    I do think its relative LOL. I've had an Ipad since second week of Ipad 1, they never seemed heavy to me. I don't find the 12.9 especially heavy either but as I've said I don't "hold" it up like a book to use it. Even when I carry it I don't find it heavy--more bulky or largish than heavy. But still way less than most laptops--the Mac Air and maybe even the new Macbook 13" would seem about the same--but without touch which I love and I do use the Pencil quite a bit. So for me, it doesn't seem much heavier say than the Ipad 1 or maybe 3--but definitely larger. I've said its portable--the 9.7 or an upgrade to the 10.5 suits my husband for portability more but I will compromise for the bigger screen. OH, and if you use the camera (I don't) would probably prefer the smaller Ipad also.

    It would be interesting if someone would find out how much all these iPads weigh.

    Thanks scifan57. I checked the site and the 12.9 Pro (gen 1) weighs just very slightly less than the original Ipad 1 cellular/wifi. Didn't think I was crazy LOL.

    I think one of the major benefits of the 12.9 over the other Pro sizes is for those who use the pencil. If you draw, write, do math or equations, then having a Pad that is nearly the same size as an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet of paper is just nice. More real estate also means less need for zooming and such. If I didn't have a need for the pencil, I probably could have gone for a smaller one.

    By the way, I too think the mini is a really nicely sized iPad. That is what I like to have when I'm sitting on the couch watching the tube. I currently have the mini 2 (the one that came out with the retina screen after the very first one which was pretty lame, IMO). I am waiting for this thing to die to I'll have an excuse to get a mini 4. I just hope they don't kill the mini off before my mini 2 dies. Of course, they could offer an iPad Pro mini...and they could even add that force technology (or whatever it is called) that is present in the iPhones!

    As a hand holding device I like small screen sizes, I guess 9.7 inch was awesome for hand holding but when you enter into the realm of laptop replacement the larger screens are inevitable, and therefore I chose 10.5 which is a balance of both size, portability/hand holding property.
