    I really want to upgrade my Air 2 but this might be a deal breaker. Still deciding....

    If it really is 2GB of RAM, why is that so bad? The Air 2 runs great on 2GB of RAM and the Pro probably requires that much more with all the pixels being pushed onto the screen.

    I agree. My Air 2 runs decently on 2GB but with the 9.7 Pro I feel it may need more. Just don't want that iPad 3 experience. The 12.9 Pro runs extremely smooth but don't know whether to attribute it to the 4GB RAM or the A9X or maybe a combination of both.

    I feel you there. I bought an iPad 3.

    That was the worst upgrade I've ever made but you live & learn i guess. Hopefully when iOS10 is released, it doesn't bog down our 2GB RAM iPad's and if so, for some reason I feel the Air 2 would fair a bit better than the 9.7 Pro. Of course I would love to be wrong because I do like the upgrades made to the speakers, screen, etc.

    I was considering upgrading from my iPad Air (v.1), but after seeing the new Pro only having 2 GB of RAM, I'm passing. While I'm sure it would work fine (and faster than my Air), and while I would love to have split view to multitask on my Air, I'm trying to future-proof my purchases; I wouldn't be surprised if Apple came out with a 9.7 Pro with 4 GB of RAM in the next year. I'm also waiting to see what Watch 2 and the rumored MacBooks bring - that whole "responsible consumer" thing.

    I wish you could configure it to 4GB! Like shopping for a MacBook Pro, would be nice to tweak it up a bit
