Well I've had some time with my new iPad and I can safely say that it’s easily the best iPad I’ve owned. I suppose that accolade isn’t hard to achieve; my last iPad was an Air 2. Apart from some lagging when swiping through web pages, eveything seemed to work as it should (apart from the screen that was smashed by my son). I decided to get the 256gb 12.9” with the folio keyboard and pencil 2. I’m an engineering professional who mostly uses a docked windows laptop for work. At home, I use my 5k iMac for my engineering degree studying and pretty much everything else. The Air 2 was always used for browsing the web, reading news and social media - the plan for the Pro is to enable me to take my studying everywhere I go. Obviously, the pro is pretty good at media consumption - weirdly, I don’t think it’s as good as a smaller iPad. Well, not in my use case anyway. I’m sure it’ll be better for watching videos, but I rarely need to. I’m referring more to reading news etc - It doesn’t feel natural on a screen so large. Over the last couple of days I have been writing up and experiment on word. It has been okay, but nowhere near as slick as it could [should] be. The positives: - Folio keyboard is great for typing - probably better than my magic keyboard. I’m using it to write this post, and it’s a joy. - The pencil is very impressive. I’ve been able to switch from typing, to writing equations directly into the document seamlessly. The negatives: - Word for the iPad is awful. I’ve read a bit about word not having full functionality, but this is the first time I’ve tried it myself. It’s cumbersome to use without a mouse, but worse than that, It’s a half baked version. No proper style functionality is a headliner amongst a whole plethora of missing features. This for me is a potential killer - proper formatting is essential. - With the folio keyboard attached the iPad is just too cumbersome as a take it anywhere consumption device. My conclusion is that it’s a very good tablet, but not quite a PC - not for me anyway. If I had mouse support and a proper version of word, I’d be singing its praises from the rooftops - unfortunately, it’s not quite there yet.
