iPad Pro 2018 Review: Almost a laptop replacement



Buy Apple iPad Pro on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2B4sti5

It wasn’t that long ago that a $2,000 Apple computer looked like this — it has a hinge, a big screen, a full-sized- keyboard and a handful of ports. Pretty standard stuff. Things… are a little different now. Apple has insisted for a few years now that the iPad is “the perfect expression of the future of computing,” so for some people, THIS new iPad Pro might be the $2,000 Apple computer to invest in.

  1. It replaced my laptop- and I’m an illustrator and designer – (get the hint?)

  2. paying for a $200 keyboard hurts my soul

  3. which application are you using for drawing?

  4. It would be good if you could play PS4 through it.

  5. It's the best tablet i think, just a shame it made by apple. Too many limitations for me and my workflow practice.

  6. I love my iPad BECAUSE it’s different from a computer. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t want it to be the same experience as using my Mac. I’ve never seen it as a laptop replacement. Great video, by the way!

  7. Local file management is not a "little computing task"

  8. Wait….

    There are other tablets

  9. Should i get this to study for GCSE or the surface pro 6. Will be using in class

  10. Can we get a review which reflects the reality that the vast majority of people aren’t artists and aren’t considering spending $2,000 to watch TV? I want to know about composing word docs, excel sheets, using outlook, etc. You know, adult things. Also, someone else mentioned students are left unserved by these videos. Assume some of us want to compose notes, research papers, emails, etc., using a handwriting to text app. How’s that work for $2K? If I was interested in drawing I’d get a box of crayons FFS!

  11. its so flexible that it can be like soggy biscuit. came here from jerryriggeverything#

  12. Amazing ipad. It’s a step away from the ipad we know. An a small step towards a laptop/computer.

  13. What is meant by right adapter

  14. How much does additional cost for apple to keep usb type c mouse or Bluetooth mouse n externwl hdd data connection with more pixel for camera.

  15. 2403 unread emails… how do you sleep at night?

  16. Once Apple stop worrying about the ipad pro taking away profits from the mac line then this will be all most of us will need

  17. What writing app is he using?

  18. it took me 5 minutes to understand how to use this.. my first time ever using it. its really not that difficult i am sure my mom could do it.

  19. I;be just bought one for an upgrade which is still to arrive. In the video the multi-tasking looks a lot slicker. I’m a bit concerned about Face ID, as I have a rare eye condition that means I have to wear rigid contact lenses, so I will need to pry things out with and without them in, to see if it makes any difference. The audio jack seems a strange move, since it’s marketed as a Pro device. I guess I;m going to Dongle Town like everyone else.

  20. As i student , i just wrote paper or did assignments on google docs, and i could copy and paste onto a word doc, or save the google doc as a regular document and turn it in. I love my ipad pro, its just a laptop does a lil more student based so maybe not fully replace, but there are ways to get by, if youre computer savvy and know shortcuts

  21. Good review. Nailed most of the failings of iPad to be a full computer replacements.
    For Local Document storage (and folder creation) I use 'Documents' by Readdle which is free, and great.
    Copying to other local file locations (like Pages, or my video editing software – LumaFusion) is an Export. Not the best, but not insurmountable.

  22. What application were you using to draw on the iPad?

  23. If glass broke you pay 650$ very thin glass iPad Pro 12.9

  24. "never seen it dip bellow 98%" as he is saying that it says 94% on the video….

  25. If iPad Pro is not durable then for $1,.000 /$2,000 very risky investment as not durability for men as how it protected if dropped.

  26. Guys you gotta stop. The iPad Pro is a TABLET, best tablet in the market hands down, apple nailed. It will not replace your laptop.

  27. already replaced my laptop with an ipad pro.  the ipad with ios 12 straight drags windows 10 through the mud.  ios is just reliable.  and again I will say don't do a review on a product if you don't know what's out there to support it.  there are wireless hard drives for the ipad pro that work great so the whole no external storage excuse is garbage. my work flow goes just fine with the ipad pro.  when I need it (and I rely on it heavily) it is ready to go the minute it is unlocked not waiting on a windows update before I can work. people's workflow vary and you can't say that the ipad couldn't replace a laptop because I guarantee half the people on this post don't do what I do and my ipad handles everything I throw at it and its last year's model.

  28. Dude, you can create a folder in Files on your iPad Pro if you want. You could also download an attachment form Gmail there too. Ugh, there are things that Apple should address like desktop Safari for iPad Pro, you don’t need to add things that you can do to that list…..

  29. My biggest complaint about the ipad and the most important reason for me not to make it my laptop replacement is the lack of a mouse. Just the thought of using word or excel with my fingers makes me lose my temper.

  30. Don’t buy if glass brake you need to buy new
