iPad Pro vs. Surface Go/Pro for a student and 3D modelling
I’m trying to decide whether to go with the coming iPad Pro or a Surface Go/Pro.
I’m a student who will mainly be using the device for notes, pdfs, ebooks and likely. As I see it, iPad is better in terms of battery life, tablet experience and processing power compared to the Go. What pulls me in direction of the Surface is primarily the ability to run the full version of Office. As a student I use quite a lot of time in OneNote and Word. I’m not worried about OneNote as my notes are quite simple. In Word on the other hand, my documents are pretty long with a lot of figures and academic references which I manage with EndNote. How is the iPad version of Word? Would you write long papers on the iPad and are there any reference managers for the iPad that integrates with Word? Furthermore I like the Surface Keyboard more than the Smart Keyboard but I guess I can live with it or find something third party.
In my spare time, I use many hours on my hobby: 3D Modelling and 3D Printing. On my Mac I work in Fusion360. This is where I really hope that the iPad Pro can get rid of any competition. Watching artists work on the iPad Pro with the pencil I really hope that there is an Autodesk Fusion360-ish alternative that can compete with the desktop alternative. Do you guys have any experience with 3D modelling on the iPad Pro?
Any other thoughts on my decision?
Thank you very much!
