    At 12.9" on the diagonal, this is the largest iPad ever produced by Apple.

    It also features an A9X chip with 64-bit architecture and an M9 motion coprocessor.

    Other features:
    - Touch ID
    - 4 speakers
    - Smart Connector (for the Smart Keyboard)

    I'm not really in the market for a tablet, nor a laptop, nor any other device, but this I'm getting.

    It was such a bad idea to watch the event. Now I want this, plus the pencil, plus the keyboard.

    I'm greatly intrigued by the iPad Pro, especially because of the greater possibilities introduced by the larger screen and Apple Pencil. I had plans to buy Pencil by FifthThree, but I guess that isn't happening anymore.

    I'm looking forward to using the pencil with AstroPad!

    Others are complaining that it doesn't have 3D Touch unlike the new iPhones. Of course, knowing Apple, this will be on version 2.0.

    Still on the fence though, a new Mac or this?

    From the initial looks, it's very simiilar to the Surface Pro, only with a smaller processor and ios apps only at the moment.

    You know you want it, folks… clear up your card balances and enjoy shopping! In my sights: iPad Pro, pencil and smart keyboard, lavender Apple iPhone 6 + case, new TV with Siri Remote, Meh for the Watch for now (but the Hermes bracelet is so intriguing!).

    I was considering the Surface Pro to wrangle the eBIR forms on Windows, but I guess I'll convert my aging MBA as a dedicated Windows machine and replace it with the iPad Pro for both productivity and leisure.

    YES!!! FINALLY!

    I've been waiting for the iPad Pro for years!
    My MBA can now retire.

    mmm.....although I still have the 256 gig surface pro 3, I 'd like to give the iPad Pro a spin. Can't wean myself from Windows for work, so Parallels for Windows 10..............................oh crap!, I just remembered that the iPad Pro is iOS, NOT OSX. LOL! Note to Apple: please make an iPad Pro that runs OSX. That would be a true enterprise-level/true laptop replacement. Or better yet, a MacBook Air Pad (detachable keyboard, OSX, touch screen).

    Hmmm maybe a good replacement for a macbook air. But the ipad pro + keyboard + pencil is said to cost more than a macbook

    Then that unboxtherapy guy will do a bend test on this bad boy. Seriously you spend a huge chunk-a-change just to prove that it bends??

    I sense Titas parting was with their Coloring books for the iPad Pro and pencil combo. I like how Apple doesn't stop innovating on their touch technology.

    ... anytime now my wife's gonna come up to me and say: "ano, bibili ka ng iPad Pro 'no?? Kunyari ka pa sasabihin mo sa umpisa ayaw mo nun... ganyan din sinabi mo nung lumabas ang Apple Watch, tapos bumili ka din naman!!" :D

    While watching the proceedings on the iPad Pro, I kept thinking, Charlie is selling the Macbook Air 13" for P45,000 at two years, zero-interest. :p

    12.9" ... Ang sarap mag-Hearthstone dito. :)

    Kidding aside, this iPad Pro messed up my iPad upgrade plans.

    I'm currently on an iPad 2 that's pretty much gasping for air and won't be covered by iOS 9. An iPad Air 2 or its next version was the original upgrade target. But then, this baby comes along and now I'm undecided.

    Yes, it's bigger and probably bulkier than an iPad Air 2 but the things you can do with it.... Wow.

    Thankfully, this doesn't come with 3D Touch (yet). Otherwise, that would have been it.

    Seriously considering this as my next iPad. But I guess I have to hold one first before I decide.
