The iPad Pro is a Great Alternative to a Regular Computer

Whenever someone asks me for advice about buying a new computer, I ask them what they're going to use it for and often suggest an alternative they didn't expect: getting an iPad Pro instead of a "standard" laptop or desktop computer. Even though many people agree that an iPad makes a great device for tasks like watching YouTube videos or casually browsing the web, not too many see it as a device you can use to get "serious work" done.

I used to think that way too, but since then the iPad Pro has become the primary computer I use at home, whether I need to get some work done or just relax and watch some videos. I still have a Mac desktop and a small Windows netbook, but I use my iPad a lot more than before.

There's never been a better time to get an iPad Pro. If you look around on Amazon, there are plenty of certified refurbished 10.5" and 12.9" 2017 models being sold at affordable price. Both of them support WiFi and cellular connectivity, ensuring that you'll have access to the Internet no matter where you are. Also, both iPad models have a fast CPU, high-quality display and excellent cameras to take photos or use your favorite video chat app, whether you're holding a virtual business meeting or just interacting with friends on social media.

Even though some people might be apprehensive about buying a refurbished device on Amazon, there is nothing to worry about. Refurbished iPads have been inspected by professionals to ensure that every component works perfectly. For added peace of mind, there's a 90-day warranty, which allows you to ensure that your device is free of defects when you get it.

The iPad Pro is a very powerful and versatile device in its own right, but if you want to take full advantage of its functionality, there are several accessories you can pair it with. For example, you can get a keyboard that makes typing large amounts of text a lot more convenient. This isn't strictly mandatory, as it's an excellent device right out of the box. If the computer you're currently using is getting old and too slow for your tastes, getting a refurbished iPad Pro might be a great alternative to upgrading a PC that is nearing the end of its useful life.

If you're used to doing all your work-related tasks on a PC or Mac, transitioning to an iOS device may seem like a bit of a challenge. Howeever, chances are high the move will be smoother than you would have imagined at first. All you need to do is take some time to research and find apps that do what you want to. A majority of software developers have now put out an iOS version of their programs, as a growing number of people are using tablets to do a wide range of tasks. Whether you're looking for an app that lets you edit photos, write documents, create web pages, do accounting tasks or anything else you would have imagined, it's there in the app store.

Many apps let you sync data with a regular PC. You can also use cloud-based services like Google Docs to ensure that you always have access to your important data. Finally, there are even solutions to remotely control your desktop PC from your iPad, just like if you were sitting in front of it. This great versatility explains why a large number of freelancers and home business owners are now using an iPad pro as their primary computing device.

Even if you don't really intend to switch to using your iPad for work, the iPad Pro makes a very good casual use device too. Both versions are great if you want to watch movies or TV series, play your favorite games, check up on the news or stay in touch with friends and family on your favorite social networks. If you get an iPad Pro today, you might even choose to replace your main computer with it in a few years. As there are great deals on refurbished models going on right now, there's never been a more perfect time to get yours.
