It might not replace your laptop, but it's a damn good tablet
- 9.7-inch 2,048 x 1,536 IPS True Tone screen
- Apple A9X CPU with 2GB RAM
- Support for Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard
Apple's 9.7-inch iPad Pro won't replace your laptop. We're sure of that. But it is a really fantastic tablet with a stunning display, iconic build and access to the huge iOS App Store. Let's start with the display; while it's the same resolution as the iPad Air 3, it features something called True Tone tech. This dynamically adjusts the display depending on your environment, making it easier to read in darker conditions.
Like the bigger iPad Pro, it has Apple's A9X CPU and it handles everything with ease, even 4K video editing. There's also support for a duo of add-ons, the addictive Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard. Both are pricey, but great additions to the slate.
It's an awesome media tablet too, with quad-speakers and a 256GB option. We do wish the base model came with more the 32GB storage, though.
