The dock that makes the iPad an iMac

We’ve seen the iPad evolve into something more computer-like over the years. But does it fit in the sort of place the Kensington StudioDock puts it in?

    First time watching this channel. Can't comment much about content because I haven't been a Mac user in 15 years. My main point would be that this doesn't feel like a LMG video. Maybe Linus should hire a heckler.

    It's kinda a stupid product designed to make the idea of the ipad being a computer a good idea and finding a solution to a problem that could be solved for 1/3 the price.

    Im waiting since 2013 for the ipad to become a real computer... it’s so frustrating seeing this baby steps year over year over year.. i really hope to see macOS or linux or even windows on an iPad! Architecture isn’t a problem anymore so apple pleas give us a better version of the surface!

    Hi, just curios and for the sake of the GEEKNESS...can you demo how to run macOS Big Sur on the 12.9 x 16GB x 1TB ipad Pro since it uses the M1 chip anyway? Would it beat MacBook Air for performance, battery life and also best mobility...

    I liked the dock till I saw the price. It’s like every accessory for the iPad is oh you want a Mac or laptop here spend Mac or laptop money 😐 over 300 dollars to dock the iPad and make it like a Mac and when you’re not using it but want a laptop here a 300 dollar keyboard case why can’t we get something like this dock for under 100 bucks or 150 for something similar quality these prices are outrageous. I love the iPad Pro but why do I need to sell a kidney to get a nice iPad setup 😒

    If Linus really wanted an 'Apple channel' it would be x 1000 better than this rubbish effort. Allow me to explain what is actually going on here: Linus Sebastian's earrings, his squeaky voice, the socks and sandals, his nervous butter-fingers, his choice of spouse and his constant insistence on shoving his 'happily married' home-life in our faces and now this channel of internalised hatred are all but confirmation to me of just how deeply confused a man the really is. Do I really need to spell it out?

    Another group: My artist little sister who likes the simplicity, smoothness, and appeal of Apple products, and already has the Apple watch, iPhone XR, AirPods, and iPad Pro. Anyone who *already* has expensive Apple products and is looking to do art on a pad isn't going to buy a whole PC setup to do art. Especially when buying this dock can sit well with a cheap lightweight/small desk (bamboo top and metal stands that don't LOOK cheap, but is). Another group this hints at, is, of course, poor people financing Apple products to look and feel better about themselves. Lastly, with increasing amounts of kids living at home into late adult-hood, this allows a small cheap desk setup that lets you save up to make your room into an apartment pad, minus the expensive rent and landlords that couldn't give a damn less about your personal situation.

    why are apple product accessories so expensive? I am here from LTT and expected an angry rant about why this product is stupid, which is what we would get from Linus if he had the time to review half baked apple accessories. I guess this channel isn't really aimed at LTT's main viewer base. Is the tone of all the content here gonna be skewed to ignore obvious problems in products caused by the apple ecosystem or is this a one off?

    As a long time iPad Pro user that I use everyday professionally I can see absolutely not use for this thing. The iPad (even the 12.9 that I have) isn’t big enough to use as your main desktop screen plus, and I can’t stress this enough, with your iPad docked like this you less the use of the pencil. My iPad stays on the desk, so I can write on it when I need to, and is connected to a big external monitor for keyboard and mouse use. Can wait for Apple to let us have a full screen image on an external monitor. Then the iPad would definitely become my main device.

    I think the os is very obstructing. You can’t do a backup over a pc (cloud services are slooow over here + rarely any connection at all) and move data from connected smartphone via cable (= data management 💩) (also why pay extra for a device if all data has to be accessed through a cloud. In my prime I had 4 cloud accounts for all the different companies monopolizing their services to their cloud... 🤮Now I use my iPad Pro 90% for Netflix)

    I used to be a massive Apple fan... until I grew up and learned that I like tinkering too much and grew to loathe them as much as I despise Microsoft. BUT, I could see someone like my mom using a device like this with her iPad. She's what I would call a "casual user" that just likes to play her word games, check messages from time to time, write a few notes, and that's about it. If the actual docking process were a little smoother, I could see her actually using this as a night time dock instead to let it charge while also having an alarm clock app open all night lol.

    This could be great for hospitals that it needs to move from room to room. The current ones are clunky and get in the way of medical equipment. As a healthcare worker and long term patient, I can see this working.
