Apple’s latest iPads are different. Not only can you get work done on them; in many ways they’re productivity dream machines. Today’s iPads are powered by custom-designed processors that are faster than the chips on some of the Macs Apple makes, and the iPad’s separately sold keyboard is better and more durable than the accursed, falling-apart mess of a keyboard that Apple is shipping on its much-maligned current line of laptops.
I know this isn’t true of everyone - but it’s true for some of us. I’ve spent the majority of the day working on my iPad, without even considering reaching for the MacBook Pro.
