My hubby just bought an iPad Pro to replace his ageing laptop. I bought a new Mac book over a year (to keep my 2 now retired Mac book pros company). Have used it twice. If the iPad pro was out at the time I would have bought it instead.The new 12.9 IPad Pro is pretty much a laptop.
Still have my G4 power book (I think that’s what it’s called). 2003 vintage lol. Funny thing is it still runs well and is still smaller and lighter than most current pc laptops on the market. Problem with me is that I struggle to navigate a pc.If you can only buy one, then buy a laptop. The only one that thinks an iPad is a viable laptop replacement is Apple. (And I am 100% Apple and have been since the Classic.)
You look at things with an iPad. You create things with a computer.
I think you made the right choice. I have a desktop to do more serious and intensive work. A tablet for everything else.Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. Considering I have a new Mac desktop to turn to if this laptop fails Im going to give the iPad Pro a shot. There are lots of things that I like about it and I get tired of lugging this laptop around. Considering I don't really type anything (I peck) and my biggest task is this forum. I did consider the bigger iPad 12.9" but the 10.5" seems to be the sweet spot for how I plan to use it. Apple gave me a nice little discount (veteran and student). To top it off they agreed to a 30 return vs a 15 day!
Device will be here tomorrow so I will update in 2-3 weeks...cheers!
