    Dear colleagues! I am searching for one device for everyday work. I am working with tons of emails and different types of docs (Word, Excel, PP, Acrobat, etc.). What can You suggest to buy? MacBook Air or Pro vs iPad Pro 12.9? What are Pros and Cons?
    I have iMac at home and Windows PC in the office, but I have realized, that I’m always out of office and home, work “on the road”.
    Now I am using the iPhone XS Max with smart battery case, but seems for me, that I need bigger screen to be more productive.

    MacBook, much easier to work on Word Excel etc. I use my iPad Pro for media consumption, web and email. I sometimes use it to take notes during a meeting but I am much more efficient on a MacBook.

    I don't have an iPad myself, but with lots of typing for emails and handling Office applications, I expect that a laptop will serve you far better than a tablet.

    It's really personal preference. For me, Macbook no contest largely because of the keyboard. By the time you mess around with an add-on keyboard to the iPad it's just not worth it IMO, and typing on the screen is dire.
