Whatever happened to the so called "optimization"

Now. Just make an ipad mini pro with 8GB+ RAM.
8-9 inches is the ideal tablet size, especially for reading.
The pro models give me carpal tunnel syndrome... As for surface pro. It has a warning 'intel inside'.
I don't want that lol

I wonder if those people who are so quick to dismiss Surface Pros have actually use the device, I mean having Windows 11 just made it much more better as a tablet, I use my Pro X as a tablet when I'm not on my phone. I always have it on my bedside. The screen, speaker and its thinness is so gorgeous! Not to mention, it's also a full fledge computer and with Android apps coming, for me that's only a bonus.

Also iPad *is* getting the productivity of laptops little by little. They have the power already, they just don't want to cannibalize MacBook sales , so they do it excruciatingly slowly...

Might as well start saying earth is flat.

Other than that a couple of Samsungs, OnePluses gets the same rating. I have used Reno 10x Zoom for a couple of months. The placement of the earpiece speaker is dumb as hell. But nonetheless good unbalanced sound.

YUKI93, 18 Sep 2021"Apple's iPad Pro is advertised as a worthy subst... moreThat's not how Apple's ethos works. Just simply putting a cursor drivven OS in to a touchscreen device isn't something that would slip in to their mind.

"Apple's iPad Pro is advertised as a worthy substitute of your laptop..."

Nah, not at all. Microsoft Surface Pro is still a worthy buy. Unless Apple ditches iPadOS for macOS on iPad Pro models, I won't be in a hurry to do the switch at all.
