    Yes, I am bracing for the price.

    I have zero complaints save for one...

    I was really hoping for HDR support, maybe it is there but it wasn't on the spec sheet.

    Thin-bezel and USB-C make the old iPad Pros look like dinosaurs. Being able to connect to a monitor is very important as a true notebook replacement.

    It’s not OLED so no reason to be expensive

    But your really better buying this than the new air for $1199. And now the slightly smaller size on the 12.9 will make it a lot more portable

    The performance on this thing looks insane. Given the applications and new tech in it I can see it in the ballpark of the new air. Really torn on the 11 vs 12.9" now though.

    My guess is that the 11 inch starts at $799. It looks amazing though, what a beautiful design.

    Pro devices favor color accuracy and non-shifting tones when viewed at an angle. That rules out OLED.

    A premium TFT panel is as expensive as a cheap OLED.

    I hope your right but I'm thinking it's going to by either 899 or 949 for the 11" and then another 150-200$ for the 12.9"

    Won’t be many of them sold at that price not many people take a contract for IPad.

    $999 for 12.9 .


    That hurts :( even as a Christmas gift I feel like that’s moving into fat chance territory.

    Imo I think that from the devices announced today, the 11 inch ipad pro has the best price for the tech and power it has.

    1459 euros for 256 GB Wifi+Cellular model in my country. Yeah, I think I will stick with my 2nd gen 12.9" iPP for a few more years.

    The USB-C change makes for added complications, I was just starting to get used to enjoying being able to carry one charger for both iPhone and iPad Pro.

    Definitely getting a 12.9" Pro. Looks amazing. USB-C, new bezels and design, wireless charging for the pencil, A12X... And I'm much happier with the LCD than an OLED, I don't even want an OLED. The current Pro's screen is great with Truetone and 120hz.

    IMO, it IS terrible, but that's only MSRP. $625/$825 on sale is not terrible.

    I actually don’t have an issue with that I use half of my current 64gb so it isn’t a big deal, by the time I need more Apple will have upped the base storage. (Haven’t struggled since 7 went to 32gb).

    It's another Apple cash grab. 128 GB would be spot on for most users but they want you to pay the premium for the 256 GB model.
