    which would you choose (12.9 or 10.5) and why?

    I posted in another thread that I was keeping my 12.9 and if I upgraded it would be to another 12.9, but then I went to Apple's site and I'm looking at them and wondering if I'd also love a 10.5 (even though it seems a LOT smaller to me).

    One thing that seems like a positive is just the overall size and weight for taking places. OTOH, I've gotten used to not really taking it other than on vacations when I know I'm going to want to use it daily. I don't take it with me on errands or day trips but IDK if I'd take an iPad with me period, even if it were smaller.

    For home use, I love the screen on the 12.9 and I love the keyboard (wonder if using the smaller ASK would be as easy as the larger one).

    If you were going to buy one, which of the two would you pick and what are the reasons for your choice?

    If I didn't own any iPad, 10.5 would be my choice. It's the "Goldilocks-size" for me for bringing anywhere (fits in my purse, 12.9 is too big).

    As I have a perfectly working 9.7 Pro, I plan on buying a 12.9 Pro to complement it. :)

    I'm considering moving on from my Air2 at the moment. I don't really use it for the pro features. I mainly use Netflix, HBOGO, Safari and some light gaming. I'm more interested in the 12.9 for the screen size and less about the pro features.

    I would have went with a 12.9, it can function as a laptop replacement for me too

    And also, 4GB of RAM

    Wait for the hands-on review to make an informed decision.
