    So I took the plunge and went for the iPad Pro 9.7 (silver, WIFI, 128gb). Needless to say, it's everything and more. Very happy customer.

    My main reservation pre-purchase was the possibility of wobble on a flat surface using the Pencil or typing. I don't use a case while at home.

    There is zero wobble. I was curious how Apple did this. On very close inspection, it looks like the long sides of the iPad case are almost imperceptibly curved. If you look down the champhered edge of the short sides with one eye closed, it's straight as a die. But the long sides look ever so slightly curved. I'd try to get a photo, but I'm not convinced it'll show.

    Am I imagining this, or can anyone else see it?

    It's a hidden joke from Apple as a response to all the YouTube videos.

    Their new products are pre-bent.

    It's just physics. Surface area verses minimal thickness increase. Think of it this way..if you put a penny under one corner of your house, that isn't going to make your house wobble.

    I'm sure Apple could have sold wobbling as a feature if they wanted to. Then samsung's next phone and tablet would both wobble, but the wobble wouldn't be as nice as the wobble on the iPad
