Who among you will sell their iPad Pro 12.9" to buy the new 9.7" model?
What reasons may push you to this step?

Not sell, I returned it.

Biggest reason is it was too large and while the screen size was great that did not offset me carrying it around and handling it. And I really don't need a Pro for my usage and I draw stick men which I will just do for cheaper.

And to add Apple accessories to it just made the whole dollar spent not worth it for me.

I've had the iPP for about a month now. Have already commented on how small my Air 1 felt, when I was still using it during the transition stage.

Anyhows, the Air 1 has been lying dormant until I was sure all I needed off it was indeed over on the iPP.

Plan is to give it to the wife, with her Mini 1 64gb making its way down to the little gal, whose 16gb Mini 1 then drops to the littler guy, whose venerable iPad 1 then becomes a dedicated Plex machine in the kitchen.

Had to reset the Air 1 tonight, and transfer the restore/backup from the wife's Mini over to the Air.

The bizarre thing is that the Mini's still feel the same - but for some inexplicable reason, my Air feels like, well, like a 'toy'! I don't know why, especially given that the Mini's are obviously smaller - but the Air is just so tiny now.

So a pretty TL:DR post simply saying that there is no way I could go back to a 9.7". The Pro has ruined me. Bigger has now become 'better'... My 2-cents.

Lots of folks are not going to do it because they already spent bucks on accessories for IPP which will go to waste.

I have the Pro, Smart keyboard, and Pencil and there is no way I will go back. I have an iPad 4 that stays in the family room as a remote for the Apple TV and if I don't feel like getting out of the chair and want to do something quickly I will use it then. Other than that, the Pro and its screen size is where I am at from now on. I am getting ready to order an iMac for the office and my MacBook Pro will probably rarely be used.

I would like Apple to take better advantage of the 12.9" display instead of using a scaled-up iPhone UI. Granted, the Air and Mini suffer from the same UI optimizations (or lack thereof) but it's obviously the most apparent on the Pro. Either way, I don't see how the iPad can be a viable option for me if Apple doesn't properly address this issue.

If somebody bought and kept the iPP (beyond the return period), then obviously the bigger size screen worked for them. So why on earth would they trade down and get the 9.7" instead when it becomes available?

Really no point to this thread if you think about it...

Are you saying that you are thinking about getting another 15"? My set up is an ipp as my driver and a 15" at the house

Yes, just thinking about it. I sold mine last month. AppleCare finally ran out and the 15" was having issues switching video. (It would have a slight scramble). Anyways, just thinking about it. I am finding the iPP is near perfect for my daily use. The only thing lacking, for me, is the storage. Storage as in, trying to accustom myself to keeping things in the cloud.

As far as going back to a smaller iPad, I don't think I would ever. This doesn't feel that big any longer.

I will be sticking with the 12.9" screen for the foreseeable future. I am a college student, and find this to be the perfect device for 99% of my daily needs. I don't go anywhere without it. An amazing educational tool, great for taking notes, mesmerizing for media consumption, still only 1.5 lbs, I could go on for days.
