    Default iPad Pro vs Macbook Pro

    I am on the fence on what to get an iPad Pro or a MacBook. I mainly do very light work, emails, internet, some videos, and Microsoft Office. Anyone recommend either and why.

    A rMBP, it'll be more useful and powerful.

    If you already own a Mac, then I'd recommend an iPad for media consumption and light work.

    I recommend a computer for the heavy lifting, and an iPad Pro for the light, on-the-go work. Personally, I used the iPad Air 2 during my daily commute and while I'm at work . I already have to lug a heavy windows laptop with me for my job, so it isn't feasible to carry that an my Macbook Pro everywhere. iPad's are light and you can do a lot with them.

    I wish I could get there but there are a few things that send me back to the computer. I'm 80% of the way.

    Historically I'd recommend the MacBook Pro but I recently got an iPad Pro and it's awesome. There are still some minor things that I need my MacBook for (simply because I'm too lazy to migrate to an iOS solution) but I'm using my iPad probably 95% of the time.

    Use both devices each has its own uses for me.
