The 9.7-inch iPad Pro was titled the ‘Ultimate PC replacement’ by Apple, and for a lot of people it is. But for myself, mainly working within the creative world designing graphics, editing videos and conjuring up visual effects — this isn’t really possible on the iPad Pro yet.

Like a giant iPad.

 

Imagine you had a 24-inch iPad which could be propped up to any angle.

Now add in a pressure-sensitive pen along with the multi-touch goodness.

This is Wacom’s new 24HD.
