If convinces you an idea of the new iPad Pro 9.7 “but discourages you the same device, we have an alternative to Apple’s tablet.

During the conference, the words were spoken, that the iPad Pro is the best alternative for PCs – both the kind-hearted blaszaków and laptops. This is a controversial thesis, especially that fell in the context of the launch device equipped with a 9.7-inch screen and having a basic configuration of 32 GB. Given the price of such a model, adding to the cost of accessories, on which the whole magnificence of the iPad Pro, Apple seems to be a little too much attracted by its own tablet. Look at the prices.  The basic configuration of the iPad Pro will cost nearly 3 thousand. gold, and adding a physical keyboard, end up at the expense of up to PLN 3700, where the device itself we will offer 32 GB of built-in memory. By purchasing this type of equipment you would like to have a model that is enough for 2-3 years of operation, so you have to necessarily invest in a larger variant of memory. If you would like to invest in the most bountiful set, the total cost would amount to nearly 6 thousand. respectively. In such a price you can find some equivalent based on Windows 10 or Android?

Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is the first model that comes to mind. Of course, this is not equivalent, which would replace all the features of the iPad Pro on a scale of 1: 1, but it’s an on similar price will have much more to offer. For 4999 the amount of gold you get a model with a 128 GB SSD, Intel Core i5 and 4 GB of memory. Such a variant of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tested personally and practical use tablet behaved like a computer.

First of all, the device has a richer set of interfaces, including USB 3.0, microSD card reader and Mini Display Port output. In most of the time so we can do without additional adapters. In addition, the kit devices in Microsoft’s Surface Pen stylus, which recognizes up to 1024 pressure points, and in addition among the accessories we find physical keyboard with trackpad and backlit. These last two will not experience the iPad Keyboard Pro, even though it is more expensive.

hard for me clearly now show which of these two models would be more efficient, butusing the MS Surface Pro 4 could afford the submission and render the film, firing desktop applications and multitasking composed of more than two applications that współdzieliłyby area of the screen. This also seems to be a suitable competitor to display the iPad Pro (12.3-inch, 2,736 to 1,824 pixels). Apple wins only technology True Tone Display.

Microsoft Surface 3

 slightly smaller, because equipped with a 10.8-inch screen, the Microsoft Surface 3, which isadequate to the size of a lower price – 2599 dollars. If this amount is a device equipped with a 64 GB SSD with 2 GB of memory and an Intel Atom Z8700-X7. This is a good alternative for those in need ultra mobile PC – quiet, not too heavy and having a physical keyboard.

Lenovo Ideapad MIIX 700

Stronger than Surface’a 3 proposal is the Lenovo IdeaPad MIIX 700 – test of the device showed that the mounted here Intel Core m5-6Y54 gives a lot of freedom in their daily work. No problem we use the office suite, web browser, and will work successfully photographs in the graphics program. The device has at this large memory. The price of approx. 5000 gold model is obtained not only from the said processor, but also SSD with capacity. 256 GB. For this there is 8 GB of memory.

The kit can also find a full-size keyboard with trackpad physical. The test proved to be really good – allow for comfortable typing texts and could not feel the passage of a typical laptop keyboard. In addition, the model has 12-inch screen working depending on the variant in FHD resolution or higher (2160 by 1440 pixel image). Of course, the model is larger than the iPad Pro 9.7, but it also has a beautiful casing and is silent during operation.

Google Pixel C

Google Pixel C not yet wandered into the Polish market, but if you are here you will be faithful equivalent of the iPad Pro 9.7 “running at the same time based on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The tablet has a 10.2-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 by 1800 pixels, and manufacturer promises that the backlight will achieve power equal to 500 nits, which is as much as the iPad Pro.

in addition, the device is based on the Nvidia Tergra X1, which is a 64-bit unit, which not only do well games available in the store Google, but will also ensure smooth operation of the system. adding to 3 GB of memory and internal disk capacity of 32 GB or 64, we get a very attractive alternative.in particular, the device is designed in this way, to get along with a dedicated keyboard allow all sorts of settings – allowing for comfortable work or play. dedicated tablet from the keyboard has a standard set of keys and is devoid of the trackpad, but it looks very good.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Looking for alternatives among Android tablets difficult encounter model well suited for multitasking. Two models that come to my mind is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet. Both, however, they were created at a time when tabletom was not attributed to productivity, and therefore are not as efficient and do not offer as many opportunities as the iPad Pro is the best hybrids with Windows. However, it is distinguished from Samsung, because the screen has similar proportions to the display of the iPad Pro 9.7 “and find among the accessories pouch with the keyboard.

Samsung also took care of the ability to run two applications juxtaposed thanks so in theory we can work on documents and simultaneously browse the internet, but not every application can be run in this mode. in addition, the model offers good performance, but it seems to me that not so much as that mounted on the iPad Pro unit A9X. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a much cheaper, and if you leveled up by adding it to the case of the keyboard, all of us will be around 2.5 thousand. PLN.

The choice is difficult

It seems that Apple has entered the niche market – the proposed products do not constitute a complete replacement for all of Apple’s technology, but compensate for it or lower the price, or richer specification.
