iPad Pro 2018 Review - Medical Student Edition


In this video I do a full comprehensive review of the iPad pro 12.9 inch giving the student perspective. Ive used the older iPad pro for medical school for about a year, and thought it might be useful to share my thoughts on the new iPad pro 2018 for students. This is the iPad flagship which will continue through into 2019 also. The iPad has become such an integral part of my note taking, and learning at university, which is why I am hoping that this video might be useful.
I also answer some pressing questions that students may have about the iPad, such as,

Which iPad should I get?
Which Size should I get?
Is the new iPad Pro 2018 worth it or get a laptop instead?

Thanks for watching !!! 🙂

    Hey Anas, thanks for the informative video and cool cinematic sequence! I was just wondering what storage size you would recommend as a medical student in order to meet the requirements of storing some core medical ebooks + lectures/ lecture notes through the years? Was thinking of getting the 64GB (1st year grad medic here so the struggle is real) BUT not sure if it's something that I would 'outgrow' in 2-3 years.

    Nu när jag vet att du är svensk kan jag ju passa på att fråga mina funderingar.
    Jag läser till syrra och är sjukt sugen på en iPad pro. Kan dock inte, likt alla andra, bestämma mig för vilken storlek. Har upptäckt att jag lär mig bäst praktiskt / visuellt och använder mig därför mycket av mind-maps, bilder och typ pilar. Vill med andra ord kunna kombinera bilder och text i samma anteckning.
    Räcker en 11-tummare för det? Eller behöver jag slå på stort och köpa 12,9? Oklart om detta är relevant för ditt svar men har sen tidigare en macbook air 13 tum och den första ipad air från 2013 9,7tum.
    Tack för en superbra video, absolut den bästa recensionen här på tuben!

    Thanks for the review I've been doing a lot of research on the iPad pro, and this video has helped me make a decision to get it instead of the MBP. I already have a working laptop, so it would be better to get the iPad pro instead and save up and get the MBP later on. And awesome intro!! And this is a really helpful video especially since you kind of also compared the older iPad pro as well!!

    Great review! Im thinking about maybe getting this but i am really stuck. Im about 15-16 and i have access to a computer. On one hand i think it will be great since i also draw and i can use it for fun, but i also dont know if i will get enough use of it? This review really focuses on university/college level and im wondering if you still think it will be useful at a lower academic level? I know this might be hard, but i think you have a really great insight on this 💛

    I think the lack of integration with a good referencing software really just breaks it down. As medical students we have to do three things on a computer: view and annotate lectures, watch videos and write articles and reports All of these tasks can be done with a regular iPad or an iPad mini which make the very expensive iPad Pro just not worth it. At the same price range, a Surface Pro will be much better value for money as it provides the full version of Windows with MS Office and Mendeley integration as well, not to mention being able to easily manage your pdf files and share things using a USB stick for example.

    Great great video. Was confused on which size to get for the iPad for schoolwork in medschool but after this video, I’m definitely going to get the 11 inch. Cheers

    This was an incredibly helpful review! Thank you so much for that! I‘m a Vetmed student from Germany, but I go to University in Budapest, Hungary and I’m currently in first semester. I noticed how much paper I have to use to take all of my notes. I just hate the way you have all of you notes everywhere and that you have to organize constantly what you’re taking with you and what you leave at home. That’s the main reason why I want to get an iPad. As i don’t have one i would go with the new iPad Pro, but I didn’t exactly now which size, so your video helped me a lot with that! I think I’ll get myself the smaller version but with the 256GB.
    Thanks again for the great video! Keep up the good work 👌🏼👌🏼

    I've watched a lot of reviews regarding the new iPad Pro and I must say this is one of the few reviews with less flowery word but full of practical use and real life application. Thank you. Hope you keep on reviewing such devices or different technologies with this kind of view point.
