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. In Part 1, the discussion starts with Apple’s timing in releasing these devices, then digs deep into the Mac mini, who it is for, and why it is a better value in some circumstances than other Macs. 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.
