I have had the iPad Pro 10.5 for about 2 years now and was thinking about getting the MacBook Air.
I already have a keyboard for my iPad.
Is it worth getting a MacBook?

Do you regularly sit there with your iPad and keyboard and think "wow, I really wish I had an actual laptop for this job instead"?

Then yeah, you might benefit from having one. If you don't, you obviously won't.

Jesus, you already own the thing. Just think for yourself a little bit.

Whilst I do like the Apple OS, I wouldn’t buy a MacBook.

What would you be using it for?

Thanks for your opinion. Not much need for the unnecessary rudeness but, thanks either way

Very simple stuff. Just the Microsoft packages like excel, word etc.

Do you have a Laptop/PC already? If you do, I don’t really see any benefit to getting a MacBook Air if it’s pretty much just for MS (especially as the windows version of this is better imo).

I’ve not been impressed with the MBA’s I’ve dealt with, and there are definitely better alternatives.

No, I don’t have a laptop anymore. I had a MacBook but this was about 5-6 years ago and to be honest, it wasn’t the best machine ever (and I know things have significantly changed). Is the air a bad model in particular or are MacBooks not great in general anymore?

MacBooks look great and generally work great (I think we had some 2012 models that still work fine), but for the price and what you intend to use it for I don’t think they’re worth it.
