    Just purchase iPad Pro 10.2" 256GB Space Gray Wi-Fi model. It took me forever t decide to spend the $800+.

    It replaces my iPad Mini 2 and will be surfing the internet, YouTubing, Netflix, Amazon Prime and DirecTVNow watching. What was the deciding factor was the 4GBs of DDRLP4 RAM. My Mini only has 1GB of old DDRLP3 RAM. I purchase the Mini 2 with cellular inside and 128GB for $600. So $200 more did not seem that expensive if you think about it in that comparison price point. I am going pass on the iPhone X since it going cost $1,400 for 256GB model with sales tax included.

    It is still in it box and I probably will be setting it up tomorrow.

    I'm tempted but in 1.5 years it looks like the Apple Pencil still has a long way to go to be as useful as a Surface pen with OneNote. I'd love to learn that's not true.

    Having a MacBook also makes it really hard to pay the iPad Pro prices.

    I'd love to be told differently but the Pro iPad models still look like a whole lot of money to do less.

    The new Apple ad showing the kid with Pro as a laptop should help my stock price over the holidays but I'm an IT professional so a real laptop looks like a MacBook.

    I'm not a drawer so latency with the pen is a non issue. I actually barely use it but I do use it enough to warrant keeping it. I also have a Note 8 as my phone and tbh I just use my pens to write notes or over screenshots of my screen which is helpful.


    I still use my laptop for gaming or my MacBook for other stuff lol but my iPad is my go to for portable media viewing when I'm at home to lazy to power on my TV or Xbox one x.

    I’m tempted but I really can’t justify the expense: I didn’t upgrade my phone to save money, but then my man’s laptop died (MBP 2010) so we got the 15” MBP with the task bar and all the goodies so really, NO.
    This Guppy will be good.


    Now y’all quit being such a bad influence on my bank account damnit.

    I'm giving my 128GB Air 2 to my daughter and will be getting a 256GB 10.5" iPP for Christmas. I justified by recognizing that as I'm old and retired, I've earned it. Pretty solid reasoning.

    Hey Evilguppy -

    I remember you from over on the Android forums - have you kept any of those devices? I have the S7 Edge phone and 8" Galaxy Tab S2 tablet in use with a couple of Nexus 7's and an Asus TF700T boxed away. The Note 4 became a media device for my wife. On the iOS side, my Air 2 is giving way to the 10.5.

    Yes it is, I opted for the Zagg case keyboard because she is a little clumsy and looked like it would add better protection.

    Great choice, it has backlit keys too if I’m not wrong.

    I opted to buy a 2017 MacBook Pro and gave my 10.5” iPad Pro to my wife. While I love my MacBook, I really miss my iPad Pro. I find myself always wanting to do something on a larger device, but not enough to want to pull out the MacBook. I’m debating getting myself another one soon, or waiting for the next one to come out. Any rumors on the next iPad Pro yet?

    It’s still going to be awhile before Apple announce the next-gen iPP. Is it worth the wait? Not really if you’re like me who plans on upgrading annually.

    I’d recommend getting the 10.5” now, and enjoy it. You can always sell it later to upgrade to the newer iPP.

    I think I am going to just get one now. My wife only uses it for drawing and playing games - so maybe I'll look for a good deal on the 9.7" iPP for her and snag my 10.5" back

    I’m not exactly new to the iPad . I actually owned almost every model they launched (iPad, iPad 2, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad Air2), including the Mini 4 my younger son is still using.
    BTW this one is the first I really think could replace my notebook.
    My habits changed in the last years, and maybe my 2015 MacBook Pro will be the last MacBook in my long list...
