I have a 12.9 inch pro incoming.  I simply bought the recommended (by The Wirecutter) third party folio case for it, but I know I'll want to get a keyboard for it (my intention is to replace my MBP with the iPad Pro).  Does anybody who has one of these have a keyboard recommendation?  My current iPad is the first generation pro, and I hate the feel of the Apple Keyboard cover for it, and ended up using the Belkin QODE I used with my previous Air 2.

I agree with Shelly. I have the Apple keyboard folio on my current gen 11” IPad and it is certainly better than the previous one. As much as I want it to be a laptop replacement, it just is not there yet. Not convinced anymore that it will ever be there as a true laptop replacement for those who actually use their laptop to do work.

I use Logitech K380 Bluetooth keyboards ($30 or less) for our office iPads when a lot of typing needs to be done. The Apple Wireless Keyboard works too, but it is obviously very expensive.

We tried the Zagg keyboard covers a few years ago as well as the Logitech Slim Folio... it really depends on the user.

That new trackpad cover looks real nice and works with the prior gen pros. Hmmm... want it, but not sure if I want to fork over $300 for it.

That is pricey, but when my keyboard folio bites it I will likely get the magic keyboard, because magic. (Typed on my keyboard folio).

Well frick, as someone with a less-than-a-year-old Air, that kinda stinks. I don't have much to complain about with the current model that I do have but more storage is MOAR better and I am not a huge fan of the keyboard. I've already had one key go sticky which thankfully some compressed air fixed, but the feel of it is far from ideal.

Do we care about new Apple products in days like these? If so, the new iPad Pro looks pretty nice. Merging continues. 

Assuming I survive this (as an immunosepressed individual, but one who worked in a BSL3 and had a CDC license, so I have a leg up on most), I plan on getting that new iPad Pro 12.9 with the keyboard.
