I bought a second generation iPad Pro 12,9 this week, with cellular and 256 GB. I bought it new from someone who was selling it only, it's still packaged and everything, was never taken out of the box, never activated obviously. The price for it here in Europe is around 1230 Euros, I got it for 830 with the shipping. Pretty good deal I'd say… I also bought it because my first gen Air 1 (also cellular and 128 GB) is starting to become slow. I still have iOS 8 on it which keeps it rather fast for simple things, but there's plenty of apps that don't work anymore. But now I feel like I shouldn't keep that Pro. We're basically just falling into that consumer trap, but for what? Is consuming really the goal of life? I'd rather read about history, politics, science and become smarter and wiser, recognise tendencies in our society and help us become something greater, and then I look at that iPad Pro and tell myself: Basically it's the exact same thing I have already, except Game A will run better or App B will have additional features, but is that really that important? I still need my iPad for various things … scientific works, writing lots of stuff, reading the newspaper. I do play games and watch things online, but I feel like these things are the lesser important things in life, and this huge iPad Pro will just drag me even more into these not so important things. I don't want to just consume. I feel like our world is in turmoil and like we're facing new radical changes and revolutions in the not so far future, I wonder if I shouldn't be doing more important things. I just see myself having lots of screens around me and these screens becoming bigger and bigger and I wonder if I didn't lose the battle against becoming one of those hamster wheels – not that I was against that, someone needs to run the economy, but I guess I just don't want to be the hamster. On the other hand, I'd love to draw, and the iPad 12,9 is perfect for that. I want to try myself at architecture – been a huge fan of classical architecture for a while and would love to draw some classical things on it. Maybe one day I can build some buildings like that - but the reality is, will the iPad really help me with that? I also use my Air 1 in public transport sometimes. You must imagine, public transport in Europe is not like in America, it has a different status. And many people in fact read on their iPads in the transports. I only do when I have exams and when I still prepare and re-read all my notes while going to the university, otherwise I usually look at the people and observe them. And in fact, almost all people are just doing something on their smartphones. The ones with tablets are still minorities, but they start to become more. The iPad Pro is huge, I can not really read things on it in the public transports, so it will most likely just stay at home. But honest, if it wasn't awkward, I'd probably do it, I'd most likely use it in public transports. But it's embarrassing. It's what I said before, us humans sitting all next to each other, watching our screens, and these screens becoming bigger and bigger over time. I don't want to be the one with the biggest screen in the public transports, what'd going to be next? Guys coming with plasma TVs in the subway? It's weird, and I feel weird. I'm not sure if I shouldn't sell it again. I could make a win out of it, since I bought it for so much less than it cost new. So my idea was to get the 10,5 Pro. I'd sell my Air, and with my profit from selling the 12,9 Pro, I would save quite some money. Then however I compared flagship iPad models with "lesser" models, and compared their price evolution, and it seems as if the top model always holds a better value than the others (in many things we can actually observe the opposite, i.e. very expensive cars or other luxury items, that drastically lose their worth). I calculated that the iPad Pro 12,9 would most likely lose a very percent less of its value than the 10,5. And the difference between what I have spent for the 12,9 and the 10,5 would be huge, except if I found a similar deal with a 10,5 Pro, but that isn't likely. Which basically means the money I didn't spend on the Pro 12,9 I'll be spending more on the 10,5 – see what I mean? And that's where I get back to the question, do I really want a smaller device for basically almost the same price, plus the slightly bigger value loss? It's a hard decision, and very psychological … no, I'm not crazy, I just type very fast and my brain goes through many thoughts very quickly in real time, even overtaking my writing speed. But seriously, should I sell this iPad Pro 12,9? Is this something for virgins and should I rather be flirting with smart, attractive women out there?
