Becky Hansmeyer’s iPad Pro impressions

iOS developer Becky Hansmeyer has written up a log of her iPad Pro impressions, good and bad:

Um, so, yeah. A bunch of great iPad Pro reviews/impressions have trickled out over the past few weeks—so many in fact that I was hesitant to even write my own. I agree with much of what has already been expressed: the hardware is great, the software has numerous pain points, and the answer to “can this device replace your laptop?” is the same as it’s always been, which is “yep, maybe, probably not.” Yep for a ton of people that use computers for light work and entertainment, maybe for professionals in certain fields or with particular priorities and workflows, and probably not for the rest.

This is a really solid look at the good and bad of the current iPad Pro models, right down to the functional-but-super-boring Smart Keyboard Folio. I’m so glad Becky decided to write this, despite all the other articles on the subject.
