ZAGG have recognised that some of the owners of an Apple iPad Pro 12.9 want to use it instead of a laptop by turning it into an alternative to a MacBook. This has resulted the ZAGG Slim Book Ultrathin Case with Keyboard Review. Its a keyboard case that greatly resembles one of Apple’s laptops. Additionally, this keyboard case turns the iPad Pro 12.9 into a 2-in-1, offering some features a MacBook doesn’t have.

The slim book can convert this tablet into clamshell laptop. However, as the base needs to be heavy enough to hold the top stable, it adds additional weight.

The keyboard resembles the ones found in Apple MacBooks. It has normal-size keys with plenty of space around them. There is a set of iOS function buttons across the top of the keyboard. The keys are also backlit and offer a range of colors: red, white, purple, green, blue, and yellow. This is convenient when typing in a dimly-lit areas.

The ZAGG Slim Book Ultrathin Case is not as protective as a completely rugged case and doesn’t do anything to completely protect the display. Yet, when it’s being used without the keyboard, this tablet is safer than having nothing at all.
