    I'm curious to know how many people own both, since they are both exactly the same device and intended for use the same way.

    Not really though people don't talk about how often they go back and forth on usage

    Have both, use the 9.7 daily at work. I still have my 12.9 use it at home (I could sell it as the 9.7 is the one I use way more) I haven't sold as with the sales on new ones I figured I would just keep it for home use. The 9.7 is the perfect size for work. When I got the 12.9, I still had an air and used the air most of the day at work and used the 12.9 only when i needed the pencil. So when the 9.7 came out it was the best of both worlds for me not need to carry 2 devices in addition to my macbook pro.

    I use my 12.9 for reading textbooks, pdf articles and comics. I use the 9.7 to read epub type novels in iBooks or Google Playbook. Both have its function at different time, sometime I just want a big screen, sometime I want a smaller one.

    I bought one of each size but quickly returned the large iPPro to buy another 9.7".

    I use my 9.7 at work daily (mostly in meetings and extensively when traveling). My 12.9 is now used sparingly at home. If I would break it down daily, 80/20 to the 9.7.

    I can't say it will stay this way. Sitting down in front of the 12.9 is still magical.

    I have both. The 12.9 is more of a "table" machine, since it's too heavy for me to hold for a long time. The 9.7 is my main to go machine. In bed, sofa, train, etc.

    use 12.9 at work, note taking, reading a lot of PDFs, presentation deck - amazing to have it basically full size

    9.7 at home; have traveled with both - prefer the 9.7 for obvious reasons but when I know I need to do substantial work will bring the 12.9.

    I use the 9.7" at work for note taking. I also play games mostly on the 9.7". Right now I'm using the 9.7" to write this, and I browse a lot with the 9.7".

    I don't have a TV, so the 12.9" is my TV. I also use it for planning projects/etc when I'd like to have two apps side by side. I use them both daily for least 1 hour each.

    Do most people need them? Nah. But I'm a big dork and I love using the pencil, so I enjoy having both.

    Everyday.

    I'm a student so I use it everyday in class and everyday for homework. I'm also a researcher so my 12.9" iPad Pro is also my lab notebook. The Apple Pencil is the bomb.

    It's also the thing I use all evening to mess around on the internet and play games (Star Wars Heroes is still occupying me).

    It's one of the best Apple purchases I've made in the last few years...
