    Here are a couple quick comparison pictures for your reference if you're a 9.7" owner and considering upgrading to the 10.5". The extra screen real estate is definitely noticeable and, more importantly, the larger keyboard keys are much more comfortable to type on.

    Visually the dimensions don't seem to be much. But the 10.5" feels much roomier without adding any real bulk. Let me know if there are any specific pictures you'd like to compare, but I'm 100% satisfied with my decision so far.

    Looking at the two displays side-by-side, I'm actually surprised how different the 10.5 dramatically looks over the 9.7 Pro. Maybe the reduced bezels (Especially the side bezels), but especially with more display area. Looking forward To my purchase. Thanks for comparison.

    Very helpful images, thank you.

    Still undecided between the 2 new Pros. Will check them out at my local Apple Store this evening.

    1st gen Pro 9.7 owner, still deciding which new Pro should I get. I love the screen estate of 12.9 while the protability of 10.5 is important to me. There is no return policy in Hong Kong Apple stores so I need to consider carefully.

    Surprising theres no return policy in HK. Love that store, bought my MacBook there, also enjoyed the tax free price :D.

    As for the iPad, I'm on the fence. On one hand I love my 9.7, but would love to upgrade. Whats keeping me is the potential that we may see a major re-design next year, so I may wait for that. The 9.7 serves well and performs well, despite what everyone is saying about the 2GB RAM situation.
