    Who else here thinks the 12.9 is a humongous tablet? I had been finding it difficult to tote this iPad around because of its size, it gets snagged while retrieving it from a bag, and it just is a large magnet for people's fingers, not mine which is annoying...

    Yup. I agree it's too big. That's why I went with the 11inch.

    Mm....also got rid pf my first-gen iPad Pro 12.9”, for the same reasons are yours. Changing needs, I needed a more compact unit. Thus the 11”. It complements my 9.7” perfectly: no downtime.

    Personally its just the right size for me hahaha i have large hands nad a bigger screen makes it easier to navigate. Being a student I also prefer the way google docs looks like with in a bigger screen. Makes it look less crowded.

    Anyone tried buying an IPAD Pro sa kimstore.com ? It's cheaper than AJT Gadget World (Greenhills). Ok kaya?

    Else, can you recommend another place in Manila where I can get one? Need to get it ASAP since it will be my mom's xmas gift to my dad.

    Thanks.

    ^I actually thought (and heard) AJT GH sells their iPads cheaper, by just a few hundred pesoses tho' but never knew Kimstore was way cheaper, or am I wrong?

    If it's just a few bucks way off then choose one of them because giving something, anything to your Dad need to be priceless...

    Mm...disadvantage with Kimstore. No shop. No visit. Meet-up or shipping. Problem? What is the unit they delivered is a lemon? You just wasted half a day that you could have used to be productive. Better in Greenhills. Replacement units are readily available just in case your unit is defective.

    Mm..yes but might as well deal with authorized resellers. Personally, I ve had trouble-free dealings with Switch and BTB (2 Apple TVs, Magic Keyboard etc.). I am comfortable dealing with gray market for as long as replacements are available on that day. Otherwise, no deal from me.

    I have a question on Apple Care for iPad, if for example, there is a hardware defect and I have it replaced within the warranty period, based on experience, coverage is extended for 2 months.

    What if the replacement broke within the additional 2 year period, will Apple replace it? Unli replace ba? As long as the hardware is proven at fault?

    The background of this question is, I have my original 10.5” replaced because I saw a faint white spot in the LCD, and the replacement while ok is now again showing a small faint white spot. Although livable, it may happen to the iPad Pro 2018 that I am planning to buy. I am planning to get the Apple Care, depending on how the policy on how replacement goes.

    If I did decide to buy one, is the Apple Care worth it? Maybe someone bought Apple Care for their iPad. Since the A12 Bionic is future proof I think for the next 3 years, I am not planning to replace it within the Apple Care warranty period.
