    I am looking for a device to work while on the train. Has any of you tried the new keyboard while having the iPad PRO on the laps? From the look, the stand does not seem to be stable. The logitech one may be more stable but there is no info about it yet.

    I would assume the worst, if it comes to moving vehicles.

    Considering that nobody has one yet, the simple answer to your question is no.

    I don't see it as anything different than other tablets at that size. Try typing with a Surface Pro on one's lap. Doable at best but ......

    Agreed. That said, I would imagine that it won't be very good on a moving train.

    If it will be like Surface Pro, then it may not be stable. Need more info about the keyboard from Logitech.

    I had the Surface Pro 3 and it was fine for lap use. Actually, the kickstand is very versatile for use in a lot of positions than even laptop. For example, I can it use on a sofa chair with legs fully extended straight to the floor without it tipping over when hands aren't on it like what would happen with a laptop. Can close the kickstand when in fetal position with it resting on my legs. Lying on my back with it on my chest I can detach the keyboard cover so it's not sticking in my throat. iPad Prosumer can benefit from a kickstand because these folio cases don't even stay upright all the time on a table.

    My Surface Pro 3 sucks when using on my lap. Do not think the iPad Pro will be much better.

    Although they are not available yet for us commoners, they have been available for reviewers. It is to these that the OP may have targeted his question.

    I was going to ask a similar question regarding being in couch potato mode. Right now my rMB 12" laptop perches pretty well on one or two legs. I'm wondering how the iPad Pro with the Apple keyboard will work? How good are those attaching magnets?

    Good for you. The iPad released in 2010, when many people were saying the same thing. It's success in the following years suggests your assertion it's a fad is utterly false.

    Used to be in the same boat but then I got an iPad Air 2. I rarely use my iPhone when I'm at home now. If I'm reading an article/browsing the web, it's much easier to do it on an iPad. My MacBook is nice for those things but reading articles is better in portrait orientation. Also, you lose a lot of intimacy with a laptop compared to a tablet...You directly interact with content, there is no keyboard in the way, you don't have to open & close it. All those are minor things but they add up.

    Don't get me wrong, if I want real work done (spreadsheets/Logic Pro), I'll pick my MacBook. But for the other 80% of the time, I'd rather use my iPad.
