    After several months of use, any regrets with this purchase?

    This is got to be one of the most asked questions. But no I don't regret it one bit. The iPad Pro is a completely different experience from my old iPad air 2

    Not. One. Bit.

    I think iOS 10 will further solidify this too

    It did make a dent in the bank account, but I love it. Typing this on a bus on the way to work. Going to replace the MBA I was using at work with this baby. My Air2 is sitting unused on my bedside table. Just realized as I was typing this that the iPP is doing the job of both MBA and Air2 -- so worth it!

    Took mine back, didn't like the apple keyboard as well. It was really hard to work with it when in my lap. I did like the bigger ipad but will wait till a few more keyboards come out.

    No regrets. It goes with me where I'd normally haul my rMBP. Unlike many, I really love the Smart Keyboard. Like all, I love the Pencil (though I had to put a rubber sleeve on it - too dang slippery!) I still use the rMBP for iMovie and developing presentations, but for most everything else the iPP is top shelf!

    Absolutely love mine and have never once thought about returning it. Hell, I'd marry the damn thing if I could. :)

    No regrets, it can not (for my use) replace my rMBP, but I knew that when I purchased it. Was an addition to my apple device family. Only regret may be having purchased it if in the very near future an iPad air 3 came out with Pencil support. That would be the perfect device for my uses. I use both my Air2 and Pro daily in addition to my rMBP.

    Nope, replaced both iPad and rMB. Obviously not an option for everyone depending on usage.

    Not a bit. I think it's the best iPad I've owned.

    No regrets, loving it, so much better than my Air 2.

    I use mine daily for work and for personal stuff and think it is the best portable computing device overall I have owned. It has made mundane computing tasks 'fun' again. While it is certainly not perfect, I am happy with my investment and optimistic about what future iOS and app updates will bring.

    Regret not buying sooner, regret not ordering the Pencil at launch hour.

    I've got 4 iPads, including the Mini 4, never had any regrets buying any of them. Then I bought the iPad Pro, for the first day I was a little excited, by the second day I started to have regrets, it was just too big, it felt ridiculous in my hand, also the screen is not that good compared to the Mini 4.
    When you hold it in one hand it is really heavy and you feel like a fool. If you're an artist or extra keen drawer go ahead and buy it. If you're not, don't.

    Sorry only have 3 iPads, forgot I returned the IPP.

    Regrets? Not in the slightest.
    The quick drain on the battery is annoying, but it's an annoyance I get around.

    Holy cow YES! My girlfriend wanted to buy the Pencil for me - I was so tempted to put it in my cart when I ordered, but thought "She really wanted to get it for me so I'll just pick it up at the store when we pick it up."
    I ended up paying for it myself anyway because it was such a scramble (and involved more than a bit of luck!).

    So it didn't work for you. I agree the iPP isn't for everyone. But why tell other people what to do? Yes, it is big, but many people are finding the size workable.

    You're right, I shouldn't have said not to buy it, I should have said think about it very very hard, as this is definitely not for everyone.

    I bought the iPP at the end of December, and I'm enjoying it way more than I could have imagined. I was lucky enough to score a pencil a few days before the iPad arrived, and I use it constantly--not just for sketching and note taking, but for general browsing and scrolling as well. I don't have a case I love yet, nor a screen protector--my matte Skinomi is hard on the eyes--but that's really my only beef. I'd love a lightweight case with better bumper protection that's the cover buddy that holds the pencil. But otherwise, no, no regrets. Love this thing.

    The Air 2 IS good, my wife has it now. The Pro is better, for me, larger screen, pen input and faster.
