    Hi

    I had a iPad mini 2 and an iPad 3. I planed to upgrade to a newer mini, but was disappointed that there wasn't a least a A9 chip in there. With the pencil support I'm torn to the iPad Pro 9.7.

    My main use case with the mini was, that I can use it to draft blog post and texts while traveling in public transport.
    In portrait mode the software keyboard is quite usable with two hands. I can reach every key with without too much hassle.

    The iPad mini seemed perfect for typing with two hand in portrait mode. The older iPads I had where to heavy and bulky for that.

    The iPad air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7 are a lot lighter and not so bulky like their older brothers. The software keyboard can also be used in split mode, so all keys should be reachable in portrait mode with two hands.

    Do anybody use the new iPad Pro 9.7 like this or an iPad Air 2? I fear that they a bit to big for this, but I want the
    pencil support, damn.

    Currently have the iPad Mini 4, wanted something bigger and got the iPP 9.7" yesterday. I got the Space gray wi-fi and Cellular model 128 GB. I will plan on keeping my iPad mini 4 to take with me wherever I go.

    Dude, how good is the sound output and quality? Is it as loud and good as its 12 inch cousine?

    The speakers on the new iPad Pro 9.7" sound remarkably good. My spouse's iPad Pro seem louder, but I'm not sure they sound any better. Perhaps slightly better lower frequencies because of the larger resonance chambers the larger sibling affords, but perfectly good just the same. I'm quite happy with mine, and the True Tone screen is looking better and better to me daily, compared to the larger Pro.

    One things is for certain, perusing the forums via the forum website in desktop mode is pleasant again via my iPad Pro....

    When compared to iPad air, is the difference like heaven and earth?

    I been holding off to get a new iPad for a while now. I have the iPad 3 and been drooling over the idea of getting an iPad Pro. Since the Apple Pencil review I been wanting to get it. I love to draw. I have used Paper by 53 to draw my cat Patches using a cheaply stylus. Attachment 104326 Can't imagine what I could look like if I were to get the Pro but not sure about the sizes. Is it better to draw on the bigger screen or is it the same?
    That is a great drawing.

    Please excuse my ignorance because I have never had an iPad, but is there an adaptor that let's you use USB devices such as an external hard drive? I'm referring to the Pro models.

    [ I am stuck between choosing between the iPad Pro and the new Macbook Pro. I could go either way. I love the idea of the Apple pencil and the new keyboard with the iPad AND I love how light and easy it would be to tote around. I am used to using a 2012 Macbook pro which is heavy. What are your thoughts? I went to the store today and was totally surprised by how light and beautiful the Macbook was though. It surprised me. I loved it more than I thought. think I if I picked the iPad I would wonder about the macbook and vice versa. I'm trying to make a good buying decision. I use mine for social media, (lots of photo's) webinars, email, and google documents. I am an avid journal and think I would love using the notes with my pencil on the iPad, but I wonder if that's just a thought and once I have it will I use it. Will it really take the place of my paper journals?

    Got my ipad pro 9.2 in 128gig about a month ago. I want to keep my macbook pro at home and not have to take it everywhere and cause so much wear and tear on it. The ipad comes in handy for finishing up documents that I might have started on my macbook, or viewing something that i created.
