Anyone compare ipad pro and MS surface pro before?
I have both. IPad pro is an amazing machine to surf internet, read email, watch YouTube, read magazine etc... If you need to do real work, better get surface pro

any pencil user? how often u use?
Very often.

Surfing web, clicking around, and especially scrolling feels really good. (Many reviewers seem to focus on writing and drawing with it only)

Play games also good, esp those that need drag and drop a lot like Bloons or Clash of Clans.

Best experience to try is go Apple Store, try it for as long as you want.

been using the ipad pro for 2 months ... maybe shld have gotten the 9.7-inch ipad .. cos my use cases so far only reading, browsing, videos.

tried to do some work on the ipad pro, but system interface does not work well with mobile safari.

kinda of expensive to have 1K tablet to just read, browse news, watch videos. waiting for ios 11 to be available to see if i can make more meaningful use of the tablet ..

if only my office laptop is a macbook .. it would have been more useful ...

I have Surface Pro, iPad Pro 10.5" and 12.9", in the process to see if iPad Pro 10.5" can replace Surface Pro as my traveling laptop. If not for Excel files, it should be workable. We should see. IPad Pro 12.9" is great to read/edit long PDF files and also for watching video.

Same thoughts.. but I must say I enjoy the stereo speakers a lot on the iPad Pro.

same thoughts. now after 2 weeks of exam
prep, using goodnotes and ios11 features, back to normal read, social media and netflix.

I have MB2015, MBP2011 and now trying to justify if work can be done in ipad pro 10.5.

probably if u travel a lot by public transport, conduct presentations to clients or an influenzer who need to blog about anything, well this got some roi to already.

but for us tech geeks, we always wanted to be ahead, curious of whats the latest changes.

I belive the change of 9.7 to 10.5 is pretty much significant.

now how to justify the 10.5 with KB & pencil if unjust use it in bed and by plainly browsing, movies and social media. hahahaha

use for 1 week, then return liao. i realise its pointless to have it unless one writes/draw/sign with it
I also find no use for it for my case. More of a want then need
