I bought a Refurbished 1st gen iPad Air to take with me while traveling. I didn't want to lug around my 'ships anchor' heavy 2008 MacBook Pro again, besides, it's aging and starting to have issues. I've never owned an iPad before. Shockingly (to me), I'm finding an iPad is plenty fast enough for my apps, searching the net, getting mail etc, etc, and so far, pretty much doing everything that I was using my MBP for. Now I'm thinking, this is just an older 1st gen Air, the upcoming iPad Pro with it's reported A9 chip, much larger Retina screen, USB C/Thunderbolt and much larger storage is going to be light years even better. I've been waiting to spend 2-$3,000 on a new MBP thinking it's what I need, but maybe I should save $2,000 and move on to the iPad Pro instead. Some MB or MBP users utilize all the power their laptops provide, but now I wonder how many actually 'need' an expensive high powered laptop but instead, like me, don't realize that an iPad can be so great? Now I'm reading everything I can about the iPad Pro, can't wait!
