    Hey, ok, so I bought an iPad Pro. My plan was to have this be my primary device, which means, I would use my macbook pro less and less.

    The main work function I need is to work on Quickbooks in the office. We do not have a server , we are a small manufacturer. I have tried using virtual box, but its doggy. I really need a way to run Quickbooks here in the office environment. Any suggestions.

    Also, I am a little disappointed that with all the power this table has, that we dont have any desk top quality applications. I am hoping for some more functionality in the coming months.

    So, any tools anyone can suggest that will allow the table to replace my macbook pro (2011), would be awesome!

    You could use a Remote Desktop app to run Quickbooks on a dedicated machine and control it from your iPad Pro. I do this often with Parallels Desktop as they have a iOS app that will allow you to control the virtual machine.

    Agree. I've tried running virtual box. We don't have a server and its so so slow. Almost unusable

    Wish I could pay 5 to 10 a month for a cloud pc and connect to our qb database while in the office
