You know there are some products that you need, some products that you think you need but don’t actually do, and there are some products that you absolutely don’t need at all but you absolutely want to have it. iPad Pro 2018 falls in the 3rd category. Priced at Rs. 245000, this tablet from Apple is pricier than two ultrabooks combined. So, naturally we question, is it worth it?
iPad Pro is a testament to Apple’s design. It looks gorgeous on the outside and performs similarly on the inside. The flat sides take us back to the days of iPhone 5 and 5s but it still looks modern and the near edge to edge display makes it look unlike anything on the market. If you are someone who wants the best of the best for anything you buy and have the dough to spend on these kinds of products, we don’t have anything bad about the iPad Pro to say to you.

But, what is the use of an overpriced tablet that bends like paper to most of the general public? We don’t know. For me, as I am not a gamer, spending Rs. 245000 on a laptop for my work that mostly includes email and editing documents is already ridiculous. Spending Rs. 245000 on a tablet (the pen and keyboard cost extra) just because it looks good is just bonkers.
iPad is a cool piece of technology. There’s no doubt about it. It is powerful too, as evident from the videos of other YouTubers editing their videos on it. However, for my Rs. 2,45,000, I would rather buy a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, a Dell XPS 13, a kindle and give the remaining 10K to a charity.
