    The best tablet, period

    Apple in my opinion has the corner on the tablet market more then any other device market right now. Sure, the iphone is debatably a great smartphone, but talk to any android fanboy and you'll leave second guessing. However, after using the new ipad pro for a month I can confidently say that its capability to act as a great media consumption device and paper replacement is impeccable and additionally it is a the best tablet on the planet at this moment. Yes, the surface pro is a computer, but the app store from Apple is filling up with more and more software every day. Additionally, I urge anyone to compare geekbench scores comparing ipad to surface pro. The multi-core performance on this device is outrageous. I do think it worth saying that this is NOT a computer replacement. The split screen view is good for light multitasking, but if you need to do heavy research it will not occur as fast with this device. That being said, the amazing part about what apple has built here is it is possible to do pretty much any "standard" task you would do with a laptop. I want to add some additional comments on the note taking abilities of this tablet. The apple pencil paired with the ipad pro is THE best e-ink device i have ever used. The only thing that keeps me from believing it is paper is the glassy texture. Some people complain about this and even buy screen protectors to mimic paper. However, I do not mind it all as it really is just a pet peeve more then a functional hinderance in my opinion. The notability app has been helping me through school and the ability to annotate textbooks, homework, and integrate them in real time while in lecture has literally changed the way i experience college. May sound like hyperbole, but if you put this device to work and take advantage of the right apps in the correct ways the ipad will not falter. Also, the processor on this has not stuttered once ever since getting it. The six core processing power shows during use along with the 100% seamless 120hz touch refresh rate. I want to leave this review with a statement about the cons. Overall, I have been nothing but impressed, but something that irked me about the whole experience purchasing this was the cost of accessories. Additionally, although the ipad is not a laptop replacement there will be times that you will need to type some on screen. It is awkward typing on the big screen like it is a phone and whenever i do i wish i had the smart keyboard, but it is over a $100! even a $100 I could go with, but well over it makes the device a lot more expensive then its base prince not to mention the ~$90 for the pencil. Throw in $50 for a UAG case and suddenly you're ipad is ~%50 more expensive. These issues are to be expected with apple products I suppose, but it feels deceptive. However, if you know what you're getting here, the utility it can offer is great for those that need it. I cannot recommend it enough especially for those with businesses or in education/college.

    I don't think anyone would dispute that an iPad pro wouldn't stand up to expectations. I was hesitant to get the pro over the regular iPad, what would really be the difference? (1) The iPad starts at 32GB, which I thought would be enough, but once apps and everything was installed, I would only have 10GB to space! The iPad pro (double the cost of the regular iPad) starts at 64GB of storage. This gives me a lot of wiggle room and then I don't have to worry. (2) The iPad pro really does respond well to the Apple pen. I haven't tried any other pen with the iPad pro yet, but I like that this option is here. As a college student who is always on the go, I'm glad to have this technology. (3) Speakers! The regular iPad only has speakers on the bottom of the device. On the other hand, the iPad pro has speakers on the top and bottom. This made a difference to me. (4) I like the idea that the iPad pro is meant to work with a keyboard. I know that most tablets would work with any bluetooth keyboard, but the iPad pro is meant to work great with the Apple iPad Pro keyboard. (5) The front facing camera on the regular iPad is a huge disappointment when compared to the iPad pro (or even the iPhone 7, which came out about 6 months before the iPads). I don't really use this feature, but to know that I am paying for a quality product, and the best that Apple can provide isn't included makes me less happy with the purchase. So, buying the iPad pro makes me think that I am buying the best tablet on the market now, which makes me feel good. (6) Lastly, I am an Apple user. I really considered getting Samsung's flagship tablet, since it seemed to basically stand up to the test without fail. However, I have a MacBook and an iPhone and my life would just be easier if I stuck with Apple. Overall, I gave the iPad pro 4 stars because it matched my expectations for an Apple device, which are high. It is a great tablet and will certainly prove it's use! However, there isn't much that seems revolutionary with this device. I'm sure that it will work great with iOS 11 that is coming soon.

