Wow, nice price for 512GB. But I would never recommend iPad Pro unless you are in profession that requires writing on the screen (drawing for artist, note taking for student, etc).
Other than that, it is an overkill, expensive tablet for normal people. It is fast for sure. It has the big screen that's comparable to a typical 13" laptop. But can it run actual desktop/laptop software? no. Is there any app in App Store that utilize the power of iPad Pro? close to none. Does it bend easily? yes. Is it light enough to use as ebook reader? no.
I been using iPad Pro 3rd gen. ever since it came out. As a student, it really worked out well. But I don't see myself buying another one once I get out of college. I recommend regular iPad with 10" which is more portable and has greater value for its price.
I had 3 major reasons for choosing iPad Pro over regular iPad.

1. 12.9" is perfect screen size for the student.
The size of iPad Pro 12.9" is almost identical to US Letter size papers. As a student who often receives assignments, textbooks, or any handout pdfs in US Letter size, it looks and feels natural to work with on iPad Pro. Plus, bigger screen means more real estate to work with. I don't have to worry about writing notes as small as possible to make them fit into the screen.

Here's comparison of screen and the paper: Link [socialcompare.com]

2. Apple Pencil is made for iPad Pro.
Although the regular iPad is compatible, they are not designed to work with Apple Pencil professionally. Any electronics with screen have gaps between the screen glass and the screen panels. The iPad Pro reduced these gaps to its minimal to be more responsive and make it feel more natural to write on. The regular iPad, on the other hand, has a huge gap. You can immediately feel the bending of glass when you press it down with the pencil. And the response time is slower to the point it is noticeable.

3. More features to work with Apple Pencil.
The magnetic charging is a huge deal for me. It can be charged conveniently and I don't have to worry about it rolling around on the desk while not using it (had this issue many times with previous gen). Plus, note taking tasks are often CPU heavy. Handwriting recognition, automatic text conversions, pdf conversions, etc etc can take some time. Thankfully iPad Pro comes with unnecessarily powerful chipset that can finish the task quickly.


With that said, I still don't know if its worth the price. I mean, I purchased it. Although it had a ridiculous price tags (easily $1200> with pencils and tax), I considered it as an investment for my future career (be more efficient at school for grades etc etc). But as a regular consumer, I.. just don't know..
Once you go 12.9", you never go back. I've been using my 2017 version for 3 years (256gb during that crazy Best Buy sale where it cost $599.) and when I go back to my Air 2, it feels like an etch a sketch..

Why would you choose iPad Pro then as the cheapest iPad right now also supports Apple Pencil?

Full versions of Office and Photoshop are now on iOS.

Looks like you are still a student. In the real world this machine is a workhorse.
I completely agree. That's why I mentioned "unless you are in profession that requires..."

However, there are many aspects that makes me think "its not there yet."
First, the Office apps are indeed improved since they first launched. But it is still far from being a full pledge version. There are many features still missing from iOS version and I cannot think of any reason why would anyone use Office app on iPad Pro (even with ridiculous $350 keyboard) when they can do it more efficiently on regular laptop.
Second, the same story goes to Photoshop. Although it is getting closer to include all the features from regular desktop version, iOS version still suffers from compatibility issues with filters and whatnot. Again, if you are an artist or content creator who needs on-the-go machine to work it, yeah iPad Pro is a fantastic choice. But as a regular user, not really appealing is my opinion..

I think only the newer IPad Pro models support the new 300 to $ 350 Apple Keyboard.

If that's important to you.
Don't guess, research and you'll find out that you are working. How I know? I'm using it with my 2018 pro.

Sorry, this is incorrect. 2018 models can use the new magic keyboard cover if you want to pay for it.

Air is a nice middle of the road. It has the laminated screen so the gap is like the pro. Missing the refresh rate. Ipad Pro still worthwhile for many reasons over air.Just a mater of the consumers needs. Just like cars different models might work well for different users.

Really great review. I've been teetering between a pro and standard iPad ever since the pros were announced. I have no real need for the pro but it is very appealing. It sounds like I honesty wouldn't benefit much out of a pro as I mainly use my iPad for videos and not much else. I barely use a fraction of my 64gb of storage. Sounds like I'll be better off with the standard iPad for my use cases. Cheers. Take my updoot.
