Currently, I am using a mid-2014 15" Retina MacBook Pro and the machine is great. That said, I kind of resent the amount of money it cost and the lack of portability. I am always nervous carrying it around and afraid it will get bumped, dropped, stolen, etc. It's not a $1000 machine, it's a $3,000 machine. I am thinking of selling the MBP (and taking the monetary hit) and rotating into either a Retina MacBook or waiting for the new iPad Pro. Here is what I like, and what I don't like about each. Retina MacBook: - Concerned about the speed and battery life of the computer. Worried that both have been too compromised in the name of lightness. - Like the lightness, lack of ports, and love the retina display. - Wish it came in a 14" size with longer battery life. - I like that it runs full OS X. - I prefer the iPad Pro format for walking around, using it at airports, restaurants, etc. I never liked using a laptop on my lap. An iPad always felt more natural while "out and about". - Excellent portability, but I feel like it might be too small and too slow. For its size, I would rather carry around an iPad Pro. MacBook Pro: - Advantage: already have it, money is sunk. - No Force-Touch trackpad - Plenty of power, storage, etc. - Too heavy and I am always concerned about "bumping" into things, sliding it around, etc. For the money I spent on it, I am just really not at ease carrying it around. For what it's worth, I would never buy a 13" MacBook Pro. - Too small for using in a permanent desk configuration. Too small for a desk, too big for portability. Ugh. - I like that it runs full OS X. - Wonderful computer, but portability is frustrating and I am disappointed in the amount of money I spent on it. iPad Pro: - Beautiful display, wonderful size. - Perfect for carrying around, flipping it open to google something quickly, etc. It is the king in terms of portability. - Big disadvantage: does not run full OS X. There is not much I need from full OS X, although I am concerned about document and file storage. There's iCloud Drive, but I am still not 100% sold on it. Am I just being crazy here? Should I just keep what I have and forget about the MacBook and iPad? I do not want to have multiple devices. I have no need for an iPad if I have a MacBook and no need for a MacBook if I have a MacBook Pro. I guess it is a case of buyers remorse (a year later), but I am not really sure what I would buy if I did not have anything. What should I do?