    I purchased this during a Best Buy promotion at a discounted price during a pre-Black Friday sale. I was looking for a basic iPad to supplement my iPad Mini 2 that I use all the time. I think it’s a great size for tablet computing- it’s much easier on the eyes to read than the iPad Mini and the keyboard is larger which allows for easier typing for emails, text messages, etc. I also considered the iPad 2018 9.7 inch model. Again Best Buy offered a very good pre-Black Friday price on the 9.7-inch model. I was not interested in the brand new iPad Pro line from 2018 as that was much more than I needed, but if you want the latest and greatest, check out the new ones! I compared the two side-by-side. The iPad 9.7 offered a tremendous value at the sale price and was a strong contender. I found it remarkably fast and responsive. The clarity of the screen is good, and it made for a definite upgrade over my old iPad Mini 2. However, I felt that the screen had too much glare and sounded a little plastic-like when tapped since it is not fully laminated. Visually, the air gap under the screen did not seem to be an issue. In the end, it was more a factor of the feel of the screen and the glare that of the 9.7-inch that was the deciding factor in the end. The iPad Pro 10.5 offered some additional features that I liked so I felt in the long run it was worth the extra money. Specifically, I thought the screen was superior to that of the 9.7-inch iPad. The screen is fully laminated and has a non-glare appearance. It also has four speakers and a faster processor. It is compatible with smart keyboards (not just Bluetooth keyboards), and it wasn’t that much bigger than the 9.7 inch version. I felt it was worth the difference in price for the quality that it provided. It might be hard to argue spending the extra money for this over the 9.7-inch iPad, unless you get this on sale. Also, at the regular price, this is not that much less expensive than the new 2018 iPad Pro model. However, if you can get those on sale it offers a tremendous value.

    I haven’t used an iPad in a while. I have just been using my phone for everything. Plus I have my desk top at home and work and even a lap top. I don’t use my lap top very often because it is big and not easy to carry around. I love to draw and I have seen a lot of people go paperless because of the pen. I wanted something that would be easy to do layouts for customers and something I can easly take notes on. I used to have a samsung note 8 and would use the pen, but still found the phone hard to write on for long notes. I also didn’t want to break the bank getting the newest iPad Pro, considering I wasn’t sure how much I would be using it. Soooo....after looking at the newest iPad and this pro, I picked the pro because of the pen. Everything I saw, suggested if you wanted to use the pen, the pro would be a better option. Even though I can see this wouldn’t replace a desk top...they are getting really close to making that possiable. I bought one of the cases with the keyboard (using it now) and it feels amazing and I have enough room to type. I also, wasn’t sure about the size. If the 10.5 would be big enough. YES...it is big enough. I don’t know if I would like to be any bigger. This is a good size to give me enough room to look at everything, type, draw, and carry around with ease. Fits in my purse and isn’t heavy. The pen charges really fast. SInce you have to use the first gen pen, I didn’t like the way you have to charge it. But honestly, it take 8 min for the pen to fully charge and that doesn’t cause any issues. I can see how someone may lose the lid to the pen easy, and I will be buying something to attach to make sure I don’t lose it. :) The speed is amazing. I have taken ALOT of pictures and I haven’t ran out of speed or space with everything I have done. I got the 64gb. SInce most of my stuff is on cloud, I didn’t see the point in paying the extra for more space. The sound is amazing on it. The battery has been good. I use it and when I am not, I plug it in. Doesn’t seem to drain any more then I would normally expect it to. I love the pen. I think it was the best thing that IPads could have. If you like to draw, or want to go paperless. This is the way to go. I love that I have a pen to draw when I don’t want to type notes out. Or attach my keyboard and type away. Either way, it really opens a lot of doors for staying organized and being more productive.

