For students who bought the 12.9", does it really help you with your school workshops or tasks regardless your major being related to art or design? Or does it serve more as your overpowered fancy Netflix gadget? I took a semester break and am coming back to college this fall, I'm a finance major and I don't know if it's going to involve a lot of note-taking or Excel works. but the question is, does it serve you well as a more portable Macbook for your works? I'm talking about Word, Excel, and PPT. Apps like Evernote or Notability catch my interest, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to optimize it enough to justify the price of a $1000 gadget. Since I've never used a tablet for school, I can't really tell and might need some feedbacks and reviews to at least have a bit of an idea Note: I have the latest 15" rMBP but I find it too heavy to carry everywhere, it's kinda big as well so I'm thinking about carrying a productive iPad with me to class or coffee shops.
