Weekly poll results: Apple iPad Pro gets lukewarm reception

The Apple iPad Pro didn’t have it easy all week, taking hits from the majority of our readers. It’s been a while since a “Hot or not” poll of ours turned out not in favor.

The iPad Pro gathered a total of 37% of upvotes – less than 2 out of 5 people hit the thumbs up. Apparently, the productivity benefits of the large screen failed to entice most of you. There’s also the matter of the Pencil that needs to be recharged every now and then, and the Smart Keyboard that can only stay in this one position.

And that’s before getting to the less than affordable price tag, which certainly helped steer you to the downvote side. The additional $270 that the accessories will set you back aren’t particularly hot either, even if their currently limited availability might lead you to believe otherwise.

In all fairness the 12.9-inch Apple tablet is not exactly a mainstream device, so a widespread appeal was never part of its game plan. And certainly 37% of people aren’t designers and on-the-go video editors, so the iPad Pro still manages to speak outside of its target audience.
