    The company announced Wednesday that its beast of a tablet, dubbed the iPad Pro, will span a massive 12.9 inches, just a touch under the screen size of a 13-inch Macbook.

    "It's the most capable and powerful iPad we've ever created," Apple CEO Tim Cook said.

    The device will come with a decent storage upgrade and will start at $799 for the 32GB model. The 64GB model will cost $949, and the 128GB model with LTE connectivity will cost $1,079. All will come preloaded with iOS9 and have a 10-hour battery life.

    Graphics capabilities have increased 360 times since the original iPad was introduced in 2010, Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said. The latest iPad's display will contain 5.6 million pixels, more than a 15-inch Macbook Pro with Retina.

    "Your TV shows and movies are more cinematic, the games we play are more immersive and powerful," Schiller said. "This is the most advanced display we have ever built."

    Those who buy a new iPad will have the option to outfit it with several new accessories. The Smart Keyboard ($169) is both a case and external keyboard that connects to the iPad via a new technology called the "smart connector," rather than traditional Bluetooth. And Apple Pencil ($99) is a dedicated stylus meant for drawing and other fine movements.

    The iPad Pro will begin shipping in November and will be available in three colors: silver, gold and space gray.

    The iPad Pro weighs an extra 1/2 pound over the iPad Air. It is very significant when your carrying it around or taking it on business or personal trips. You might be all excited the first couple of days after you buy it and then you'll say fuck it I will bring my laptop which has a better OS. You'll probably say to yourself I thought the whole point of getting an iPad is carrying around a computer that weighs less even with compromises the Safari browser makes.

    I have a Note too, I barely use anything else. On this phone I can actually get work done by remote login, without a tablet. It's really the total all in one device, wait til you upgrade to the 4 or 5, it leaves the iphone and ipad in the dust.

    At that size I'd rather get a small laptop.
