    This is one of those devices that took me awhile to purchase because it was hard to believe I would be able to justify the cost versus the use. Turns out, I use it a lot more than I ever thought I would. (To clarify - I bought this over a year ago and am now reviewing it after using it extensively) This device has boosted my creativity by quite a bit. I am now reading regularly again (going digital was a tough choice, but so worth it in the end), and I am drawing again and scratching my artistic itch. Further, I went fully digital this semester in college and used this for my textbooks and note-taking and I've never felt more organized. I've taken good care of it and it still works like it's brand new. It's durable, fast and powerful. Great buy.

    Great hardware, still waiting for iOS 11....

    I upgraded from an iPad Air, and I'm ludicrously happy. Looking at the numbers, 10.5 doesn't seem that much bigger than 9.7, but the difference is notable. I was originally going for the 12.9", but after holding it, it just didn't make sense for my needs. The 10.5 screen hits the sweet spot for a tablet, and the speakers are phenomenal. The speed of apps is great, though as many have pointed out, app developers won't take advantage of the hardware until after iOS 11 releases. If you want a top-of-the-line-almost-laptop-replacement, this comes pretty close. Also, the 120hz screen makes streaming video look incredibly crisp, and you can pretty make out text no matter how fast you scroll. I also purchased the Smart Keyboard, and while I wish there were other options for the Smart Connector (only Logitech), the keyboard is a great addition if you do a lot of typing. All in all, I'd recommend it for anyone who needs a powerful tablet for work, or, you know, just really wants a pretty tablet for watching Game of Thrones on the go.

    I love my new iPad pro that can be both an iPad and mini laptop. I also bought the ZAGG Rugged Messenger Book Keyboard Folio Case, which is a great protector as well as a bluetooth keyboard. It props up the iPad like a laptop and almost immediately connects so that I can use the keyboard just as I would on my laptop. It took a little time to adjust to not having a trackpack for a mouse and touching the screen instead. The only real downside is that the commands for Google Drive, especially Sheets, do not work on the iPad. I am still figuring out how to navigate it more efficiently, as my work uses Google Drive for EVERYTHING. Right now, it's a very frustrating not to be able to make separate lines within a cell in Sheets, format things easily in a Google Doc, or have two Google Docs open at the same timed-why it lost a star for me. I'm hoping that I just need to learn how to speak iPad instead of laptop. Overall, if you are looking for a multitasking device for work and pleasure, I highly recommend the iPad Pro. Just make sure, you get enough memory.

    The "Best" I Pad I ever owned.

    I owned the original IPad, the IPad 2, the IPad Air 1, and the IPad Air 2 so far. I enjoyed every one of them. However, this iPad Pro 10.5 is the best without any doubt. The Apple Pencil works so well with this that it is really like using a pen to a paper. It took me some time to convince myself to invest 100 dollars for a stylus but once you use it, it is really worth the money. All I have to be careful is not to lose it or not to damage it. I use my iPad Pro for my note taking using Notability. I can also open up Safari at the same time using the dual screen function with Notabilty For the work that I do, I use a laptop but I use the iPad Pro 10.5 as a notebook. Not planning on having the iPad Pro as a replacement to the laptop. I am happy that I bought the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil.

    Marco is an awesome employee. He helped me with my last 2 big ticket purchases. He had helpful suggestions and was very knowledgeable about products. I truly believer he deserves a promotion. He not only made sure I was informed about the products I was looking at but also had suggestions that made my experience better. I will be sure to look for him the next time I come back. As for the IPad Pro 10.5 I am extremely satisfied with the product. I got it for school and it has made things so much easier. What sold me on this IPad was the pencil. I do a lot of math problems and working with a computer was out of the question. With the iPad Pro 10.5 I am able to pull up my homework, write the equation on my notepad, and read the E-text all at the same time. It works with Microsoft Office which is a must have for school. My travel load went from a 20 lb backpack to a 3-5 lb folder. Perfect for the student who wants to make things easier for themselves

    I purchased this to use in two main functions. 1. Graphics design/illustration: the fast refresh is amazing, and when using the Apple pencil it's much more fluid and intuitive to digital drawing. In the past, drawing tablets threw me off because of the latency between pens and the surface, but the iPad pro fixed that problem. I also added a matted screen protector which makes the movement of the Apple pencil feel more natural, like paper. 2. I planned to use this as a remote control surface for Logic Pro X recording software. I haven't used it yet, but knowing that it's a simple app feature that would allow me to finish multiple drum recording takes without leaving the drum seat and moving over to the recording desk makes me quite happy. The touch id feature is kind of wonky, but still cool. I like how the iOS and Mac OS integrate now, especially with my other products and their security features.

