Which one will you get?

Edit: oops there's already a poll for this. Can we delete/close this thread?

I cannot say yet. I currently have a 10.5 inch iPad Pro and I’m a huge fan of the size in all contexts. I have never owned the 12.9 inch iPad, but feel like it would just be a bit clumsy and awkward. I am holding off until some of the real reviews come out, not just those from the major news outlets. While I am absolutely sure that the XDR display will bring improvements, I want to know if they are meaningful improvement in casual day today use, or if they are only truly noticeable when watching specific kinds of content.

This is seriously bothering me now.. I prefer the 11" portability but you only have to add 300 dollars to get a really nice bigger XDR display, which probably will be on top of the chart for a decade.

I want to get the 11” really because I love the size of it, but the wife isn’t letting me because not holding a device for the past months have made my carpal tunnel problems dissapear and she wants my hands to function longer than 35 years.... And if I am going to use it in the magic keyboard for most of the time anyway I might as well get the XDR screen.

10.5 Pro, to 12.9 Pro - Tried the 12.9 2020 today and it's not that much of a big deal. Inch taller and wider, bit heavier. Not the luggable gargantuan beast many seem to portray it as.

Will be interesting to see what you think once you get it. That is exactly how I was thinking before I got my 12.9” last year. But once I had it home I never could adjust to using it in my hands so it sat in the magic keyboard 24/7.

My wife ended up taking it to replace her 12.9” and I bought the 11” again.
