My 2016 MacBook Pro had to go in for keyboard replacement #2 (they also replaced the battery and the display too, not sure why).
Anyway, this put me having only a 12.9 inch 2nd generation iPad as my only device for a few days.
Putting together a Keynote presentation was easy, maybe even more fun that using a Macbook.
Using Outlook for iOS to do email and calendaring worked really well. Grabbing and reading PDF’s and Word documents out of my Dropbox using the Files app also worked nicely.
I used the Magic keyboard for typing and that worked well. Love that keyboard.
The Not so Good
Grading papers for an online class was not as easy, and was in fact painful. Downloading a paper and then putting the answer key side by side was not smooth and easy like the Macbook is. For some reason I have trouble getting the side by side to work the first time for me. Navigation in Blackboard was more difficult for some reason as well. I use quick keys on the MacBook for easy window management and miss this on the iPad.
I use Alfred for my text snippets and found myself typing in the shortcuts for various things like date stamp and signature that weren’t there.
Also needed to go into our document management site to approve contracts. No browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome) would scroll the page to get to the submit button. (Yes, I requested desktop site). I had to load Citrix and get to it that way.
Guess I’ll have to hang onto this MacBook Pro, and am glad Apple keeps repairing it without charging me.
