I really was as happy as one could be with the 12.9 ipp. Why'd I have to get curious and pick up a 9.7 pro? At first, the 9.7 felt like a mini after using the 12.9 for a couple of months. But the more I've used it, the more I like it. I have both sizes, both with smart keyboards attached. I have compared my work flow, and they both accomplish everything just fine. The 9.7 feels small at times, but other times the 12.9 feels too big. Unforeseen personal circumstances are going to prevent me from keeping both. It's a first world problem, and not really a problem at all, but if you could only have one, which would you choose? Specifically those who own both sizes. P.S. Bring on the chorus of "why do you ask a bunch of strangers on the Internet to make your decisions for you." I ask because I can. After all, this is Mac Rumors, we are all a little crazy.
