For gaming wise like Clash Of Clans/Royal Revolt 2 and so on.. Purely for game and surfing and movies.. Is 9.7 a good catchy? As my Air 2 is cracked. Working well but just only comestic wise all crack. Asked at SLS and is almost $500 to repair front and back housing.
Forget about repairing. Just look at the refurbished Air 2 prices. 16GB Wifi $478. 16GB Cellular $618. Both options have 1 year warranty. Buy second hand 64GB with or without cellular and have remaining warranty will cost close to a refurbished 16GB.

The iPad Pro 9.7" has been confirmed to have the same amount of RAM as iPhone 6s/Plus which is 2GB.

9.7 iPad Pro has better overall spec than 12.7 inch

Better rear and front camera
4k video recording etc....
People rarely take photos with an iPad. If anyone wants full horsepower, 12.9" is the way to go. 9.7 pro feels like the platinum edition of Air 2..

Soon you'll see more people taking photos with their iPad Pro 9.7".

I am a Ipad fan but 2GB RAM probably does not justify upgrading from Air2 anymore. Ipad sales will continue to slide. I think Apple make a huge mistake on the specs of this version.

Apple has always been quite consistent with their products' specs. It is understandable that lesser RAM and slower processor will be found in the iPad Pro 9.7".

They need to segregate the product so people will have incentive to go for specific one. You want faster processor and more RAM, go for iPad 12.9". Want better camera and better screen, go for 9.7" then.

If you notice, all the Apple product line has been like that. From the MacBooks to the iPod last time.

Even then, user experience will be of top notch quality across all product lines. You won't normally see any differences in day-to-day use. More likely its psychology issue

Its more than a psychology issue, I have i7 desktop and i5 SP4 and have been playing around with iPAD Pro 12.9. My iPAD Air 2 just not as smooth as those.

Don't really care now, save myself $1,200 bucks, yeepee!

iPad Air 2 confirm won't be as smooth as iPad Pro 9.7" and 12.9" since it is using A8X processor as compared to A9X processor found on the iPad Pro.

I was so sure it was 4GB ram, now it confirmed to be just 2GB. Really sucks and not worth buying.

The camera on the iPad wont be as good as the one on iPhone. Even though it shares the same megapixels, im sure its not the same.

Just like iPad Air 2, the camera is not the same as the one in iPhone 6. Its a iPhone 4s or iPhone 5 camera.

I have Air 2 since released, I don't think I have ever taken any photo with it so the upgrade in Pro 9.7 camera is completely useless to me, I would rather have 4Gb of RAM.

Yeah that was what I thought. But then again, to each his own. I prefer taking photos with my iPhone. But the problem with the bigger ipad pro is that it is bigger. Hahaha.

I ever saw people used iPad to take photo while on holiday, somehow it just looked stupid because it's so BIG.

It's the same camera module for sure. Just wait for more reviews to confirm this.
