iPad Pro 9.7 review: Apple's best tablet, but it won't replace a laptop

Calling it a full-blown laptop replacement is a stretch, but Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is the best conventional tablet the company has made. It combines the power of the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the thin frame of the iPad Air 2. Additionally, it brings a vibrant, color-accurate screen and the best camera we've seen on an iPad to date. If you need a proper laptop, you should still buy one, but if all you want is a great tablet, the 9.7-inch Pro is the one to get.

Pros
  • Fantastic screen
  • Slim design with excellent build quality
  • Strong performance
  • Best iPad camera yet
Cons
  • iOS still isn't great at multitasking
  • Only has half the RAM of the larger model
  • Optional keyboard is cramped
