[Walter Soyka] "I carry both a Surface Pro 3 and an iPad Air 2 -- and I got the iPad after I got the SP3. I used my Surface as a tablet for a while, but it's pretty chunky and heavy in comparison with an iPad. As Oliver mentions, the Surface is a fantastic small laptop, but I certainly understand why people would prefer the iPad form factor."

I never stated an iPad will not work for some people. I have always stated for those iPad users who use Adobe's Creative Cloud some have opted for the Surface Pro. Please address what I am saying (no strawmen please). Many iPad users have also bought the Surface Pro. If the iPad Pro ran all the CC products the Apple users I am talking about would never have bought the Surface Pro. Why would they? Apple is giving MS money by not meeting their customers needs. Also some iMac users have stated once the price of the Surface Studio drops they will replace their iMac with a Surface Studio. That is my main point. I am not saying the iPad will not work for a college student writing term papers and surfing the internet nor have I ever suggested that. Let me put it to you like this. Do you think people with the MS Surface Studio are thinking "next year I am going to get an iMac"? Do you see my point?

For some people the iPad Pro will work OK. If you want a tablet that can run the Adobe CC software in desktop mode by simply connecting a keyboard the iPad may not be a good choice. Would you agree with that?
