    Hmm. Our readers don't seem that impressed with the Pro. More than half of respondents not interested.

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:49:27 PM

    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:49:46 PM
    Smart keyboard is $169.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:50:16 PM
    Jessica, how do these prices compare to the Surface? $799 for iPad, $169 for keyboard, $99 for pencil. You're over $1,000 here.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:51:08 PM
    That's a decent price for what you get. Still, as the name imples, it's a high-end niche product. No way does it turn around the fading demand for tablets. But it'll deliver higher margins, letting Apple soak up the demand at the high end where it can make real money. Apple will let Samsung, Amazon, LG etc have the bottom of the market, just as it has done with phones.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:51:09 PM
    Yep...this just might work.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:51:17 PM

    Power of iPad Pro

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:51:52 PM
    Hiawatha, you don't think this thing is too pricey?
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:52:03 PM
    No, I don't. It's going to grab the top of the market.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:53:08 PM
    Surface 3 starts at $499, Surface Pro 3 $799.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:53:21 PM
    The iPad Pro seems just like the Surface Pro 3: stylus, split screen, comparable price.
    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 5:53:33 PM
    No they won't sell tons of them, but they're positioning themselves for profit more than for market share.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 5:53:41 PM
    Keyboard $129, stylus $49.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 5:53:55 PM
    If iPad Pro was available last year when I bought my Surface Pro 3, it would have made my decision much harder.
