iPad Pro: Can it replace your road warrior MacBook?
Is the new iPad Pro a MacBook replacement, asks Daniel Kestenholz of Theme. He looks at it from a photographer’s point of view and, frankly, this is one of the main reasons I cannot work solely from an iPad. Also, in my case, I really need OS X for Macfilos. Sure, an iPad can do maybe 90 percent of my work, but it is the processing of photographs, in particular RAW files, and in creating web page layouts for Macfilos that holds me back.
Daniel reaches more or less the same conclusion but he is probably rather keener than me to consider the iPad as a road warrior. He gives it the benefit of the doubt:
…..using the iPad Pro as a photographer’s tool is more about attitude and approach, and less about hardware and software capabilities. You will be able to find your ways — and develop new ways, with the likelihood of making traditional ways redundant over time. No, the iPad Pro is no toy. Yes, it is an oversized iPhone. And that’s a great device, a device one can adapt to. So down the road, there may be no need for OS X.
