Ipad Pro

Has anybody got one of these?
I know they have branded it a laptop killer, but how does it actually compare in real life? Just using the basics such as word, power point etc

Cheers.

For things like Word I don't see how a keyboard less device is going to 'kill' anything

I've got one and I've got the keyboard but you know what...I still work on a trusty old Lenovo laptop when it comes to word/powerpoint stuff.

That could be down to the free company software though.

Interesting, work have just delivered the iPad Pro 10.5" to me.
Can I get a keyboard to fit that.
What other accessories are worth having?

You can get a keyboard case, but I wouldn't bother. Get a decent Bluetooth wireless keyboard if you plan to type regularly. The standard apple one for their imacs works flawlessly.

I bought mine mainly for drawing etc. (hobby) and then just normal stuff. I really like it but the 'normal size is a more practical size in most situations - other than drawing really. So very happy.

Don't have any real experience these days with the office products. I just do those on PC and no need to do it on the move these days.

Edit - thinking about it - not sure how big it is - it's the bigger one. I should have made more of a point about the 'pen' action which really is far more like real drawing now in terms of how it responds and how it detects where the 'nib' is. It's how I always expected it might be rather than the disappointing thing I had seen before.

I am writing this on the new 10.5" iPad and it's the bollocks.

Fastest tablet you can buy (blisteringly so and very noticeable)

Expensive though but I think IOS11 will be a huge upgrade coming very soon.
