    It's still an Ipad though. Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole (as they say)

    Matter of opinion, and certainly not mine. They suit most people that don't want to do anything too taxing though.

    It would be better if it ran OSX rather than iOS, and so be a true portable computer.

    Why would you choose one over a Macbook Air which will be about the same price. Jury's out for me on that, I seriously don't think we need bigger tablets.

    Perfect example marketing over substance for the gullible..IPad a heavy, expensive joke

    there was an article recently where some jokers introduced THE new Apple IOS for testing on an Apple device. The reviewers raved about it!! ended up with egg on their faces when it was revealed it was stock android that they had managed to install on apple device:rolleyes:

    The iMac isn't a laptop o_O I don't care how good the iPad is, you can't replace a 27 inch display with a 12 inch one.

    I'm just about to order a new iMac for work. I've been thinking about it for a while but was in an Apple store yesterday and saw what the new 5K retina display it has actually looks like and I'm sold! I'd be buying one even if I didn't need it!

    The iPad Pro will just have the same standard Retina display as MacBooks which is still amazing but the 5K one is on a completely different level.

    I can't see it replacing my MacBook Pro anytime soon, especially as it's only going to be running a new flavour of iOS, not OS X

    I have an iPad IOS 8.4.1, I also have a recent iMac desktop with OS X Yosemite, I much prefer the IOS with my Bluetooth Keyboard. (Apps are far cheaper as well) but there again I don't want anything too taxing;)

    Only if you have nothing to compare it with. Unfortunately Microsoft monopolised the personal computer market despite it's operating system being the worst piece of sh*te ever invented. If you're technically competent there are so many other (better) operating systems out there (including OSX) but Mr and Mrs Average are stuck with Windows and simply have to get used to its inadequacies.

    My mistake Nic, I meant MacBook, not iMac, I was comparing a 13" iPad with other laptops, including the MacBook.

    Jury's not out for me. As you say we don't need bigger tablets and I think a 13" screen is going make it too big to be easily used as a portable tablet. Also I would choose OS X over iOS given the chance for anything other than playing around.

    Well that says to me that I am either Mr or Mrs Average and that you Mr poohbear ARE so technically superior that you have discovered and covet other (better) OSystems or are we just dealing with your opinion here.
