That's because the latest Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar has just got its price absolutely slashed by Laptops Direct, who is now offering the system with a simply ginormous £590 knocked off the price for Black Friday. A couple of years later and Apple is keeping the same line, but with its new iPad Pro, it's not quite as easy to argue against such a statement.
Apple unveiled its newest iPad Pro models a few weeks ago, which come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch variations. Most folks won't have to worry about seeing the iPad bend like this, unless they're aiming to break it on goal, but perhaps its thinness is a contributing factor to potentially damaging models in the future.
The takeaway here is that you should probably be mindful of the way you treat a tablet that can run you almost a grand or more, depending on storage and display size. While, yes, the iPad Pro is hardly pocket-sized, it's very easy to imagine things getting bendy if someone were to accidentally sit on one. It looks like Microsoft's latest iPad Pro can be easily bent and mangled without exerting much effort, according to a new video from YouTube channel JerryRigEverything. Zack notes that the middle part of the frame, which sees a microphone hole on one side and the magnetic area on the other, is the weakest points of the tablet. Beware placing the Apple Pencil in a pocket as it might not survive.
The Smart Keyboard Folio adds a physical QWERTY keyboard, and a way to prop up your iPad Pro so that it is positioned in front of you, sitting on any desk just like a personal computer.