    Best iPad ever, on par performance with laptops

    I used to use my iPad Air 2 and my MacBook Pro for daily activities, but this new iPad Pro 10.5" replaces them both. It blows the iPad Air 2 out of the water and I even use my Mac less as well. The performance of the new iPad Pro is on par, and even beats out many laptops when doing CPU and GPU testing and comparing their performance metrics (google this and you can see). The 120hz refresh rate makes for an extremely smooth experience, the faster processor means you can run every app imaginable, and the screen size for the 10.5" is better than the 12.9" as it has smaller bezels on the side. You will get your money's worth with the 10.5" even over the 12.9" as this was something I also had to juggle. I highly recommend this device. I also pre-purchased the Logitech Slim Pro keyboard case (better protection and usability than the Apple keyboard case) and Zagg "glass" invisishield as my accessories, but you cannot get them from Best Buy yet.

    It was time to replace my antiquated desktop computer and I was considering a laptop when I went into my local Best Buy. Being an older consumer I’m definitely not tech savvy. After speaking to a sales person I started considering a tablet instead of a laptop since with the technology and accessories today, a tablet could do everything I was looking for while being even more portable. I’ve never spent this much on a tablet but since I was replacing my desktop I took the plunge. All I can say is WOW! The IPad Pro is lightening fast, exceptionally portable and the display is gorgeous! I purchased a folding Bluetooth keyboard, the Apple Pencil and a flash drive for extra storage and I’m set! An added bonus is the high quality camera! Loving my new setup and highly recommend the iPad Pro to anyone considering replacing their computer with a tablet.

    Worth the premium price

    Why do we pay a premium for Apple products? They may no longer have a particular feature first. They're never the lowest price. And you may think my justification fits other manufacturers, too. I hear you. But, geesh. The experience is always premium. The reliability is outstanding. The entire MAC ecosystem is designed to minimize frustration (ok, except the proprietary wires/ports), deter virus makers. and make solutions predictable. I spend less time solving nagging problems, recovering from hack attacks, or wondering if my unique alternative is going to be supported tomorrow or have any value when I want to upgrade. And if I need support, there is a person who loves the product and is willing and wanting to help sort things out. That's worth a premium to me.

    Love it! Love it! Love it! iPad Pro 10.5 is beautiful (I had iPad Air 2 that was great - until I saw better with the 9.7 Pro and 10.5 Pro (I got both - one for my daily commmute to/from work (9.7 Pro that I got a such a great low price); and one for my 'only at home' use (10.5 Pro that was on sale @ $50 price drop); This 10.5 is a pleasurable experience - I use it for work and pleasure - emails; internet browsing; video watching; book/magazine reading; games/puzzle. Did I say I LOVE this iPad too?! It's a beautiful item, just expensive! I'm not an artist; I just love the 4 amazing speakers, beautiful & amazing display, fast speed, more storage, etc.! I was so on the fence about buying these for myself because of the price but I'm so glad I decide to go for it. I worked hard a lot of years (38 & still counting), so I deserve to treat myself to something that gives me so much joy to use! You have to like/love Apple products to relate to this!

    Big Screen, small footprint, Awesome audio

    My wife absolutely loves this iPad! I upgraded from an Air2 ipad. This ipad packs a noticeably bigger screen into a slightly bigger footprint than the Air2. This allows her to still put it into her purse comfortably. The feature my wife likes the most is the robust audio from the 4 speakers. She plays lesson videos to students and no longer needs to plug in a speaker as she did with the Air2. It's loud enough for a group to gather around and easily hear the rich audio quality. She's not an artist and doesn't often need the pencil but the screen size allows her to enjoy the jigsaw puzzle games she likes to play. I got it as an anniversary present and she loves it.

    The best available

    The 10.5 iPad was on sale and I went in to Best Buy for a demonstration. My iPad was several years old and still serviceable but I was curious. The short demo was awesome and I bought one right there. Quite frankly, the new iPad is light years ahead of the older model. The screen is advertised as 20% larger than the 9.7 but it seems much more. The colors are much more vibrant and the speed of processor is lighting fast compared to my old one. The whole unit is much lighter and it has features not available on past models. I would recommend the 10.5 screen over the 9.7, as it is a considerable difference. You can notice it even in the print articles. Yes, this iPad is more expensive than some of the other models or other brands but it's worth the difference when you consider how much you will use it and it's future length of service.

