When went to Al Khobar, last weekend, I took a quick trip to Virgin Megastore to check if they already have the new iPad Pro, and there it was the big a$$ iPad is on display with the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4. Even though it lies with its iPad cousin, its enormous size will surely attracts you.
The iPad Pro feels very light for its size, I mean for its size, it feels a lot lighter than our iPad 2. Just to give you an idea how large the iPad Pro is, it’s almost the same size if you put two iPads side-by-side in portrait mode. Even with its large screen, the icons are still in 4×5 arrangement, which gives them a lot of space in between.
With out the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, I did not feel using the device for long, so I just tested the responsiveness and see how the audio reacts when you change from portrait to landscape. Using the iPad Pro gives that feeling that you’re just using a big screen iPad, which is true but because of its large screen, you can do a lot of things that you cannot do with your regular-sized iPad.
The price of the iPad Pro at Virgin Megastore are as follows;
32 GB Wifi only – SAR 3,199
128 GB Wifi only – SAR 3,799
128 GB Wifi + cellular – SAR 4,299
When I asked if they have the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, the Rep told me that there is a supply constraints and it will need at least 1 month before they become available in their store.
