    Unboxing the 2018 iPad Pro 11 inch and 12.9 inch. Is the iPad Pro a computer yet? Can it replace a MacBook?

    "Is it worth laptop money" and "can it replace a MacBook" are two entirely separate questions. If you want a really nice tablet, the iPad Pro can be worth $1,000. But that doesn't mean it's replacing a laptop.

    A really nice sportbike can cost Corolla money. It can be totally "worth the price" without having to be "a sedan replacement."

    Depends on what you are using the MacBook for? I could totally replace my laptop with a Tablet, the Only reason I use A laptop is because touchscreens aggravate my arthritis. Hell, I could replace my laptop with a $329 iPad Quite easily.

    As an ipad user, this one is easy. NO. I use my ipad for reading, and watching videos while sitting on the couch. If I want to do something, I grab my dell 2 in 1!

    For that particular use case, the iPad Pro isn't good value at $1000ish, but the $329 iPad is the best value for a tablet on the market.

    Developers will create apps to reach the lowest common denominator. With very few exceptions, we've not seen anything that could really push the first-generation iPad Pro to its limits.
