Leo's Thoughts on the New iPad Pro

Episode 1539 (02:04)

iPad Pro with Keyboard

Leo got a 256GB iPad Pro this week, and Leo says the iPad Pro is a sexy piece of technology. It's so thin, they couldn't even put a headphone jack in it! But he also says that after buying the keyboard folio, the magnetic Apple Pencil 2, and the iPad itself, he was into it for over $1600. He also says it far surpasses a comparable laptop in many ways. It has the True Tone display, an adaptive Liquid Retina display, an eight core A12x Bionic chip which is 7nm small, the smallest processor ever, and 7 GPUs. It's incredibly fast. Faster than 92% of all laptops sold, according to Apple. But Leo says it's still running iOS, and without a mouse or trackpad, you can't really edit text very well, and you can't access the file system. You also can't attach external storage, in spite of the fact it uses a Type-C connector. Leo says it's unfortunate that you have all that power, but it's still essentially just an oversized iPhone. Leo says it's also hard to keep it clean — he's got fingerprints all over it!
