Hey guys, I'm currently deciding on how to go forward. My situation is the following: I have an iPad Air 2, a 2009 MacBook Pro 15" which I'm only using for office stuff nowadays, and a quad-core Mac Mini I'm using for work (at my office, I'm using a 5k iMac anyway, but there's tons of freelance work to do which I can't do at the office). My applications are mainly photography and graphic design, with a few video edits thrown in now and then. While the Mac Mini is still surprisingly powerful, I want to have the option to work on the go again. Working with brushes in Capture One, Photoshop, Affinity Photo and co. with the trackpad is possible, but less than ideal. Designing logos and especially handwritten text is even less ideal. Even PDF markups aren't perfect with a trackpad and a finger. So I thought, why not simply use a stylus? Now, here's the problem: Apple still doesn't support the Apple Pencil on the huge trackpad on the MacBook Pro, and I don't get it. Using a capacitive stylus gives a sub par result, with very low precision and very few pressure levels. Using an external drawing tablet would work, but that means bringing an additional device, which is not ideal either. Buying an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil would be another option. But there are three problems with that option: 1. It's another device I'd have to bring with me at all times too. 2. Having to constantly send files back and forth between the Mac and the iPad is a hassle, even if it's super fast via AirDrop. 3. I already have an iPad Air 2, which does everything I want it to, except pen input, so I don't really want to spend €840 just to get one additional feature. Using an iPad Pro for all the work instead of the MacBook Pro also doesn't work -- without Final Cut Pro X, Capture One Pro 10, Adobe InDesign, Affinity Designer and some other pieces of software, I can't work at all. Buying a Surface Pro might be an option as well. But apart from having to use Windows 10 in that case (and I really want to avoid that), there are no quad core CPU options, and the dual core i7 chips are borderline for editing large photos or videos. So, do you have any idea what could be a solution? I really would love to have the 15" MacBook Pro with that huge trackpad and Apple Pencil support, but since that won't happen, I'd greatly appreciate if you knew any alternative to that setup. Edit: Just took a closer look at the Surface Book, since the concept seems like the solution. But damn, just 2 GB VRAM and Dual Core CPUs at a price point north of €3000? Also, it's thicker and just as big and heavy as the 15" MacBook Pro, while offering a smaller screen and less performance - doesn't look as great as I thought on a second look.
