Jon has written a good post about his personal experience using an iPad Pro as his main computer. What I like is, that he describes how he got there and since when and what else he tried. I see a lot of things similar to what he describes. I was totally tempted to do exactly what he says and skip a computer update and get an iPad Pro (or a Surface earlier and heard what he says about this way too often sadly).
