I was getting worried that my iPad Air 2 was already outdated, but as it turns out, the iPad Pro 9.7 also has 2GB RAM and NOT 4GB RAM:

This a nice move by apps to bring the bigger iPad Pro's features to a smaller form factor, but with RAM staying the same, the iPad Air 2 just became one hell of a bargain.

But you need to consider:
the new warm display auto adjusting for drawing artists and heavy readers alike,
4 speakers ... 4! Stereoooooooo!
specific and simplistic and effective and directly supported keyboard by Apple. (1 level of support always beats 3rd party)
better pressure sensitivity
much faster cpu and imbedded graphics.

I don't own an iPad sold my Air 1 when it had value and street cred just before the Air 2 debuted. You can BET I'm buying this 9.7" iPad Pro!

None of that does anything for me, I always use headphones.
I am happy with the on screen keyboard.
The A8X still does a great job.

I don't believe the Pro 9.7 is worth the huge price difference, if I were upgrade I'd go straight to the iPad Pro 12.9 with 4GB RAM.

To be fair 4gb RAM was there for the 4 way split screen which I doubt people will do on a 9.7 ipad. For the rest 2gb is more than adequate

I would choose ipad pro over the ipad air 2 but j agree it is too expensive. It is a shame it didn't get the usb 3.0 charging

Yeah it is a shame about no 4GB RAM and USB3 lightning connector. Most users wouldn't care though typical iOS users use data (LTE/WiFi) for file transfer not necessarily USB/Lightning/MicroSD/SD card transfers.

Dost my eyes deceive me? a FRAK'N 128-bit CPU!!!??? ! Dayum!

I think, it has been discussed above, but I shall a bit contribute to the discussion:

- Can`t see any particularly new innovations which could make it worthwhile; the difference in functions is minor, but the price is significantly higher. Same as always with Apple;

- More like a rhetoric question: another renewal for the sake of renewal, but why?

PS Has always been a big fan of Apple
