In the MacRumors forum, one iPad Pro owner started a thread he titled "The best product Apple has ever made" and his post spawned a long discussion thread. I'll share my thoughts below, but here's a sampling of that thread including the comment from the original poster:
Why I still haven't bought the iPad Pro
As you can tell from the comments, there are some folks in the MacRumors Forum that love their iPad Pros. It's clearly a big winner for them, and they have no regrets whatsoever about buying it.
I, on the other hand, have still not bought one. I have gone to an Apple Store and used one for a while. I was enthralled with the bigger screen and how much better it made web pages and ebooks. And I'm not kidding when I say that either, the extra screen space just made it so much better to read on than even the iPad Air 2.
The iPad Pro may actually be the best ereader ever created since not only can it handle ebooks, but it's perfect for magazines, comic books and any other kind of reading material. I found myself quickly becoming immersed in anything I started reading on the iPad Pro.
And yet I've decided to hold off on buying one and here's why:
1. I'm not sure if the iPad Pro would be comfortable to use laying on the couch or sitting in a chair. It almost feels like something that would work best on a desktop.
2. It lacks the 3D Touch feature found in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. While this is not a huge deal breaker, it does kind of disappoint me and makes me think that it might be better to hold out for version 2 of the iPad Pro.
3. I already have an iPad Air 2 and it works pretty well for me. So it's kind of hard to justify spending the money on the iPad Pro (despite the fact that part of me wants one).
4. I have no real use for the Apple Pencil, and that's one of the neatest features of the iPad Pro.
Of course I reserve the right to change my mind and buy an iPad Pro. But right now it feels like I don't have a valid enough use case to justify getting one. And the size of the iPad Pro may not work well for me in the same way that the iPad Air 2 does right now.
