In 2017, the personal computing device to buy isn’t a lightweight laptop, it’s a tablet. The switch happened in 2015 and 2016 — with the Microsoft Surface and Lenovo Yoga Book reaching full proficiency and the iPad Pro coming to market. But in 2017, the tech-savvy and the everyman should grab those thin slates and aspire to full tablet integration.
For the past month, I’ve played with four different computing sources: a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro and iPad 2. I’m entrenched in Apple’s ecosystem, and operating inside Apple was my best shot at converting to tablet in the hours outside of the office. And, eventually, I did. But it took more than a week (or two).
