“The iPad Pro isn’t a viable replacement for a computer for folks who need to run power intensive programs or who need to run lots of apps simultaneously. Still, both it and the 12-inch MacBook are solid choices as secondary computers,” Dennis Sellers writes for Apple World Today. “So, assuming you want a second computer to complement your main Mac, which should you choose?”

For some time, I’ve been using a MacBook to do my Apple World Today work when I occasionally travel and my iPad Air 2 is always close at hand,” Sellers writes. “Or WAS always close at hand. It and my MacBook will probably be replaced with an iPad Pro. This means one less gadget in my life. The super-sized tablet does work as a reasonable laptop replacement despite the limitations previously mentioned — and it’s the best iPad ever though it may be oversized for some people.”
