    1. Would you use the iPad Pro like a Cintiq? 2. The 'PencilPad' would be the new Apple Pencil in conjunction with the new Apple Magic Trackpad 2, for usage as a desktop graphical tablet--like the Wacom Intuos (pending discovery when all iterations and ducks are aligned).

    The Apple Pencil could also work with keyboards and other pads/screens too (again pending iterations and aligning ducks). Like with the iPad Mini (mini 'Cintiq') and with laptop trackpads (instant 'Intuos') for user accuracy tasks and creatives. Dare I say Pencil with iPhone in the same sentence as well, but not what you think. Albeit, all more on the design side, à la Apple genome, per iPad Pro with recent Pixar and Disney.

    One more thing: Apple Pencil plus Apple TV... but also not what you think...

    That's just crazy.

    When I get mine (eventually) this is exactly how I will use it. I already use my Air 2 as a Cintiq for illustration and wire framing.

    There is no native support for video input. You can use a video streaming solution like Astropad, but it currently is fairly laggy.

    I'm hoping we'll see the equivalent of iMac target mode in a future revision, potentially allowing for Cintiq-like functionality. It would require a more modern IO port.

    No offense but I couldn't understand one sentence of your post.

    I use Astropad with my Air 2 and the only lag is due to the stylus tech.

    Did you try the Pencil on the Magic Trackpad 2, laptop trackpads and other?

    The Apple Pencil will ONLY work at present with the iPad Pro.
