Did I make the right decision? I wanted a laptop replacement (as far as possible) I wanted the faster clocked CPU I wanted the 4 Gb RAM I wanted the USB 3.0 / capability to charge MUCH faster with the 29W charger with lightning to USB-C cable. I have an SLR camera capable of 4K video. I also have my iPhone 6s Plus. I am a graphic artist and though I still use my MacBook pro fro heavy editing, I have successfully employed the Adobe apps on the IPP sufficiently enough to do on the go editing and corrections. I use the lightning to SD card reader for transferring the images / videos. Other apps like Pixlr also have full layer support etc. I have yet to find a capable WYSIWYG web page editor to replace Dreamweaver. I can edit pages on the go with Coda - and it works QUITE WELL TOO!!! But like most, I don't have ANY desire to code a page from scratch in HTML - I want the visual editor and keep the code for editing small things or tweaking. There is only one thing I envy the new 9.7 IPP for... the 5 MP front facing camera. I would NEVER use a 12.9" iPad to take photos as it would be hugely cumbersome to hold LOL. And like I said, I have an SLR and my iPhone 6s Plus to take images with. But Skype etc would be so much better with higher res front camera... like 3 MP even.... WHY THE ONLY 1.2 MP???? I suppose it's sufficient to make a call to a family member even if it is a bit pixely. So I am happy with 12.9 IPP but I am still feeling envy with the 9.7 for the 5MP front camera... still that's no reason to give up the larger screen, etc. Side by side in the Apple store, the 9.7 now looks tiny. The 12.9 has more area than my 13" MBP screen.
