For a College Student: iPad Pro w/ Applr Pencil or a Refurbished MacBook Pro
So for the last couple of years I have wanted a MacBook to complete the ecosystem with my iPhone, Apple Watch &Airpods. I have been using a decent HP from Costco for a while now but my dad always promised to get me a MacBook if I got into a good college. I have now committed to Cal Poly SLO and my dad is following through on his promise.
However recently I have noticed a lot of videos on the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and how good it is to take notes on. I have seriously been thinking about getting one of these for College instead of a MacBook Pro. I am not a super hard core user but my only concerns are with typing long essays and multitasking (which I know the iPad has gotten good with). Would love to get the community’s feedback on the better option.
alternatively I could get a refurbished MacBook Pro from Apple a basic iPad 9.7 (about $250 when it goes on Sale). any thoughts on this too?
