8gb ram, full OS, battery free Wacom EMR pen, 12" AMOLED screen , included fast charger, included pen and type cover, same battery life as the ipad pro 12.9. This thing hits all the major marks i need as a visual artist. why oh why cant Apple make something like this? not a big enough market? i just dont get it. i love apple products, but living with the limits of the software and hardware just places the device in the toy department for me. fun and easy to use but worthless when i need to do some work. i cant rely on a ipad pro as a back up device to my art business. Say if my Wacom mobile studio pro breaks or gets lost. im out of work. i need two tablets that can get work done that are portable and fast enough to tackle big projects. The ipad pro wont cut it. its just frustration city for more advanced workflows. some half baked hack like Astropad attached to a mac book pro- does not cut it. i dont want to look like a douche from 10 years ago. I need hardware that can do the work. ill sure miss the smoothness and performance of procreate, but who cares. photoshop does everything and more, and it works well enough on these wintabs. I hope apple has something up their sleeve, but after almost 2 years with the ipad pro and the half a$$ apple pencil i am almost looking forward to jumping ship. maybe the grass is always greener, except wait, i already have another windows tablet. it works great. Wacom EMR does pen tech so much better. fingers crossed that apple will actually innovate and give content creators something juicy in the next update. i really want to stay in the apple ecosystem- since im already invested, and it does do ALLOT of things right. ok sorry for the rant im just annoyed with apple and feeling some serious techno-lust. I spent all my art school years on Apple and now i feel abandoned. Between the ipad pro and the nMac Pro im starting to loose faith in apple for content creation. Fortunately windows 10 actually works really well and has a good tablet mode that allows full functionality of the entire OS, with just your hands. So there are options that work for me..... Apple, you woke yet?
