The new keyboard is good. Screen size is good, without bulking the whole thing up.
I just wish it had a built in SD card reader. Otherwise, I'm generally happy.
I've been running a 'doze laptop for a while now. Windows still sucks.
Meanwhile, believe it or not, I am actually considering getting an iPad.
I don't actually *want* to choose an iPad, but similarly to how people use Windoze at work for critical applications, there are some audio apps from Allen & Heath that we are using at the church that are only available on iPad.
I also have one of those little keyboard folios that someone gave me whenb they discarded their broken iPad; I wonder if that would still work with the current version. When not using it for music I would want to use it as a remote terminal to one of my main systems. The problem is that they're so damn expensive.
Someone asked me about Wagyu beef. I told them it was the Apple computer of beef.

I've had a slew of them, and just sold a few.... Wish I had known you might want one.
I've slowed down on them. My kids don't really use them any more, having gone to phones. My wife is the main user. I still have for myself. I've got the big old iPad Pro that was given to me as a gift (but really needs more memory) and one that's got 128gb that I won in a contest.
As a generic surfing machine for those of us who now need reading glasses, it's pretty good. I've travelled with one and been able to use it for work email and the like, but I still miss a real keyboard for that sort of thing.
Like I said, I have a keyboard folio, so if the new ipads are still the same size and shape as the older ones, it'll esentially be a thin client most of the time. A browser, an SSH client, and an RDP client are all I use most of the time anyway.

You need reading glasses? What happened to your famous superhero-grade
I went from 20/15 to 20/20 in one eye and 20/30 in the other. I can still see pretty well overall, but in low light, I need the readers. When I first noticed there was an issue, I went to the doctor who said my vision was perfect - 20/20..... Sadly, that was diminished.
All right, so help me out here. I have in my possession a Logitech "Ultrathin keyboard folio i5" which according to their web site was designed to work with "iPad 2, iPad (3rd and 4th generation)". What size were those, and is there a current-generation iPad that is the same size and shape? I would like to use this accessory with it.
I have a reputation at work for being "Steve Jobs like" in presenting new and exciting ideas. Considering that I now have very little hair left, and often wear black shirts and jeans, I might as well complete the look. I've come to the realization that I need glasses, so when I have my first eye exam I'm going to order a pair of Lunor Classic Round frames. I checked them out on an eyewear site that superimposes glasses on your photo, and I liked the way it looked.
Needless to say, I will look even better in them than Jobs did, because I wear suspenders and I have a working pancreas.
