Question

In the market for a new laptop or tablet?

I currently have a HP Envy 13inch laptop. Its falling apart on me and would like to upgrade to the latest trend of tech. I definitely like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet because of how replaces the laptop genre but its too expensive. Also, I really like the Ipad Pro 12inch and use to have a MacBook Pro but I'm afraid that I can't use it like a laptop. I need help with deciding what to choose or if there's a better replace for both of them. Any ideas?

It will take a lot to discuss iPad as a laptop use.

The iPad use as a primary device has moved forward a lot but for me I can get more out of laptops.

I have an iPad mini which I added a keyboard case to. It's like a mini PC now with obvious limitations but it does great for on the go, light use.

Set your budget.
Think about what you want to do with the machine and the features you want.
Go shopping.
