What about physical shops like Hachi Tech, Best Denki? Doing any promotion? I heard Courts Megastore has some offers?

There is a difference bet Smart Keyboard and Smart Keyboard folio right. One is simply a keyboard while the other is a keyboard that folds to become a casing too.

Actually the folio can buy from Taobao at $20. I think the folio is great for portability. Is the keyboard really necessary?

Keyboard depends on your needs. For me it’s a must and first accessory I got together with the IPP. I take my IPP to meetings and take notes very frequently. So keyboard is a must. The Apple keyboard is so light and intuitive! No need Bluetooth even. Super nice and needed for me. Enjoy your toys!

Personally, if you were to use iPad Pro for work (Keyboard + iPad Pro), a better option will be buying MacBook Air. This is due to the full fledge Mac OS software and also the flexibility to run windows.

iPad Pro is use mainly for social media, entertainment + a little bit of work (emails, some reading, simple editing). Using it 24/7 with keyboard doesn't seems very viable in my opinion

Hope some users can share their experience.

really depend how u use it. useful for taking notes (esp students), drawing, etc. its a portable device, so if u want to use keyboard, snap the Smart Keyboard, if u want to draw or go portable, remove the keyboard, etc etc

the device is so powerful now...edit photo , video on the run


but if one purchase the iPad Pro just for just social media, entertainment

Not true. The ipad when used with keyboard works very well. I have friends who have been doing that N it’s very viable. Much more portable than MacBook Air. To buy the ipp Pro for entertainment n media and simple work is under utilise it

I choose iPad over MacBook is due to
1) Photoediting softwares that are powerfully becoming available to iPad.
2) Feels more comfortable editing photos with a pencil than a mouse.
3) can do photo editing on iPad lying in bed and on a table but MacBook u can only a table.

For my I choose the bigger iPad over MacBook is all becos of photoediting at a more relaxed posture.
Like I go to Some coffee joints locally or overseas, I can just find a seat and start working on the pics I taken. With MacBook, u need to find a table.
And for those who suka post Instagram and fb, current iPad is really very portable,ergonomics and powerful and a 11” will do.
