    No, Windows more better than iOs.
    In what way?

    Why would they build the technology that makes the iPad stand veritcally into the keyboard? If I'm not missing something here the Surface approach of including a kickstand to the device itself is so much better.

    If you watched the Apple event, you can clearly see that the iPad will affect surface sales. One way or another

    I believe that the iPad Pro may INCREASE Surface Pro sales. Apple charging $99 for their "Pencil" and $170 for their keyboard makes what Microsoft is charging for their accessories seem reasonable. ;)

    The iPad Pro pricing for the device itself is also out of line. They brought nothing more than an increased size to the product line. It shouldn't cost as much as a tablet capable of being a desktop replacement.

    The Surface Pro - Probably not.
    The Surface 3 - Quite Likely.

    If they took some of the spec out of the display to lower the cost, they might be able to do some damage. The lack of a dock to use full size peripherals is a limiting factor - in the end, it's still an iPad with IOS.

    We use SP3's almost exclusively with Docks and ultra-wide monitors. This usually replaces 3 devices for us: a desktop, a notebook used for travel where enterprise apps and support are needed, and an iPad the user had - just 'cause.

    They charge $169 for a keyboard and can't see fit to put a trackpad? Another $99 for a stylus? It may drive iPad sales and knock the doldrums out but I wouldn't worry about Surface Pro sales. The Surface RT, if it were still around, maybe.

    Can't wait to hear the Apple fanboys screaming about having to pay extra for the keyboard and pen like they do with the Surfaces. Should be included, right...? Lol

    This whole thing is a rip off of the surface line.

    And off topic, but still relevant to the launch, 'complications' on the watch? Are they ******* serious?!

    Edit: Then again, it isn't that difficult to confuse the iCultists lol

    Do you know that Apple could charge $1000 and those so called tech-savvy "journalists" and iWashed would still say that it is reasonable. From what I've been reading since the event, no one has complained about the pen, oh no it is Apple Pencil and the keyboard. Some sites even dare to predict that iPad Pro will be a better product. Yet even before the Surface 3 and Pro 3was released, many had already managed to moan about the pen and the keyboard. It's just ridiculous how "retardised" our world has become. And can anyone confirm if the pen...Pencil has palm rejection technology? Because from what I've seen, it looks like you'll have to keep your hand at a distance when you are trying to be productive with this "revolutionary innovation".

    I believe iPad Pro should support palm rejection. It will be a big joke and shame if it does not support this must-have feature.

    They even claimed the Apple Pencil is capable of dealing with even a single pixel. Well, assuming Apple's claim is true, it is market gimmick again because ordinary people cannot move their hand with precision up to 1 pixel (without magnifying the screen).

    Very true. I just hope people realise that the surface pro 3 is actually a way better deal.

    The only thing "Pro" about an iPad is the Apple Marketing Department. If they can make this boat anchor sell, they deserve a raise.

    And in what aspect is it revolutionary? If you call the graphic quality, then no...it's not revolutionary at all.

    I wouldn't worry about the iPad pro OR any other iPad versus the surface pro. Like you said, the iPad will only get recognition as a toy. It will never be used as a laptop device.
    I agree with everything but your last sentence.

    I constantly see people as I travel with keyboard attachments on their iPad struggling to do actual work. It gives me good laugh as I pull out my SP3.

    For no other reason than to show them how much of a toy their iPad is, I work on some spreadsheets for a while then pull off the keyboard and play some games or attach my portable hard drive to watch movies.
