I hold all my iPad's in portrait...never landscape. Sometimes it feels top heavy like it wants to fall on my face. I like the keyboard is reachable with thumbs. I hate the wasted space on home screen. Another row of icons could fit. It doesn't feel too heavy. The size is perfect for bed/couch browsing. Netflix movies look great!! I'll never need the pencil and don't want the keyboard. This thing would truly never need to leave my home.
