“All the fancy features of the Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch machine are now available in a smaller, 9.7-inch model, plus a few new extras,” Henry T. Casey reports for LAPTOP Magazine. “But before you dump your existing iPad Air or bigger Pro for the smaller size version, compare the differences in displays, prices, processors and cameras to make an informed decision.”
“If you wanted the 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s Pencil and Smart Keyboard, but felt that was tablet too large, you’ll be happy the new 9.7-inch model supports both,” Casey reports. “However, during our hands-on time with the 9.7-inch tablet, the new, smaller keyboard wasn’t exactly a joy to use. Its keys still have plenty of travel, but the cramped layout reminded us of the pains of writing on a netbook.”
“Starting at $599 with 32GB of storage, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro will also appeal to customers unwilling to pay the 12.9-inch tablet’s $799 starting price,” Casey reports. “At each storage capacity, the 9.7-inch tablet is $200 less than its big brother, and it maxes out at a $899 model with a 256GB hard drive.”
