    iPad Pro can only advance with Mouse support, period.

    it's not a laptop until it has a proper filesystem and supports a tracking device. If Apple only added these two features it would become extremely interesting because it's actually an awesome machine. Beyond me why they don't.

    On the other side of the fence, windows convertibles are excellent laptops but they suck as tablets.

    Having a real 2 in 1 machine remains unfortunately a dream. What drives me crazy is that it would be absolutely possible from the technical point of view. Maybe they just prefer that we buy two separate devices...
