I never expected myself to replace my 2007 MacBook with the iPad Pro. In fact, I was all set to buy a 2020 MacBook and in the last moments, a lightbulb went off in my head. I really could use the IPad Pro as my primary computing device and inherit all the innovation I missed out on since being disappointed with my original iPad purchase in 2010.

The [[Apple Pencil]] is what makes this device shine - it feels great to explore handwriting and drawing again. I’m even learning to write Thai again 🙏🏼

1% of the time, I turn to my MacBook (click to see use cases)

Current config

I primarily use my iPad Pro as a “laptop replacement” - only turning to a MacBook for gaps (which should be filled by 2023)

iPadOS

Cons

my gripes are very far and in-between...
