Something peculiar happened the other day. I was typing on the smart keyboard with my 9.7 inch iPad Pro on my lap and it seemed a bit unstable. To solve this problem, I decided that I needed a flat stable surface on which to rest the iPad. Without thinking, I grabbed the nearest object that satisfied those criteria. Why is this worth sharing?
I finished my current task and when I sat back to think I noticed that the object I chose to rest my 9.7 iPad Pro on was my one-year old MacBook Pro.
At that moment, I realized there is something special about this device that makes me want to use it. Maybe it is the Smart Keyboard; maybe it is the awesome display; maybe it is iOS 9. Who knows? What I know is that the experience of using the iPad Pro is unlike any iPad experience before it. Despite the fact that some things take longer to accomplish on iOS and that I have a beautiful Apple 27’ Thunderbolt Display in my office, I find myself pulled to use this device for more of my daily tasks.
The iPad Pro Smart Keyboard Cover is generally stable when using it on your lap. In this instance, I was sitting in an awkward position not conducive to working with the iPad Pro on my lap. ↩
I have owned two 9.7 inch iPads before this one that I used occasionally for note taking during meetings and other miscellaneous tasks. ↩
If you test one, be sure to get the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard during your testing period. ↩
