MacVoices #20103: Peter Cohen on the new Mac mini, iPad Pro, and MacBook Air (Part 2)

In the second part of our discussion of new Apple hardware with Peter Cohen, we turn to the inevitable question of whether the iPad can replace a Mac laptop, and if it can, should it? Peter has some thoughts, and then looks at the new MacBook Air, what might be the best general use laptop (or even Mac overall) for us all.

MacVoices #20102: Peter Cohen on the new Mac mini, iPad Pro, and MacBook Air (Part 1)

Apple’s latest hardware releases go under the microscope in our discussion with Peter Cohen.

Then, Peter tells us why the new iPad Pro is a game changer for so many people, and the one place he doesn’t want to see it in use.
