Asking The Right Question

Careful what the question is, because that pretty much always defines the answer.

In recent Apple blogs a lot of questions have been asked as to whether an iPadPro can replace your MacBook (Pro). It seems we have been asking the wrong question. Fraser turns it around and asks whether you can replace your iPad Pro with a MacBook (Pro). You shouldn’t be surprised by the outcome, but some snippets to tickle your taste buds.

The fact that the keyboard and screen are limited to being held in an L-shaped configuration seriously limits its flexibility. It is basically impossible to use a MacBook pro while standing up and downright dangerous to use when walking around.


No MacBook Pro offers a four-speaker configuration built into it’s body. This can put a bit of a dampener on your enjoyment of movies and TV shows as the sound is far thinner with less bass and richness than the iPad Pro can deliver.


You are also limited to landscape orientation of the screen, which makes reading books and browsing longer websites an exercise in frustrated scrolling.


You have to commit to a specific keyboard layout and language from the factory that can never be changed.
