Hello, In a bit of a torn situation here. I currently have an early/mid 2013 Macbook Pro 13" retina i5/256/8 Its in absolutely pristine condition, and is as flawless as the day I bought it (no marks, scratches, etc). I tested 3 for IR before coming away with this one, so ive gone through trouble to get it (but I know its never gonna last forever anyway). And still has applecare until 2016 I think I can get upwards of £1k for it. Which would ensure I can replace my broken camera, get an ipad, and have enough to go on holiday this year. I also don't appear to be using the MBP to its full potential. And most of all, I HAVE to keep it in my sight, always. Its almost become a burden having to carry it everywhere and baby it like a child. Im thinking perhaps an ipad (atleast for now) would be a liberating replacement.. IF i can fulfill my needs with it. However, here is my dilemma.. Here are my uses so far this year, and for atleast the forseeable future: - Web browsing - PHOTO EDITING - RAW processing ability would be ideal, however the replacement X100 ill be buying comes out with beautiful jpegs regardless - Watching/streaming movies - Also, can I stream movies to TV with it? (use HDMI with the rMBP to TV) - Excel/Numbers use (pretty much essential) - I can mostly store my files & photos to cloud/dropbox so I dont have to use much storage really. plus it would encourage me to shoot jpeg instead of relying on post processing of pictures. I'll mostly be using it during downtime in work or home, tethered to my mobile phone wifi in work (this is possible?) As you can see, no real heavy lifting here. But it must be able to handle the above tasks atleast until I buy a new MBP next year. Im swinging back and fourth every day it seems. I would love to free myself of the burden of having to carry round my shoulder bag with the Macbook in it, in favour of a nice slim folder sized ipad. Would the iPad Air be a sufficient replacement for the above? Has anyone successfully swapped the Macbook Pro retina in favour of an ipad?
