I know this comes as no surprise to most on this forum, and I know, too, that this is a "first world" problem, but problems are relative, of course, and I'd like you guys to chime with advice if you have it. I have a problem: at the moment, I am so distracted by the Apple 9.7" Pro that it feels much like an addiction. I am a writer by profession, and I keep telling myself that my Dell XPS 13" (2015)--a beautiful, beautiful laptop--does everything the "Pro" can do and much more, and that the iPad is really a consumption device for media--not a workhorse. Then I vacillate to feeling a "need" for the product because, somehow, I rationalize that the pencil and digital notes might up my productivity merely by having that option. This is, of course, nonsense. I have an Air 1 that's plagued by phantom touches. I know what the problem is, and if I could put a few pieces of a certain type of tape on a small part of the digitizer, all would be fine. When the Air works, it works well, and that is yet another reason why my desire to buy the Pro is so frustrating, especially since the Air technical issues have precluded me from using the device to its furthest potential. And guess what? I haven't missed all that much (but I have missed it!). This is an Apple forum--I know that and respect it--but what do some of you guys do to battle this intense desire to purchase the latest and greatest? I know that Apple banks on these sorts of vacillations, and damn it, I don't want to give in. When a company has this much mindshare, it feels less like "hey, I'd like to have this product" and more like a neurosis.
