    I can’t believe Brian still has the CNET app. I deleted it when he switched to UZclip!

      You know I didn’t realize it but I stopped using CNET since Brian left also. Not really on purpose just happened. I like your review and I’ve watched about a 100 reviews on this thing so far. I’m in the market for a new MacBook since mine was from back in 2010 and is on its last leg. I went back and forth between the 13” non Touch Bar MacBook Pro and the 256gb iPad Pro 12.9”. I needed up ordering the iPad. Should get it here soon. I do plan on doing some medium duty video editing on it so I’ll see how that goes. The way I see it is I’ll get an iPad anyway so this way I already have my iPad if I need the MacBook. However if it’s capable enough I’ll have no need for the MacBook. Tie will tell.

    I always enjoy your videos, your point of view is honest and spot on, I have the new iPad Pro 12.9 1Tb unit and I love it, Apple keeps the iPad in it’s place so that they don’t Kill their MacBook division, if they put everything in the iPad Pro there wouldn’t be a Need for anything else, so I don’t know when the last time you decided to shot yourself in the foot? So why would Apple, they know they have a market for iPads and MacBooks and there’s no need to stop because both have fans and most Apple buyers will buy Both!!! So again great work and continue doing what you do!!! We are watching my friend, God Bless

    I'm super excited to see what Apple will bring with iOS 13. More pro apps and more of a hybrid OS will hopefully be amazing this year. I absolutely love the iPad Pro in a lot of ways, and based on how shitty their laptops have been for a few years, I'm working on transitioning a lot of my work onto the iPad.

    The reason the iPad still can’t fully replace a laptop is because of apple themselves, if they turned the iPad into a computer replacing on the go machine, MacBook sales would plummet, and that’s their main source of income

    Brian, as much as I enjoy watching your videos I am afraid you are not actually qualified to review pro line apple products bro. It is like a commoner reviewing a race car. The review is going to be about the color, looks of it and the sound. But unless you drive it, you have no idea what is under the hood. Get the drift???

    Brian. You can do video editing on your new iPad Pro. Take a look at Jonathan Morrison’s video where he does a video editing project using an app called Luma fusion. He demonstrates his work flow and the power of this app which is being compared to Final Cut Pro X and has many of its features. That said Apple needs to release Final Cut Pro for the iPad. The hardware is certainly now powerful enough to run Final Cut Pro. iOS 12 was to work out the bugs that plague the OS. iOS 13 should introduce the professional features that this iPad is drastically lacking like the file management system and support for external SSDs and much more. I think you should attempt to contact Tim Cook and have a one on one discussion with him about many of the things you brought up in this video. I find that we are asking these questions in a vacuum and you wonder if the appropriate people are listening. Very frustrating. Love your videos. Keep up the great work. let’s hope for the best in 2019.

    Never could be your computer:

    No graphics card
    outdated hardware
    no real files (They are stored in badly made cloud things)
    no ability to use Exe or emulators.
    very overpriced
    pen needs charging unlike samsung's pen

      Wow I never saw a comment that dump.
      1 no graphic card:
      It has the same graphic power of a xbox 1s, it is by far the best graphic card even saw on a tablet.
      Outdated hardware: it has the latest chip from Apple that is fast like the i9 MacBook!!!!
      Another time something that we never saw in a tablet.
      3 bad storage...
      It can get up to 1 terabyte of storage.
      4 It can’t run exe or emulators...
      Now tell me a tablet with a mobile OS that can run exe or emulator.
      5 very overpriced.
      It depend on what model you pick.
      If you pick the 11” 64gb is really good for what it offers.
      6 the Apple Pencil charge weir less at touched to the iPad.

    Brian Tong, I got rid of my iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) and replaced it with a Thinkpad X1 Yoga OLED and will never go back. It’s comparable in price, and the Yoga has a better screen and is a real computer.

    7:00 I get what you’re saying but that is just lazy. It takes 2 seconds and I find on my iPad Pro it’s Face ID is a lot easier and overall better than Touch ID because it is quicker and more accurate.

