I’ve been using the 3rd generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro as my main workhorse and plaything for over half a year now, and it’s been a joy (OK, with some niggles, but minor). With iPadOS, it’s even closer to a notebook PC than ever. Right now if you’re considering this powerful Apple tablet, you’re in for a treat. The 2nd generation 10.5-inch iPad Pro (Wi-Fi) with 256GB of storage is going for just MYR1,999. Yes, it’s even cheaper than the latest iPad Air 2019.
This is being offered by the official Apple Store on LazMall, so it isn’t a reseller deal or a grey import. The offer is limited to the Silver, Rose Gold and Gold colourways. If you’re a Space Grey kind of person, then you’re going have to fork out MYR3,499.
To compare, the 10.5-inch 2019 iPad Air 64GB (Wi-Fi) goes for MYR2,199.
As a tablet, the 2nd generation 10.5-inch iPad Pro is still as powerful as they come. It runs the Apple A10X Fusion chip and has the amazing 10.5-inch Retina display with TrueTone and 120Hz ProMotion technology. It supports the first-generation Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.
Unlike the latest iPad Pro (the one I’m using), the iPad Pro on offer still features TouchID with a physical Home button as well as a Lightning connector.
The iPad Pro’s quad-speaker is second to none, and it’s perfect for movies, music and games.
