2020 MacBook Air vs iPad Pro – Which Should You BUY? | The Tech Chap



Laptop vs Tablet – which should you buy? I’m comparing the 2020 MacBook Air 13 vs iPad Pro 12.9 2020. With iPadOS & Magic Keyboard giving the iPad more laptop features – is the MBA still worth buying?

  1. If you have creative cloud, or you want to use the full functions of MS office, will you even make the ipad an option? I don't think the ipad is suitable for serious computing.

  2. For college would it be possible to type papers/essays with the iPad Pro? Also could you use a flash drive on the iPad Pro to save the papers/essays?

  3. I know nothing about computers. I don't have a laptop just now but I am thinking about a MacBook Air. I'm not using it for anything fancy, just casual stuff i.e YouTube, Netflix, online shopping, football manager etc etc. Will this i3 processor be fine for that? Thanks

    P.s the i5 processor is £300 more at £1299 in the UK than the i3 at £999, hence why I am hoping the i3 is fine!

  4. I’m going to be in uni in September, taking notes all day, and I love the idea of the Apple Pencil on a paperlike screen protector. I won’t need any special software for Kinesiology (my program) so I think that’ll be my choice

  5. 0:11 the question is what do you need a computer for?

    iPads are tablet computers NOT meant to replace everyone's laptop computers (even though they can be used for similar tasks)

    "Our goal with the iPad has always been to create a device so capable and so versatile, it can become whatever you want it to be. And that versatility is built on the power of TOUCH…And SOMETIMES, you may wanna type…" – Craig Federighi

  6. Super off topic questions – I love your collective Starbucks mugs! What city or country is your black and white one from? I’ve got one from Prague that same style and it’s my favorite! And also, what game are you playing at 02:41? Looks super fun!

  7. If the iPad can support
    1: two word documents side by side with mouse support.

    2: external display support for 16:9 (not just mirroring)

    I will happily sell my laptop

  8. Thank you for this video! I am in the process of buying my first MacBook Air or iPad, and I couldn't decided between them. I think I've made my decision and will be placing my order soon.
