We had all the same questions when the iPhone 6 Plus came out, because the new size was a crossover between the earlier iPhones and the iPad (i.e. will you still use the iPad if you have the 6 Plus). There are a lot of pros and cons of the new iPad Pro that keeps it from replacing either your laptop or your smaller iPad. All the reviews I've read have suggested its a bit too big for comfortable bedtime reading or TV bingeing, so the smaller iPad has a plus there. At the same time, the fact that it runs iOS, and not Mac OS makes it more limited than a laptop. Its kind of nicely placed in the middle. Do you think you'll find yourself using all three Apple Devices:iPad (or any similar sized tablet), iPad Pro, AND a Mac (or PC)?
