So, I've been having kind of a crisis of conscience lately regarding my new iPad. I have a mac pro that I use purely for photoshop work and an old Macbook Pro from 2008 that I use to run my business, basically just to create estimates and invoices, archive financial documents, and for everyday web browsing on the slow days. I got an iPad Mini about a week ago with the intention of it eventually replacing my MBP. I like the idea of having an ultra-portable tablet that I can take to client meetings and use to show off my portfolio and run my business, but the more I work with it the more I'm disappointed by it's limited usability. The bidding/billing software that I use on my MBP (Blinkbid) doesn't have an iPad app, so I'd have to either keep the MBP and use another billing software on the iPad while keeping it all in sync manually, or just switch to another billing software all together, which I really don't want to do. Even if I did get rid of the MBP, I can't really keep any kind of files other than PDF's on the iPad. I'd be forced to use my Mac Pro, which isn't an option, or just get another computer to run my business from. Basically, if I keep the iPad and get rid of the MBP, I'm going to have to get another computer to run my business anyway. All I've used the iPad for is web browsing and playing angry birds when I feel like distracting myself from work, and I can't see any other use for it in the future. Is there anyone out there who can convince me that an iPad is a viable replacement for a Macbook Pro?
