Eyes get worse with aging … that made me buy a 12.9" pro. It has also got more real estate for my fingers and it just feels right for me. I don’t need to zoom in/out often. I fear that with the smaller screen I would have had more twiddling going on
If you plan to work with a decent sample library, samplers, and to create much HD audio material, get enough SSD capacity … 128 GB or more is better.
Using that pencil of the pro is a joy too
