Hoping someone with similar experience can help me a little. I currently have a 2012 Retina MacBook Pro 15 which is always in clamshell on my desk + a 12" iPP I've decided to sell the RMBP, but I now have to decide what to go for next. Small back story: I live and study in Brussels 10 months in the year, 2 months I stay with my parents in Switzerland and travel. I would ideally just get rid of my MacBook, but I realise for stuff like my music library, a Mac is basically essential (iCloud music library is active, but I worry if I loose the MacBook it'll just delete my files). The 12" iPP is a dream for me, and I just bought the keyboard today. But sometimes for portability, I'd like to have the 9,7 available to travel (lightness etc) So the big decision! Do I go and buy a 2016 rMB to go stick in a dock with lots of adopters, but then be able to take with me for 2 months. This would be the top-range 1,3 Or Do I get a Mac Mini (after WWDC)(already have screen and keyboard and mouse), and lots of cables I can hide in the desk. And then buy a 9,7 iPP with left-overs. Then just try to work around 2 months a year on iOS only. Cost wise, I purchase in Switzerland so it's basically the same give or take 100$ What do I use the Mac for: Torrents (can this be done on iPad?) Occasional iMovie (iPad can do this) Managing PDFs Occasional printing to PDF (iPad?) Music Library (some non-Apple music stuff, or what's left after Apple Music obliterated half of my library!). What do you guys think? First world problems I know, but considering this would be for the next 2 years, I find it a big choice to decide between a laptop or desktop/iPad combo. Feel free to select a poll or offer comments and tips.
