I am really thinking about getting a 12.9 ipad. my questions are simple but may determine my decision.
1) how does it travel? My daughter does travel softball so we travel all over the country, sometimes drive and sometime fly. I am concern with the size it would be easier to break..

2) Everything I read says the 12.9 is diffcult to see in the sunlight...how good/bad is the 12.9 to see in the sun?

3) Without the keyboard how difficult is it to type using the built in keyboard?

thank you

Hi KevTN,

Fellow 12.9 iPad Pro owner here.
1) Depends on your case and bag. I have a 13" MacBook Pro bag from Incase and the Smart Cover and Smart Case for my 12.9" iPad Pro, and I have to say it's worked wonderfully for me. I take it around everywhere as a lot of times I find I just wanna suddenly sit down and draw when I'm in the mood.
2) Turn up your brightness, and you should be fine.
3) The built-in keyboard is actually REALLY GOOD, it's the same size as a full-sized keyboard. The question is, are you comfortable typing on a touch screen display? If so, you'll be fine.

I like the 12.9 but the 10.5 won out in the end. The size just felt perfect to me

I got the 3rd gen 12.9 and I love it I toss it in my backpack and go one thing though get a case and a screen protector. The bigger makes it great for reading and playing games (if you are into that)
And with the new upgrade (IPad os) its just like using a laptop
