Apple’s biggest iPad yet launches this week. The 12.9 inch iPad Pro will be available for order from Apple.com starting November 11th, and it should be available in retail stores later in the week.

Prices start at $799 for a WiFi-only model with 32GB of storage.

Apple will also offer a model with 128GB of storage and 4G LTE for $1079. Don’t need LTE? For $949 you’ll be able to grab a WiFi-only iPad Pro with 128GB of storage,

Other accessories including the $99 Apple Pencil and $169 Smart Keyboard also go on sale this week.

The iPad Pro has a 2732 x 2048 pixel display, an Apple A9X processor, four speakers, an 8MP camera, 802.11ac WiFi, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. It can do anything a smaller iPad can, but the 1.6 pound tablet has 4GB of RAM, which is twice as much as any other iOS device to date.

That should help with multitasking and with resource-intensive tasks: while Apple doesn’t position the iPad Pro as a tablet that can fully replace a laptop (the way some companies do), the company is pushing this as a “pro” tablet that you can use to get work done.

The Apple Pencil turns it into a graphics tablet, and the Smart Keyboard lets you use the iPad Pro as if it were a laptop… that just happens to run iOS instead of OS X.

  1. Always though Surface accessories are overprice, but of course Apple can do better here ;P
    Seriously, 169$ for a keyboard?!

  2. This is the first iPad that has been interesting to me in any serious way. This is mostly because of the larger size and the stylus. Pricing is very close to what I imagined it would be, so not an inexpensive device for sure.

      1. Surface Pro 4 has active cooling. I want fully sealed, no vents, no fans.

          1. That version does away with the fan but retains the vents because it still needs them.

          1. I’m not looking for a iPad Pro substitute. The reason the iPad Pro is interesting to me is because it is the first iOS product that doesn’t seem to completely suck.

          2. Fair enough.

            But the iPad Pro is more of a Surface substitute. lol

  3. I have never hated an Apple product more than the iPad Pro. What a stupid, ridiculous machine

      1. lol

        I don’t blindly hate all Apple products. I rocked a rMBP until a few months ago. And I’ve waited in lines for iPhones before haha

    1. 264ppi vs 267ppi on Surface Pro 4 so really nothing special.

      Ratio is different though but I quite like the Surface 3:2 vs the iPad 4:3 ratio. Esp. with 2 apps side by side a bit wider screen makes more sense IMHO. In any case better than any 16:9 or 16:10 screen.

      Also compare to a “real” laptop like XPS 13 with 3200×1800 or even some 4k laptops/2in1 devices.

  4. Apple should really move all their Ipads to 32gb minimum. They’ve always had premium pricing, but 16gb for a $499 ipad air 2 is crazy ridiculous.
