    Mine was just delivered and after reading all the threads I thought it was going to be this enormous tablet,
    I think many of you need to visit the gym instead of sitting in front of the computer so long LOL it's a perfect size

    That's what I thought too.
    After reading all the "it's enormous" threads I was shocked to see it's really not that big at all!
    Larger yes, but ginormous, NO. And it's lighter than I thought too!

    I must agree or even as an older woman this is the perfect size.

    Try holding it for an extended period of time. Weight is negligible, just like at the gym where that doesn't matter. I give examples of exercises with just little weight involved if any and that doesn't mean they are easy.

    Try doing a plank, uncomfortable much? :)

    It is big but that wasn't a secret. I acquired a case about 2 weeks ago and was able to get used to that before getting my pro so I was fairly used to the size. Not much zooming needed on this thing!!

    I already do it with a 25 lb plate for 1 minute. Most beginners cannot do it for 30 seconds with none.

    Wow that's impressive. It's amazing how much a non impacting form of exercise can be so effective and make you sweat let alone add a 25lb weight.

    it's not even the weight, it just looks like you're holding a cookie sheet. It's comically large for a tablet.

    The iPad Pro is H-U-G-E, especially if you're used to an iPad Air or Mini. Biggest dern tablet I've ever seen. But it's light and thin. Feels no heavier than my iPad Air 2. I love it, and I might just get it. But I still need time to wrap my mind around such a beastly tablet.

    When I was at the store checking it out I noticed a lot of older couples were interested probably because the larger size is much easier on the eyes. Maybe it's a product category for the well off retirees more so than the broke ass starving students.

    I personally wish it were a tad larger - big enough to display 8.5" x 11" or A4 documents without scaling (maintaining margins). May not seem like a big deal until you try to display sheet music on it. With the ability for non-destructive document markup with the Pencil, add a remote to turn pages, and you would have a killer digital sheet music system.

    Way off topic but these go to the gym recommendations to be able to handle an iPad's weight I know are joking but handling and comfortability mean so much more even with exercising.

    Non impact form of exercise making one sweat? None better than using Jacob's Ladder!

    Holding three, dropping one and saying, these 10 commandments...

    Got to play with an iPP in the Apple store today. I thought it was going to be too big, but it's a manageble size. And it's about the same weight at my original iPad.

    I'm definitely not propping it up on the gym treadmill the way I do my iPad Air so I can run and read. Or the bathroom counter like I do when I get ready in the morning and read (I read a lot). I'm considering picking up a Mini for ebooks now. The Pro is stunningly gorgeous but it's slightly unwieldy with the other things I would use my Air for.

    But magazines look BEAUTIFUL on it, and if I ever get a Pencil *angryface* it's the perfect size to sketch on without feeling cramped for space.

    Its not heavy. Some of the comments I've seen that it's so heavy is ridiculous

    I just stopped by my local Apple Store. The tablet is much larger than I had envisioned. Too big for the casual user imo. Well too big for me anyway, but damn, it's nice. It was very responsive and I was impressed with the screen. Very sharp and I use a Mini 4, so I'm used to sharp.
    This is a nice tablet. I wish I could find a place for it in my line up.
