    How about an iPad Maxi?

    I am well over the hill, my eyesight is going south, and I could use a 13-15 inch iPad (a Maxi?).
    Actually, I had bought an iPad 2 a year ago, but web browsing strained my eyes too much with a 10' screen, so I handed it down to my niece.
    The point is, I stay online a lot, but rather that sitting at a desk or using a laptop that, with a 9:16 non-pivot screen, is a horrible internet experience, I could lounge on my sofa with a tablet, provided its screen is big enough to be readable.
    No big dpi count is needed, 2048 by 1536 will do nicely. Basically, it could use regular iPad chipset, only with a larger screen and battery.

    You'll have to ask Apple, but I saw a tablet like this (or what was it a PC?) on a cNet video a few days ago. Ah, it was a Sony AIO PC with a huge touch screen so you could run it using your hands.

    Interesting.

    What are peeps's interests in say a 12 or 13 inch ipad? Considering it would be relatively very thin and light it might sound like a very appealing suggestion, apart from cost maybe.

    I'd personally prefer a 13 inch ipad than a 13 inch mb pro, even tho they'd be 2 different animals

    G'day sjlewerthy,and I would be standing right behind you, in what, I would suspect might be rather a long line, to have something that you could proudly say "I have an iPad" and then enjoy a nice 13" model on an evening lounging in your arm chair.

    Nah, that would kill the portability and lap factor for me. I believe the current size of the iPad is just about a perfect blend of size, weight, and portability. On the other hand, anything much smaller than the current iPad is too small for me. I don't get how people can use phones as much as they do but to each their own. If the device gets much bigger than it is now, they'll have to change the name of it to like the imonitor or the iTV.

    G' day mikey, LOL😂 I know I indicated somewhere it probably would be nice to have a 13" iPad to relax with of an evening. How hilarious is it to have my iPad the size of myTV? I rest my iPad on my err convenient midriff. My TV is a Panasonic 58". Could they bring out a "guilliotine" iPad?

    Obviously, it's not, for some users. When your presbyopia passes a certain point, you'll want a larger screen, too. I added a bookmarklet to Safari to bump up the font size as required; it's a PITA because it only affects the current page, but it rescues some sites from utter unreadability.

    Imagine how much better the keyboard could be on a 13” screen. Number keys!

    An iPad maxi (surely Apple would pick a less smirk-provoking name!) would not replace a smaller tablet, but might be a better tool for sofa surfers who don't need portability as much as legibility.
