    After using the iPad Pro for a few days, I realized that it's kind of heavy and if you are going to use it for an extended period of time, holding it like a regular tablet is not ideal as your arms will get tired. So I started looking for some sort of tablet stand.

    Initially I was looking for something to be used on my desk or on a flat surface, but I ended up buying this:

    I'm one of those insane people that is attempting to replace my MacBook Pro with an iPad Pro, and I've found this stand to be a game changer. It's a hundred times more comfortable to sit on my sofa with the iPad Pro suspended in front of me at the perfect angle without having to hold it or put it on my lap, and is also way more comfortable than sitting at my desk and leaning forward to type on my MacBook Pro.

    And for those situations where you need to work at your desk with a keyboard, this works fine for that purpose too:

    And this contraption also folds up pretty well to make it portable and something you can travel with:

    Just thought I would mention that I have no affiliation with this company, nor am I professional reviewer who was given this product for free to review. I just found it after spending hours online looking for a stand for my iPad Pro, and I purchased it from Amazon.

    My only complaint, which is a small one, is that there is no padding on the surfaces where the iPad is held. If you have some sort of case on your iPad, then this is a non-issue. I don't, so I may put some felt on those surfaces. So far I have not and my iPad has not been scratched at all, but thought I would mention this. The surfaces that touch the iPad are a hard plastic.

    Also, the iPad Pro is too tall to fit in Portrait mode on this stand. I did manage to put it in portrait mode once, but the elastic on the holder felt like it was stretching a bit too far making the fit too tight and I was concerned that maybe it was putting too much stress on the iPad Pro. I don't see this as much of an issue though as I always use the iPad Pro in landscape mode anyway for the great split screen mode.

    Just wow, that stand just does not look too attractive. I don't really hold my iPad pro, it's more of a lap device or a device that's rests on a table. For those who do hold it, I don't think it was met to be held for long periods. The air or the mini is more of a device you can hold. I just cannot see myself buying some robotic looking spider contraption to hold my iPad pro.
