    My kid was letting me use her iPad Pro model when I was in the hospital and I really like it .Most of the Time using it for watching movies and YouTube videos & playing card games and keeping track of books and other plus music etc
    So I'm wondering about buying one so is it worthring swapping over to a iPad from a iPhone

    Hmm, I assume you still need to make a phone call occasionally.
    Other than that, iPad screen estate is perfect for web browsing, video watching and game playing (certain games though).

    iPhones and iPads are like strawberries and cream. Nice by themselves, but great together.

    i never make phone calls so it's a no brainer for me. but if i did I'd obviously have both. 2 completely different uses.

    having used the 12.9 pro for too many months now I'd NEVER go smaller. Never. too spoilt now.

    Not long ago I had to stay at the hospital for almost a week and my iPad saved me mentally!

    iPad Pro 9.7 is the future I see so many people with bulky laptops and I'm like why?

    Because the bulky laptop likely costs $200-400? I reckon most folks don't have an unlimited tech budget and if one cannot afford both an iPad and PC/notebook, I can understand prioritizing the laptop for productivity. Excel for iOS is impressive but it's missing quite a number of features compared to the full desktop version.

    Dude, why did you borrow your kid's iPad when you already own one?
    I see all these posts from you about how you love your iPad and iPhone 6s.
    You wouldn't be trolling, would you?

    Nah...

    First off I'm not trolling and second off if you check the SoCalled dates on the iPad post there about three years old plus given the fact I got rid of my iPad first generation model when I got the 6 plus phone it now in my grandkids hands

    But the fact is I'm looking to go back to the iPad for the bigger screen set up instead the 6 plus size screen
    Plus given the fact I'm going to be living at the va for a few months I'm looking for a set up that I can use more inside the room when I'm in recovery mode

    I get a monthly paycheck from Beening semi retired because of some medical issues from my time in the military
    Most of the time I worked as contacts specialist personal on test programs for the military at diff places from Fallon field Nevada to Yuma Az areas and few places in between

    The job in the world is take something out and make sure it's work for people in the military

    I use an Ipad exclusively. When I make an occassional call I use my Google Voice number through Hangouts. I have both IPPs & the IPM4. The IPM4 is used the most frequently.

    That's great for you and I mean that. I'm a person who hates to get my product "germ".
    If it was an old iPad, sure I would bring.

    When in the hospital I worry more about me get a "germ" than my iPad. Germs and bacteria are everywhere, we could not live without them.

    I am not OCD about germs but know some that are and I am way more happy. Fear can cripple but then some people are not viable life forms so . . . . .

    No.

    Ok, I'll blather on if you insist :D The iPads are not a replacement for an iPhone, not if you want to continue to make calls or send messages to anyone who doesn't use iMessage.
    They are however an excellent companion device that offer much more in terms of use and flexibility, depending on your use scenario of course. That's what it boils down to, what you do and don't need and what you'd prefer.


    I couldn't be without both. My iPhone is my most used device on a daily basis ever. But my iPad and especially since getting the 12.9" Pro, lets me create, consume and entertain myself far more than the iPhone could ever hope to.

    I do not like hospitals either but without, I would have died many years ago with a busted apendix, not to mention several motorcycle accidents.

    iPad Air 2 would work nicely for you as well and they are only about $379 - $399 right now. Should be good for about three more years. I would only recommend the Pro if you really like the Apple Pen and drawing right on the screen. For that you'll have to shell out another $99 ( pen ) and start at $599 for the iPad Pro. So $399 Vs $698.

    I had an iPad Air 2 and picked up an iPad Pro w/ pen. I really like the pen for notes and sketching ideas, but not sure it was worth the extra price yet.

    Er... If you are in a hospital where other people's blood or feces can get on your personal belongings, then you need to switch hospitals ASAP, and call the Health Department down on that hospital. :eek:

    Honestly, between a hotel room and private hospital room, I'd trust the hospital room to be cleaner/more sterile.
