I’ve had my iPad Pro 12.9” (256gb) since around Thanksgiving of 2016. My hand-me-down MacBook Pro was dying on me and instead of replacing it with another laptop, I decided to try the iPad Pro. I knew a regular iPad would feel too small as a laptop replacement & I was also afraid that the regular iPad wouldn’t be able to handle everything I wanted to throw at it (word processing, web browsing and photo editing). The iPad Pro has been a great replacement & I’m loving it more every day. It does everything I wanted it to do and I’ve reached the point where I don’t miss having a computer at all. I just recently bit the bullet and invested in the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. I wish I would have bought them sooner because right now there is not a single thing I wish my iPad could do that it doesn’t already do. 

- Size makes it a smoother transition for someone who wants a laptop replacement, but still small enough to throw in a bag or large purse
- Everything moves lightning fast & you can easily switch between apps without slowing anything down
- Battery lasts a long time
- Display is great for watching movies or looking at/editing pictures
- Touch screen is responsive enough that I was able to easily type emails and social media posts before I had the Smart Keyboard 

- Cost of accessories. I actually think the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil make this iPad the complete package and everyone should have them, but the price makes that hard

#giftcrush campaign ! I love my iPad pro. I wouldn't trade it for the world - I never go to work or anywhere without it. I bought the pencil for it and the keyboard case and it's like a mini laptop in my purse. I'm actually buying one for my mom for Christmas! Apple 12.9‑inch iPad Pro

Love my iPad Pro. Decided to give it a try and get rid of my old MacBook. Best decision. It does everything I need it to do and more! I have had zero issues since purchasing it and would highly recommend this to anyone!

The 12.9" iPad Pro is a beast of an iPad. Love the screen size, with add-on keyboard it can replace a notebook. The display is amazingly bright! While the iPAD pro has that familiar IOS interface. It is great for business users, travelers, students, and educators. Add the pen you have a full blown notebook that can translate your text into useful notes. Use Onedrive to store your documents and notes so that you can access them from any platform or device.

I LOVE my IPad Pro!! I am a fan of Apple products. I do have my IPhone 7s. So it's like having my fave phone super sized.

I am able to draw on there. Receive phone calls. Watch Netflix.

The resolution is the sharpest I've seen. Efficient. I can go from apps to app. No slow time. The camera and speakers are of good quality. And with Sprint Nextel I only paid $28/month as a loyal customer.

I've been waiting for my new iPad Pro in rose gold to be delivered after we preordered two. As soon as I had it up and running there hasn't been a day that passed that I'm not using it, whether it be gaming or designing using the nicely designed pencil stylus! It's so thin, lightweight, has a larger screen and easy to handle too! We love our iPad Pro's and would recommend it to everyone!

I just love my iPad Pro! I use it with the Apple Pencil and just love how it is like my own personal assistant! I use it daily for movies to fall asleep to at night, I record my journal using the Pencil, I use general apps like Social Media, I use it for the news, I use it for gaming. The speakers are excellent too, so the sound quality is just fabulous for my music. I have never once regretted my purchase and I know I never will! Thanks, Apple!

I started teaching Art last year and my iPad was great for for my students to see different types of art work and how to use it to create art. I love that is huge because it makes sharing with a class full of kids much easier. Plus if you get the pencil you have endless possibilities of what you can create. I wish the charge on it lasted a bit longer but besides that I really love it. I don't even pick up my laptop anymore.

What's the big deal well besides the size the sound and the speed everything an iPad Pro is not an average iPad taking you beyond needing a laptop. I use it for design and with s Bluetooth keyboard it is lightweight the battery long lasting and endless possibilities ... awesome and the sound is amazing
