I am in this situation where I think I need both and wanted others thoughts. I love to use my iPad Pro in bed to read comics and magazines. I think the pro is amazing for this as you don't have to zoom to read things....the screen size is about the same as the page size of a real magazine. But then I don't want the iPad pro any bulkier or thicker than needed, so I would use the regular smart cover. However, if I want to use the iPad like a laptop and do some emails and document editing, then I need the smart keyboard. I suspect the smart keyboard doesn't work very well folded back on itself to just handhold for magazine reading in bed, not just because of the extra weight but also just the extra thickness on one side when its folded back. Anyone else facing this dilemma and ended up with both?
