Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2021) - Ridiculously Powerful

M1 was Apple’s first custom processor, and never in my years of writing about notebooks have I seen a processor that’s so powerful and efficient. In my review, I said it rewrote the notebook rulebook. So what did Apple do next? Naturally, it took the M1 chip and put it in the iPad Pro.

No Rest For The Wicked

With not one, not two, but three Diablo games in the pipeline and well on their way to release, I don’t think I can stress this enough: it’s a fantastic time to be a fan of Blizzard’s beloved dungeon-crawler franchise. On our end, we’ve already thrown a few punches at both Immortal and D2R’s Technical Alpha sessions, and so far, we’re quite satisfied with what they’ve got on the menu.
