Confirming the above. Don't blow your money on an ipad pro until you play with the laptop and stylus. The ipad pro + apple pencil definitely work better, but $1000 better? That's going to depend on how you like to take notes and how much you would utilize it. Also if you wait, you can see other people's and play with them some to get a feel for whether it's worth it to you. It's worth it to me, but it's not for a lot of people.
