First of all I am long time die hard Mac fan but lately I have been thinking about getting a Windows machine, mainly the Surface Pro 4. Specifically I'm looking at the 8gb, 256 i5 for $1200 new. Why am I even looking the Microsoft Surface Pro 4? I'm a serious photographer who takes about two or three one week vacations a year usually to national parks. I would like to be able to preview, do some light editing, and backup my photographs while in the field. Plus I love the idea of sitting on the couch at home using a pencil to edit my photos. Backing up images in the field - I don't know of a good way on an iPad Pro to do this. I want to be able to connect an external SSD drive and backup all my raw files. Preview and editing - It would be nice to use the desktop version of apps instead of the scaled down mobile versions. I keep hearing that the new iPad Pro has desktop class cpu performance. However what I don’t see is desktop class apps. I would probably only use the Surface Pro 4 for my photography needs while traveling. At home I would still use my iMac. Am I crazy to even consider the Surface Pro 4? If you have a Surface Pro what do you think of using it inside the Apple ecosystem?
