“There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not the iPad Pro can replace your Mac as a primary device,” Jim Dalrymple writes for The Loop. “I think the simply answer to that question is, yes, it can.

Those that surf the web, check email and social networks, and other touch oriented tasks where the iPad excels,” Dalrymple writes. “There are those that can do complex tasks on iPad and use it as an everyday computer. This number is growing all the time.”

“I’m not suggesting the iPad isn’t powerful, because it is. The iPad Pro is more powerful than most of the PCs on the market today. What I am saying is that if you truly want an iPad to replace your Mac, it can,” Dalrymple writes. “However, I just don’t think we are there yet.”
