- Tram Ho
Apple has traditionally kept nearly all of the specifications of its products secret, from detailed configuration or even the weight of the product. Users who want to know these parameters must find out for themselves. And recently, to see how many grams of iPad Pro 2020 and the new Magic Keyboard weighed, a user tried to bring it to the scale to find out. As a result it is really heavy!
Specifically, the new Magic Keyboard alone weighs 710 grams, which is heavier than the 2020 iPad Pro itself (641 grams). When combined, the overall weight is up to 1362 grams, which is heavier than the newly launched 13-inch MacBook Air 2020, which weighs only 1290 grams. For the 11-inch version, the Magic Keyboard alone will weigh 601 grams, while when attached to iPad Pro weighs 1072 grams.
For those of you who don’t know, Apple’s new-generation Magic Keyboard comes with a sturdy and sturdy stand, which can help the iPad Pro hang “suspended”, a fixed distance from the keyboard surface. create a feeling of convenience during use, especially when typing. The new Magic Keyboard itself is also upgraded with a built-in trackpad, with additional backlighting to provide the same user experience as the MacBook models. Perhaps because of the upgrade so much so that the Magic Keyboard weighs quite so.
The question here is if only a compact device is needed for users to take it anywhere and anytime, whether an iPad Pro with a Magic Keyboard will be owned, instead of a MacBook Air with traditional laptop design? The design of the new Magic Keyboard requires itself to be heavy in order to ensure ruggedness when attached to an iPad.
Of course, we can’t compare the experience of using an iPad with a MacBook because iPadOS and macOS are two different operating system platforms, created with the purpose and needs of use. different. With the iPad, users can easily disassemble the keyboard to be able to use as a traditional tablet.
MacBook Air 2020 vs. iPad Pro 2020 combo and Magic Keyboard?
But if you are considering buying an iPad Pro 2020 with a Magic Keyboard to replace the MacBook Air (considering the need to use a separate keyboard continuously) then you should probably reconsider because the iPad + keyboard combo will is both heavier and more expensive than a standard 2020 MacBook Air ($ 1349 vs. $ 999).
