when Apple goes full retard .. never go full retard - iPad Pro better than a computer

 

so get this ... an iPad Pro is better than a computer

because?! it has a screen you can write on and it's faster than some laptops 

 

what the fuck :|

 

---

 

I'm not saying the iPad PRO isn't powerful, I'm not saying the touch screen isn't useful

but for the price of one you could very well get a better laptop?!?

 

their top of the line config can go over 1000$ without accessories http://www.apple.com/shop/buy-ipad/ipad-pro/12.9-inch-display-256gb-silver-wifi-cellular

The like to dislike ratio doesn't agree with Apple. 

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

This is old hat for Apple, roll out a "new" product while toting it as the "replacement" for their competitor's products.

I guess if you consider the facts it probably has better performance than a lot of the iMacs and MacBooks they have released recently.

Because I'd happily swap my SP3 for an iPad Pro if I could. 

 

Is it "better" than a computer (desktop OS), no. Is it sometimes a better choice than a computer (desktop OS)? yes.

did you paid 1 grand for the SP3?

I paid $500 for a used i3/64gb SP3 whereas an 12.9" iPad Pro would cost me $800 new ($600~ used).

Have you ever looked at the majority of students that use word/office/etc...? At least half just open everything through recent documents and don't have a clue where anything is saved. Most people don't even need access to the file system. I also mostly use my SP3 to take notes with One Note, so to me it wouldn't make a difference, however, I would much rather use iOS than W10 on a tablet.

Well that is an outright lie so they could be sued for false advertising

 

Anyway unless we are talking 300 dollar laptops it is not more powerful, and any laptop with a dedicated gpu and/or a i7 is better than it so they have indeed gone full retard

maybe if you weren't such an idiot you may not have viruses, or just run an anti malware scan ever few months 

Come on now we all know that the real reason for there being more viruses on PCs is that they have a substantially higher user base.

If Apple gained more traction and they had more pockets to pilfer the bad guys would focus a lot more on the Mac side of things.

I'm all for talking shit about companies when it's deserved, but this guy's post should be put in off-topic or even locked since there's another thread about this video already.

I am, but this news story is fluff for the sake of fluffing the day. Why don't you research a way for me to cool my PC or fuel my car with bourbon/applejack.

I'm surprised they aren't over 1000 bucks though I'd bet they only have 64GB of storage for 800
