    Looks like the majority of us are thinking similarly.

    None for me, as I really want a screen protector and if I do that, the pencil probably won't work. The keyboard is bleghh, I type just fine on screen, That's why it's there. If Apple were to say the pencil can still work great with a glass shield, then I'd get one.... If only it was just 40-50 bucks, that would be Oisome! :)
    *first world problems to the max. Ha ha

    The Apple Pencil i think will be very helpful especially for drawing/sketching, i also want a case for it but Apple haven't announced those yet. I'm thinking that with the Pencil and a case it will top £1,000!

    Apple had to make a keyboard case for this to match people's expectations. Other than avoiding Bluetooth, they haven't really done anything exceptional.

    Pencil does seem to be the real deal. The demos are very compelling. I think $99 is actually very good value for the capability that's been built into the Pencil. Not sure what £UK pricing is going to be yet. I'm guessing £80ish. If you compare it to the price of top end (but likely still inferior) stylus options from 3rd parties, it's very fairly priced.

    The name is even growing on me...

    Smart Cases are highlighted towards the bottom of the iPad Pro page on Apple's UK site, buddy ...

    I didn't see that, I'm glad they will be selling smart cases for the iPad Pro, I just wish they would tell us when in November it will be released and also give us UK customers the prices.

    I agree.

    My Smart Case has been brilliant on my iPad 4.

    With regards to pricing, just expect the worst and hope for the best!

    You pre-ordering, day one?

    If so, which model/colour are you going for?

    I'm going for Silver 128GB WIFI, with grey Smart Case.

    Really looking forward to it.

    My 4 is just so clunky, now. Especially on iOS 9 ...

    Yea I will be pre-ordering on day one, I'm going for the 128GB wifi in gold or space grey I haven't decided which yet. I'm also going with a smart case not sure which colours they will have yet.
    I'm looking forward to it as well especially with that big screen, the multitasking and the Apple Pencil I think they will all work great together, from very early hands on reviews people are saying that the Apple Pencil works great and is very responsive.

    I think Apple Pencil and Smart keyboard can maximize the new particular features of iPad Pro for satisfying the needs of different purposes, such as writing, drawing, and typing for office works. So, I would like to purchase both of them.

    I don't see anything on the smart case for the iPad Pro. I only see smart cover and silicone case. Can you please point me into the right direction?

    I'm not really a fan of the keyboard case. If you can't use it in your lap I don't want it. The pencil is pretty much essential as I see it. As far as cases go I usually go third party.

    Wooooooooooo ... I think you're right!

    SURELY even Apple couldn't be this sneaky?

    "The Silicone Case protects the back of your iPad Pro and is designed to pair seamlessly with the Smart Cover for complete front‑and‑back coverage."

    ... so you have to buy TWO cases?!

    Even for Apple, that is taking the p**s :-(

    Just the Pencil. Never saw the point of keyboard cases, personally. On-screen keyboard is fine IMO. Plus, it looks like the on screen keyboard displays anyway when you're using the keyboard case? Seems ridiculous. And way too costly.
    Pencil looks great though, of course I'll want to try it all out and compare with Surface Pro 4 before pulling the trigger.

    Pencil + standard Smart Cover + Silicone case

    Don't really need the keyboard cover.

    Will be the iPad pro 32GB and the pencil (will only use it for university and web surfing on the couch)
    Probably the smart cover to cover the back of the iPad when i will write on the screen and a Sleeve for the iPad and the pencil.
