After using the iPad Pro 12.9 for almost a month, I just couldn't find any way to justify its purchase. I just prefer macOS in just about every regard. Maybe I am just too old fashioned and used to doing things the way desktop OSes work. I am not really sure to be honest.. The iPad has amazing hardware, it really does. As a tablet is amazing, but it just doesn't seem to fit into my lifestyle. For almost all tasks I prefer my MacBook Pro and every time I use the iPad I feel that I am missing something. Common tasks are more difficult to achieve using an iPad, but I think if wanted to summarise what I really miss I would say the following: Office apps are not as powerful as their desktop counterparts Email apps are not as powerful as on the desktop Mobile Safari not as powerful as on the desktop No direct access to a file system from all apps (every app has its own separated space, lives in total isolation) No precision based interface support. I would love to have a mouse on my iPad.. For me the iPad is still a toy, an expensive one. I know that there are people that are doing actual work with an iPad and I understand that it can work. The iPad has become much more powerful than before, but it is still being held by its OS. I too could do real work on an iPad but I choose not too, because it is just too cumbersome to use and I would need to find ways to go past the iPad limitations all the time. Technology should be there to help people, and not to make them feel limited. This is how the iPad makes me feel. As an entertainment device it is absolutely amazing, but I can use my Macs for that too and I wouldn't miss anything. I will send it back and use the money to partly finance my new iMac which I just ordered. For me, the combination iMac as a desktop computer and MacBook Pro 13" as my mobile device, together with my iPhone is more than sufficient. I don't believe that there is space for a device that sits somewhere in the middle and does nothing better than my Macs. I know that there are a lot of people that disagree, and I respect that, but unless many things change on the OS and apps level, I do not see myself going back to an iPad for a long long time. With the setup I described I will be getting the maximum usage possible from each device. Each device has its purpose and doesn't leave me wonder why I have it. When the iPad gets a much more powerful OS and better apps than the current ones, or when I will be so rich that I can justify having a desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet and a smartphone, I will buy an iPad again. In the meantime I will enjoy macOS for as long as possible.