    I got this iPad for work. The iPad is so versatile that I don’t even use my MacBook anymore. Every electronic I have is Apple, this includes my Apple TV, watch, phone, MacBook and old iPad. Speed - This iPad is so fast even with tons of apps open and all the files I’ve dropped in it. Slender - it’s so thin that it fits anywhere which I love. I’m able to toss it in my purse and go. It’s also so light. I used to carry my mackbook pro everywhere and it was so heavy. This is a huge reason I switched. Sound - there are speakers on both sides of the iPad instead of one which makes the sound much Louder. However, I wish the iPad had a sound switch similar to the iPhone. It would be great if it vibrated instead of blaring ringtones for the days I’m in a meeting. I’d like to know I received some notification without the sound sometimes. Accessories - I have not purchased the stylus or keyboard YET, but I can’t wait. The iPad quickly goes from a tablet to a laptop. This is convenient for the days I just need a note pad and I can easily readjust to just a tablet or the days I need to type long winded documents. I wish I had this in college. Apps - I’ve got every Microsoft office app. My desktop at the office is a dell and I can easily access work documents from my office desktop when I’m out of the office. Plus most of these documents go into my file folder on the iPad. Another thing I love is one note where I can have so many notes that are quickly organized. Photos - the photo quality is superb! It’s clear and bright. This also goes to resolution. The screen is amazing and extremely vivid. I’d hate for someone to zoom in on my teeth on a photo of me! I am absolutely happy that I finally bought the iPad. It’s a great investment for school or work!!!

    This was bought with the intention of using it as a drawing tablet. I wasn’t sure it would live up to my expectations in that regard, but it did and then some. Paired with the Apple Pencil, it is a powerful tool for graphic design. I have used mine to create fashion sketches as part of my job and have been pleased with most aspects of using it for this. There is a learning curve, but it has mostly been a matter of narrowing down available apps to find the most usable and effective. A big bonus has been that I have found it very useful for creating mood and presentation boards as well. Doing so is quick and easy and professional results can be realized after mastering the apps used. This is a powerful bonus. I’ve also been very pleased with using this as a more traditional tablet. It has replaced my old Samsung tab as my reader and has become my go to for surfing the web. If I had bought this first, I honestly wouldn’t have purchased the MacBook Air, as this tablet is more convenient and I also have an iMac for my bigger computing needs. It is definitely worth a research trip on the web for any professionals who are wondering if a tablet is worth looking at. The list of traditionalist graphic artists who find that using an Apple tablet has become more than just feasible when combined with the Apple Pencil is growing. My only regret is that I hesitated to go for the largest size available. I would move up in size if I had the chance to do it all again.

    Amazing Tablet

    I recently purchased this tablet and I couldn't be happier. I previously had a 3rd generation ipad, so this is a HUGE improvement in many different areas. The first thing that jumps out to you is the clarity of the screen. I am a professional photographer and the Ipad Pro is literally the clearest I've ever seen my photos. The amount of pixels on screens is mind blowing. The other major thing I love is the weight. The ipad weighs in it at roughly one pound so it barely feels like you're holding it. Apple hasn't released iOS publicly yet, but if you search hard enough you can find the beta on the internet. iOS 11 gives the ipad a completely different feel. It feels more like a computer now than a laptop. The amount of features they added are amazing! The battery life is pretty sound so far. I was worried about the strength of the screen sucking down battery life but surprisingly its lasted quite long! I see no reason why you shouldn't upgrade to this ipad if you're looking for a new model. The differences between the air and the pro are significant!

    Well, I am one who was on the fence for buying a $700 tablet in 2018. I am a proud Note 8 owner and recently had an iPad mini 3 that I traded in for the iPad Pro. I must say I am blown away by its performance. I did not believe the hype about this tablet, but I stand corrected. The reviews were spot on and this has to be the best tablet on the planet. Well worth the trade in as performance is night and day compared to the iPad min 3. I am not a huge Apple person, I use it mainly for media consumuption, but this iPad can do so much more. I have to yet to tinker with the other features, but it is a pleasure to use this on a daily basis. Highly recommend especially if you can find a deal like I did with trading in an older iPad - special that Best Buy has this month for your old device. I got a great deal of $525 out the door with trade. If you are in the market for a tablet or wanting to upgrade, you can't go wrong with the iPad Pro 10.5. BTW, yes I was considering the new iPad 2018, but compared to the iPad Pro, the extra $300 was well worth it and you can bet Apple will support the iPad Pro for at least the next 5-7 years - it is future proof!!

