We gave the iPad Pro a bit of a harsh review. Does installing iPadOS make it any better as a laptop replacement?

I agree, if you try and “replace” your computer with an iPad it will be an injustice to the iPad and a disappointing experience to you. iPad is unique to itself and shouldn’t be compared. It’s like comparing apples and oranges. They’re different. And Apple probably wants you to have both of them. (Considering they make both of them)

i am one that has just joined the "ipad pro as a desktop replacement" race, and i love it so far! Now i know different people have different use, but as a father of a 2 and 1 year old son and daughter, gone the days of serious gaming that requires a proper PC, i have been doing just Netflix, USvid, Browsing and yes, some mobile MMO for the past 3 years or so.. so i figure, my PC is an overkill for that and takes up the space. so i just recently gave my PC away and setup a ipad pro as my desktop with wireless mouse and keyboard from Satechi and the USB C hubs ( super important ) and man, i love it, my table looks so good :D

Haha "... harder to use" while showing people using laptops on a plane. Where getting a reasonable display angle for a laptop suuuucks (unless you're rich and can afford to fly business class).

IMO, an iPad could only be a laptop replacement if you already have a Windows desktop computer. That way, you can still use Windows-only functionalities and have a high performance machine for games, while having a portable device for simpler tasks while going outside or while laying in bed, for example.

They should give you an option to map 3d touch to the right button. I mean, that's what it's usually used as, right? Secondary input for a menu. (Or on hold-down left)

I agree, I don't think that the iPad is bad or that the OS is bad, what I do think is that the iPad is definitely a tablet not a computer. That is my problem with it, it's a tablet, not a computer.

This is exactly what i have decided to do at the minute, the iPad pro for me can do everything i need on a daily basis. There are times when i miss the Macbook. BUT on the whole i can use the iPad for everything.

if you download windows 10 then yes it is a laptop replacement because it is really powerful, equal to intel 10th gen 10nm, but better than intel 8th gen u processors. ANd for a cheaper price with dci p3 color gamut. WIth windows 10 downloaded it is killer of all windows devices except of rmicrosoft surface pro 7

I don't get it.I would love to have had this on vacation. This whole "what's a computer and what isn't?" is stupid. It's just a matter of using the form factor that fit's your life the best. Personally on my last vacation I carried a huge thinkpad, fire tablet, and kindle. This is much lighter than the thinkpad, would do 99% of what I want on vacation, and not break my back doing so. That being said the regular ipad is $300 and everything has bluetooth so why not just buy a cheap bluetooth keyboard/mouse on amazon and use that? Or do they nerf it? I know you can do that on any android tablet.

I don't even like apple or their iPhones and always thought of the iPad as a iPhone with a bigger screen, but I'll admit that with ipados they've done a lot and really stepped up the game and now I actually want an iPad lol

Soooo ironic...that Macintosh led the way with having the first mouse available for public use on their first computer..now we can't even use a mouse on theirs. LoLz

I almost feel like the iPad is more for younger generations + people who are growing up on iPhones. I think its opening the door to future uses of what a computer-thing could be.

It was a little unnecessary to act like touch accessibility is odd. The vibe didn’t make me feel good feelings, as a special education teacher. You could’ve done that section of this video more tastefully.

Wish you guys dived into how and why Apple integrated external storage, it’s done in a unique way that prohibits root access to external devices

Why are so many people trying to compare the iPad Pro to a laptop? There are dozens of computing devices out there. All have their pro’s and con’s. smart phones, chrome books, tablets, laptops, notebooks, skates, smart watches and desktops are all examples of computing devices. Which you choose is down to your budget and personal needs. My every day carry is an iPhone. My home device and sometimes carry around is an iPad Pro. At work I use a windows desktop! That doesn’t make my choice better or worse than yours, it makes it right for me. By definition, a laptop is a computing device designed for ease of use on your lap. I frequently use my iPad Pro on my lap as well as my desk. In my opinion that makes it a very versatile computing device. Stop trying to catigorise devices and just appreciate them for their virtues or, if your that way inclined, criticise them for any short comings.

I think something that some people need to remember about the iPad is that it isn't aimed at hardcore power users, its aimed at people who need a device for watching Netflix, typing up word documents and doing some basic file managment, and the ipad does all those things perfectly well after the release of ipad OS and can even be used to do some real work now. but i think everyone knows that if you have a high budget and want something thin, light and portable, those people buy a mac, a razer blade pro, or an LG gram

New form factor for a computer, not a laptop. It’s still a computer and variety is best

Apple is trying to reinvent the computer. They want the change the definition of the word "computer". "A new way to use a computer".

The mouse has been on computers since 1968. Nothing new here. The MacBook will be obsolete one day. Computing is all about getting things done. If the iPad can do it efficiently then it’s a feasible replacement for a pc or Mac. The iPad Pro is a game changer because of usb-c which combined with a hub allows it to be a desktop machine when connected to a monitor and peripherals.

I think mouse support is just being teased and tested. In iPadOS 14 it may just be like the mouse on a macbook
