    I personally am going to wait and see the next generation. I have a policy of not buying first generation product just because it's normally overpriced for the components it has compared to the following generations which they load up with better features and components that makes it justifiable to spend you hard earned money on.

    i personally dont go with that these days. yes, pro2 might be better, but then pro 3,4,5,6 etc etc will be better again.

    this pro really really is an impressive bit of kit. it really is the best ipad on the market. and yes, it will be superceded, but so will that and so on.

    the Pro is a first in a new category, but is it strictly 1st gen? not really. not after it's fine and proven previous ipad pedigree to build from. and it is good.

    i think its a gamble well worth taking, no matter what sracer quotes me on saying im wrong again ;) (see? personal opinion. subjectively as right as any other opinion)

    the hardware is that good, lets hope the software follows suit. can you afford/want it that much is the question :)

    absolutely. so why wait for the best, because the best is only the best for a short limited time until it's old tech next week. this is a definite.

    my boss always used to hold off on buying office pc's because he claimed the best were 'coming out next month'. next month NEVER comes :)

    So buy it now. You could be hit by a bus next year and therefore never enjoy it.

    Well, I'd at least wait a few more days. Looks like there will be s lot of deals on open box units.

    I have a rule. If I like it, I buy it. I don't care what anyone thinks. Life is too damn short not to enjoy and have fun. :)

    If you want/need it now, and can afford it buy now. Else you will always be waiting for the next best thing.

    They need an iPad program like the iPhone program where you can get a new iPad every year and trade in the old.

    The problem is that the next gen features were suppose to be for 1st gen iPad pro.

    but maybe the next gen features of the 3 could have been in 2. whatever, the next gen is always better. you're just enforcing the same old same old. ;)

    as every one say, it's great. if you want then go buy :)

    In some way..yes. However, there is one generation version that would satisfy the person and be able to skip 2 generations.

    I would wait. I think sales will disappoint with this generation and Apple will make many improvements in the next gen. The Pro really does not do enough to justify its price. Its an iPad Plus in my opinion. Hopefully they will have Pencils available by the time the next gen arrives.

    Powerful CPU, screaming GPU, 4GB ram, USB 3.0, the hardware is already there. All that's needed are the future iOS updates and apps that take full advantage of the hardwares huge potential.

    So, if it's capable of doing what you need it to now, or you don't mind waiting for updates coming in the very near future, then get it now!

    The thing is, is it the hardware or the software holding you back from your purchase. If it's software, I can see that changing over time to better take advantage of what the Pro has to offer vs you believing the hardware is still lacking and won't be a two year device.
