I am wondering who uses either of these setups and how it works for them. Do you like the iPad mini + MacBook setup, or iPad Air and desktop Mac setup? What works for you and why?
Nice! The MB is definitely like an iPad in terms of its smaller form factor; I could see lying in bed with it no problems.
My MacBook Air (13) also serves as my main machine for desktop stuff. I find it the perfect size for any thing I need to do in a desktop environment. I'm still thinking the iPad mini may fit better with my MBA and iPhone 6, cause like I've mentioned before I mainly use my iPad for either reading and studying my textbooks or browsing the web and watching YouTube in bed, and the smaller mini form factor seems to make more sense in this case. If I really want a big screen I have the MBA.I use the macbook air and ipad mini. It's a great combination for me. The macbook air is for serious work and anything requiring desktop apps. The mini is for reading, gps, and e-mail/Internet on the go. I don't really need a desktop machine, and carry the macbook to work every day in a bag.
That is true; oftentimes it's best to just pick which size you like best for each device and enjoy them in their different use cases.I have a rmbp 15", iPhone 6s and iPad mini 4. One doesn't really affect the other and all are based on individual use cases.
I don't like the form factor of the iPad Air, so i went with a mini, so gave my iPad2 to my mother.
i had an iMac, but needed the portability of a laptop for work so gave it to my mother.
I don't like an iPhone 6s + in my pocket so normal,iPhone.