    I just used mine to edit all the photos I took from a paid shoot. It was very nice to edit on in Adobe Lightroom CC. It’s nice that all my raw photos sync to the adobe cloud and to my NAS drive at home along with the edit .xmp files. Once I’m done I delete the project from my iPad and the cloud to free up space and can access from the NAS drive at anytime. I’m finding work arounds that really aren’t inconvenient it’s just not what I’m use to. I think iOS will get to be more convenient but we will also have to find different ways of doing things.
    Apple is almost on the 13th iteration of iOS and hopefully they’ll add some features such as external hard drive usage etc. Ultimately the apps I’ve used are very fast and in some cases faster than a fully loaded iMac like mine. This seems to be due to very optimized code. In the future we may look back and think how clunky OSX was. Today it doesn’t seem that way but I honestly think we’ll see iOS eventually take over once apple goes back to using their own processors in laptops and desktops. Time will tell.

    im in the apple ecosystem since 2013 Jan,
    loving my iphones and macbook pro,
    but jerry was right,
    surface pros are laptops in the form of tablet and Ipad is mobile in the form of tablet.
    and to me, even if apple makes it most powerfull device by putting an intel core i7/i9 or xeon processing inside an ipad with the same os,
    whats the use of those power and geek bench scores,
    ipad is nothing but an iphone xR Max, and its only good for Netflix and youtube

    Can the iPad replace my MacBook Pro? The answer to that is easy hell no. I’m a professional artist and music producer and engineer and I have been for a long time. This thing cannot replace a laptop if someone tells you that it can, it’s because they are really in love with Apple and easily impressed.

    Remember something it’s a business they’re not going to cannibalize there other products to make this a pro device that would utterly replace the whole line. Also it’s ironic with a slight of hand but they debut this in the same event that day debut the MacBook Air LOL if it’s the laptop replacement they don’t even believe that just thought I would bring that up I think it’s a great device. But know what you use it for this is more of a companion device you handoff Simplest of tasks to and free up your main workhorse devise less windows less clutter etc. more resources toward your task at hand

    I get already a desk computer ( I use it 65 % of time). What should I get ?
    I'm afraid to be limited with a iPad pro but affinity design could be a good start for my training and specially with the pen.

    he is so right the ipad pro will never replace your computer and it is to expensive, just get a mac or any other computer that actually will do its job right. I used the ipad pro through my college years without using a computer and it was a pain in the butt, because to go back to my notes, read my ebook while i am working a paper, it is super hard to do it and not worth it. I missed using my mouse to navigate and to open and close windows, so trust me on this one if you want it to be a show off them do it but i feel like you Iphone can do what i do which is netflix, email, check some notes, navigate the web, unless you want to get the apple pencil and write your notes there, but even when you do that i think typing is so much better than write on a ipand.

    I definitely not going to say an iPad Pro can replace your computer but between Affinity’s Designer and Codesandbox People like me who do design and front end development work can do more than we even dreamed about 3 years ago. Yes I obviously still use my iMac when I. At work but if I want to do some work on the weekend or away from the office this iPad Pro might fit the bill without carrying my laptop, because right now I carry around both.

    Great video on day to day use and nuisances. Your video editing is also on point.
    I have an Air 2 and in my situation I wouldn't recommend an upgrade. Now if someone has an older ipad 3 or 4 I would consider it, a 2 or original then definitely. My Air 2 is one of lightest and thinnest but when they introduced the New iPad (base) it was actually closer to the Air 1, got a little thicker, still not as bad as the OG 1-4. Despite the speed difference you won't notice much more real life usage unless you actually want a thinner tablet, the software is just similar enough. It's tough to be excited to upgrade when these things last 5 or more years reliably.

    Here is the problem with 99% of the reviews out there on the new iPad Pro. They are all done by those that make videos and not business users. This device for business is incredible! It’s always on function is a dream when you are in meetings. Handwriting is near flawless and it integrates well Office 365 and Google. Video Conferencing is flawless and always works. I could care less about cutting videos or drawing. As a business device, this can be a near laptop replacement.

    Could not agree more about the starting price. With the restrictions that Apple puts on iPad and factoring in the cost, this is nothing more than a media consumption device. I would love to have one but just can’t justify until the limitations/handcuffs are removed

    Yes it can replace your computer. Anyone old enough to remember the debates about: ‘can a laptop ever replace your desk top.’ :) (Eh, probably just me.) Some may want to check out State of Tech video on connecting any external hard drives to iPad if your into that, myself, I live in the cloud.
