    Hi guys, I have my iPad Pro 10.5 inch for 2 years now, and ready to move on. Is the Pro 12.9 a good replacement, and not too big? thanks

    My advice: go to an Apple store or other location where you can put hands on the 12.9”... see for yourself.

    I have the 12.9” and find it to be the perfect size for design, illustration, video, office.

    Yeah that’s a good idea, thank you.I only use the iPad for browsing, and mostly gaming.

    I probably don’t need it, my pro 10.5 works great. It’s just the bigger screen sounds little better-:)

    When I got my iPad Pro the only size they made at the time was the 12.5” model.

    You’ll probably be more comfortable with the smaller iPad then. The 12.9” is less comfortable to hold. I find myself keeping it on the keyboard even when just reading and browsing, similar to a laptop much of the time. About the only time I hold it is when I want to lean back and read things like comic books and graphic novels (manga). The big screen really pays off there. But I’ve got a big belly to prop it on. Holding it up without support is tiring.

    After watching YouTube for the IPad 12.9 3rd gen, there were a lot bending issue with this iPad. I’m not careful at all with my devices, nor would like to be stressed out by paying attention to the issue. I’ll wait for the next one, hopefully much tougher to bend.