    I've been using iPads alongside my MacBooks for most of my undergrad years, and even more so now that I'm working on a Master's degree. The storage space allows me to download all of my textbooks, programs, and documents, and still have a huge amount of space left for things like music and movies. The display is beautiful, and like most Apple products it's extremely easy to use; I would imagine even if Apple isn't your primary brand, these devices are relatively simple to set up and operate. I sometimes miss the handheld size of the iPad Mini, but this 10.5" size is great compared to the 12" pro; I've used those in the past, and they were just too large for me. Overall, you can't go wrong with this model, or just about any of the options in the iPad line up.

    I began searching for a reader for traveling, and of course ended up purchasing the most expensive reader you can purchase.... I decided I wanted to be able to watch movies as well on long flights. This was a good choice but as I was setting it up, I fat fingered a setting and the apple software would not let me back up. I call Best Buy for support, the person I spoke to said only apple can help, so I went across the shopping center to the Apple Store, and the personelle there showed absolutely no interest in assisting, and that if I wanted help I could leave it with them, and for a fee they may be able to fix it. I ended up calling Apple from the parking lot, and the phone tech was much more help, but I needed WIFI, so when I got home and was on WIFI, I called them back and they walked me through it

    The new model is not noticeably different, and not any way that make a difference. Screen size dis not make a difference, not did newer technology. The smaller size was a better grip, and better balance- meaning it was less likely to suffer accidental user damage. Get a full front and back cover. I had a cheap one and was happy with it- not so on my 11 and 12.9 ipads. They need expensive and heavy duty protection covers. Coloring and drawing saw no significant differences. Typing ability did not change by either model. The only thing that will change is how long before iOS support is revoked by its model year.

    I went to the store to purchase a tablet and was very unbiased on brand or operating system. For reference I have a Galaxy S7 phone that is great and also an iPod Touch from 2009 that still works great as well. I tried several tablets at the store and have friends and family with different tablets. I kept going back to the Apple tablet and for good reasons. The iPad Pro screen was much more responsive and the apps opened very quick. The general feel of the tablet is very sturdy and robust. I played a couple of games and the refresh rate is outstanding. One surprise was how well the camera takes pictures. They are as good or better than most cell phones. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a tablet. I don't care about the Android vs iOS messages, I just think this tablet rocks.

    Ok, most of the features on the new iPad are outstanding. There are a few that still have me scratching my head. Why would anybody want a tiny little popup on the side of an email? The print is to small to read, and it's very annoying. Plus it also opens up in your browser. So you still have to go to your browser to turn it off, or you can have a gazillion windows open. I like the slim style, although the extra 1/2 inch is also a head scratcher. I know! It's so you have to buy a new protective cover! Way to go Apple! Make me spend more money! Yes, this is overall a great product, a little more thought could have gone into reality though. What did I expect from a group of millenials?

    Couldn't be happier with this iPad! The differences, even between it and the iPad Pro 97, are appreciable. I love the new screen size, the extra room this size allows for the keyboard, the increased processing speed and the ability to use my Logitech Slim Combo keyboard case and Apple Pencil with it and recommend them as well. Both accessories have added to my enjoyment while using it. I found the 12.9" version too big for my needs but LOVE this 10.5" size. The camera is outstanding and Live Photos are a very nice feature. Can't beat the videos with this. Battery life is excellent even with the keyboard and pencil. In fact, it is hard to notice the battery drain from the keyboard (Smart Connection) and pen (Bluetooth). It's an anniversary present from my husband that I couldn't appreciate more! I (we) highly recommend this iPad Pro 10.5.

    Its like any other iPad Pro, size being different and screen resolutions, for any normal iPad user i would not recommend spending the extra money for the pro. However, for the artist i would definitely recommend. As a digital artist myself this iPad is worth the money, the amount of detail i can add to my drawings is amazing. My favorite apps works great on this iPad, procreate and Medibang are must haves, if you own one of these. the 10.5 model is a good size in between the 9.7 and 12.9 without making it seem like you are carrying around a large sketchbook. I would recommend buying the Urban Armor Gear case as it also has the apple pencil holder which makes it easier to transport with you.

    Amazing Apple iPad Pro 10.5

    I was a long time user of the Apple Mini. Had the original Mini and then the Mini 2. I had wanted to upgrade and had also decided to go to the bigger size. I had heard there was possibly going to be a size change so I waited until the announcement this year. I am very happy with the decision I made to go with the Pro and the 10.5 size. It was a huge step up from my Mini 2, both in power/speed as well as screen size. I think it is the perfect size, big enough for viewing and consuming media, yet still portable and easily held in one hand. I went with the Pro for the size of the screen but also for the ability to add the pencil and have the connector on the side for the Smart Keyboard. I would recommend this model to anyone that is thinking about upgrading and wants the ability to have the additional features. Highly recommended.
