Logitech Create keyboard turns 9.7-inch iPad Pro into lightest laptop yet
9.7-inch iPad Pro, as Apple claims, has all the makings of a good laptop that until there is a keyboard. Many iterations of keyboards including Apple’s smart keyboard for iPad Pro have hit shelves, but none have been as impressive as the Logitech Create 9.7, which is ideally the most effective keyboard for the Pro. Tailor made for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the smart keyboard works with iPad’s smart connector. The keyboard instantly works as it is hooked to the smart connector – no pairing or charging required.
The lightweight Create 9.7 in only 426 grams and is priced at $129.99. Made from water-resistant fabric it comes in a protective folio case and sticking to an iPad Pro makes it the lightest laptop there is.
Create 9.7 features movable keys that provide you with feel of typing on a laptop’s keyboard. The keyboard is backlit, so it can be used in darker spaces with ease. The compact keyboard feature an Apple Pencil holder and a row of shortcut keys for media, volume and brightness (as you’d find on a laptop).
Talking about the ingenuity of the Create keyboard, Michele Hermann, vice president of tablet accessories at Logitech said,
Create is like the Swiss Army Knife of keyboard cases. It puts all the tools you need at your fingertips, and the keyboard charges through the Smart Connector so you can just set your iPad Pro into a typing position and go.
Create is also available for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This one weighs 725 grams and it’s priced at $149.99.
