    Hi,

    I am looking wether to get an iPad or MacBook Pro for personal/school. I have done some research on the topic, and I found the MacBook was better.

    Still deciding today, so do you mind sharing your thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    There's almost no meaningful overlap. If you need a computer, get the MBP. If you want a mobile entertainment device, get an iPad. Which is "better" will depend on the person and their needs.

    LOL, I read the title and had to wonder what on earth you were doing where either a MacBook Pro or iPad could be an option...

    Go for a Macbook, it's much easier to write documents and stuff like that.

    Don't get an iPad, it's only a content consumption device... for school etc. you'll need to create something.

    Your question is like;

    "Do I get a Honda Accord, or a bicycle"?

    This is pretty much a no-brainer. For school, get a laptop.
