    Hello folks,

    I have been waiting for 2.5 years for new iPads. I currently have Air 2 and MacBook Air 11". My aim is not replacing my MacBook with iPad. I use my MacBook frequently.

    I am using my iPad 90% for studying (looking PDF's) and watching YouTube and Twitch. With new iPad I will buy, I am gonna use it with Pencil for taking notes in lectures also.

    But I can not decide which iPad I should buy. I think it is gonna be funny when I buy 12.9" iPad since it has larger screen than my MacBook. :p

    Any ideas? Is 12.9" iPad hard to be carried? Will I regret it with 12.9"?

    Thanks. :apple:

    12.9" iPad size will be approximately the same as your Macbook Air 11" (I also have this one but I dont have an iPad. I use a Windows PC instead). If you carry your Macbook and dont feel too heavy or too large, then 12.9" will be alright.
    10.5" by far just adds a more powerful processor and nothing more.
