Ipads are great devices, there is no argument here. However, they are not PCs, and can replace a PC only for the most basic tasks (e.g., reading and browsing) because of the crippled operating system they are paired with. So why does Apple emphasize how powerful the ipad pro is in comparison with a PC? As far as I'm concerned, it can have petaflops of computational power, but unless i could use python, octave and R with it, it would never replace even a 2009 macbook pro. I think Apple should forget this whole "pro" bovine droppings ad strategy, and focus on how great the ipad is as a consumer electronics device. And if they really want to focus on the pro segment, they should come up with a way to run mac os on ipad pro.
