DON’T DO IT!! M2 iPad Pro vs M2 MacBook Air

Don’t make the same mistake a lot of potential buyers make. The new iPad Pro and MacBook Pro – both rock the M2 chip. And while there is a lot of overlap in terms of capabilities – there are some very specific reasons why one is better than the other. So let’s talk about the price of both devices, which is more portable, and the display quality. What about the typing experience on the M2 ipad Pro and the M2 MacBook Air – which is better? We’ll compare the camera and speakers, processing power and multitasking. And finally we’ll see how battery life, the ports and wireless connectivity stack up. So which is better? The M2 iPad Pro or the M2 MacBook Air?

    Please keep in mind that prices advertised in Europe already include all taxes, unlike pricing in the States (if I'm not mistaken).

    Great comparison, but what's with the video title?! Don't do what? What "same mistakes" do customers do?! You explained the differences very well, but the title of the video is just unnecessary clickbait making the premise of the video undone 🙁

    In Hungary a 8/256GB M2 MB Air is 600K HUF, a 12.9 M2 Ipad Pro with 256GB and keyboard is 900K HUF. For my kind of work (IT tech), I would prefer MB Air.

    (An average salary is about 3-400K HUF)

    Here in Germany the iPad Pro 12.9 costs 1450€ and the MacBook Air costs 1500€ I think

    In my opinion it’s really expensive but I really want one for school. I hope I can get it somewhere else cheaper

    Do prices in US Apple Store have tax included? I’m asking because entry level M2 MacBook Air costs in Poland 6999 PLN, with current exchange rate it’s something around 1600 USD tax included. Custom duty is not an issue because AFAIK it’s 0 for laptops.

    Good comparison video for many of us who want to make this decision.

    You didn't really mention file handling. Moving and copying files on/to/from an iPad is more difficult and less reliable than on a MacBook Air.

    I've run the M1 Air / M1 iPad Pro since M1 came out and, as a combo, incredibly useful for business work. Can't say it's a one or other type deal, I reached for each depending on the case. Since then I have upgraded to the M2 laptop but have kept the M1 iPad pro as I don't see any reason to upgrade the iPad. I'm sure I'll be reaching for one or the other again, for the next couple years, depending on the use case.

    I love those backgrounds that you have in the intros of the devices. Where did you get them?

    The prices in Portugal are ridiculous!
    M2 iPad Pro 12''9 128 GB: 1479€
    M2 Macbook Air base model: 1 529€
    If you take into account how badly people are paid in this country you will be terrified. PS: I know it is not the worst-case scenario, but in the European scenario I believe it is one of the worst, as the average salary is 1378€.

    I have an M2 mba and iPad7 but I still find myself using my old iPad more. I just like the touchscreen and Apple Pencil. I sometimes use them in a desk setup with an external monitor with the help of universal control and I use my Mac to type (some shortcuts are not supported on the iPad) and my iPad is used for referencing info, handwriting and brainstorming.

    I also prefer bringing my iPad out with an external keyboard and mouse. (My iPad is too old for Magic Keyboard)

    Prices are ridiculous in Poland. M2 Air starts at 7k in the official Apple store, 7.1k for the M2 iPad pro 12''. That's way more than average salary per month. With like 50% inflation, I'm weeping and hugging my 2012 MacBook Pro, because once again I will be unable to upgrade this year…

  15. DB

    Would really love to hear your rundown and opinions on the newly announced M2/ M2 Pro chip/ Max chip Macbook Pros, Mac Minis etc. Are they worth the price and worth getting now?

    In Canada the Air starts at $400 more than the iPad Pro

    As much as I love my MacBook Pro, Apple Music works way better in IOS. I keep hoping that Apple will update the macOS to fix this. The big difference is that iOS has bit perfect playback and macOS doesn’t. This will only matter to a small number of Mac users but i am one of them 😊

  18. Rasmus

    I live in Denmark and here the 12.9 inch starts at 1605 US and 2101 US with the Magic Keyboard 🥹

    Money is no problem but the iPad’s Magic Keyboard has no business being by that expensive, and I have one. I’d like to see what about it makes it $350… lol
