    I own the 12.9, and wouldn't go smaller at this point. I absolutely love the screen, speakers, and roomy ASK. It has changed how I work and how I watch media. The lower portability is mostly offset by my iPhone, but I do have a leather satchel to carry it between home and work.

    I don't believe it is beneficial to make a decision based on rumors - this is the perfect way to set ourselves up for disappointment. I believe much of the unhappiness people experience with any product is due to entering into a transaction with preconceived notions.

    Why not wait until something is actually released, or until Apple makes a statement, before setting our minds on it? Think about it, we're not going to get the product until it's released anyway.

    I'm really happy with my 9.7" pro. I'm not planning on changing.

    Although I voted for the 10 inch, I am really hoping it's closer to 10.9. The perfect sized iPad Pro would be around 11-11.5. The 9.7 is entirely too small for true productivity and the 12.9 while nice is a bit large when holding it.

    I will probably upgrade to a 12.9" iPad Pro 2 and give my current iPad Pro 12.9" to a family member. I love the bigger screen and it's great for split screen, picture in picture and using the Apple Pencil, I really think Apple nailed it when they made the iPad Pro, it's by far the best iPad yet!!

    Well I have a 12.9 and I'm not likely to downsize. I don't know if I'll upgrade or not; just depends on what changes are made.

    Depends what 10.5 provides

    My 9.7 pro is great as it is and don't really need to upgrade like I do with phones but I always seem to upgrade my phone and iPad every year

    I voted for the 7.9". I already have a 9.7" pro and have no desire for a larger size. I also have a mini 2 and would upgrade that to a mini "pro" if it becomes available.

    I still don't see a 10" ipad happening. It doesn't make sense to me to add a new size that is that close to the 9.7". The only way I can maybe see it happening is if they were to make it a 16:9 screen aimed more at movie/TV consumption.

    My intent right now is to upgrade from my 9.7" iPad 4th gen to a 12.9" iPad Pro 2nd gen.

    i think 9.7 could become the lower cost model..i think 10.5 would be a sweat spot for many people not too big and not too small

    7.9"

    Already have 9.7" and would rather get a 12" MacBook over a 12.9" iPad Pro. An iPad mini 4 can be used as a bigger iPhone 6 Plus with VOIP apps.

    If the 10.5" rumor turns out to be true and it's about the same size as the current 9.7" with shrunken bezels, I'll be getting that one.

    I'm happy with the combination of the 12.9" Pro and 7.9" mini. I hope they continue to support both those form factors.

    10.5 (10. Anything, really) for me. I love my Air 2 and find the iPP a little too large away from the desk, so I'm hoping this new size will be right. I used the Surface 3 for a couple of weeks a while back and that's 10.8 if I recall correctly- and the size was the one thing in that device I truly loved. If it's close to that I'll be happy. Plus, I want to use the pencil. Powerwise, the Air 2 remains unbelievably good.

    10.5" in the body of the current 9.7" would really be the sweet-spot.

    ...This could give me a great reason to upgrade from my iPad Air 2, unless Apple decides to f*ck up yet another product line with their courage.

    I think the lower cost model will be the 2016 model 9.7" iPad Pro, which will get a $100 price cut, just like they have done with every other new release (the Air 2 will be discontinued).

    Same with the 12.9" iPad Pro, they will have a new 2017 model and the 2016 model will get a price cut.

    They won't necessarily drop the price of the Pro and discontinue the Air 2. They might keep the Air 2 around at the same price and discontinue the Pro. It wouldn't be the first or even second time they've done something similar.

    True they have done it before. When the iPad 4th gen came out they scrapped the 3rd gen and kept the 2nd gen, but the iPad 2nd Gen was only about 1.5 years old, and the 3rd Gen was kind of a misfit.

    The iPad Air 2 will be 2.5 years old if we are talking about a spring release. Then to keep selling that for another year or more, I don't think Apple will do that.

    They also did it with the iPad mini 3 and, while not really the same scenario, the iPad 5s. If Apple wants a low cost iPad, what better iPad to sell than the one they already have for really cheap that still performs really well?

    As an artist, I definitely want to be able to use the Apple pencil. So I want to upgrade to an iPad pro. I've had 2 iPad minis over the last few years. And love the portability, but II'm not able to use the Apple pencil. So, it all depends on wether Apple releases an iPad pro Mini. If not, then I'll probably choose the rumored bezel-less 10.5" iPad pro. It's suppose to have the same physical size of the current 9.7" iPad pro. But again, it's just a rumor. I will have to wait and see what Apple releases in March.
