Reading a number of articles about the possibility of an iPad Pro/Plus, I saw that many people had reservations about the size (12.9 inches), saying that it's large size will make it unportable and hard to use, and keep it from having mass appeal. Having lived with both an iPad 2 and a 12.5" Windows tablet for a while, I'm not sure how valid these concerns are. First on the portability front - a 12.9" iPad would almost certainly be much smaller than a 13" Macbook Air, which is classified as an "ultraportable" laptop. It would probably weigh less than half as much, have a much smaller bezel, and be much thinner. So the idea that an iPad Pro wouldn't still be ultraportable seems silly to me. Usability seems a slightly more legitimate concern to me. The thing that strikes me about the iPad is the fact that somehow, no part of the screen seems to be too far to reach. I would attribute this to the 4:3 aspect ratio. Going back to my Windows tablet, its aspect ratio is 16:9, which I found was a bad ratio for a tablet. It's too wide to reach the center of the screen in landscape mode, and it's absurdly tall and top-heavy in portrait mode. 4:3 on a larger 12.9" device would probably still be an improvement, but I concede that there may still be some reachability issues. What I noticed was that with my Windows tablet it was hard to use when used purely as a tablet because your hands holding the sides can't reach the center of the screen. But when I put it on its keyboard dock to use as a stand, it was much more usable. So maybe some sort of stand for the iPad Pro might be important. I know it's very unlikely, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Surface-style kickstand. Anyway, what do you guys think? Would an iPad Pro be too big?
