    So the iPad Pro is going to be a day one for me.

    My 4 feels sluggish now, and is going to be passed on to my nephew.

    However, I've noticed lately that my iPad 4 has already started to look small to me!

    It's obviously because I'm already getting my head around the iPad Pro's larger size.

    Has anyone else been looking at their regular sized iPad, and thinking it's looking kind of small?

    This is a good thing for me, as ill appreciate the Pro all the more once I receive it ...

    Heh, funny I was thinking the same thing this weekend. I think a lot of people have this idea the iPad Pro will be massive, but also having played with the Surface Pro 4 a bit over the weekend, it's going to be a good size - if a little heavy. I love my Air, but I think it was smart to go bigger with the Pro. A stylus feels cramped on 10" screen, especially when you factor in UI and interface elements.

    Nah - IMO the current iPad is the perfect blend of size & portability. The Pro is a great looking device but IMO might be a tad large for lugging around all day.

    I'm in the same boat, every time I reach for my Air 2 I wish it was the Pro. I'm strongly debating whether giving in and pre-ordering or to try my luck during black friday...

    Can't use it comfortably and safely lying down... Unless you wear a helmet.

    I'm the other way around. I pick up my Air 2 coming from a Mini 2 and think it's huge! Even though I've had my Air 2 for a year, I still think it's huge. The Pro would just be gargantuan to me. I feel that the Air is the perfect blen of performance and portability, so I'll stick with it :)

    Go big or go home. XCom on the Pro is going to look AWESOME.

    Awhile back I bought my first iPad, a basic referb 16Gb Air 1, just to see what it would be like using one. I really like it however, coming from a 15" MBP I just can't get used to the much smaller 9.7" screen. The Pro will be a welcome sight.

    I just bought a mini 4. My Air 2 looks large. I don't need a Pro, but it looks like an awesome iPad.

    I'm extremely satisfied with the combination of the iPad Air 2 and the 6S Plus. If I want something bigger I have plenty of laptops and desktops to play around with.

    I was so into the iPad as soon as it came out, and I thought they would go tablet with almost everything portable... they didn't, and they did;t enlarge the iPad until now. As soon as I got an iPad--it was so cool--it seemed a little small. I prefer reading text on 8x11 paper or screens. This should do it.

    Any bigger than this isn't necessary for almost anything. A portable the size of a Macbook Air, but thin, is perfect for many things the iPad wasn't. I still wish it was a Macbook Air-Tablet... but for mobile word processing, prep work, surfing, mail--boffo.

    if the iphone plus will get more and more ipad style in the future, i think the ipad mini will come to an end.
    Only the ipad air and pro will remain

    I got my Mini 1 the day it came out. I wanted a light-weight travel computer. Laptops and even netbooks are heavier than I want to lug while traveling. A year later the Air 1 came out and I got one. Not too much heavier, still almost under a pound, but the bigger screen made journaling and web browsing easier, not to mention the retina screen. Once I had the Mini I no longer had to lug my Kindle DX. The DX is easier on the eyes, but hotel rooms never have enough light to read, and with the iPad that's no longer an issue. But although I bought the Mini, and then the Air mostly for travel, I found myself using them at home when I don't feel like sitting at the computer. Amazon Instant Video and now The Great Courses Plus Beta, sitting in my easy chair. Or just a relaxing game of chess against the tablet.

    The Pro will be even better for easy-chair video and web browsing, but whether it will be too big and/or too heavy for travel, I'll have to see it to decide. The Air might still be the ideal size for a tablet, especially for travel. So I am anxious to see and heft the Pro before I make up my mind, but I'm leaning toward getting it.

    You must be reading while lying down. I have a bolster that lets me sit up comfortably in bed for reading.

    Years ago I had a cat. (I still miss him.) Home computers would not exist for another decade. I wrote letters with a pen and pencil on a clipboard while sitting in my easy chair. The cat always wanted to stand on my letter. He was a terrible nuisance, but he was so cute I couldn't bear to push him away. I'd try to write around him, while he tried to steal my pen. He loved playing with ball-point pens. I fear you have a long wait ahead if you want a tablet that does not respond to paws. But I'll bet there's a good several million dollars just waiting for the first person to invent an app for that. :)
