Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)

Get these speakers... else...The extra bit of iPad won’t make a difference really. Get the newer one. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sonos-one-sl-wireless-smart-speaker-black/6361926.p?skuId=6361926

iPad Air might be a better bet. The new Air has similar specs to the Pro, with the exception of the camera. Hopefully you’re not buying a tablet to take pictures :)

I have the 11” and love it. I use it for productivity but also for entertainment. It offers enough screen real estate to be productive but is small enough to be portable and “one handable.” If this is going to be your primary device then I would suggest the 12.9”, but if you have a laptop that you use for “real” work, the 11” is a no brainer.

I had the 12.9 and just swapped for an 11. The 12.9 was great while traveling, since I used it as a second screen for my laptop while I was onsite. However, since I’ve stopped traveling for work, I never reach for the iPad. 12.9 is just too big and unwieldy. I’m much happier with the 11” version and even if you’re watching videos, I think it’s enough screen. If you already have a MacBook for higher intensity stuff, just get the smaller one. Consider an Air 4 if you can live without FaceID. The speeds are pretty much the same so that’s the biggest difference as far as usability.

like

If you look at the performance testing it’s pretty negligible. I actually got a used 11” Pro first gen since it was the same price as an Air 4 and has faceid.

Just buy it. Get the bigger one.

Can you buy a gift card to extend the spend deadline?

Naah, you can’t. That’s the first thing I looked at :(

If you really don't need either then maybe donate a laptop / iPad to some student to attend online classes? Just throwing out another option
