Pro: Killer Display
Apple's iPad has featured a 9.7-inch display from day one. The iPad Pro stretches that to 12.9 inches. Moreover, the display offers a resolution of 2732 x 2048 pixels, making for 264 pixels-per-inch. That translates to more than 5.2 million pixels packed into the LCD. As always, the display is resistant to fingerprints and includes an anti-reflective coating. The surface area is quite large, and provides a compelling canvas for your charts, graphics, and presentations.

Re: Did it hit the sweet spot?
Agreed on the price issue - this is one expensive tablet, and the accessories are also pricey. Is it worth all the extra cost when you could just get a smaller iPad with longer battery life? I'm not sure. I think that depends on the preferences and profession of the person buying it.

I think you make a good point that this is more of a companion device than a replacement. It seems like a great tool for some mobile employees, but I can't see myself running out to grab an iPad Pro to replace my MacBook or Surface.
