I am in the same boat as you. I have a gaming pc at home that can handle anything I throw at it and I'm wanting to get something portable. I just can't justify buying a laptop since I'm not in school anymore and my work doesn't involve me to use a laptop.I am going to pitch in here. I've been using the iPad pro as my main portable machine, adn I have a windows gaming machine both at work and at home. I use the iPad while out and about. And I love it. Ive not tried heavy production on the iPad pro yet, like video editing and heavy lightroom, but I really love the portability, the battery life and speed of the iPad pro.
I am at least thinking of going for a 256 ipad pro 10.5 as my main portable device.
Best Buy is discounting $500 off of 2016 Macbook M5 processor with 512GB storage. I'm tempting to return my 10.5 iPad Pro for it. Anyone cross shopped both and ended up with Macbook?
