    Thanks for answering my query. Where and how much did you subscribe for Office 365? I am planning to purchase a Lightning HDMI adapter and connect it to an LED monitor. Is it true that it will only mirror the screen on the ipad and not as an extension like normal PC?

    How were you able to get the legal cases into the iPad? Did you have to scan or take a picture of it before? e-SCRA? Or is there an online law library now?

    When I use my iPad for presentations, I can only mirror my display on to the projector. I think I saw an app to extend the display but didn’t see the need for it.

    I subscribed directly with Microsoft. I am not sure if sharing links is allowed here I availed of the Office 365 Personal package, which costs P2,599.

    I use "Duet" whenever I want to make my iPad an extension screen of my MacBook Pro.

    I have a subscription with My Legal Whiz. The service allows me to download cases in .pdf. I save everything in my Dropbox account, arranged into neat folders per subject. To annotate on the cases, I use Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    Surprised to know that the iPad Pro 10.5 256GB Wi-Fi price of BTB is slightly higher compared to the one posted on Apple PH website. The Php45,990 was--as they have said--the cash price already. The SRP was really Php50,790. Is this correct?

    I think 45,990 is the srp of btb. Before it was 43,990. nag increase ng price because of peso exchange rate.

    Yup, that's what makes it weird. They just adjusted the price of iPad Pro 10.5 according to demand? Normally what is written on the site is considered as SRP. The discount should be based on that.

    ^i think its also based on the foreign exchange, i remember iphone prices also increased last year as the peso continues to tumble... btb also mentioned something similar when the prices of macbook pros went up from 64,999 to 69,990 last year

    Even sa ibang seller they increased their prices. Buti na lang I got one agad sa isang supplier ng office namin for a much lower price. I think maski na iyun mga ibang accessories ay tumaas rin.

    I really think its the foreign exchange, hence the blanket increase, apple US has not increased prices... even buying from amazon has a rate of 54+ to the dollar already

    Wanted to share with you guys: I’ve been on the lookout for a case for my iPad Pro that’s compatible to the Smart Keyboard and has a holder for the Pencil. I finally found the Tech21 Impact Clear case. (Bought it from their website for $69.95)

    Initial impressions:
    - Good protection without adding a lot of bulk to the iPad.
    - Pencil holder is very handy. The holder can be removed if you don’t want to bring your Pencil around.
    - Button feedback not as good as want it to be. Found myself pressing the power button a couple of times before it turned off.
    - Cutouts for the speakers, jacks, and dock are exact. But plugging the Pencil to the dock is TOO exact. I think it can go in more but the case blocks the Pencil na. It still charges though, no issues.

    Here are some photos of the case:
