One of the most challenging things to decide on as someone who likes to keep up-to-date with their tech is whether one gadget is better than another – which is just the conundrum we're discussing in the iMore forums.

Is it worth it to sell a barely-used Surface Pro 4 to pick up an iPad Pro 10.5? What do you think?

Hey guys and ladies I got a Surface Pro 4 (I5 Core/8GB of RAM/256GB of storage) with the type cover for my birthday 4 months ago in February and I really haven't used it as much as I thought I would. I have only used the Pro 4 about 20 times in the last 4 months and at the moment it is just sitting on my table haven't used it in just over 3 weeks ago. To be honest compared to my iPad Air...


iPad 10.5 is a significant upgrade to iPad Air 2. In fact I own the original 12.9 and the 10.5 flies compared to it. I am going to sell the 12.9 to try and make up for some of the money spent on the 10.5. I love this thing!!!


If you purchased the SP4 to play games, you got the wrong device. Its a computer for doing serious work. I don't know enough about iPads yet, but I am going to guess there is one that will fit your needs better than the SP4. I'm sure others will chime in and stear you in the right direction. Good luck!
