Hello everyone, It's time for me to switch on apple products. I am Graphic Design student and freelance Web Designer. Currently I have weak ACER 5742Z laptop and 27" Dell U2711 Monitor at home. I want to lose my laptop and buy 2 apple products to get complete work station both for quality and portable. The main question is it enough to buy iPad for portability or do I need a MacBook Pro? This is few combinations I came up with (give your opinion which works the best): 1. iMac + iPad. Pros: good quality at home with iMac, easy to take iPad with me everywhere, can use iPad as portfolio to show works for clients. Cons: I can work with design only at home. I need to sell my Dell monitor. 2. MacBook Pro 15" + current Dell monitor Pros: Save money buying only 1 apple product, take advantage of Retina display performance, can work out in cafes with MBP. Cons: 15" MBP is too big and heavy for portability. 3. MacMini + Dell monitor + iPad Pros: Use my monitor and save some money. Advantage of iPad portability. Cons: Not sure about Dell vs Mac screen quality, what is it worth, because I need good quality for design work. Please let me know your opinion on these choices and help me decide which one to choose.
