I think it really depends on your use case.

Do you really need the power of the M1 iPad Pro with its XDR display? Are you trying to use it as a laptop replacement or for media consumption?

In my opinion, unless you're using it for your profession, the Air should check the boxes for most.
Are you trying to get both an iPad and then a MBP?
06-17-2021 at 05:50 PM
That's my intention. I'd be using it for Universal Control and Side Car. As far as Pro features are concerned, I'm attracted to the 120hz for sketching, including Lidar for AR features. Procreate 5.2 is going to add painting for CAD files, which their page said would directly take advantage of the M1. I also would like to own this tablet for as long as possible, so M1 might help with extended support. My major is Radio Television and Film, and I'm looking to do the heavy lifting for editing on the M1X Macbook Pro. The Pro might be overkill for me, but center stage and AR seem very practical fot my production design work.

I was waiting for the MBP too but just bought the Air instead. Who knows how much it'll cost (some rumors say the MBP 13 will remain on th e lower end) and who knows when they will have sufficient volume since TSMC was on low production for the last few months due to the drought (new iphone gets priority on chip production). I would expect the new MBP in August at the earliest and maybe even November if chip shortagfes are as serious as they are for everyone else.

My machine is worth thousands in productivity to me every month so it's worth it in my case to buy a MBA now and sell it at a small loss to get the new MBP whenever it comes out comes out. Your case may be different.

my receipt shows the same... i did installment loan and have installments for both airpods and the ipad, it took the price of the airpods off the ipad... so ill bet if you return to apple they'd see it was part of a promotion but walmart/target/best buy might return without receipt for store credit? waiting for someone to chime in also.... would prefer not to try to sell on craigslist and get scammed/killed as i already have 2 pair of airpods....

Quote from hottie :
I am exactly going through the same thing, we went to the Apple Store to try out and see what works and now it depends what major your child is going to be in. We settled for iPad 11 Pro with Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil , this was more convenient but not cost effective. $1147 + tax (iPad Pro 11 128GB, Apple Pencil, Magic Keyboard, Airpods). My kid is majoring in biology as well.
Almost all medical students use iPad Pro 12.9 inch as it helps with split view specially when you are trying to understand anatomy as well as such functions. I was pretty old school note taker and just notes by one aspiring doctor changed my mind 3 years ago.

I think 11 inch should be fine too, and MacBook is secondary. I personally didn't liked ipad keyboard and prefer my cheap MB air. However if you want to avoid MacBook, I would prefer 12.9 as its keyboard and multitasking is closer to a 13 inch laptop.

They discount is applied to the MacBook. If you return it, you're still paying for the airpods. HOWEVER, because of this you can return the airpods and keep the discount on the MacBook. You get student discount and 160 off so pretty good deal for macs

have you done this? return the airpods at full price? if so did you go to the store or did it online with a custom rep?
I agree on the receipt it shows airpods at full price but not sure they will fall for it when they are actually returned. Thanks

I loaded my Amazon gift card on my account. Then I used it to buy the GC. You can try the apple email GC first. If that does not work, then try the physical GC to be mailed to you
