Hello All, If this is the wrong thread I apologize. I anticipate that I will begin taking IT/IST classes soon and I am currently enrolled in Treehouse's Web Design program online. My current set up is a sluggish 2013 MacBook Air (base model 11") that I use with an external display, and a 2017 iPad. I mostly use the iPad for media consumption for the time being and use the laptop for my courses, as well as light tasks including working with google sheets, pages, photo editing and browsing the web. I was considering replacing both with a recent model mbp, but was discouraged for two reasons. Firstly, the cost for a decently spec'd pro is prohibitive (15" with 16GB of ram and 256GB of storage would be my minimum, $2k+). Secondly, I've been turned off by all of the negative press the recent mbps have received. The combo of an iPad and a desktop mac is appealing to me for the sake of modularity and being able to upgrade/replace each individual device without scrapping the whole set up. Plus the apple pencil paired with an iPad sounds ideal for note taking as well as drawing and designing for recreation. I'm currently considering purchasing the 11" iPad Pro and mac mini. The combo of the base models undercut the MacBook pro by hundreds of dollars. It seems apple is very invested in the future of the iPad and though I realize it can't totally replace the mac os experience, I'm confident that its usability will only improve as time goes on. I'm wondering if others have experience with this combination and how it has worked out for them so far?
