    iPad Pro 10.5", 256GB Space Grey, wifi + cellular with Black Apple Leather Sleeve and Apple Smart Keyboard. The perfect set up?

    A more appropriate question might have been...

    "What is your perfect iPad Pro setup?"

    Forget the Smart keyboard and just use an Apple BT Magic keyboard.....more versatile, easier to move around to just the right position on a table or wherever.

    Why do I need a keyboard for a consumption device?

    That assumes it's just a consumption device, which is not the case for many.

    I use the BT keyboard when I have a lot to type and when I'm seated at a table with the iPad on a stand. Other times, if I just want to write a quick response to an email, then I just use the device's own built-in keyboard.

    Not sure if serious, but the iPad Pro is not only used as more than a consumption device by most, it was specifically built to be more than a consumption device.

    I guess if you use Smart Keyboard it will ruin your leather sleeve in the future.

    I just can't believe how expensive those Apple Smart Keyboards are. Totally overpriced.

    My perfect setup is

    12.9 with Smart Keyboard and Smart Cover and pencil

    Think having both Keyboard and Smart Cover is a must

    Yes - I switched from the 1st gen 12.9 to the 10.5 with Smart Keyboard and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
    Typing on it now on the kitchen table, it's so sexy and portable, and it does one thing that I always loved about the iPad and had kinda lost with the 12.9":
    It doesnt feel like working with a computer - it's more like using a sketchbook or something. Hard to describe why so, but it's really liberating.

    Still I'm secretly dreaming of ALSO having the 12.9" but cant really justify it. I'm gonna wait till iOS 11 drops and maybe will get a 12.9 on eBay at the time.

    It's become more than just a consumption device. But I wonder why a keyboard when you can dictate to Siri so easily.

    I don't think its a perfect set up, as don't need or want cellular and I don't like the sleeve.

    The configuration you put forth is from your personal perspective, my needs, and preferences are quite different then yours. It may be perfect for you, which is great but not for me

    For me, the perfect setup is 64GB wifi space gray, iPad Pro. No keyboard, and a JeTech case

    Space Grey

    Oh and a felt envelope case repurposed from my rMBP for transportation in backpack.

    magic keyboard > smart keyboard

    allows for full cover, front & back for $15

    but i use mine mainly for hand written notes + sketching + painting
