Laurie once asked this question on Philofaxy: "If I had to get rid of all my Filofaxes except one, which one would I keep?" At that time, I couldn't choose between the pink pocket Baroque and personal antique rose Finchley.
This post will answer two questions. (1) Which is my favorite Filofax?, and (2) If I had to choose just one, which one would I keep?
To answer the 1st question . . .
I love my pink personal Baroque! It's a great size and color. I prefer the Personal as an everything-in Filo, and have never used an A5. The leather is soft and smooth outside with the famous inside embossing.

The inside front pocket has a very functional layout of pockets. The zipped pocket holds so much. I keep a flash drive and bluetooth device in there most times, it can even fit a pen/pencil and/or some sticky tags. The cards section is empty of cards because I keep those in my wallet. It only holds a bookmark at the moment.
At the back is a notepad slot which I prefer to a zipped pocket. -- I prefer the notepad to a zipped pocket in the inside back cover. And I love the capacity, it can hold so much. I can use it as both planner and purse/wallet if I choose to.

The Baroque and Malden in the personal size are very similar. They are my two favorite styles.
Going back to the subject title . . . I didn't have this Filofax when Laurie asked that question or I would have been able to respond right away. I felt I had to have both a pocket AND a personal to function properly because I also use a filofax as a purse/wallet. And, that's what I've been doing for a while now.
But if I had to choose just one, which one would I keep . . . ?
Having had a bit more time to mull it over, I can now say I can narrow it down to just one, and that would be the pink pocket Baroque.

"Why?", you may ask, after raving on about the personal size.
It's because the pocket is the easier to carry around. It will fit in most bags, and it can really handle my life if I'm careful with what I put in it. Also, not all my bags can handle a personal size (I have to rectify that situation).
And it's the pink Baroque that makes my heart sing!
And isn't that what's important in life? (:
