Just got back from Apple store, the iPad pro-2018 display makes the Macbook Air look poor. The iPad display pops! If Apple allowed mouse support on iPad then they'd have my money. I'm using an iPad on a keyboard like a laptop but I've got to lift my arm constantly to interact with the software! Dumb!

I think you should declare what you do that made you make the decision to stick with the "AIR". I think it depends on what you do, if your looking on potential based on raw hardware. The AIR is very much an overpriced laptop, the iPAD Pro makes a very compelling argument for ditching your laptop for full iOS usage.  Apple did not do this by accident. They know that, from a consumer perspective, these two products compete with each other. I mean look at the MacBook vs the MacBook AIR. There's no real reason there should be both of those machines, the weight/thickness different is so small it would have no real effect on the users lifestyle. They stated in the beginning of their presentation that the tablet space is overtaking the entire laptop market. For most users who don't game/edit video/designer a laptop doesn't really need much power. It needs more power efficiency! Tablets offer great versatility in terms of a mobile products with great productivity potential, take that with quick sync with smart phones and your at the foundation of great productivity environment. What I like about the iPad Pro is what it offers creatives in terms of design/art flexibility. You pair that with the apple pencil and it give WACOM a run for its money. For the price of one of their high end desktop tablets, I can get an entire workstation set up. Of course there always going to be a market for the higher tier texture artist/3d designers who might need a dedicated desktop setup. But the pool is getting smaller as more and more tablets start reaching the middle/high tier design industry. I think ultimately they might replace OS X and go full iOS eventually. Its a much better landscape for them in terms of having a captive audience. What I liked about OS X was how open it is in terms of software support. Most cool pieces of software were very affordable on OS X if not completely free, its only recently with introduction of the App Store that the software situation on OS X has turned a bit sour. Great overview overall. I would have stated what are your lifestyle/productivity uses prior to making the decision. If you doing IT work/Network management then I can see why you would stay on OS X. But to be honest, looking at how low power the MacBook AIR is, I doubt it could go beyond photoshop...maybe 1080p video editing on limited occasion with no motion/after effects work. Its just seems that what a MacBook AIR can do...well a dell can do just as well.

Thanks for this! I’m about to get the iPad and wondered if I should opt for the Air. My ultimate decision may be different though. If iOS and OS X were to merge in a couple of years, which of these would suffer the most obsolescence? With all that horsepower, I think I’ll get the iPad for the next several years (JUST lost my iPad 2 to a failed antenna!) and save up for the new Mini for a desktop machine! :)

While I appreciate the opinion here, I wish reviewers would stop telling me what’s a “real operating system” and what isn’t. If you’re productive and get everything done with iOS then that’s the real operating system. I mean, do reviewers tell people, to get a “real car” if someone drives a subcompact. It gets them to where they’re going. I know I’m being snarky, but it’s this trend I see over and over with iOS vs MacOS, especially when a new product is announced. If iOS came out before MacOS, we’d all be complaining MacOS doesn’t behave like a real operating system. /rant over.

+Boris Bengin if you can do what you need to do on an iPad then for sure buy an iPad! It's just not a fleshed out system for most professionals. iOS is extremely limited. It's not a matter of perception but complete fact. It doesn't make it bad, just unusable for most. Again. If it works for you then enjoy.

I disagree. If someone can do what they need with say Auria (instead of Logic Pro) doesn’t it stand to reason that’s the real OS to the user? I get it. People have this top down perception of operating systems. More MUST be better! But who exactly set that standard? I love the fact I can use something like AUM or a killer synth in a handheld touch powerful tablet. It gets me where I need to go, even if it’s not the “Cadillac” of operating systems.

In America subcompacts are definitely NOT real cars. Even more so in metro Detroit. People are hard on iOS because its designed for smartphones and very limited in it's current state. If they can port over logic pro though i'll be sold.

Right now I would never recommend an Ipad Pro over Macbook Air, especially for students. The apps are just not there yet and the typing experience is far worse than the butterfly keyboards on the Air or Pro. The raw power is impressive and it's a beautiful device but for students and professionals there are far superior machines.

It's not just apple overpricing their stuff. I have a surface pro that's 1 year old and its obsolete already, overheats like crazy and is useless as a tablet.

Open pdf on split screen with word document on each device. Try to type the text from pdf on empty word document. Then after writing save files on internal storage. Good luck ;)

What are the things that you cannot do on the tablet as opposed to the laptop? Please list some things. Also once you identify these things perhaps you can suggest or attempt to find alternatives. What I mean to say is third-party apps excetera that can be used to fill the gap. I've been told many times that Android is lacking and windows is better I own a surface laptop and it's maxed out I bought it last year and I still find I prefer doing things on my phone. I prefer Google two windows. Most of the things I do are spreadsheets, reports, administrative type work... I get so frustrated with my Windows machine because it can't even open it PDF unless I download some particular thing and when I create content inside of windows I like have to jailbreak it to use it other places. Windows has become very much like Apple. It can be very frustrating when you get a bunch of PDFs in your email for other types of files and Windows decides to not play nice. I find that when I'm on my Android phone many more things feel accessible. If I do have to download an app chances are it's free and on top of that everything is just easier and faster. I feel like an old person when I'm on my Windows machine... These days it feels like using the phone book.

Microsoft Edge can open PDFs natively, you don't need to download another app. If you bought the Surface Laptop from last year, you might want to take it out of S mode (maybe this is why you find it so limited?) Here are some things you can't do on the iPad vs a laptop: - No mouse/cursor support, which is often more precise than touch input - Can't connect external hard drives - SD cards will only read photo files - You are still restricted to iOS - you can't even change default apps - You are restricted to mobile browsers and apps - you can't download anything you want straight from the internet, and some websites will redirect you to install the app, which means you don't get all of the features - No proper file manager Think the ipad is great if it's a secondary device and you have a laptop/desktop for full functionality, and it's definitely an exciting look into the future of mobile computing. But as a primary/only computer I think you're still making lots of compromises and will be looking for workarounds. Don't think that's worth it considering the price.
