I finally figured out the best way to use this as an actual laptop replacement to the point I rarely even open my MBP anymore. We picked up (hubby and I) a WD My Passport Wireless Pro 4 TB drive. It uses WiFi either on its own when no network is present or as NAS. It's super easy to set up too. At home we leave it plugged in. When out, it has a 10 hour battery which can also as an added bonus charge your phone or iPad! It also has built in SD and USB slots to transfer files easily. And I mean it's easy. You have option that it can automatically transfer the files when the SD or USB stick are plugged in, or you can do it manually with the button on the drive. We are both now using An app called File Browser which puts everything in on one place. ICloud files, Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox etc plus it works with NAS and standalone wireless storage devices. You can copy paste move etc between ALL different types of storage. All apps have share option and FB comes up in the apps list. So you can save directly to File Browser to any location including the My Passport drive. File management solved! I have been testing this now for a week and it's working awesome! The drive is small enough to fit in a large pocket and Starbucks is no issue. 4 TB wireless portable storage is no joke! https://www.wdc.com/products/portable-storage/my-passport-wireless-pro.html#WDBSMT0040BBK-NESN https://www.stratospherix.com/products/filebrowser/ Just wanted to share because I remember a lot of people on here complaining about reliable and easy way to manage files on iPad as being a reason it could never be their laptop replacement.
