As reported by the foreign media on July 18, with the official launch of the M2 version of MacBook Air, users who have pre-ordered have been receiving the new machine one after another. The Mac series that once seemed “irrelevant” seems to be more “powerful” than ever. But what happened to the iPad line, which was once expected to be productive? In this regard, three senior digital editors shared their feelings.
First, a digital editor named Daniel said that while the product positioning of the new MacBook Pro had been questioned back in the fall of last year. But now it seems that with the improvements in mainstream laptops and the increasingly macOS-like iPadOS, the line between these products seems to have become more blurred. However, in terms of real-world usage scenarios, there is still a clear gap between the two products.
The next digital editor, who is pondering whether to buy the new MacBook Air or the “iPad+keyboard,” said that although the MacBook line has been improved in recent years, it still does not have a touch screen like other brands. iPad has gradually converged to a laptop in recent years. The iPad has gradually converged to a laptop in recent years. However, as the iPad continues to enrich its functions, its price is also getting higher. Although in terms of functionality is not fully comparable to a laptop, but the price is infinitely closer to a laptop.
Finally, a digital editor named Scott said that buying M2 MacBook Air as a personal laptop upgrade is a good choice. He believes that the iPad is not a complete replacement for laptops at this stage. Although within 2022, the iPad will achieve more about productivity through the optimization of the system, but it must be admitted that the gap between iPad and MacBook is still obvious.
Regarding the news of the new iPad Pro, it was previously reported that Apple is expected to launch the new product in this fall. It is reported that this product is likely to be equipped with the latest version of the M2 chip. However, the improvement in productivity will still be limited to the iPadOS aspect. The industry believes that the boundaries between Mac products and iPad products are currently approaching infinitely, but it is still difficult to choose how to choose in the end. The reason for this is that Apple’s solution still seems to be a “simultaneous purchase”, but this is obviously unreasonable.
