UnKnown-original, 18 Feb 2017"It's faster than most laptops" - Yeah, the ones manufactured before the 21st century.No, just check the Geekbench single core score andcompare it to laptops in the same price range.
can it use 3D modelling software like real pc? Full version of photoshop? multi-tasking and mini app like a real pc or even on android
At 650 euro it offers what exactly?
- No viruses, seriously in 2017? They still use that at their ads? It's not 2002, Apple.
- Office Word. Runs. Everywhere.
- 3G connection needs nothing but a goddamn stick, which is free itself. Unlike the data, which you'll be paying for either way. Yeah, they're not a substitute for Wifi.
- Split screen, touch screen and a task manager. A task manager with app ... windows - oh God..
This is actually insulting.
Ps. Don't bother with the commends on youtube. They're deactivated...
zodiacfml, 18 Feb 2017...except that iPad Pros can be as twice as expensive as a laptop. One has to use the stylus ... moreactually unlike the surface pen or the s-pen the apple pencil is just a gimmick..true its useful for graphic artists, otherwise its just an expensive finger
Someone Else, 18 Feb 2017No. Just No.
No iPads or Tablets can ever replace a PC or a Mac. Never! These ads are stupidReally why though? As an engineer I can see no fundamental difference apart from lack of legacy support, and really sometimes clean starts have to be made in the industry.
I much prefer mobile OSes as their Base is a lot more modern and given support they can actually easily surpass legacy OSes, all is matter of support from 3rd parties.
No. Just No.
No iPads or Tablets can ever replace a PC or a Mac. Never! These ads are stupid
I completely agree that a Chromebook is a much better (and wiser) purchase.
...except that iPad Pros can be as twice as expensive as a laptop. One has to use the stylus most of the time to make good use of the expensive device.
Again Apple thinks its own customer base doesn't know the line between consumption and production. This is like calling a car that doesn't accelerate a sports car.
"It's faster than most laptops" - Yeah, the ones manufactured before the 21st century.
Easy fix for all of those. Get a Chromebook. Super secure, great value (iPads are not), decently powerful, all ones from here on out will have both touchscreens AND Android Apps. And if you really need to use another company's product to support your own product, while trashing their other products, you shouldn't be on a PR team. (Chromebooks also have MS Word). And LTE connectivity? Why would you pay for a whole other device to have an LTE chip, just in case you'd need it? Almost everywhere has free Wi-Fi, and you have your phone of you need to check your Facebook THAT much.
As an owner of iPad Pro 12.9 all i can say, everything in those ads is bullcrap. iPad Pro is not PC, it's tablet, it's media consuption device, it's way slower than my PC or laptop i use for work.
mxrush76, 17 Feb 2017NO, never... nunca, an ipad although pro, never gonna be as productive as a good pc (or a Mac)Depends of what you want to do with it, because IOS is too limited is some ways but if you are going to check you email and edit documents is a good choice.
Don't make me laugh. No viruses? Well... that's not what history tells us. Faster than a PC? IOS is so empty and is barely faster than android devices. If a PC ran as empty os as that, it would crush everything. Comparing an empty mobile os to a PC one is just one of the dumbest things you could do.
