I picked up my 12.9 today, and overall I’m really pleased with the changes. But the biggest difference for me is the sound quality coming from the speakers. Wow! They are brilliant. I wonder if the 11inch iPad Pro are as punchy? I bought the 12.9 as an experiment, thinking it would be too big. So far I’m pleased with the form factor, but for travel I’m still not convinced? But if there’s a drop off in terms of sound volume or quality I’ll think twice about the trade off, and stick with the 12.9.
