If you are getting AppleCare+ then you can definitely skip it.

TP does not affect the apple pencil, if you draw a lot Apple pencil is useful. To me pencil is a must been using Procreate for the longest time. Keyboard is good but when in handheld mode not so.

Procreate is awesome, I'm just bummed about the number of layers, dunno how many this new ipadpro can accommodate.

Wow I didn’t expect that it would be difficult to choose between the 11 inch and 12.9 inch version. In my experience hands on at the shop, both are compelling devices. The 12.9 inch surprisingly doesn’t feel gigantic at all.

In the end I chose the 11 inch over the 12.9 inch version. I feel that the 12.9 inch when looking at website, it’s gorgeous but just a tad too big. Like really the text and pictures on a website shown on the screen is just in your face kinda feeling.

I tried the 11 inch keyboard and I didn’t feel too small to use, hence I went for the 11 inch one. It’s more potable in my opinion and I see myself carrying the iPad out often.

I echo your thoughts, esp the comment about it being "in your face"

Since its the year end and some of us are going overseas.

Anyone planning to purchase the iPad Pro 11/12.9 at iStudio at the Airport Outlet?

The idea of less 7% GST is very tempting and furthermore, iStudio list their products on iShopChangiPortal and up to 0.3% - 5% off (depending on type of credit cards) for online purchases.

Anyone have the experience of purchasing Apple Products there before departure/arrival.. will we get charged 7% if we buy and fly overseas then come back?

Dependent on canvas size and dpi bah.

Seems like they are hyping Photoshop more than Procreate for this new release, I hate the former's subscription format tho.

Only 7% off, no further discount, stocks are available but low. Currently only 11" 256GB Space Grey and must pick up when departure, need to open and use to avoid entering with GST (if they check on you)

I tried a few times for overseas friends. I don’t like the service and I am forced to buy some bundles at one time. Lol! Save 7% but spend more on useless stuff. If you don’t buy bundle, you can’t buy the item. Some references

For me, I won’t want to risk saving 7% and screwed the whole purchase which cost > $1500
