Almost 24 hours with this new case on my 10.5 IPP and this is legit. Pros- Compared to the ASK, keyboard clicks feel great/HQ touch and sounds, ability to remove is great and I agree with AI, touchpad is silky smooth, accurate and intuitive (still have to learn all of the time saving gestures). Cons - Case is thick. Feels almost as thick as the old 12” PowerBook, which I loved. The texture of the case is a little slick so for those worrying about it picking anything up, I wouldn’t worry about it.
For me, this is a hit. I was able to get to spreadsheets and work immediately, which was a main reason why I couldn’t use the IPP as a primary device. This changes that for this first time. As someone who has been using an iPad and trying to make it work at work since day one, I think it finally has a chance. I can write notes and sketch with the pencil and also tackle some docs, spreadsheets and presentations with one device. The apps and multitasking now needs to catch up.
Anyone else think that releasing the mini and making the air 10.5 sets us up in the near future for a folding iPad Air that has the 10.5 screen size with a mini form factor? Been dreaming about that for a while.
For me the iPad mini 5 allows me to go back to the moleskine days of taking notes and sketching while also bringing along a fully functioning computer with me. I’ve been waiting for this for a while.
