    Cutting through anatomy, lots of body modeling. Can actually mark up body to simulate injuries. (Full Body Markup?)

    But then, it's the cost of a MacBook, basically.
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:49:54 PM

  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:51:14 PM
    So: no USB-C on this thing, btw
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:51:23 PM
    "IPad Pro enables tools and interactions that just haven't been possible before" Ive says in the video.

    iPad sales have been the one weak spot in Apple’s product line. Apple sold 10.9 million iPads in the June quarter, down 18 percent from the previous year. Analysts had expected it to sell 10.7 million tablets, according to a poll by Fortune. That marked the sixth consecutive decline for Apple's iPad line -- a concern for a company that's becoming more and more reliant on its smartphones.

  • Scott Stein 9/9/2015 5:51:41 PM
    One missing part of that Smart Keyboard I just realized: NO TRACKPAD. :(
  • Shara Tibken 9/9/2015 5:51:45 PM
    Consumers have been holding on to their tablets for longer and opting to purchase bigger-screen iPhones and Macs instead. Apple introduced its newest tablets -- the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3 -- in October, but analysts said their incremental changes, including faster processors, weren't enough to attract buyers. The company, which has long claimed iPad weakness is a "speed bump," is now counting on a partnership with IBM to increase iPad sales to business users.
