Surprise. It’s easier for an iPad Pro to be a Mac than a Mac to be a tablet. David Gewirtz:
I run a number of development systems and local Linux stacks on my Macs, and that’s just not possible on an iPad.
Also not typical of 99.99-percent of Mac users.
I also value the screen real estate my dual 38-inch and 27-inch display array provides, especially for editing in Final Cut Pro X — also not available on the iPad.
Now we’re down to 99.9-percent of Mac users.
An iPad Pro with a USB-C port is a different animal.
That’s what Isaac Mosna, an advertising student at Ontario College of Art and Design University and YouTube content producer, set out to show off. He put together an iPad desktop build that accomplishes many of the goals we outlined back in 2011.
