Firstly let me say straight off the bat I don't need the Pro as a "pro" device, I was more than happy with my 3rd gen ipad as a media consumption device, I always liked the idea of a bigger iPad and when the rumours first started doing the rounds I promised myself that if it ever saw light of day and wasn't prohibitively expensive I'd dive in. That day has come, I was all set to go for the 32gb version but my wife got me the 128gb pro as an early xmas present, even better, but at £850 plus a smart cover it's not exactly great value, I don't need the pencil and will probably not get one either this is just my thoughts of it as a bigger better iPad so I will only mention a few things that I noticed were a different from my 3rd gen iPad other than the size. Firstly the screen is amazing as we'd all expect but it seems to me to be an even bigger smudge magnet than my last iPad, not that it takes away from it's use, as most of you will know you only really notice this when its off or at a sharp angle. The weight is fine for me, it is noticeably heavier but not massively so, but it's certainly not as comfortable to hold for any great length of time unlike its smaller siblings, but lets be fair there's few instances where I would find myself struggling with it for my type of use. Where the size did make something more difficult was typing in portrait mode as having to hold it near the bottom tended to make it feel unstable, to compensate I found I had to shift my grip a little higher on the bezel which didn't make typing as easy as I would like. I also seem to make more typing errors and I don't understand why but it's really bad. Using it for browsing, reading, and watching content is fantastic, I not going to lie here I'd always wanted something a little bigger so I knew it would be a positive experience, where I was pleasantly surprised was using it for Excel, I use excel a lot at work and my laptop is a 13" rMbp and I wont be expecting to use the iPad Pro instead of either of those for any heavy lifting but I thought I'd have a look at Excel and it was a good experience, the the bigger screen is a plus in this regard and if I really had no other choice I guess I would use it as a stop gap. To finish off this brief summary I'll cover gaming, I love gaming, my gaming PC is a high spec X99 build and is my weapon of choice but there's certain types of games that lend themselves to a touch interface and I'm not going to ignore the pro for gaming, I bought Baldurs Gate and X-Com and both are fantastic on the Pro and the performance is amazing, but as with all tablets it hits the battery quite hard. TLDR. If you have the cash and want something a little bigger for content consumption I think it's the best tablet bar none.
