iPad Pro owners who actually use it heavily, which size did you go for and why? • Big: 12.9”, either generation. • Small: 9.7” gen 1 or 10.5” gen 2.

Small: 10.5 gen 2. I carry mine around in theatre rehearsals, smaller size and mobility matter and the 10.5 does give me a little more screen real estate to have a script open along side Notes.

10.5”. Chosen for portability. I see (perhaps wrongly) the 10.5” as a creating device, and the 12.9” as a consuming device. The latter is too big for my needs.

Small: 10.5” gen 2. It strikes a great balance between the original 9.7” (which I felt was too cramped on the Smart Keyboard when I tested in store) and the behemoth of the 12.9”.

I have 1st gen 12.9, bought before the 10.5 existed. I love it at home, but find a bit conspicuously large on-the-go. Would probably go 10.5 next time around.

9.7 ‘cause the 10.5 didn’t exist yet. Today I would go with the 10.5. Physically it is essentially the same size as the 9.7 with more screen and faster and more responsive. I have no regrets - love it.

9.7 and love it but want to try the larger size - once it has been updated.

12.9 first generation . Wanted it as a primary mobile platform and wanted the biggest screen possible.

I had the 12.9 and while it was amazing to use it was a pain to move around. Now have the 10.5 and couldn’t be happier. My primary machine next to my Avid editing Mac for work. Email, message, everything. Can pickup and grab to go jot notes easily.

10.5” + Smart Cover + Pencil. Mainly used for chewing through a ton of e-mails + note taking + thinking time with the pencil.

12.9” 1st Gen, because I wanted a big screen to read on, and do drawing with the Apple Pencil

12.9 all the way. I write structural calculations all day, and it’s like an A4 calc pad. Also, if you’re in a meeting, landscape split screen with two ‘full size’ apps is super useful for agenda on one pane, and GoodNotes in the other.

1st gen 12.9. Best ‘computer’ I’ve ever used.

Structural calculations — fascinating. Would love to see a screenshot of your workspace.

For me it’s exactly the same as Daniel said. 9.7”, the 10.5 wasn’t there yet. And I still like it. Would pick a 10.5” now if I didn’t have one, but not trading my 9.7” in. Also happy with the back cover and keyboard that I got with it.

10.5 I had the 12.9 for about a year but really missed the portability of just holding the iPad in my hands and doin stuff with it so I went to the 10.5 when it was released. Rarely miss a larger screen. The extra screen size from the 9.7, although minimal, is plenty for me

12.9. Original one. But always wanted larger iPad from day 1. For comics, technical manuals and drawing. Would still go for larger model. Hoping for refresh this year...

12.9 first gen. I use it mostly at home so weight and size wasn’t really an issue. I like the big screen. Especially when sketching with the pencil and watching movies.
