Couple of tweets about the new iPad and iOS 11. It is inferior to a laptop in almost every way, unless you like to draw.

If you think you can replace you laptop with this setup: you cannot. Imagine a computer, but everything works worse than you expect.

If you're going to get a tablet, at least make sure it runs Windows. The apple store is simply too restrictive for that much real estate.

What do you think the biggest drawbacks are to it when comparing it to a smaller laptop, like a Chromebook?

That is the new iPad. Now, I know the software is in beta, but I also know how Apple betas work. They don’t massively change.

I have no doubt it’s a very powerful piece of hardware, and the screen is gorgeous. Garageband is a lot of fun to play with.

I guess that's why Apple still makes laptops, because they recognize the difference.

Totally agree, if you want a powerful device, the SP4 its a better option.

But this doesn’t COME CLOSE to replacing your laptop, even for simple things you do, like email. AND one other thing. Apple’s keyboard cover

Is a fucking atrocity. A terrible piece of hardware. Awkward to use, poor as a cover. Okay in a pinch if you need something LIKE a keyboard.

Anyhow good to know there are still Apple fanboys who get mad if you insult their products. But I don’t think it’s a very good product.

I have pretty have RSI, so using the Pro has been helpful for me versus a laptop. All your points are also right

stability isn’t the issue, it’s UI/UX, it’s the limitations of the core system and what they’re trying to work around

Finally, iOS 11 is definitely a STEP in the right direction. But guys the iPad has been around forever and it still feels half-assed.

I don't understand why they don't just make the Bluetooth mouse or track pad compatible with the iPad. Desktop experience-y

Completely agree. It is not a laptop replacement for a large, large portion of users. Just frustrating to use.

What it lacks? An iPad wouldn’t replace a Mac for me, working on IT, but seems good enough to be the only computer while travelling
