    Just wondering which :apple: devices you guys have. I have an iPhone 4S, iPad 4, Apple TV, and no computer. My old desktop PC died a couple of weeks ago. The reason I ask is because I'm torn between an iPad and a rMBP. I bought an iPad 4th generation a little less than a week ago, and I'm having a hard time deciding whether I should keep it, or return it and buy a rMBP. Do any of you have all 3? (iPhone, iPad, MBP) and if so, do you use each equally or does one fall behind and make you wish you could still return it?

    Yeah. I was trying to see if I could do without a computer, and just use an iPad. I'm slowly realizing I was wrong to think that. The iPad is still amazing so I don't know if I should keep it AND buy a computer, or return the iPad and use that money towards a MBP.

    I have an iPad Mini, an iPhone 5, and a MacBook Air and they get equal use. But lately my iPad Mini has been getting more time.

    well think, do you really need a retina macbook pro? Can you do with getting one of these? http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/mac

    retina MB's are pretty expensive, so I would keep the iPad and get yourself a more affordable machine.

    An ipad is just not a substitute for a computer...If confronted with a choice, I'd buy a Mac and let the ipad go....Many people have tried to go down the ipad only route...It just isn't realistic.

    I have an iPhone 5, iPad 3 and rMBP. I use my iPhone and rMBP the most and the iPad 3 gets hardly used at all anymore except for reading books or surfing the internet when watching TV. My rMBP gets almost as good battery life as the iPad so I don't think I'd buy an iPad again at least for a few years.

    In the house (7 people) we have:
    3 iPhone 5's 64GB in use
    3 iPhone 4S's 32GB in use
    1 iPad 4's 64GB 4G in use (More coming soon)
    5 iPad 2's 64GB 3G in use
    2 15" rMBP in use (1 coming soon)
    3 15" MBP in use
    2 13" MBP in use
    1 Macbook Air in use
    2 iMac's 27" in use
    1 Mac Mini in use
    2 Time Capsule in use
    A bunch of our old MBP's, iPhones, iMacs, iPads, iPods currently not in use.

    Might seem like alot, but everyone has a laptop, iPad and iPhone. Between the iPad and MBP, I would definitely suggest the MBP every time.

    Me and gf each have an iPhone. Since getting the iPad, we began fighting over it every night. So I end up buying a rMBP, and then we were fighting over that and no one wants to use the iPad. So I would recommend getting the rMBP.

    Hi OP,

    I currently have the iPhone 5, original iPad and 11" MacBook Air 2012.

    My iPhone sees the most usage among all my devices. Simply because it is the only device I have with me all the time. I use it to chat, surf the web, check and response to mails/forums/social network, read books, listen to music, play games, take notes/pictures and a whole lot more.

    I use the IPad only on weekends, it acts as an electronic chord sheet when I am playing the guitar.

    My MacBook Air is there for work, photo and video editing, banging out long essays, watching movies, playing world of Warcraft, diablo 3 and Starcraft 2.

    Personally as an iPhone user, I would pick the Mac over an iPad. Hope that helps. #

    I have a Mac Pro for heavy workloads, though I'm looking to upgrade it whenever Apple releases a replacement, if ever.

    My MacBook Pro is my workhorse on the go; great computer.

    I have replaced by iPad 3 with an iPad mini; I like the portability, though I do wish Apple used a retina display, going from using the iPhone, the MacBook Pro, and the iPad 3 to the mini, everything looks a bit blurry for a few moments.

    And I have 2 iPhone 5s, one black, the other white, for travel and US-only, respectively.


    I would get a computer. The iPad is not a computer even though Apple wants you to believe it replaces one.
