    Don't tell your wife that or she will want one too, then your wallet will take another hit :)

    Now just drop

    $99 on Apple Pencil
    $170 on Smart Keyboard and
    $99 on 2 years of AppleCare

    We all did it. You're only half Pro until you get the accessories.

    And then there's me on my iPad mini 4
    I have the silicone case and Smart Cover, almost got a keyboard case, but I realized I didn't need it.
    No AppleCare either.
    And of course, no support for Apple Pencil :(

    I don't think I need the pencil. But a cover sounds like a bugger bear.

    What I did was return the Smart Keyboard since it's not backlit.

    Get the Logitech Create Keyboard case for the 9.7 Pro it's $60 dollars less than the Apple Smart Keyboard designed with Apple and uses the Smart Connector. And has better keys and Protects the iPad Fully so no need for a $50 silicon back.

    Sorry the video it's in German but it's so new no one has done such. Good video showing it off.

    Pencil is my favorite piece of kit. Otherwise I would have a mini4 :)

    I have both the ASK and the Logi Create keyboard for my 12.9 Pro. I use the ASK much more. Its adaptability suits my needs. In addition, the Logi Create doesn't lean back as far as the ASK. There is a big enough difference for my lap usage. Lastly, when all I want to do is stream videos, tha ASK can fold up behind the Pro, thus having a smaller footprint.

    Not everyone will want the pencil. I bought mine from the hype and only used it a couple of times.

    Think before you jump on all the accessories!

    And you get to chose if you want a back case or not with the ASK
    Oh, and it doesn't scratch your screen either, as I remember reading somewhere on MR about the Create...

    Looked at the refurbished prices and I think they're over-priced. $919 when you can get a brand new one on EBay for $800? Even if you didn't trust the eBay ones you can add Apple Care + and still be under the cost of a refurbished unit.

    I had the same problem with a MBA a couple of years ago.. Wife tried using it and before I knew it the MBA had moved into "cold dead hands" for her. I finally just bought a new rMBP for myself.
