Hi All, happy new year (god my head hurts).

My new year's res is a new ipad Air 2, but I'm holding off at the moment due to the rumour Apple might bring out a larger iPad, which I have always wanted, and is feesible now they are so much lighter.

What have people heard?, what do people think about the chances of us seeing a larger screen iPad in 2015?

Nah, you are then getting into some serious $$ as well as, look how the Surface Pro is doing . . . . I really cant see Apple doing this, and i think they are on a good wicket where they are now with their Tablets. Not for me thanks !!

Yes, from ipad 1 I thought..."Great device, wish it was a little bigger".... and that hasn't changed. I'd fork out the $1389 for an 11" ipad 'Max'. (that price speculation maybe wishful thinking)

Don'lt get me wrong, i would really love to see a bigger iPad, for the success of Apple, BUT, I can only see a bigger iPad, being used n a stand/case of sorts, and more for the Graphic Artist, and/or for business's. Its not ever going to be aimed at the every day Joe Blow. Its not a tablet that will be heldup for reading or things like that. I went looking r this rumor, and it goes back to 2013, and nothing has arisen as yet. Ill believe it, when i see it.

Cannot see it, how's the hangover?

I think a larger screen sort of distracts you, I like the size now, small and compact....

WWDC, Yep I agree, Ken, your hearing is stuffed ( we know this because Ken went to see AC/DC on the weekend, but it was the Fijian Brass band goes live) and now your eyes are failing......what are you going to be walking around with your iMac next Posted Image
