Keep the ideas flowing. Cause we all know Apple is just taking ideas at this point. Billions will be milked before the next move. Oh I forgot to mention. That will require a charging redesign adaptor. The saga goes on...............

At this point only in general. We didn't ask for Apple pay and that was included in the 6 and 6 plus. Basically Apple chooses what makes their perfect notebook better.

Taking ideas from where? You must be confused with the likes of Samsung.

Without a touchscreen, this sucks... unfortunately. This is the form factor they should have introduced 2 years ago. -Long time user of a Macbook Air 13" and now a Surface Pro 3 user. The Surface is FAR more useful.

I agree with you. Im a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2-ich user - much more useful than the ipad and Im sure the Macbook Air. This Air looks pathetic - reminds me of 2002 !!!

Apple shouldn't have introduced this gimmick. The way Microsoft made the surface is the only hype about it but Apple doing it would just make this sound unreasonable just like the way Microsoft tried to push itself ahead with this. Why separate it? How is it a laptop if it needs the stand to hold it and if it's not built like a laptop? What's the point of touchscreen on computers? Why do I need a computer screen to rotate more than it needs to? My point is this breaks the fourth wall of laptop logic. Many companies build computers like Apple. I am fine the way I am, the reviews are enough to say how perfect I am.

"Mind blown" "best laptop ever made." "Takes battery to a whole new places it's never been."

@ Samsung Galaxy Note Pro: Do you realize that an IPad can do much more than your Samsung and a MacBook will make the Galaxy look silly. I'm talking out of experience. That Galaxy will look like device from the Palm Pilot days if you compare it to an Apple device.. I'm serious... You should really get a demo.

@TechnoGeek : Ive had every single iPad ever made and using Apple products for 14 years. As a designer, artist and Apple technician I tell you that the iPad is very limited. Yes it has more APPS and thats about it. The 12.2-inch Galaxy Note Pro has much much more - stereo speakers, additional MicroSD card slot for more memory, bigger screen, S-Pen (Wacom technology - best stylus ever used), Plug into USB3 port on my mac and just transfer files - no syncing and iTunes needed, Dual USB flash stick support, remote to Samsung TV's, Customisable OS, etc. Ive had the iPad and the Styluses you get are pathetic - Yes ive had the Bamboo, Aronis, Bluetooth ones you name it, Ive had them. There is NO BETTER stylus than the S-Pen. You should give the Pro a test. Im not saying the iPad is not good BUT compared to the Note pro believe me it doesnt match.

@TechnoGeek : I forgot to mention. The GNP battery life out lasts the iPad by far yet it has a bigger screen. Ive watched a full HD movie and it only uses 3% battery life, with full screen brightness, wireless enabled and connected, bluetooth enabled and LTE enabled. Try watching a bluray movie on your iPad and tell me how much battery life it sucks up. Oh and it also syncs perfectly with iCloud and all its services. Add NOVA LAUNCHER and it even resembles the iPad look. And the stylus fits right into the tablet - so you always have it with you, no need to worry where you left it.

the Galaxy tab may look like it does everything but when jailbroken, that's saying a lot for whatever iPads can really do. As far as effect go and functionality, it has parallax, transparency on home screen, web, handoff to transfer apps wherever, it can be used as a second monitor for a Mac, Apple Pay for the newest quickest payment method ever done, thinnest and less reflecting tablet ever done on a full sized tablet, dual mics, even more power efficient than before so mine lasts a bit over 2 days on a single charge no matter what I do with it, use home kit accessories that really helped me cut my electric bill, simple sluggish free performance, and best of all, use the remote app on my Apple TV that moves more than any remote that comes with it or the roku.

@iPad Air 2 : You gotta be kidding me !!! Jailbroken ??? You need to jailbreak the iPad to get functionality - what a joke !!! Parallax on home screen ?? What are you a novelty nerd? - you call THIS a feature? Its has WEB?? WTF are you talking about - every bluddy device on the planet has "WEB", Apple Pay ?? You joking right - wow see mummy I can pay with my iPad - LOLOLOL. Handoff?? you might have meant HANDJOB - buwakakakakaka. If you are REALLY comparing all these as FEATURES - i rest my case. What you gonna say next ? "Oh you can get a magnetic case", or "Its soooo thin" - im outta here. Anyone else got something to compare without mentioning the work JAILBREAK?

You're the main event of kidding. All these features of yours eat up the gb memory and mess up the performance of how an operating system should work in the first place. You need security to compete against a real starter. Nice try, what a gimmick it must suck to be in year after year. Pen for a tablet. Are you a paid fanboy or what? You call this owning competition? What are you proving here or trying to prove? Come on you don't even see how Apple pay immediately improved across stores, what did the attempting nfc of yours ever do better? You gullible fool. Wow daddie look, plastic junk that has all these features that slow down on bogging performance. LAWLAWLAWLAWLAW. Tap together??? more like crap together making out devices. HWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You compare what Samsung thought matters when they don't think on the outside. Nuff said about their existance. Keep doing what serves them best. "Oh look, they'll love us just because we made a case to stand" and "look we increased screen size again up to 20' inches". You're out back to their world instead of this real one you can't take, a genius. Who else wants to fall for your wannabe marketing myth?

This article only mentions the design thereby it's only the beginning of the new products. Iphone 6 came out and didn't just looked bigger. You'll get more when more leaks comes out.
