YOU Should Buy the iPad Pro 2020, And Here’s Why!

The iPad pro can be a divisive device you either fall into the heck yes this can replace my laptop camp or you probably think the rest of us are crazy there is no in-between in that sentiment none at all well today I'm gonna pull out all of the stops and try to convince you that you should buy an iPad pro so uh why should you let's find out what's up everyone I'm the everyday dad and if I can figure it out you can figure it out I personally I think the iPad pro is one of the best computers released in the last few years and when I say iPad pro I specifically mean the 11 inch and the 12

Point 9 inch models released in the last couple of years these have vastly reduced bezels and they they just look they have a futuristic design to them which I like being in the future now I'm personally a big fan of the 11 inch version and it's the one that I personally own and this thing actually it never leaves my side this thing this iPad is always with me and that's the first reason you should buy an iPad pro it's small it's portable it's not a problem to throw this into any bag and forget that it's there I mean you can

Totally forget that you even have it until you need to get some work done other laptops or bigger tablets can be great for travel but they'll require a little more care when transporting so you'll either have to get a bag with a laptop sleeve or some kind of specific laptop bag or it'll be heavy enough that you'll start to notice it not so here it's basically the size of a tablet of paper tablets used to be made of paper okay grandpa I'm not that old the second reason you should buy an iPad pro is kind of tied in with the first this device is

Powerful powerful whether you get a brand new model from 2020 or you get a refurbished last gen version pound for pound the iPad pro might be the strongest computer you can find especially at the price point in regular day-to-day tasks like email word processing web browsing this will be lightning fast and I've yet to have a slowdown or any kind of stutter while even having a huge amount of fari tabs open because some of us we just it's either that we forget to close the tabs or we just we like seeing how many tabs we can have open because it's

The least efficient thing you can do I'm not saying which side I fall on but not only does this excel in daily tasks but this new 120 Hertz display means that your gaming will be silky smooth how hard is it to buy a computer for this price that will run fortnight at 120 frames per second the cool kids still play fortnight right but where the power is really on display here for me is in video editing the iPad pro has no business at all being as good as it is in video editing this thing easily handles 6k files from my Netflix approved lumix camera but it's the

Smoothest video editing experience I've ever had there are all sorts of different apps that will give you basically 95% of the functionality that I get with my iMac pro and Final Cut Pro X very expensive pieces of software and equipment that is almost perfectly matched here the magical thing though what really the reason that this is so shocking and why I want to mention this is how fast this renders your file this is hands down the fastest video rendering computer I've ever seen like way faster than real time processing all in this reasonably priced small package

Like it's it's unreal like typing this script out and then saying it right now this unreal number three on the reasons to buy iPad pro since the new iOS and iPad OS updates you can actually pair a mouse and a keyboard to the iPad no wires needed I mean if you want them you can have them but they're not needed I've been using my magic mouse and magic keyboard well – magic keyboards more on the other one in just a second and that functionality really eliminates one of the major hurdles in using this as a primary productivity tool you've heard me say this several times but I really

Like the new style of cursor that Apple designed to make this system work it's in all fairness it does take a bit for your brain to reorient around it but once it does cool boy it's like a smart system disguised as a mouse cursor and to make it extra cute I mean and functional but it's kind of cute when it's in front of a brighter or darker background it will change to make itself more obvious so you don't lose it in the background combine this with reason for to buy the iPad external monitor support and you can legitimately turn this into an almost

Complete desktop experience the external display will only be in a four by three aspect ratio so the sides can be cropped off but once you start using it you do get kind of used to it I really enjoy plugging my iPad into a dock and being able to get actual email work done with a real keyboard or I can actually get some spreadsheets going or manage my calendar which is always – over full and I can do that with a mouse and a keyboard and this really is the reason to buy the iPad pro and not the iPad this is all made possible because of the USB C port instead of lightning

Lightning is fine if all you want to do is charge your tablet or your phone but it doesn't have that um to get a lot of these good accessories or really good transfer speeds if you're trying to transfer data into the iPad there are HDMI dongles and there are slower lightning sd-card dongles but with USB C you can use the same accessories that you use with your Mac and to great extent I would pay I would pay a pretty decent premium to get USB C on my iPhone for real I don't think they'll ever do it but it's something that I would very much like this one

Feature might be enough reason to buy the iPad on its own like productivity is if you're working professional productivity is the most important thing but wait there's more number five is another keyboard I Gary you're the everyday you're not the everyday dad anymore you're the everyday keyboard guy cuz you just can't shut up about keyboards the magic keyboard not the one that we already mentioned this thing is magic I mean it's actually magic and I do mean the magnetic magic keyboard attachment that attaches to the iPad itself this is pricey I'm not gonna lie

