    hows your usage patterns and do you use both enough to make it worth it without it being overkill?

    Last year the 12.9" IPP replaced my 15" rMBP (which I sold to buy a 27" 5k iMac). It's been great as a laptop, which I take to work, as well as do my own writing, photo-editing, music composing, etc.
    However, I found it too big to use comfortably when traveling.
    So, I bought a 9.7" during a Target Christmas sale. I was amazed at the lightness and thinness of this device. Now I can do reading, media consumption and other "lite" activities on something bigger than an iPhone, but not as unwieldy as a 12.9" production tablet.

    Best of both worlds!

    I do - and it's awesome!

    I use my 9.7" Pro extensively at work. It's also my portable sketchbook (I carry it with me everywhere). It's also my control device for my Drone.

    I use my 12.9" Pro at home (art projects, and surfing/videos), though I'll take it with me if I'm going spicifically to draw.

    On some occasions (though rare) I use the two of them together (taking notes while reading).

    I have a pretty good balance with my Pros.
