop with Best Buy again.

    I previously had an ipad pro 9.7. When the new ipads came out I wasn't impressed with the new 10.5. While it looks very nice I though the screen could have been bigger. So I made the jump to the 12.9 and I couldn't be happier. I love how big the screen is and the response time it has is awesome. Being able to read things easily and see pictures and games on this screen is awesome. The ipad is super fast and the touch ID works great. Scrolling looks much improved over older ipads with the new 120 refresh rate. I didn't buy the new smart keyboard because my old Anker bluetooth keyboards from my 9.7 ipad pro works fine with this new ipad. For me the apple smart keyboard didn't offer enough value. But you can easily type on this huge 12.9 screen with the full on screen keyboard if you want, it's a vast step up from the smaller on screen keyboards on the 9.7 ipad. The only downside with this ipad is it is big to hold. You will want a stand or case to rest it on. Speaking of which none of the cases i saw at best buy on launch week (6/18/17) were made for this ipad. Old generation 1 Ipad pro 12.9 cases will fit it, but they block the camera sensor/flash on this new ipad.

    iPad great but customer service poor

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I went in to purchase the 12.9 iPad listed @$599.00. Unfortunately it was no longer available and I ended up purchasing the iPad for $749.00 as we had a $51 trade in from our 6 year old iPad. Along with that we had a price match so the iPad price was actually $698.00 our total out the door price once we bought the Smart Cover came to $847.11 much more than the original price of $599 that drew me into the store. However as it was a Christmas gift and the Apple agent was so helpful and transferred all our data from the old iPad to the new we left satisfied. Less than a week later Best Buy had the same iPad listed as a door buster. I went in the next day to request the new price not knowing that one must respond within hours to the door buster price. The customer service person at the counter truly does not belong there! She looked at my sales receipt and with a smirk replied that as I had already received a matching price I could not receive a price adjustment. Additionally the door buster price was no longer valid though I had gone down to the store the next day to request the price adjustment. This customer service representative was adamant that there was nothing she could do and she said this curtly. I explained that this was a large purchase for me and that additionally I had had to purchase a new iPhone less than one week prior as mine was lost. So in the space of a week I had spent over $1200 at Best Buy. The customer service representative refused to budge and was not even nice about it. Her attitude combined with the fact that I could not receive a $50 price adjustment marred what could have been a satisfying purchase and experience with Best Buy. I was saddened by this poor interaction with the customer service person at Best Buy and suggest that Best Buy truly train their staff better. Not sure I will purchase at Best Buy again.

    Beautiful Screen For Getting Work Done

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I purchased the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2017) to replace an older Samsung TabPro running Android. I wanted a large tablet for my day-to-day. The iPad Pro has a beautiful screen featuring true-to-life colors. This slate is big, but for me it is a great size for getting work done (I am not a creative professional). I coupled my iPad Pro with the Logitech Slim Combo keyboard case, which is indispensible. Applications open quickly and run smoothly. iOS 11 makes this unit, and further displays how good iOS will keep getting with each new revision. While I have not used multi tasking to the full extent yet, it works very nicely on the big screen for those apps that support it. Coming from an Android tablet, iOS feels less customizable. Its just easier to make the home screen what you want with icon arrangement and widgets on the Android devices. Also, the 12w charger that comes with the iPad Pro is inadequate. For a unit that supports faster charging, the bundled charger will not do the job. I recently ordered a 29w usb-c charger and cord for my device, which should provide the fast charging that this beastly beauty requires.

    Best for school

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I owned the 10.5in pro and both of these work great. Instead of using paper to write down notes or do homework I use the ipad. It is fast and easy to write out what I need and if I make a mistake I can just back space it. Saves time on erasing. If your professor has a power point they give out and goes over in class you can download it and write on that. I use the app called Notability. And say you do your homework with it? You can print it out when you’re don’t and hand it in! Wait what if you have to submit your homework online? It already puts it into a PDF form! So upload that baby now! This works best with having a google drive so everything can be saved as a PDF and it won’t take up memory on your IPad. Over all the best the way to go and I bought the big guy because there is so much more room to write in it. Also I ou can use the split screen and it’s almost like having two iPads side by side. It has made my college life so much easier.

    Absolutely the best iPad I've ever owned!!


    I bought this iPad pro 12.9 a couple days ago after months of researching professional reviews and user reviews, after numerous hours and hours if research, and waiting to see if Apple would release a new iPad pro mid year (2018), I finally said go BIG or go home and boy is this thing amazing! I've been a iOS user for 10 years plus I've owned over a dozen different iPad models and this one completely blows the rest out of the water, the processor, the screen resolution, the camera, the battery life of twelve hours plus,multi tasking, weight everything about this tablet is top of the line and more than abalone would need, I made the decision to pair it with the apple pencil and that only adds to the excellence, if your looking for the tip top of the line package and the best of the best this is it!! Go Apple!!

    Great device for digital artists

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I was on the fence about purchasing this product over a well known tablet that was marketed towards digital artists. However, I am happy to say that I believe buying the 12.9in iPad Pro was the best decision for my needs as a digital artist on the go. The iPad pro is fairly large but it is not too heavy for me to lug around in my backpack while heading to class. I love that the iPad Pro offers a sense of mobility that I could not have with a traditional computer + drawing tablet setup. I am a college student, and I often find myself with downtime in between classes where I want to start sketching then and there, and the iPad allows me to do just that. I could not reccomend the iPad Pro accompanied with the Apple Pencil enough for digital artists, avid note takers, and writers who want to be set free from their desks.
