    My old MacBook Pro just died (she was 11 years old).
    I am a graphic designer that has cut way back on what I do, but I still want to be able to use the software I've purchased in recent years on whatever I buy next, so I can keep my skills somewhat sharp.
    Would an iPad pro 128gb be able to run Adobe Creative Suite and Office for Mac? Will I be able to do what I was able to do on my MacBook Pro on a lesser scale?
    I just don't want to buy another bulky laptop, but I do want to be able to work with photos a lot with Photoshop, create ads and print graphics with InDesign, and download book creation software, etc, and pull in many of the photos I'd backed up to an external hard drive before the big crash happened last month.
    I also have to get into using cloud storage, which I don't quite get just yet.
    Thanks for any help you can offer!

    IMHO a MacBook Pro user cannot readily replace a MacBook Pro with an iPad Pro. Not yet. I would zero in on a MacBook Pro, as that's the device most likely able to run your old software.
