I am not sure what the "Pro" means but it certainly doesn't mean for professionals. Unless I am mistaken, this new iPad is supposed to be a tool for creative professionals. I am a professional photographer/videographer and it is grossly inadequate. Not only can you not edit Raw files, at least I can't figure it out, but downloads using the new lightning to SD camera card is painfully slow and the features of the available apps are lacking in both features and power. Perhaps it would be a great tool for illustrators, although it is difficult to gage as the pencil at this point is hard to come buy, 4-5 week wait in my area. For everyone else it is just a larger iPad and nothing more. Microsoft has nothing to fear from this expensive toy.
