I don’t use my iPad Pro IN PLACE OF my MacBook Pro…but rather IN ADDITION to it (and my iPhone).
Different device serve different tasks in my life. My iPhone takes care of streaming music, taking photos, most of my text messaging and obviously, my phone calls.
My iPad gets more tasks such as reading, mobile image or video editing, storing downloaded media due to its larger storage capability, mobile document management and email, etc.
Then my Mac gets…well EVERYTHING you do on a home computer. All of my Adobe desktop apps, Microsoft Office, advanced email and document management, budgets, finance, taxes, etc.
Is there some overlapping capability? Sure. But I don’r really care. I enjoy the convenience of the different form factors in different situations.
I could read a ebook on Kindle on either my iPhone or my Mac…but the size and form factor of my iPad make it the most optimally suited for me personally.
But hey, to each their own. Apple makes enough different devices to allow you to customize you tech world as you see fit for your lifestyle. If an iPad doesn’t fit in your life, no problem…just don’t get one.
We all have unique lives and circumstances.
