So here's the skinny, Since I graduated from my masters degree program (Master of Architecture) at the end of April I've turned on my 17" mbp two maybe three times. I honestly haven't turned it on since the first week of june . this is because I have a mac pro and obviously use it instead as I am not traveling to school and working there. So this brings me to the thought that hey, I keep using my ipod touch 4G to do surfing and reading at home, maybe I should sell my mbp and get an ipad and cash. I am in the architecture biz and could see an ipad as a nice platform to take blueprints to construction sites or show video walkthroughs/pictures to clients in a handheld way, and possibly as a mobile sketchbook; so I can almost justify it and I think i could sell my mbp (early 2009, 2.66ghz, 8gb ram 500gb hd for now, [could up it to the 750 I have laying around], one year applecare left, one minor cosmetic dent and a case) to get a 64mb ipad 2 pretty easy. So does it make sense? or does popular opinion say keep the mbp and just boot it up from time to time to play pong or something?
