iPad Pro

Dear Shawn,

I bought the iPad Pro online on Wed. night. I got it on Fri., 13 Nov. I bought the 128GB Wi-Fi only in Space Gray. I didn’t buy the keyboard case or pencil.

Do you Canadians have to add tax to the advertised price? If you don’t, you’re lightweights when it comes to getting overcharged on Apple products. Here are the Canadian and Australian prices converted to US dollars:

Canadian:
32GB with Wi-Fi: 784 USD
128GB with Wi-Fi: 937 USD
128GB with Wi-Fi + Cellular: 1072 USD

Australian:
32GB with Wi-Fi: 890 USD
128GB with Wi-Fi: 1068 USD
128GB with Wi-Fi + Cellular: 1210 USD

This thing is huge. You’re from a metric country, so you’ll know the size of an A4 piece of paper. This is a bit over a centimetre bigger on both sides. I had to buy a new bag to fit it. It makes the iPad Air 2 look like a toy. I distinctly remember being a little disappointed with the size of the original iPad, expecting it to be bigger. This is much bigger than my original expectation. Unfortunately, most apps don’t take advantage of the bigger screen, so they’re zoomed. If they use a keyboard, it’s the old keyboard and because it’s zoomed, it takes up more screen real estate than the new keyboard. There was a racing game I tried that uses two on-screen buttons to steer. Because it was zoomed, I kept missing one of the buttons because it was in a different position relative to the corner of the screen. I hope developers get onto this.

The impression is of a truly pro computer. I’ve only ever owned one pro Mac, and that was the Power Mac G5. The sensation of using it was that is was far more responsive than any of the consumer Macs I had had before. This gave me the same feeling. I bought it mainly because I wanted the bigger screen, so I feel that I may not push the envelope on it.
