Apple’s new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro makes it easy to turn a tablet into a laptop. But it’s expensive, heavy, and more limited than you might expect. Still, if you want to convert an iPad into a laptop, it’s the best option available.

Will a smart folio keyboard and a magic mouse (second gen) do the same thing? Because I have a magic mouse and I don't really use a trackpad. Basically, is there anything different with the keyboard, other than the keyboard lights?

You’re forgetting the fact that you’re getting a ridiculously gorgeous screen at 120 Hz, and the IOS ecosystem. You can’t get that with surface.

I got my daughter a iPad Air with magic keyboard and pencil bc like you said: she loves my iPad Pro , and that’s all she wants. For school and everything. So I got the keyboard because it helps with the school stuff. Especially composition

unfortunately you cant fold the keyboard back so that you can use the ipad like a book. If i leave the keyboard at the desk, I now need a case for the ipad. I wish the keyboard could fold all the way back!

Have an older iPad pros with different keyboard (Apple,and Logitech), just don’t use any of them. Problem is app support. If I need a laptop I use my MacBook, if I’m doing really heavy duty things I use my loaded iMac Pro. Also let’s be real $300-350 for a keyboard - it’s just stupid - good looking , but not an optimal design

Since my iPad is pretty cracked, falling apart & has scratches on the back I'm trying to convince my dad to get me this! Because It's been my dream to play on keyboard. Edit: How much does the iPad in this video cost?

Thank you for the review. I’m going to take the plunge. I had the Brydge Pro+ and it is a fantastic keyboard with all those lovely function keys, but the rubber shims rip regularly and risk scratching the iPad or damaging the screen protector. Customer service is very nice to send replacements, but no thanks. I need to know my device is safe. I should be able to remove and use my device without fear of damaging it. Hope I do not regret the shift. I will miss my function keys.

Dieter! Been watching your reviews and listening to you since the Palm Pre days. It has been almost 12 years and I still miss Web OS. It was so ahead of its time, but at least Android and IOS stole all of it's greatness and essentially today those OS' are what WebOS was at one time.

Just got the iPad Pro with the Magic Keyboard today and I absolutely love it. It feels so much more like a MacBook than it does an iPad. In my opinion it is definitely worth the money.

the reason they did'nt include a function row of keys was because, since the keyboard makes the ipad "float" then it would be a pain to fumble for the row of keys that would be situated under the ipad. i have a 5th gen regular ipad and i have this bluetooth keyboard that i picked up at a yard sale. its realy good, except today, the caps lock function messed up and when i pressed it, it switched the language to russian! here is an example ершы шы еру учфьзду

Is it possible to have the ipad pro and magic keyboard infront of your monitor connected to your macbook pro and have the magic keyboard and trackpad replace the need for an external keyboard?

Why, in God's name, did Apple not include the function keys on the Magic Keyboard? huh/duh. I use a Brydge but hate the bluetooth connectivity and would like a smart-connect but not sure if $350 is worth it w/o the function keys like the Brydge has. Does Brydge have an iPad Pro 12.9 keyboard with smart-connect?

I just got mine and going to return it. I think if I could fully function without my MacBook I’d keep it, but I still need it and this case is more inconvenient then anything. I miss my the trifold case as it’s far more versatile

I just don't have the feeling of weather if buying an iPad Pro is worth it or not. Why? Well here's my point; If you need something for entertainment and education (sometimes for work) then it will definitely be your best shot. If you want something that is mostly for work, college education and everyday work, then an iMac, Macbook Air and Macbook Pro is the best bet since less accessories are required and options MAY increase. Overall I am NOT a Microsoft guy although I use them. The fact that I say this is because in terms of security, your personal info may be kept safe. Not only that, but also your laptop is less vulnerable overall from my perspective

I have been using iPad and Apple Pencil for one year. It's main purpose has become Notability. I import my textbooks as PDFs, and read them while highlighting. I also take notes on it as well. I use the traditional smart cover for my iPad for the protection it needs. Instead of printing any school materials out now, I just "print" it to notability, handwrite my answers, and then "print" it back to the computer for submission. Without Notability, it's really just a PApost device for me.

Really wish there was a function row but I do love the size, simplicity and sleekness of the design. Biggest issue for me is the angle versatility, however it is extremely stable. So glad I was able to opt for tap to click on the trackpad.
