Hi, I am a geology student at university, heading into my second year this September. I currently own: base 21" iMac (2012), base 13" Retina MBP (2013), and an iPad 2. I use the iMac when I'm working in my dorm, and the macbook for taking notes when I'm out on campus. The iPad 2 is very rarely used, but this is because it's now very slow; apps lag and the screen just is not great compared to my macbook (I use that in its place for watching Netflix etc in bed). Having done one year of university like this, I have come to realise that this setup (as cool as it is with features such as handoff and iCloud) is ridiculously excessive. As such, going in to my second year, I am wanting to reduce the number of devices I own, so it's more manageable and streamlined. In terms of what I need to do with my devices: Web Browsing, PDF reading, using Office/iWork, very occasional light gaming (mostly Minecraft every few weeks or so), Watching video (iTunes/Netflix), some video conversion [.mkv to .mp4] every now and again (using Handbrake). Ideally I'd like the thing I take to lectures to be as portable as possible. In lectures, the most I do is browse the web, read PDFs and type/write up notes. Below, I have outlined some ideas I've got for next year's setup. I'll be using Apple's Student discount from their online store. • Sell both iMac and Macbook Pro, get 15" Macbook Pro (either buy now, OR wait until Skylake [probably preferred] when it arrives). • Sell both iMac and Macbook Pro, get 27" Retina iMac + iPad Air 2 (my local store currently has a great trade-in deal on iPads that I could use). • Sell both iMac and Macbook Pro, get Macbook + PS4 for gaming. If you've got any other ideas, or think that some of mine are cataclysmically bad, feel free to add your thoughts in the comments. Which option do you think would suit me best? Thanks for the help.
