So today is the day the iPhone SE and the iPad Pro 9.7 are released. I had been thinking about getting a new iPad to replace the outdated Air 2..but I did something unusual : I bought the iPad Pro 12.9 instead.
Wow. I don’t know why I didn’t pick it up before. This is what I wanted. It’s a tablet that can be a laptop – and it backs it up with battery life. The Surface Pro 3 was nice, if you got over the battery life – and the screen was ok, but I wanted something bigger.
The iPad Pro 12.9 is just big enough to make my old eyes work, and the keyboard (Logitech smart connector) does everything – typing feels good. And I’ve been using this for 3 1/2 hours with music and light video on while multitasking and the battery life is still at 82%.
And it has cellular service which is great for us legacy iPad 1 $30 / month unlimited users!
I really like this thing. Which is probably why no one raved about it before. I like it more than the MacBook Air also.
So anyone need /want to buy an iPad Air or Surface Pro 3?
