Apple touched on some of these reasons when it introduced the iPad Pro.

They include:

Power: iPad Pro is more powerful than 92% of notebook PCs.

Connectivity: LTE means you can get online anywhere — but this is not a standard fitting in every iPad Pro.

Ease-of-use: iOS is developed with ease-of-use in mind, but like most Apple products it can do a great deal more once you learn how to use it.

Apple Pencil: Apple Pencil opens a new interface paradigm, I think we will see more of this in future.
