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

Apple should have used macOS as a basis for iPadOS!
Casman Day ago
Laptops are compromised desktops, tablets are compromised laptops, smartphones are compromised tablets. Point is, nothing is better for productivity and general usability than a dedicated monitor with a keyboard and mouse despite how good the GUI is. At least until some new revolutionary form of physical human to machine interface is invented like mind control or something. Apple is never going to change what is considered the gold standard for computing unless they truly reinvent the wheel.

Why do people want the iPad to be a computer though? Let the iPad be... an iPad.

It's mind numbing how foolish it is to buy this product. Deliberately crippled as to not compete with their other flagship products. It's junk folks. Junk! Get an macbook air instead.

My iPad Pro mini is the most convenient and hassle free machine I ever had. I swing trade and bank on it. Emails, gaming, social media, fake news, with bluetoof, WiFi and speakers, what more could one want? The mini fits your hands perfect in landscape mode, for two thumb typing, gaming and whatever. The value of my mini is 10 fold, because I invested 1200 in Bitcoin and made 10k. If not for the ease of use, I would have never accomplished that.

YOu still can't multitask. If you close minecraft or roblox and open safari you quit the game on ipad. On windows you can open a new tab and still have the game running without quitting.

If they wanted to win over Windows users, they should fully make iOS become pc centric features WITHOUT any “Apple” compromises, including the mouse, since Windows 7 is ending this year.

I hope ipados provide terminal with full feature like mac os terminal or at least for the iPad Pro an IDE is provided for javascript programming or something like that

device like this are the future. Nobody wants to buy a full flexed PC to get basic task done and for some high end gaming. When these game streaming services start off then the almighty pc kinda becomes useless.

Yeh true but just because you stood in poo doesn't mean you need to wash your feet. Marcus loves the time you said it was a good idea to buy that but don't believe everything she says because you might die.

Great video that presents both sides of the argument well. I don't think Apple should ever release a MacBook with touch screen support. People are constantly asking for mouse/keyboard support on tablets for more complex tasks. Well, laptops are designed for more of those tasks. Why would you want to use touchscreens on a product where mouse/touchpad/keyboard is already better for what you're doing on it. Leave it out and keep the laptops less bulky.

The iPad is a tablet and the Mac is the computer. The iPad has no desire to unify. This is not a Surface, nor does it want to be. I love the iPad as it is. The pro will have more features, but it will never be a Mac. They might as well remove the mouse support. That attempt is just sad.

If you can afford two devices, an iPad Pro is a really great assistant or mobile workspace for folks on the go. But if you can only afford an iPad or a laptop, get the laptop. Even if tablets are the future, it will be years before an iPad is more useful or efficient than a laptop.

Apple products are basically just the jitterbug for people smart enough to be able to flick a light switch, but still too stupid to figure out how to change the lightbulb.

I agree the iPad Pro is not a laptop. But then for a lot of things, it is better. Sometimes, we have to rethink the way we are interfacing with technology. Just like Final Cut Pro X is not a video editor, it is a film editor. Premiere is a video editor. Once I realized this, I fell in love with FCPX.

On Which? IPad Pro is easier than a Laptop for basic computing. Being able to touch the screen is natural compared to a mouse. The operating system does most of the work. It has been made simple because it is based on the consumer IOS. Going to the web, writing email, banking, etc are all controlled by apps that just login by seeing my face. No passwords to use once set up. Everything is smaller and lighter than a laptop with great battery life and much easier to carry. The iPad Pro does not require a track pad or mouse. I do recommend the Apple keyboard as it does not require Bluetooth. I am writing this on it right now on it and it is natural and easy. It suggests words if I want to use them. I like the mail app in that I can just swipe to the left to get rid of an email or file it. Because there are so many apps out there most things can be done with an app with out going to the web on a browser. I can import photos from my camera by a cable or card reader into photos. For basic video editing there is iMovie and these projects can be imported into FCPX. With the new iPad OS coming this fall with give us a lot more functions like working with USB sticks, drives and a host of other features. The downside of using it as a laptop is that there are a lot of applications that don’t have iPad apps yet. The file system is restrictive. I have a Microsoft Surface Go as well and I like the touch part of it but it is more clunky to operate as it is using windows 10 which is not as user friendly.
