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.

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