Aside from email and web, I've got four key tasks for an iPad that occupy about 80% of my use time: reading ebooks, reading comics (in ComiXology), writing in Scrivener, and marking up page proof PDFs (currently using GoodReader, looking for a better app)...
...So to summarize: If you have to get just one iPad, get the 9.7" Pro. (If on a budget, get the iPad Air 2; it's nearly as good, and fits the same form factor.) If you don't consume comics/visual media and don't need to check page proofs but move around a lot, get the iPad Mini 4. If you're a lawyer or have a job that requires you to work with lots of A4 or American Letter documents in PDF format, or if you're really serious about feeding your comics habit, get the 12.9" iPad Pro.

Design is beautiful, it really looks like a small Macbook (check the pictures), it's built in aluminium (some keyboards are lighter, but it's okay with around 500 grams), it has backlights and typing is really like on a small Apple keyboard.

Everything out there seems to want emulate the typing experience on a MacBook; this is fine, unfortunately I tend to make more typing errors on the newer version of the MacBook than on traditional mechanical keyboard.
I use a Belkin
