Hi all, This is my 3rd iPad. I purchased my first iPad before I got an iPhone. I think it was a 2nd generation. Then I got myself an iPad Air and now I have an iPad Pro 9.7. After the iPad Air I thought that I will never get an iPad again as it is impossible to do any serious work with it and I ended up using it for movies and internet browsing. I do a lot of photography and photo editing and I love the new Retina MBP 15" - fantastic tool for photo editing, great screen. Coming back to an iPad Pro. I thought that the new Pencil will make a big difference dor notes taking, highlighting books that I am reading and some photo work. But let me tell you think, I literally see almost no real difference between the IPP and the Air. Yes, it is faster, better speakers, but it changes nothing. I tried taking notes, but I hate the experience. I truly prefer a piece of paper and a pencil or pen. You have a physical contact with a real paper, you engage more senses when you write, there is no lag, there is a sound when you write. Personally, I only use this new iPad for watching movies on-line and sometimes internet browsing. The size of the iPhone makes me want to use iPhone for web browsing, all the serious work I do on MacBook and I read physical books as well as take notes physically. This is just my experience and my take on it, but I think Apple really turned so many people into religious followers reasy to spend last money on their products.
