Now that the new iPad Pro 9.7" is out and has rendered the 12.9" model obsolete (worse cameras, no True Tone display technology, etc.), how long do you think it'll take for Apple to update the 12.9 model?

>> No.54157694

Who cares? The ipad pro blows

>> No.54157776

>>54157694
I tried one in store with the Pencil, it doesn't blow at all. I mean, if you think of it only as a graphics tablet, sure. But as a combined graphics tablet + laptop replacement, it's actually pretty incredible.

My main gripe is I won't buy the 12.9" model until it has true tone display etc. Fuck paying more for a gimped machine.

It uses an arm processor so it can't run any useful programs. The surface pro 3 is much better (uses x86 processor) especially since it has a microsd slot.

See pic related.

Also

64GB SSD + 128GB microsd (192GB total), i3, 4GB RAM Surface Pro = $650

128GB ipad pro + $99 dick pencil = $1,000 or more

Don't be a retard, don't get an ipad pro. There's nothing "pro" about it.

An ipad mini or samsung tablet does a better job.

The ipad pro is a joke.

OP here. I agree with you, but I have a powerful desktop I use for gaming, so I'd only need a laptop for word processing and internet browsing. As such, the iPad Pro is fine, since no tablet out there can be used as a word processor/fb machine.

Well yeah the ipad pro is only good for playing angry birds but the surface pro can be used to get things done. Agreed.

There's literally no scenario where an iPad pro would be "fine". It's essentially a big bulky oversized and super overpriced iPhone.

iPad pro has better internals than the mini and a better size as well
small tablets are shit.

If you like android better I guess samsung could be better but I dont see it.

That's really fucking stupid. Real professional/hobby artists use pic related or something cheaper. The stylus input on the ipad pro and surface pro is shit for drawing.

You've clearly never tried the pencil then, it's much nicer than you'd expect. Feels like you're really using a pencil on paper.
Also the wacom can't be used as a laptop replacement.

Also you can easily run a VM of android on the surface pro tablet if the superior desktop versions of "apps" are too amazing for you.

have you actually used a Windows based tablet? because I have, and it's absolute garbage because 99% of websites are not designed for tablets, and almost every single app on the Windows store is terrible compared to its Android / iOS counterpart.

Sure there is. If you want a device that plays videos and allows you to read that you need to carry around, a tablet easily beats out a laptop.

What do you mean not designed for tablets? All the websites work just fine on Chrome.

Windows tablets are also the only tablets with a proper Browser and a proper adblocker.

Mobile designed sites are trash.

and the UX is worse with a tablet than with a mouse, because they weren't designed for touch input.

The ipad pro is a horrible choice especially as a tablet. see >>54157893

In addition to being overpriced it has no microsd slot. You know we're like months away from a 256GB microsd card being released right?

Except you just use your fingers instead of a mouse. 99% of sites work just fine since Chrome on the desktop also has touchscreen features.

Don't sd cards have much lower read and transfer speeds? It would seem like it would be troublesome to manage a card that big.

Also a tablet should be as light as possible and running desktop apps isn't necessary when all you want to do is watch videos and read.

Not at all look at the pic on >>54157893. You tell me those read/write speeds are "slow".


>Also a tablet should be as light as possible and running desktop apps isn't necessary when all you want to do is watch videos and read.
Then get a fucking ipad mini/surface pro. The ipad pro is literally a waste of your hard earned money. I'm telling you this as an apple user myself.