    Best Apple Product for the Everyday Artist

    I'm in love with this model. It's not too big, not too small, just the perfect Goldilocks size of an iPad for anyone. I draw a lot & to save paper this iPad & the Apple Pen is the best thing Apple ever invented. There's very little lag time drawing (I use Tayasui Sketches & ProCreate app) and it's so smooth. You just have to get used to the minor gap from screen with pen, but that's technology for you but it's as close to the real thing as you can get. Trust me, I completely understand the tangibility and love of using real pen/cil & paper, but this is the next best thing. I've turned it into a regular fun painting, drawing, scribbling, journaling tablet, but it's more than capable of being used as a small laptop too with the right keyboard (ZAGG Rugged Messenger is my choice). I got the Surface Pro 4 before this & by far this iPad blows it out of the water for me. Sure I'm a little biased but I think the iPad works for the classic hand-drawing & digital artist whereas the SP4 is more for architects/engineers (the apps for the Surface Pro are more CAD-friendly I feel). Definitely recommend for all around fun use whether or not you're an artist, but if you are: get this product. 7/5

    Best Tablet Experience Yet/Laptop Replacement

    Posted

    I have owned both a MacBook and an iPad concurrently since the iPad was originally introduced back in 2010. Four models since then, and none have even scratched the surface of what a MacBook is capable of...until now. I purchased this iPad within 10 minutes of using the demo version. I knew right away that this model was something very different from the iPads I had owned in the past. Pairing the Apple Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil with this device truly transforms it into a fully capable laptop replacement and even goes beyond what a laptop can do with the extreme precision of the Apple Pencil and touch functionality. I do a lot of photo editing and manipulation in pretty heavy software suites like Photoshop and Illustrator, and that is something I never even dared to attempt on a iPad. But with this newest model, I challenged myself to give it a shot, and I was able to produce exemplary results in less time than if I were to do the same/similar editing on my MacBook. This device is a winner all around, and you really can't even argue with the price point for what it is. Impeccable design and quality across the board, as we all have come to expect from Apple. The narrower bezel and the screen resolution are outstanding. Four speakers produce accurate and rich audio in a wide range of volumes. OS speed is snappy, and has no signs of lagging or stuttering even after over a month of use. I would recommend this over a MacBook any day if you don't do a ton of graphic design or data heavy processes.

    Outstanding improvement over regular iPads

    I've not had the 10.5" iPad Pro long enough to learn to utilize all its myriad 'bells & whistles', but even for the simple uses I'm familiar with it's a VAST improvement over the iPad 3 I upgraded from. Lightning-fast responsiveness and FAR faster downloads of everything I've attempted to date. It's even faster than my 'late 2012 Mac mini'! Paired with a Logitech K811 multi-device keyboard (which is also AMAZING) I'm tempted to use it more than the desktop! In addition to desktop use I can use it in bed, which isn't possible with any desktop type device. I'm certain it will be a joy to use when traveling. The Rose Gold color is elegant! It's beauty heightens the joy I feel every time I pick it up. It also doesn't have the 'bend' issues the newest model is reported to have some of the time and it was much less expensive*. The Retina screen is the best I've yet seen... I love my new device and would recommend it to anyone without reservation! *The best part is I got it in a 1 or 2 day sale at the lowest price I saw anywhere in the 2 months I shopped before buying it! Even lower than Ebay sellers offered it for. Kudos to both Apple and to Best Buy for FAR superior products and availability at better prices.

