    A couple things I wish I mentioned in this video: - at $599, the iPad Air 2020 is $100 more expensive than its predecessor - you can obviously use it as a simple tablet and not a "computer", but then... you might as well get the iPad 8th gen for $329, it's a fine tablet. - The Logitech Folio Touch is $159 compared to the Magic Keyboard for $299 - lttstore.com Riley

    ISOHaven21 day ago

    @Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas Single core doesn't matter and it is not slower in multi core. It's faster in multi core and in graphics. I'll say it a second time in a different way for you....My iPad Pro Gen4 stomps my iPhone 12 Pro. Plus the 120Hz refresh really blows the A14 to the moon. There's a reason the base A14 STILL doesn't have 120.

  5. Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

    Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas21 day ago

    @ISOHaven The A12Z doesn't stomp the A14, the A14 has better single core performance and is about 10% slower on multi-core and slightly faster in graphics. Obviously, the Pro has a better display, better speakers, better mics, better cameras, lidar, but still. The iPad Pro is at a weird place right now. The Pro will become attractive again when they update it in ~March with an M1 with a different name (A14X).

    Hey guys a lot of you maybe already heard the story of KoolKing Logan. He is an awsome kid who just beat cancer and his dream is to become a youtuber. He really makes quality content yesterday alone he got 50k new subscriber as the internet is banding together to help him out. The only thing he needs is a proper setup. Maybe LTT could help out there and hook him up with proper equipment. It would be nice if this post could get some traction so the right people read this.

    What I love about iPads is that they cost as much as a real laptop, but can't do the things real working people need to do. So they're perfect for children, students, housewives, and seniors who want a big screen iPhone...lol

    I think apple have a very specific target for this device. in my opinion, there is no better alternative to the iPad Air + magic keyboard for students. the combo offers an incredibly powerful and versatile device for a lower price. compare it to the MacBook Air ( the most popular device for this audience), it does everything the MacBook does, plus it has a touchscreen. and the App Store. and its lighter. and its cheaper. and its smaller. and its easier to use. and it works better with your iPhone if you have one. its not quite as beefy but its more than powerful enough for multitasking in word and safari. if you go to school/college/uni and you need a laptop for taking notes and getting shiz done - get an iPad!!!!

    I’m a developer and the iPad cannot replace my laptop. Let me boot up VS Code and Netbeans and then we’ll be in business. Also I’m not hating. I have an iPad Pro because they’re awesome. At this point I guess it would be up to the developers of the coding software I speak of to develop a version for iPadOS.

    At least both the 2018 and 2020 models are easy to repair and expand storage.



    I'd think it makes the most sense to do something like this if you expect to frequently be using the iPad in "detached" mode. Frankly the two-in-one designs are a poor substitute for doing stuff like reading PDFs; the iPad without attachments is better in that case.

    These kids are so fucking dumb, the Ipad itself is excellent. As a replacement for a latpop for someone who only browses the web, answers emails and watches movies on it, it's perfect and far better than anything else on the market. Low key getting an equivalent quality display would cost you a grand. Anti-Apple resentment is dumb. Just because the device doesn't fit your needs (for most here it's gaming), does not mean the device is bad in any way. Also if you're smart you could just use steam link to play games on your Ipad assuming you have decent internet. I do CS work so I can't use a locked system, but if I were a business man or a lawyer, I would 100 percent use something like this.

    My Apple Air 2 still doing the job for me. Will wait until Apple gets a clue and puts the standards based USB4 with all options on into Apple products. The USB4 Specification complements and builds upon the existing USB 3.2 and 2.0 architectures. Based on the Thunderbolt™ protocol specification contributed by the Intel Corporation, USB4 doubles the maximum aggregate bandwidth of USB and enables multiple simultaneous data and display protocols. USB Implementers Forum, Inc. is a non-profit corporation founded by the group of companies that developed the Universal Serial Bus specification. The USB-IF was formed to provide a support organization and forum for the advancement and adoption of Universal Serial Bus technology. The Forum facilitates the development of high-quality compatible USB peripherals (devices), and promotes the benefits of USB and the quality of products that have passed compliance testing. Some of the many activities that the USB-IF supports include:

    Idk this, to me, looks like a good buy! Using my old iPad 2 right now and it’s kinda beat up. This looks like a great upgrade for 600$... I mean 256 gigs would be nice too but I’m at 32gb right now so anything more than that is just gravy and I believe the iPad I’m on now was 800$. I just prefer them over laptops for hanging out at my house watching/editing videos, talking to friends, or playing degenerate phone games. I just couldn’t imagine lugging around a laptop no matter how thin to watch videos when I’m trying to relax, iPads feel... amazing
