Up to now I've always been a 9.7 fan -- love the mini too but different tasks. I have a 9.7 Pro now and as soon as the new iPads go on sale I'll probably make the jump to the current generation. I've played with the 10.5 and 12.9. The 10.5 is just a tad bigger than the 9.7 and you feel it, not in the weight but how the weight is distributed in the slightly bigger case. It's not as comfortable to me as the 9.7 was BUT who doesn't love more screen. So now that iOS 11 seems to be taking multitasking a bit more seriously I'm actually considering the 12.9 -- a model I didn't care at all about when I bought the 9.7. For those that made the jump to this current model 12.9 from a previous 9.7 model: how is it working out for you? Do you travel with it on airplanes? Is it awkward to use in a coach plane seat? Can you comfortably use it to read or browse with on a couch or bed? Or is it a best to place on a table -- really more of a laptop substitute than content consumption device?
