Weekly poll: will you buy into the computer-grade performance of the new iPad Pros?

25 April 2021
With M1 chipsets, these are not far off a MacBook Air without a keyboard. Actually, the iPad Pro 12.9 has a better screen than the Mac laptop.

What is the point of all that power when software limit it?

Apple software is good for editing some basic videos, drawing and typing some short text, but in real work you need to deal with lots of different files formats, work with other devices(other computers, pendrivers, sensors, other not-iOS devices)exporting/importing files, typing long code text, have precise pointer movement, jump from one app to another with the same files and we all known how file/folder structure work on iOS, all app have their own environment and you cant drag files between them, not to mention pain in transferring them between other devices.

But its not only Apple, Android is also not really good at real work, even if you have proper access to files and you have more options in terms of i/e tablet is just an additional tool in work, it cant replace more advanced software that you can get on computer.

My $1100 LTE enabled, with expandable storage option, call options, WhatsApp, 12.9 inches WQHD AMOLED screen with stylus Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ is neatly serving my purpose...a big no for any iPads

[deleted post]what app? replace what? with laptop/PC you get almost everything you need... i think it more durable too for over 7 years. $1100 for a tablet? the rest of it you can buy mi pad 5

The 12.9 inch one should be a laptop,I just hope it can install MacOS so I can use it replace my Macbook Air.
12.9 in is too big for a tablet but very suitable as laptop.
It have Thunder 4 Port,16GB RAM and 2T ROM,M1 chip,it is a dual in one laptop

This Q is a joke, right? No tab can be compared to a full fledged PC/notebook with proper hardware (macs not included because of their game-less OSs).

There's no way i'd ever consider an Apple device ever. But honestly, when it comes to tablets, i think they are totally useless in general, so i doubt i'd consider any other brand too.

[deleted post]Is there any android tablet which can beat iPad Pro.

Having iPadOS instead of macOS make these iPads a waste of money. You can barely do anything with that software, meanwhile macOS can do almost anything

[deleted post]M1 has twice the power of SD888. So the heating isn't a problem. And u should also compare it with other laptops which have huge batteries, multiple big fans which make noise and unable to carry. And M1 solved all the problems that laptops used to have.

For someone looking for a top end tablet it’s not brainer to get an android one like Samsung Tab. The iPad had always had the edge when it comes to dedicated apps now with M1 chip and thunderbolt gives you more compared to a similar priced Samsung Tab. There is no doubt that Apple will bring computer grade apps when announces the new iPadOS, that’s the reason why they put in it the M1 chip.

this is revolutionary 👏👏

Yes, these sound decent to me. However, I can't say that they appeal to me more so than my late model flagship handset, especially to the point that I would purchase one of them.
