    So now iPadPro has been announced. What do you guys think?

    Let's do not focus on the functionalities of the two devices. Let's concentrate on consumers' perception.

    What would the average consumers think when Microsoft came to the stage at Apple's event???

    It's an apple product. It will sell very well. It's all about the hype.

    Consumer perception: Apple > All

    At least the surface has a product that it can actually compete with of the same form factor.

    The iPad Pro will be a niche product mostly used by creative professionals in my opinion, much like the Mac Pro. It is way too big and way to expensive when you add in the accessories to be an impulse buy. I think the Surface Pro 4 will easily beat the iPad Pro sales, but overall when you add all the iPad models, I think they will still sell more than the Surface line. Just my two cents.

    My guess is iPad Pro outsells all Surface devices within several months.

    The competition between Apple and Microsoft is indeed not a fair game because Apple's products almost always sell well. To beat Apple in terms of sales, Microsoft has to offer products which are 10 times better.

    The iPad Pro isn't functional enough to be used professionally by digital artists. It's not a PC. It's a big iPad with a pen.
    Even though it has "Pro'" in the name, it still is a consumer device. It's not a professional device.
    With that said, it will sell like gangbusters. But so would any new iPad.

    I largely agree with it. While the iPad Pro will likely outsell all of the Surfaces combined when it comes to total consumer sales, I dont think it will make that big a dent when it comes to professionals.

    I own Aspire P3 (i5 128GB) and iPad 2.

    I found both devices work in different ways. I doubt iPad pro can disrupt. Surface LINE which run full windows OS. I found myself in lot of situation while iPad can and my aspire can.

    Nevermind office on iOS other productivity apps isn't really do the job. But iPad gave me great entertainment

    haha!

    i prefer the surface line myself but dammit if steve jobs didn't do a masterful job creating mind-share.

    regardless of actual capabilities, there will be iFlocks of people lining up to buy it and declare iPad Pro the greatest thing ever for artists and what not.
