Although Apple is still committed to replace our laptops for an iPad Pro and are getting closer to achieving it, the reality is that some people are still reluctant to this transition ... it is true that perhaps it is a matter of giving it a chance, because we know that the iPad Pro is a real bug in terms of power and its screen is truly impressive.
But despite the almost perfection of the iPad Pro and its wonderful synchronization with iOS 11, we still find weaknesses and outstanding absences that make us think twice when making the leap and continue trusting in our beloved laptop, which today they are authentic laptops in terms of dimensions and weight.
Yes, I know that the iPad Pro has an A10X processor, which is smaller and more powerful than ever in terms of device technology. I also know that iOS is optimized to work perfectly with Apple chips, but even so, if we open the hood of any laptop the same price of an iPad Pro we will see that in terms of RAM or processor, we will find something more powerful. That is the raw and undeniable reality.
Maybe the use you make of your laptop is surfing the internet and the office, in that case you might get to understand that you migrate to an iPad Pro, but at the moment in which your profession involves an intensive retouching of photographs, the digital edition , the calculation of structures or 3D design or simply an advanced use of Excel, you fall short. It does not matter that there are millions of Apps in the App Store, there is nothing that has the possibilities of Auto CAD, Photoshop or Excel for computer.
The same happens if you are a gamer: although there is a wide catalog in the App Store, the main games that exist for PC platform are not going to find them, and if they exist, the version will be much more light.
I never tire of saying it, how much does it cost to put a mouse? If I have to spend 8 hours to be in front of a computer, its touch screen is fine, but for work there is nothing like a mouse. Android already allows it, so we do not understand that Apple has not taken the step yet.
Repair and updates
Suppose that one day you detect that your laptop is a little short in terms of RAM or storage, what do you do? If you are a little handyman, you know that buying a RAM or an SSD disk and mounting it is quite affordable, as could be said of a thorough cleaning of its interior. However, this is unimaginable on an iPad ... where we have no choice but to go to the technical service for any failure or simply assume that we have fallen short and go thinking of buying another.
Let's face it: the iPad Pro is a wonder, but it's not cheap. For those almost one thousand dollars you can buy laptops that comply with the previous sections. You could think of forgiving them if the cost were much lower, but we insist, they are almost a thousand dollars and that weighs.