To you this is a pricey accessory but by simply laying the iPad on the back what about it took seconds to install you get a full gloriously wonderful typing experience and this gigantic trackpad giving you that mouse cursor support I talked about earlier without needing a mouse and this might sound crazy to people like how can a keyboard in a trackpad those things have existed on laptops since near the beginning of laptops existence so how why is this so good well it's the way it integrates and interacts with the iPad the biggest headache trying to use

The iPad as a productivity tool and use it as a content consumption device is I don't want to always have to touch the screen touching the screen can be imprecise and it just takes extra time to have to move up and down and that extra time like frustrations like that they will break a device nothing will make me stop using a device more than if I'm frustrated by combining quick mouse movements with a really nice keyboard that doesn't add much in the way of bulk I mean look at this that's all of it together that's a huge win you will gain a bit of a weight penalty like I said

This is a little bit bigger but guess what if you really want to save the weight and have a little bit more of a consumption experience you just pull it off in an instant you see how quick that was plus and another thing that I really like about this keyboard is it gives you an additional USB C for charging so you can have multiple things connected I'm telling you this in my mind is a required accessory for the iPad pro next up is the Apple pencil generation 2 sure I almost never use it I bought it just because it was like the thing you buy with the iPad but it's a gigantic

Benefit in the iPad pro line I know several graphic designers and photo editors that use the iPad pro now primarily they don't use a laptop they don't use a desktop anymore because the pencil is precise enough to get real design and editing work done now I never personally used a Wacom style drawing surface but have I bet those folks are getting pretty nervous right about now because this not only does it provide that drawing surface that editing surface but it provides way more functionality while letting me watch cat videos in very good definition

That's a win and seventh I think we're seven I honestly I lost count and this is the big one for me with all the working from home I've been doing the speakers on the iPad pro are really really good maybe they're not as good as what's on the Mac books but what this does is this saves my ears and my personal well-being during the Thirty teleconference meetings I'm on every week I used to dial in with my iPhone but now I dial in with the iPad and then I can set the speakers without having to worry that the awful iPhone speaker sound will give me a headache

No kidding like true story I was getting at least one series head good day and I was just getting worn out from all the phone calls using that speaker then I realized that because it's also iOS I could start dialing in with my iPad it's so good even with its site and plus even with its side mounted laptop dish mode here is a way better webcam than on the Mac books that's not saying much because those webcams are pretty bad but it is better if you've been doing a lot of meetings this feature is I mean it's for you like that it has saved my mental well-being a

Couple more big ones and the next one isn't really an iPad feature so much as it's an Apple ID feature that really just integrates and works remarkably well with how I use the iPad I like how easily my information syncs across all of my devices I do most of my personal calendar building and scheduling on the iPad and as soon as I've done it it's already on my back book and it's already on my iPhone there is no manual syncing required and as a Productivity tool this is insane because it meets that nexus of being more easy and more actually useful than my iPhone but being smaller and

More transportable than the MacBook I do kind of wish my spreadsheets instantly updated too but baby steps here baby steps yes I could use an app that instantly does that but I like the spreadsheets we got on here and since we're on the topic of productivity here's a here's a half reason there's a full suite of apps already built into this device for making presentations documents etc they might not be as powerful as the industry standard like Word and PowerPoint but they are completely functional and you don't have to pay extra to get them

Right out of the box this will work I think that's a pretty undervalued aspect of the iPad it just starts working as soon as you turn it on you don't have to like who drives me crazy about Windows machines as I have to then go buy Microsoft Office and that really leads me into the last reason you should buy one of these the last reason you should buy one of these bad boys and it's work it kind of ties all the other reasons together the versatility this iPad this little tablet right here this little thing that I carry with me everywhere can have many configurations you could

Use it only to watch awesome YouTube videos from Gary here just watch me or you could plug this into a monitor and hook it up to a keyboard and mouse and get legit video editing done or you could use the magic keyboard to treat it like a laptop that travels with you everywhere you can have all of these options in one device and I can't think of anything else at this price point yes the surface book and other tablets have some overlap but it's not the same thing I don't think there are other devices that can do the same at this price I'm

Continuously every day I use the iPad pro I'm more and more impressed it's basically joined at my hip and I take it with me everywhere it's quickly supplanted the MacBook Pro 13 as my quick around-the-house computer it's replaced my iPhone as my main email and scheduler and if I was a little more brazen and a little more risk-taker I bet this could totally replace my main video editing computer – I bet it could do it maybe I'll just have to sit down and dry it there is nothing else like this and you should absolutely buy one and you know what if you liked this

Video and you don't believe me about the power on display in the iPad pro 20/20 here's the link to my video showing just how crazy it is as a video editing computer click here to watch click click click click click click thanks for watching I hurt my elbow