    Best tablet hands down

    I previously had the 9.7'' iPad Pro model from last year, and through Best Buy's sale price and trading in that prior iPad, I was able to upgrade to the 10.5'' at a very reasonable price. That being said, this tablet is amazing. While I'm heavy into the apple ecosystem, and the iPad works flawlessly within it, I can objectively say that many aspects of the iPad Pro make it the best in the market. The screen size is perfect while essentially holding the same build footprint as the previous model, the speakers are phenomenal, the screen is bright and crisp and the 120 hz refresh "pro-motion" makes everything run extremely smooth and makes the Apple Pencil even better. The implimentation of ios11 makes accessing any files I have on my laptop desktop a complete breeze directly from my iPad and increases productivity ten-fold. I haven't tried it with the apple keyboard yet, so I can't completely recommend it as the tablet that will outright replace your laptop or desktop, however it gets close. As a college student, I still carry my laptop essentially everywhere, however, if I had to solely use the iPad in situations for brief-periods of time, it is definitely up for the task. Also, despite upgrading from a year-old model, all of the brand new upgrades still made me feel like I was getting a whole new device.

    iPad Pro 10.5 - Better fit than 9.7

    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    I have used several iPads since iPad 2. My last was iPad mini 4. As good as iPads have been since the original, the latest 10.5 with Apple Pencil took it to another level that no other competing device has attempted. Since getting this iPad 10.5, I rarely touch my $700 Lenovo Yoga laptop. Though I can see the Laptop being pulled out for full fledge multi page work. But so far, for 90% of my daily interactions with media/technology, this iPad has comfortably met and exceeded my needs without a second thought of a laptop. Cons: Yes, there are some cons. As good as iPads are in general, there are still a few areas that screams for attention. 1) Multi-user profile - whereby two people can use the same iPad with separate IDs but without seeing or altering each other's account settings, background preferences, as well as media contents. Similar to what we have on computers. 2) Apple please make it easier to add and remove devices to iTunes Family Sharing account as needed. Currently, when you associate your iPad to one account, to remove and add it to another family sharing account requires 60-90 day wait period for that to happen. That's outrageous.

    This is my 3rd iPad, I have a 12.9 pro and a mini 4. The 10.5 is by far my favorite size out of the three. I don't like that Apple advertises it as it can replace a laptop, which it cannot in any sense. I use a Surface 2017 as my laptop and it does amazing, but the Surface Pen does not come close to the Apple Pencil. The way that the Apple Pencil follows me as I am writing is awesome, I only take my handwritten notes on my 10.5. Its light enough to where I don't holding it while writing. I would just recommend getting a glass screen protector as it saved my 12.9 countless times, and get a light hard back cover for the 10.5. I love the Apple Smart Keyboard with my 12.9, it works nearly flawlessly, I barely have to tap on the key and it follows me exactly. The 10.5 is a solid iPad, I went to the store to buy the new 6th generation iPad...but it was SUPER THICK. I was like are you sure this isn't the first or second generation?! I decided I would spend the extra $150 to get the pro. Its view is perfect, the TrueTone setting really makes a difference! I love my iPad pro 10.5 in. I will be using it for years to come.

    My Wife's 2nd Ipad

    For Christmas, I bought my wife the newest Ipad as a present. Her first one was 7 years old. It's absolutely the BEST present I ever have given her, Both of them, plus it's given me many more hours to myself to work on my own projects. After setting her new one up, I am TOTALLY considering buying one for myself. I have several Laptops & 1 Desk Top. The Ipad will do everything plus some compared to the rest of mine. You can purchase the HyperDrive - USB Type-C Hub for Select Apple products, and you can do anything any gaming laptop will do. I love the HDMI connection. Here is the SKU info: Model:GN28B-GRAY SKU:5833400, Look it up. I posted this accessory as it "totally" has me sold on the Ipads. My wife loves her new Ipad, and it's 5 times faster vs. her old one. I wish I could have afforded more than 64 GB memory, but I bought a separate thumb drive for her pictures. I can only give this product a "2" Thumbs up as that's all I have. I would buy another one tomorrow if needed.

