please list pros and cons to tablet vs laptop so I can work this out. TIA
If it's just for fun, get the Air. If you need to do work, get the MacBook.
do you want a toy or a real computer?
if you are only going to either have 1 tablet or 1 laptop, go with the laptop.
if you already have a decent laptop, go with the ipad air.
my gf uses her ipad, and now her ipad air, as her main computer-type thing. i couldn't do that. if i had to choose just one it would be the macbook pro.
Why do you feel the need to get either?
before i can vote i need to know if whichever you choose will be your only "computer".
you can get a more powerful PC for the price of that Macbook
Keepin up with the Jonses?
but it will be a pain in the ass and be loaded with malware and be outdated in 2 years. the macbook pro is good for 6 years, minumum. minimum.
I have a iMac I use when I'm at home, in my office. I have a work ipad and laptop that I only use for work. Then I have an ipad with Retina that I use when I'm mobile.
The problem I have is when I travel, the ipad doesn't let me watch sports from websites because I can't get a compatible player to watch them. Also, I find typing on a ipad a pain in the ass. On the flip side, when I travel, I have to take my work ipad, and carrying a laptop also in my carry on is kind of a pain. On the plus for the ipad, is if I'm reading in bed, the ipad is easier to read my kindle books than on a laptop.
If I hook up a bluetooth keyboard to my ipad (which I have but never use) then I may as well have a laptop.
this has been a conundrum for me in the last 3 years. I have switched back and forth several times now
macbook pro. or get a macbook air. i saw one of last years models on closeout for like $800.
I will never buy a PC. I have one for work and it sucks shit. My GF has one and it constantly gives her
Mo offense. Don't want this to turn into a PC vs Mac thread. I'm a mac guy since 2002
depends upon what you plan to do with either machine. i've taken my macbook and ipad on trips and never used the macbook. at home i use my mac pro for 99% of my tasks.
I had a macbook Air but then switched to the ipad. This new macbook pro looks cool.
I just want to take one of them on trips because I need to bring my work ipad and sometimes laptop with me too
my Dell is 3 years old and isn't outdated; 8GB memory, i7 processor, SSD, etc.
plenty of free anti-malware solutions too
I like the Macbook but for the money you can get better performance from a PC based laptop
