    Since it has now been a few months, I'm curious how people are liking their new iPads? Is it still as fast and responsive as when you bought it? Are you having trouble or are disappointed in how the iPad is working?

    In my case, I've been quite happy with my iPad. It still is fast and works very well. I've had iOS 11 on my iPad for the last month and a half, or so, and it seems to do quite well -- and I like the changes they've made for the iPad. While I still wish it had anti-glare protection, I haven't had any real issues, knew that it could be an issue, and installed a screen protector to help. I have no complaints about the screen brightness or colors.

    So, what has your experience been like?

    I have mine for 3 months already, and quite liking it, in combination with a physical keyboard from Logitech it has become my go-to computational device for work, since most of my work only involves word processing and spreadsheets, the iPad has become more than sufficient, I rarely open my laptop now unless i need to type in huge amount of numbers in my shop management app.

    That’s great to hear! A lot of people are starting to replace their computers with iPads.

    Apple should really bundle these things with slim functional keyboards, not another chic afterthought like the smart keyboards but the rigid ones you can actually use to use the ipad on your lap, would really launch these devices further IMO

    Apple probably had lightness and portability in mind.

    Really good considering the value for money. Although some compromises are there such as the screen, it's fast and works well.

    Well I just picked up my first iPad yesterday. $50 off up here in Canada with our lame Black Friday sales.
    So far I am really impressed and enjoying it. I only wanted an iPad for browsing and such. I think this will do perfectly.
    Now I am completely invested into the Apple ecosystem. Just a few months ago I was am Android/Chrome fanboy. Now I am rocking a MacBook, 8+, and the iPad. Should be set now!!!

    Ooo you guys are a bad influence. It was hard enough convincing the other half getting the new iPad so close to Xmas.
    But....there won’t be any giving up. There is always something else I can get!

    I really like my 2017 iPad! No complaints whatsoever about the device itself. My only complaint is that there is no genuine Apple Smart Case for it. I had one for my iPad Mini 4, and loved it.

    There is an Apple Smart Cover for the iPad, you can find them on the Apple website. They should also be available at Apple Stores, though they may not have them on display -- you might have to get someone to get one from the back.

    Thanks, yes I had seen this. This is the Smart Cover, but I also want the Smart Case. I checked at an Apple store a couple weeks ago, and a genuine Apple Smart Case for the 2017 iPad doesn't exist.

    Sorry, I misread apparently. It seems as if Apple has gone away from the Smart Cases, as I don't believe they have them for the iPad Pros, either.

    There are a wide variety of cases made for the iPad that have the same functionality as the Smart Cover, which perhaps is part of why Apple no longer makes them.