    Older processor but more speakers & better camera

    This is not my first iPad. I was thinking of buying the iPad pro 10.5 about the same when the new iPad air 10.5 was available, because I liked the idea of a keyboard that connected directly to the ipad's internal battery and was tried of bluetooth's typing lag. But which to get? iPad Air 2019 or the older iPad Pro 2017? They are very similar, both have smart keyboard, touchid, phone jack, lighting connector, 64GB of storage and 10.5 inch screen. These are features that I like! Both iPads where the same price, but I decided on the iPad pro 2017 even thought it had the older A10X processor, bluetooth 4,2 and slower LTE Advanced wifi because iPad pro does come with four speakers instead of two, a 12 megapixel instead of 8 megapixel camera, and a 120 Hz instead of 60 Hz screen refresh rate. Conclusion, the iPad pro 2017 had better features I would use more often at the same price.

    Amazing Screen

    The screen quality is definitely amazing and this device is fast. The standard iPad is already pretty good in build/display quality and if you don't need writing abilities, the cost is much better for what you get. However, if you want the best tablet there is, the iPad Pro has no comparisons. I've tried Android tablets and the software for Android tablets is no where near the iPad's. There are definitely good Android phone software, but somehow there is not for tablets. The iPad is great for watching movies in amazing quality by the bed and the speakers are far better than the standard iPad. The standard iPad has sound coming from one speaker, while the iPad pro has four speakers with nice trebles and bass during movies. The writing abilities with paired with the Apple Pencil are more smoother than the Microsoft Surface. I use OneNote on the Surface and the iPad Pro and the software is much less prone to crashing on the iPad than the Surface. Overall, if you want a device that turns on instantly, has natural writing feel to it, lasts a long time, great build, and an amazing display, the iPad Pro currently has no equal.

    Newest iPad Pro -- not just for professionals

    Owned many generations of iPads and each new version is always speedy and well-made. The thinner bezel design definitely looks nicer than previous versions and expands the available screen size without increasing overall size. The device remains very portable and light and there are a multitude of cases and accessories depending on how you want to use it. Add a thick, rubber case if you have kids or will be expecting rugged use. Add a folding case if you plan to use it on table surfaces. Add a keyboard for typing and a stylus for writing/drawing. The new 64GB base model should be sufficient for most people unless you plan to have a ton of apps or videos. It should already hold tons of plain photos. You can get the regular iPad for cheaper, but the screen does not auto-adjust to light, which may affect your battery life. Though the regular iPad processor is one generation behind, I don't think most will notice much difference in usual use.

    This is actually the second iPad that I have owned, my first one was a 3rd Generation - you know, the one that was released with the retina display, but only about 6 months before they switched over to the lightning connector. This device is incredibly responsive, and functions very well with the add-on keyboard case as well. Incredibly light, and durable. I initially purchased on a whim as I was having issues with my computer, and the application I needed had an iOS compatible version, but this was well worth the cost. Being able to do split screen with Google Analytics, and run MS Powerpoint and get that project done was a very functional application. 5/5 Apple - given that I was able to stretch a 7 year lifespan out of my previous iPad (and can still use for limited applications), I expect the same out of this!

    I purchased this item as a way to access my e-mail and pay bills while being confined to bed following a medical procedure. I had never used an iPhone, iPod, or any other portable device that can be used to access the internet. I was confounded at first and struggled a bit when I discovered that there are essentially no printed instructions; however, after downloading the instruction manual and reviewing it in iBooks, I found this item fairly easy to use. There are a few things about it that frustrate me. But, l am sure that I will either adjust, or learn what I’m doing wrong. After purchase, Best Buy offers instruction/set-up free of charge. For individuals such as me, who have limited knowledge and experience with such technology, it would be a good idea to make an appointment to do so. With these things being said, I am happy with this product and am pleased that I chose it.
