iPad Pro or MacBook for chemistry degree at uni?Watch
I’m hopefully going to be doing chemistry at uni in October and I was wondering if I should get a MacBook Air or an IPad Pro with Apple Pencil and a keyboard. The iPads have improved a lot and I’m thinking of the drawing aspect in chemistry. I just don’t know how it is to write essays on the iPad and if it can handle it/ if it can have the same apps as MacBook. Which would be the better purchase?
It is also the wrong time to be buying a MacBook, Apple are planning to move away from Intel processors and start using their own "Apple Silicon" processors instead, which will have big implications on the long term viability of the Macs they're currently selling.
Have you considered that for the price of the cheapest model of MacBook of £999, you could pick up an iPad of your preferred flavour for your drawing needs as well as a more powerful Windows laptop than the Mac would have been anyway?
