I was looking at it, thinking i could cart it around easily when I visit my Grandma and use it to send video to the family. Mostly all my family has iphones, and I do a lot of Facetime with my family in states and overseas. Is the camera on the new tablet okay for that, have you tried with skype or Facetime yet? I picked up the new macbook but returned it was the camera quality for cam was so poor

I have not used that yet, but note that the “air” models are the low end for example an iPad Air is like $350 and I paid $1200 for the iPad Pro watch this video about the iPad Pro it is a marvel of technology as soon as you start to use it you know it’s something special

Yeah seen the video where the jerryrigeverything guy snaps it in half ,

The iPad 2 has survived us for 8 years that would be awesome if this one would last like that

People have had them bend really easily in backpacks, and even arrive bent from the factory, so just be careful.

I’m still a bit bitter that I had to pay for a replacement iphone 6 that bent, even after paying for Apple care, and after the news came out that they were aware internally that the phone was more likely to bend than previous model.

The new iPads do seem awesome though.

It does look good but I doubt Apple are going to shift many units in the UK at the current price tag. £769.00 to £1,869.00 is an eye-watering price range.

you can get the iPad Air for under $400 it has the A12 processor

I can justify the price because mine is the central hub for my families entertainment , I shut my home internet off and direct tv and got the cellular model with unlimited hotspot and subscribed to Netflix

We have various versions of the iPad here which are all used extensively everyday and worth every penny/cent. I just feel these new models are pushing the boundaries price wise.

I paid the same price for my MacBook Pro , it’s a different experience if I could only have one piece of technology it would be my MacBook Pro (with internet) even over my phone

My MacBook Pro changed my life pretty much if it was to die today I would buy another one immediately , I can live with out the iPad Pro but it is really neat and super duper fast and comfortable to watch movies on it and just browse the internet, you tube what ever...

I was hot spotting to my MacBook to watch you tube and using all my hot spot data, now I have unlimited on the iPad and use it’s hot spot to game on... I’m playing division 2 on ps4 PSN: DieselMinded

About my MacBook Pro ....Aside from the obvious things like the instant hard drive (literally had for 6 mths before I seen any sort of loading screen .. didn’t think it even had one) The heptic mouse pad with force touch is just the most amazing interface I’ve ever used outside of the opposite sex
