There is no doubt that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is Apple’s most capable tablet to date. Featuring a 10.5-inch Retina Display with an astounding 120Hz refresh rate, a powerful A10X chip and sleek design, the Cupertino-based tech giant’s flagship tablet is not to be trifled with. As with other Apple devices, however, its powerful performance and its excellent capabilities come at a price, with the base level variant starting at $649.
Of course, the $649 price only corresponds to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro itself, according to a Trusted Reviews report. For users that would be utilizing the device as a productivity machine, the Apple Pencil ($99) and the Smart Keyboard ($159) are essential, and each of these accessories compounds the flagship tablet’s price. Thus, users who would like to use the 10.5-inch iPad Pro as a laptop alternative would need to invest almost $900 to get a fully decked device. For the working man, of course, such a price is not a joke.
