Apple's new iPad Pro models outperform MacBook Pro, benchmarks reveal

This means that Apple reworked the design and changed some of the layout when compared to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which the new tablet will replace.

It decides on the most elegant way to use applications on its devices, and then it enforces that solution by either strongly encouraging you to do it that way, or by removing the ability to do it some other way.

The new Surface Pro promises great productivity features thanks to the full Windows 10 OS, aiming to offer the power and functionality of a laptop with the portability of a tablet.

The new 10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro is now bigger, more powerful and fits perfectly in the segment, but it still fails to convince us to consider it a laptop substitute in 2017. And, most importantly, you will get access to the kind of file system that laptops use. On opening up the iPad Pro 10.5 inch, it is realized that the battery is held firm in the place with adhesive in comparison to the pull tabs seen in the iPad Pro 12.9-inch.

The iPad Pro 10.5 and the iPad Pro 2 12.9 were unveiled early this month. When it comes to single-core performance, the MacBook Pro emerged victorious, with both the 2016 and 2017 models beating all the iPad Pro models. The tablet has four stereo speakers, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB 3.0, NFC and a non-removable Li-Ion battery that is capable of running for as long as 10 hours.

The latest Surface Pro packs seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 (Kaby Lake), which should deliver a beastly performance without breaking a sweat. A small set of professionals who do not do much typing - like artists and illustrators - could probably get away with using an iPad Pro with a stylus as a stand-alone computer.

This led to the device failing to penetrate the minds of many users and once it did, Apple was already parading the iPad Pro. Some have found a way to use the accessory on it, but for those who can't be bothered, they will have to make do with the touchscreen.

Even with those limitations, it is one of our favorites due to the look and the protection that it provides to the Apple Pencil. The Apple Pencil is also available separately, at a $99 price point. Remember we are talking about the hardware spec on iPad Pro and not the software here. The Surface Pro has a better front camera for selfie lovers, while the rear cameras are neck and neck. RAM options are 4 GB, 8 GB and 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L. It is not surprising then that the Surface Pro Gen 5 is created to be a full-on laptop replacement.

Of course, while the new iPad Pros are excellent (and it's taking a substantial amount of discipline on my part to not rush out to my nearest Apple store and nab a 10.5-inch iPad Pro), there's always room for improvement when it comes to technology.
