This iPad has far exceeded all of my expectations. I upgraded from an Air 2 thinking it would mostly be a waste of money, and I expected to return it. I was totally wrong. With iOS 11, this is the most fluid and fun-to-use machine I've ever used. It reminds me of the joy I had with the Palm Pre multitasking gestures back in the day. I thought the Air 2 was a pinnacle of processing power, but even on beta software, the Pro with iOS 11 is an entirely new beast. The pencil writes a little too smoothly for my taste, but other than that, I just came to say that the new Pros are amazing and you should buy one immediately if you've been thinking about it.
