Just wondering what is everyone's most comfortable position.
In my lap or on my desk
Sitting in bed holding while its propped up against a small pillow on my lap.
I didn't see "all of the above" so I'm placing my vote here:
All of the Above
Mine is boxed and on the way back to the Apple store. But that's just me. I just have not found it to suit my use or meet my requirements so it's heading back to Apple.
But was it comfortable to hold?
Really I wanted to love this iPad but it was not comfortable to hold. I do a lot of work from home and on the couch with CAD illustrations. I found it awkward at best holding the Pro and switching back to the iPad Air 2 makes it more obvious how the size is not ideal for comfort. I would not mind if the software was better. I really hope Tim Cook changes strategy and we see a Pro model with iOS and OSX and a Smart Keyboard with a small trackpad. Until then an iPad will not handle enough of my work flow to be a real Pro model. It is an iPad Plus I think with limitations mainly in the OS. But the screen is beautiful.
Mine is not listed directly.
Basically on the couch in a tailor seat position / cross-legged and the iPad stuck into the legs. That is my most comfortable way.
I feel like holding the iPad Pro can get uncomfortable very quickly.
I use it on my lap with a dish towel rolled up and under the top of the Pro in landscape position. This gives a much better angle than just laying flat on my lap and my head is not bent as much.
Otherwise on an Anker stand which costed me $10 on Amazon I bought a few years ago.
I wonder if anyone carry the iPad Pro around to places like restaurant, cafe, beach, etc. and just sit there and use it? It is common to carry the smaller iPad around, just not sure how feasible it is for the Pro.
I would never do that because I would be to scared of it getting stolen.
This is why I have insureappleiphone (or ipad) AND applecare+. I live in Long Island and commute on mass transit into NYC for work, Applecare doesn't cover loss/theft, while insurappleiphone does.
Sitting on couch with knees propping it up, mostly portrait mode for magazine/textbook reading. Drawing, typing or split-screen, I flip it horizontal but still kind of prop it in my knees or sitting "criss cross applesauce".
On desk at work, horizontal with Smart Cover propping it up.
I would argue that it would be less prone to walking away due to the size vs something small like an 8" which actually happened to me at Starbucks. Turned my back for a second to throw something away then noticed it missing from my chair then saw a suspicious individual in thick jack in summer brisking away without swinging arm. A 12.9" would be a lot of more difficult to pull off.
As far as best way to hold something this large, I usually cradle it on my forearm in landscape with one corner against my elbow crease and the opposite corner in my hand then use the opposing hand for touch or pen.
