Pondered for a couple of weeks if I could replace my MacBook with an iPad. I have a retina MacBook and an iPad Air 2. Today I scrolled through some threads and read up on people using the 12.9 more than the 9.7 when it comes to daily usage as a Mac substitute. Also saw the thread with people's amazing drawings done on iPad Pros. That was enough for me to commit to the transition this evening. I can safely say it cannot replace my MacBook for everything. College classes require flash for some internet homework assignments, I like to have iTunes back ups to manage devices as well as managing my large collection of music. However, I still sold both devices to cover the majority cost of my 12.9 Pro. I don't regret it. I'll be getting a cheap used MacBook soon to maintain the things I mentioned earlier and for the most part I do my homework at school before I go home. The apple keyboard is wonderful and I'm looking forward to becoming best friends with Apple Pencil and Procreate. Just thought I'd share my short experience thus far since I gained so much from everyone's input in other threads.
