Face ID on the iPad feels almost magical. It's a bigger upgrade than I expected, coming from last year's Pro. It feels very much like a futuristic laptop overall.

I’ve pretty much decided to replace my 2015 MacBook with a 12.9” iPad Pro, and Face ID is one of the big reasons. (I didn’t have an iPhone X but just got the XS and love Face ID so much I want it on my “computer” too.)

Unfortunately, I couldn't do that, as most of my work requires a Mac, but the new iPad Pro certainly is quite enjoyable.

Well, I have an easy “cheat” in that I have 2 Mac minis that I can easily VNC into, including 1 that I could put into “desktop mode” if I really had to… but the bottom line for me is that none of Apple’s current laptops make me think I’d be happy to have spent ~$2,000 on them.

Yeah, the current MacBook Pro lineup isn't great.

Yup! And the rest of the line isn’t much better! I’ve really enjoyed my 2015 12” MacBook, but the current MacBook needs to be updated. The MacBook Air looks nice but seems underpowered… and it has a fan. Having a laptop without a fan is really nice if you can do it. Frustrating.

I used to have an Air a few generations back, and it was pretty great, but I agree that the new ones seem underpowered (they otherwise look quite nice though).

Fan wouldn‘t bother me that much, as long as it doesn‘t run a lot. My iMac has a fan, but I hardly ever hear it.
