    Well, I went ahead and purchased the Pencil since I can't track down a Smart Keyboard locally. I've just been using it as a stylus thus far, but it's proving to be quite handy. Still, it is not a necessity for me, but it's a keeper...

    I broke the bank and purchased the iPad Pro 9.7 inch with 256GB of memory and LTE; I ordered the keyboard and pen, and AppleCare+, all at the same time.

    I must be outta my mind.
    Pen came first...then the keyboard and iPad pro on same day, march 31st.
    Now a case.
    A leather one to protect the back. if it works with the Apple keyboard good, if not I'll sell the keyboard. I don't think I'll type enough on it in the long run.

    Whose got an idea on cases?

    I just walked in to the Apple Store in Manchester and got a 9.7" 32GB Silver no problems.

    I am upgrading from the iPad Air 1.

    So far I am very pleased, more responsive. I'm loving the TouchID, the sound and Truetone display are superb.

    Hi Wallace. I noticed one thing. Going from a iPad 1 to the pro. There is some screen difference (realestate difference). The pro like the Air 2 has a bit thinner width com pared to previous models. How is that for you?

    Going from the Air 1 to the Pro (9.7") I honestly haven't noticed any difference in the screen size or bezel. To be honest, I always thought the screen on the Air 1 was too thin. It almost sounded hollow if you tapped it, and certainly flexed a bit under slight pressure. The Pro's screen, however, is truly gorgeous. Colours are vibrant, and I do love TrueTone. But, as I say, I haven't noticed any difference in screen size 'realestate'.

    Yeah, getting the iPad Pro and the Pencil is a breeze, but finding the Smart Keyboard for it is proving to be quite difficult, thus far...

    I've been busy setting up my ipad pro that I didn't even bother posting here so my ipad arrived Tuesday even earlier than they stated when I paid for expedited shipping so I'm super happy about that. I'm still held back slightly because my keyboard is arriving separately and should he coming here today so very excited about that. I'm still on the fence about the Apple Pencil though I think I'll head into an Apple Store and see if I can get some real life experience before I make my decision.

    I ordered the 256 GB model with the keyboard case and Pencil the minute the Apple Store app allowed me to! I'm hoping to use it as a desktop/laptop replacement for 90% of my computing. *fingers crossed*
    How is this working or for you? I would like to do the same thing.

    From bad things come good I suppose:

    Last night my 64 GB Air slipped out of my hands and landed on the (tiled) floor screen first. Screen is completely shattered now. Did some soul searching and decided a repair was impossible to justify on a three year old iPad. Replacing it today with a 256 GB + Cellular Gold Pro. Waiting only for the Apple store to open. Already have my order in!

    I hadn't planned on buying an iPad this year, continuing to save for a new iMac was the plan, but I am very much looking forward to finally having a fully loaded iPad.

    It's fate, my friend......Anyway, let us know your thoughts on your new iPad Pro when you get it, if you don't mind.

    Well here are some day one thoughts.

    When I went to restore from backup, I realized my last backup was from last August! Unfortunately, I'd already wiped my broken Air so I was SOL. Fortunately after restoring and updating, I only had to reload a few apps by hand. Remember to keep your backups in place!

    True Tone is shockingly good. I always considered the iPad rather inferior to my kindle for ebooks but the improved visual clarity makes me think eye strain won't be as much of an issue. That's a killer feature for me as it means I can get rid of another old device.

    The speakers are outstanding. I am a bit spoiled as my Mac has about $400 worth of audio equipment but compared to any mobile device or laptop I've ever used, the audio clarity of the iPad Pro rocks. I've never seriously used my iPad for video as I usually use my 13" Pro or my desktop Mac, which has dual 27" displays. However, the audio is good enough on this device that I might start using it for Netflix.

    I am glad the weight and form factor remain constant from the Air. I absolutely loved my Air and the Pro feels like essentially the same device. Touch ID is very welcome as well. I've grown to love it on my iPhone.

    I haven't run any games or intense apps yet but for basic stuff, I don't see a huge difference in performance. This is less a criticism of the Pro and more a comment about how the first gen Air is still an amazing device.

    My Apple Store didn't have any Verizon sims so I can't use my cellular modem yet.

    Switching to the gold was well worth it. I've kind of wanted it since the first Air but kept buying silver so all my devices would match. The gold really makes it stand out and look like a premium device though.

    To be honest I would not have gotten the Pro if I hadn't broken my Air but it is certainly a quality product and the improved True Tone display seems like a huge improvement that should make Air and Air 2 owners consider an upgrade.

    I won't get the pencil or keyboard for a couple months but I'm looking forward to using them. They were on my Air 3 wish list so it's great that we will get them in this form factor.

    As a final note, the guys at the store were showing off the 12.9" Pro while I was there. It was my first chance to play with one. Wow! Those things are huge! I'm a big guy (6'4" 300 lbs) and they seem like to much even for me. I'll stick with my MacBook but I can see the appeal of the big iPad.

    The question about future proofing and the small Pro only going with 2 GB's of RAM instead of 4 like the big Pro is how well it handles OS updates past this year.

    I think it'll be fine. Apple is not foolish enough to paint themselves into a corner that soon or even in the foreseeable future. Heck, even the iPhone 5 handled every update Apple threw at it until recently with iOS9! I'm not concerned...

    Oh they have before. You recall iPad 3? 6 months later they had to release a 4th gen iPad because the 3 was too underpowered with Retina display. The original iPad was super slow after the first major update. The iPhone 4 was very underpowered after 1st major update. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus had many issues with multitasking because the lack of RAM.

    Not foolish enough?

    I guess it's all in your expectations. Our family has had two iPhone 6's and I wouldn't say they have underperformed at all with heavy use.

    So... a bit late to the game, but having the iPad 2 since it came out I finally decided to pass that device down to one of my boys and get myself a Rose Gold Baby Pro through Verizon. I kind of struggled a bit on the storage decision, but seeing how I used my iPad 2 with 16gb I opted for the 32gb on the Baby. I thought about getting the pencil and the smart keyboard but IDK maybe I'll hit up eBay for those, lol.

    Congratulations! Going from a 2 to an iPad Pro is going to blow your mind. The speed and screen differences are night and day.

    I grabbed a brand new smart keyboard for $100 on eBay. I'd say thats a good way to save a little bit of money.

    Just arrived today!! Thats a great price for the keyboard... I'd been watching a couple of auctions too but I think I'd get more use out of the pen than the keyboard right now.
