    Have not had the time to really try it yet as it is still downloading apps but it's REALLY big, feels almost comically large when you hold it.

    I assumed it would be like having two ipad mini's stuck together but it is actually considerably bigger than that

    Not complaining mind you just saying it's really big!

    It's big and beautiful!

    It feels so futuristic.

    The speakers are really really impressive btw

    thats the first review i've heard of them outside of Apple.

    can you get them to rattle/vibrate is the question?

    Yes it's big but not as heavy in the hands as I expected. I'm going to try and do away with the notebook I carry around for work (which weighs more than the IPP). Going to be difficult right now without the Pencil.

    Ginormous! No problem with watching videos or browsing as I heve it up on a stand and will not have to hold it. But gaming on this thing? Might be a little tough, but we'll see.

    I can feel a slight vibration while holding it. I have it lying flat on my desk and I feel no vibration while typing.

    The speakers can get insanely loud too. Sounds so good

    I'm wanting to whip this thing out in public. Should be amusing :D

    That will be different than seeing all those Macbooks in libraries and bookstores. I'll probably make my rounds later today and show it off. :)

    It's odd, just a few years ago it's would seem so geekish. Now it's just another crazy thing.

    Of course it's big, it's designed to give artists an adequate area to draw. Make no mistake about it, this device was designed for artists, it wasn't designed for the average Joe who wants to watch Netflix a bit larger than on a normal sized iPad.

    How is the screen uniformity, any backlight bleed?

    I would expect that. These things sort of do that.

    I've actually found no faults so far. I'm shocked considering my luck with apple displays. It looks wonderful

    Wow negative Nancy, there's a ton of Picts and videos on the web. Look em up.

    Using mine right now and it's AMAZING!

    Same here, no faults so far but it is early.

    It was not on display at my Best Buy to check out. Not sure about Apple stores but with a return policy and possible limited availabilty I was not looking to try it beforehand in store anyway.

    Mine's ready for pickup!! Stuck at work, waiting for my first opportunity to bail. Looks like the Smart Keyboard and Pencil aren't available yet.

    How good is safari browser? I know the iPad air 2 is close to desktop speed but not that close. How is the iPad pro? I would definitely be interested if it's fast!

    Only shame is I'd like to have two tabs side by side, but Safari doesn't support that.

    Those that have it, do you think it is basically a mainly landscape device? And does the smart keyboard let you use it just as a stand without the keyboard part sticking out at the front?

    Has anyone tried it out with duet display? Would love to use it as a second monitor when on the road.

    On my Air 2 I use Chrome and Safari side by side as a work around, works great.

    uniformity is good, not book spine or dark/piss spots along the edges which have been my biggest gripe with my ios devices. a quick look a look at the display models in Grand Central NYC store showed the same (unlike ipad air 2s, iphones etc where these blemishes were easy to spot).

    Unfortunately i found a cluster of stuck pixels on my screen so will have to exchange.
