iPad Pro is a spec bump, but damn is it a good one!

iPad provided by Apple for review.
I don't get why nobody is talking about the lack of mouse support on iPads. It is so frustrating to use your iPad with a keyboard and then still have to touch the damn thing every time you want to open, close or switch something. I can't be the only one being annoyed about this... 😡😡😡
I wonder how this oh "it's so responsive" will hold up 3 years down the line..... Especially after knowing now that apple deliberately slows down their former devices, no matter how powerful their hardware is.....
If it's not an iPad it's pretty much dead doubt that my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is great does everything I need it to plus free S-Pen vs having to buy it for the iPad Pro. Sure you can argue that the apps work better or whatever you want to argue but you don't have the one key thing that I require in a tablet that being control over how my homescreen looks and customization options that no iOS device has or will ever have. For anyone who wants to state that iPad is best I have this to say remember if you can that best is reletive and that's a fact you're just going to have to get used to.
Pyramid Head the Ipad Pro is the best tablet specs wise ignoring devices like the surface book, which is huge and not exactly a laptop. Battery on Ipad Pro is also meant to be great, 120hz is great, colors are beautiful, and it can also multitask.

I just gotta say - I thought tablets (especially iPads) were worthless and gimmicky... up until a few months back when I got issued an iPad pro 10.5 for medical school. IT IS SO FRICKIN COOL. It has the processing power for really robust anatomy apps, makes PDF markup a dream, functions as a decent scanner, and WOULD fully replace my computer other than the fact that I often need the two screens for lecture. As a former iPad skeptic, don't let the stupid commercials turn you away, this thing is for sure worth the price tag!
Is it just me or does everyone think Apple's prices for products is just too damn high... Hence, the case for the Apple pencil is almost 1/3 of the price... Usually this wouldn't be a big deal but considering it's only a case for the pen. It's so expensive...
