iPad mini speakers vs Macbook Pro 13-inch


Does anybody here have both devices?

I am wondering which has the better speaker? I am disappointed with Macbook Pro's speakers being distorted at certain volumes/sounds.

I previously owned an iPad 2 but didn't own the macbook so couldn't compare at the time.

Which is best for say skype?

I have an Air, which I can only imagine having worse speakers than the thicker and roomier MBP, and the Air sounds significantly better than the iPad mini. That said, the mini sounds pretty darn good for something that's half as thick as my pointer finger.

As far as Skype, which is more convenient for you to use. The complaints about the speaker are more for music than speaking. Both should be sufficiently loud to hold a conversation.
