no la u cannot compare like tat.

ooo i jus realize that they remove the 128gb for ipad air 2 =/

tat time i bought the ipad air 2 128gb w 4G for $1288. so comparing both the difference is around $70.

if those with existing ipad air 2 no point upgrading. but for those intending to upgrade still consider ok ba.
Of course can lah. You know the saying, cut your coat according to your cloth.

I did not know an iPad Air 2 with 128GB costs so much then, it now costs $858 refurbished.

Also, at $1358, the GST amount almost comes up to $89. If can wait, can always consider buying when stocks are plentiful while at the airport. Also, $1258 can buy almost buy a brand new latest 13" MBP.

Well if you have the iPad Air 2, you will definitely feel slower now than when it was launched. Word processing and photo editing feel slower too. If for casual use and content consumption, yes iPad Air 2 is still a very fast device. iPad Pro is aim at a different market segment.

It's more like either you go fast or go home



Look under "Chip"

http://www.apple.com/sg/ipad/compare/

Can look for reviews soon comparing the benchmarks too.
imo, if one were to use for productivity, why not get a bigger screen? tats y i rather go big on this one. and it's not like it's extremely tough to work on the Air 2's processor. plus the cash savings is a plus.

mbp is a different kind of product with different features. hence, if it's just to do work, that ipad pro premium pricing is ok. It is now possible to do work on ios and pretty much every other content consumption type of thing.

but then again, some may just buy the Surface pro which takes it a step further, also at another price point.

I have Surface Pro 4, it's very good/productive as a notebook PC for travel but too heavy as a tablet just like iPad Pro 12.9. I am curious to find out if iPad Pro 9.7 will work as a travel notebook with the connected keyboard. I am using Air2 with a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard, does not work well, too clumsy for excel files.

Yes just go with 9.7" screen for the better screen which is needed in your case while gaming on 9.7' handheld is much better.

This one depends on your needs bro. Do you need constant 4G? If not just get the WiFi version and tether to your phone whenever you need data connection.

Can turn on for 24/7 if you have enough battery juice. It won't eat up data so long no devices is connected to the hotspot.
