I often see discussions about replacing a Mac with an iPad but they are always MacBook vs iPad pro. I have a 2017 iPad which is great to take on a plane, has a folio keyboard which is great to type on, is faster than my iMac writing iMovie projects to .mp4. It’s perfect for writing, web work, photo editing.
I’m always surprised when people don’t actually compare the basic iPad with the MacBook for those thinking of switching, with the price as the dealbreaker e.g. you could get an iPad and an Apple Watch for the price of an iPad Pro.
The 2020 iPad is £329 (can use Pencil 1 although I’m not a pencil user). iPad Pro is £769.
If you were recommending an iPad why might you recommend the iPad pro for the average user, compared with the iPad at less than half the price?
