These days iPad got a lot to work upon where the Mac remains my home. Thus with a lot of muscle memory and force of habit; using Mac since the early 90s, it is hard for me making a move away.
Apple’s successor proposes the date to the MacBook Air—or the MacBook Heir, where my friend, Lex Friedman coined wittly it—with the 12-inch MacBook, appealed to me as a true replacement.

From the above sources taken from Macworld, a known fact is to conclude the topic which illustrates about iPad Pro and MacBook colliding the course over with its similarities and indifference.
