Think about it for one moment. Many of us are genuinely exciting by the new iPad Pro and in particular the way iOS 11 attempts to make it more flexible and ultimately more powerful.
This move by Apple makes perfect sense, but then I got to thinking about how I like to work and why I don’t own a MacBook. When I am writing, capturing images, researching etc etc, I am completely embedded in using a mouse.
My iMac gets 90% of my professional use and the more I consider it, the more I realise that an iPad Pro would still be a hindrance to getting things done as I do now.
In fact, I am prepared to say that the iPad Pro will falter the same way the iPads have and that we will continue to use laptops and desktops for some time to come.
A year after the iPad was released, I predicted that it would not grow and become the world beater many expected and I was right. The more I think about it, the more I realise that it is limited right out of the gate because of its design. It will never replace computers for some of us.
