It’s difficult to argue with this conclusion if you’ve used an iPad Pro for a few days. James Kendrick:
More than the big screen and a laptop-quality keyboard, the speed of the iPad Pro is the biggest factor in why I like it so much. The performance is outstanding, with everything I do happening instantly. That’s the case with opening apps and updating lots of information. The iPad Pro really pops things on the screen and I never have to wait for apps to respond.
All of these criteria make the iPad Pro the best tablet I’ve used to date. The big display, nice keyboard, and performance of the iPad Pro make it the iPad without equal for me. I am using it all day every day as a result and find it to be a system without compromise.
The compromise, of course, is iOS vs. OS X and Mac-level apps vs. iPad apps. There are more of the latter than the former but for sheer heavy lifting, the Mac wins (and, bang for the buck; compare specs from MacBook vs. iPad Pro).
