New iPad Pro review: can it replace your laptop?

Apple’s new iPad Pro is a beast of a tablet, and Nilay Patel reviews it — everything from its new design and screen to plugging in several devices to the new USB-C port. Dami Lee and William Joel, professional creatives at The Verge, also give their insight into the new iPad and Apple Pencil.

    Great review as always. $2200 is a lot for iOS powered device with the limitations iOS has. I wonder if Apple fragments iOS in to two groups: PadOS and PhoneOS. With the performance and price point the iPad Pros have (really since 2017), they need to be flexible enough to replace a laptop fully. Off topic, but one thing I don’t understand is the iPhone XR screen is bashed, yet has higher PPI than the iPad Pro screen which is praised. I have both the 10.5 iPad Pro and the iPhone XR and I can see vitrually no difference.

    The reason I haven’t purchased an iPad is because of iOS
    I have an iPhone
    And the limitations of apps on iOS are purposeful. The whole reason I need a MacBook is iOS. The mobile OS gets in the way of some things
    I can do a lot of things on my phone, but sometimes you just need full desktop browsing etc. Apple will never allow the iPad Pro to have those functions.
    If they did, with the specs and performance that the iPad Pro has right now, it would destroy the MacBook Pro line, and honestly, some of the iMac sales would drop as well.

    Maybe I’d be interested if there was a boot camp app for this iPad.

    Really great review thanks! I was considering possible the iPad pro but, man, too frustrating.. too many exclusivities Apple won't budge on. Your comment, "the iPad pro is just an accessory to my laptop, not a replacement for it" How true, and that's what Apple seems to want…for people who have a lot of money to buy BOTH vs one that can do both. I can't make my Gmail my default email?! nope. I can't watch higher HD/4k on YouTube?! nope. Too much exclusivity. dam. So frustrating.

    The iPad doesn’t even have a 4K display…why the hell are you upset about YouTube not playing in 4K?

    smh, Liquid Retina doesn't mean rounded corners, it's LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) and Retina. It's just a fancy name for good LCD screens, as opposed to the iPhone XS's OLED technology

    I am android fan boy knowing that Apple's hardware and software is way better than Android's but these are the reasons why I hate Apple… I am willing to pay for a device that you made but it's mine now so let me decide what i will do with it…. Why i have to follow your rules even after paying you so heavily? Why there are so many roadblocks in my way?
    Look at this ipad now, it's way faster than their own laptop but still it can't take place of my laptop

    THANK YOU! I stumbled into your video after watching several others who spent the first several minutes talking about aesthetics and the "unwrapping experience" of opening a new iPad Pro. I mean, really? I just wanted to know how it works, is it worth the price, can it do what I want it to do. You delivered that information to me in a concise manner. I'll be back in the future!

    Thank you for the review man. I was planning on buying the new model but I was thinking of choosing the older model because of the price. I have an iPad Air (original) since it came out and it still works like a charm but the problems I had with it were the size of the screen (its kinda clumsy reading pdf files when you have to zoom and look around what youre looking for) and the memory (16GB). The additions are neats especially the Apple Pencil, but I think the older model is enough for my needs. Thank you!

    Nice review Nilay, you made me realise that I should just keep using my MacBook Pro rather than this expensive gadget with limitations. I'll stick with my Macbook pro and iPad air until OSX comes on the pro.

    This is yet another attempt of apple to market Ipad as a surface pro competitor. Its time apple realized that surface pro does a better job of functioning as a laptop/tablet than iPad .

    The ONLY reason to buy an Apple iPad Pro or any iPad is if you MUST buy into the Apple app ecosystem. If you KNOW you will be using THOSE apps.

    I think the Samsung Tab S4 is more powerful in what you can do. More stylus support. GETTER support. Android is more customize-able. Or their UI. Apple also makes you pay for everything (e.g. pen). No Micro SD slot.

    And if any was truly serious about photo or video editing they wouldn't be using a tablet or a laptop. Tablets are for casual computer users. For the average joe FIRST. Even if there are some "professionals" insisting on using a tablet. In the end one should use "…the right tool for the job…".

    My 2012 Macbook Pro Retina is quickly starting to age. I want to replace it with an iPad, but not being able to use external hard drives is the deal breaker for me. Not to mention how expensive iPads are.

    Very informative video. Amazing how fast the darn thing is and depressing how iOS (or as I call it "toyOS") holds it back. Like a Ferrari with shopping cart wheels. And to think that the top model with all the goodies costs 2200 bone! Run macOS on them and I will certainly consider it. Until then, when I want to walk away from my Mac and use a tablet, I will use my Surface Book.
