    Man, I really kicked around the idea of getting one but just can't justify the cost for features I probably wouldn't use.

    I don't think the Pro was designed for the consumer market. It's the corporate market that Apple wants to take from MS.

    I like big screens. I went from an iPhone 3 to larger Samsung phones till the 6s plus came out. I used a 12.2 inch Samsung tablet till this morning.
    I like using iOS and like its thinness compared to the Samsung.

    I got my I Pad Pro today. The keyboard and pencil are still unavailable, and will be shipped in a couple of weeks. I have spent weeks preparing to get it. I have put all the information from my I Pad Air 2 in it and am ready to start using it. It is more than I thought it would be. With my diminishing vision, it is way more easy to see. The vision problem is dealt with with this big screen.
    It is even larger than I thought it would be. While it is a "larger" I Pad, it feels much more than the I Pad Air 2. The larger viewing area changes the entire feel of each program. The split screen is much easier to see and work.
    For me, it was worth the wait and investment. Others may feel different, and that is fine.
    I can tell you, that I spend at least hours a day on my I Pad, every day. Most of the time spent is work, and not play. I have no games on the I Pad. The experience of one day without the pencil and keyboard is very non disappointing. I think the addition of these will be even a better experience.
    I did spend much time researching not only the I Pad, but also good workable apps. I spent hours learning the apps. At this point I am extremely satisfied.....and I do not spent this kind of money loosely.
    I have no requests or second thoughts of this purchase. For me, it is going to be a workhorse.....I see new apps that are very good, and think the apps will only get better.....paired with the I Pad make it a must have for me

    You must have iron willpower to resist the temptation to rip open that box for two days.

    i'm going through a major bout of depression this week - i'm currently 1/2 way through a week long treatment from the dentist which includes super strong antibiotics, meaning i cant touch alcohol for 2 weeks, and my car has just packed up. so im in pain with no wheels.

    but, the arrival of my ipad will cheer me up immensely, so i think im planning on opening it up when my drink curfew has ended and my mechanic fixes my car. that night i'll have a megga party to celebrate all good things :)






    (if my wife lets me of course ;) )

    Mine came this morning. Feels great. I'm upgrading from a gen 2 retina so big speed boost too.
    bugs though. My wifes was stuck in portrait mode for 2 reboots then fine. Mine was looking to be dead at first sleep screen and was unresponsive and blank screen. tried everything... two button reset etc... then let it sit and a half hour later tried it and it just turned on cold booting up when i pressed the button.

    My iPad Pro arrived yesterday and I am extremely happy with it. Yes it is heavier than I am used to with my iPad Air but not too so and it can always be used on its stand.

    I love the bigger screen and the on screen keyboard for those apps updated for it is a dream with all major 'numeric' functions accessible without changing screens.

    One area however that really does need addressing, why oh why is the app icon density on the home screens unchanged at 4 rows of 5. I always thought it was inefficient on the basic iPads but now with all that extra screen space it really needs increasing or at least make it configurable.
