    Default iPad Pro: Are you buying one?

    Now that the iPad Pro is available to order - and I can't stop checking the specs, adding them to my shopping cart... fighting the temptation.... ughhhh!

    Additional screen size makes this more of a content creating device vs a content consuming device. I think this bridges the gap between the two nicely. Not a fan of a $170 keyboard or a $100 stylus, but we'll see if I end up picking up either of those as I start using the pro.

    This is the first iPad that's peeked my interest but I haven't decided as of yet

    My purchase list looks exactly the same. Still, I ordered my iPad Pro this morning. This will be my last Apple device purchase until the next iPhone.

    Sorry Apple... not interested in this one. Too big, too expensive and not a device I need (or really want) in any way. A bigger version of a device that's just a bigger iPhone (we all can agree despite early issues with calling the iPad simply a "bigger iPhone" -- that's exactly what it is...). We'll see what this device becomes, but for now I'll pass.

    $1049 in Canada? Plus $129 and $229 for the pencil and keyboard respectively. That is $1,589 after taxes for an iPad. My macbook pro retina didn't even cost that much last year. Its for some people, but not for me at that price. I'll pass on this one.

    It's certainly a beautiful device, but I have no need for one, and the price for me is too high for a "want."

    negative Star Command. 9" tablet is "just right" for me and regardless I don't think there is anything out yet that the original iPad Air can't handle.

    Jump from T-Mobile - not my first iPad nor my first LTE but it is my first 128gb version.

    Can't wait till next Wednesday

    The purchase has made a HUGE dent in my wallet, that's for sure (I opted for the LTE model with full array of accessories); you certainly make a point (the USD-to-CAD price disparity is very substantial these days). That being said, I have always found iPads to be a very good investment. They last very long (I still have a fully functional iPad 2 with cracked screen that seems not be hampered by the damage), and the battery life is insanely good.

    Cheers!

    I agree that they are a good investment-at the right price; this is completely subjective. And I agree that they last long as many Apple products do. It may just come down to personal preference but if I was going to spend $1,589 in an Apple store it would be on a Macbook. The Canadian prices for this is way too high and this is not Apple's fault. It just kinda sucks because this would be a must-have for me if the price was right and at the moment it isn't. Its just unbelievable that I paid less for my Retina Macbook Pro.

    No. It's too big. I'll stick with my iPad Air 2. I have a 15" 2015 MBP for my real work.

    Ordered mine through Verizon yesterday and will retire my older MacBook Pro as a music server for my home theatre. Hopefully, I'll be able to make the transition for using the bigger Pro as my go to device. We will see.

    Default iPad Pro: Are you buying one?

    The iPad Pro is a REALLY cool device, don't get me wrong, but I don't feel like I'm missing out on something by not having it. So it's a "NO" for the time being. My 6s Plus and MacBook Pro have everything covered.

    No, because I intend to win one from iMore. Seriously, I'm undecided. I use my iPad every day for reading and the Pro strikes me as too big for that. BUT, I also use it nearly every day in meetings and it would be great for that.

    No, I won't be buying one. I love my ipad air 2 and I already have the iMac and Air laptop. I dont have a need for a huge iPad. It doesnt bring any thing to the table that I don't already have but all is not lost, i did buy the Apple TV.

    I'm not getting one. I have the iPad mini 4- for me it's a good size and weight.

    I need a laptop more than an iPad. I need to be able to sync with iTunes.

    I got it first day, no doubt there is a learning curve. I am an amateur photographer so I'm hoping to get use in that arena.

    As far as those talking about price, it is only $220 dollars more than a similar equipped Air 2. But it is as big as a 13" MacBook Pro.
