This week my "Sweet TEK" (pick of the week) was my new mobile work setup which includes the all new iPad Pro 12.9” with the Smart Keyboard Folio case and the Apple Pencil 2.

Since the iPhone restore I mentioned in the episode before last, I have moved forward with my quest to do more with less. Yes, I have given up the MacBook Pro as my main productivity machine and moved to the more modern and mobile way of computing. That’s right. I’m now officially in the “iPad is a Computer” camp. I’m not 100% iPad, but I’m pretty close with the MacBook now doing a small fraction of the work I was needing it to do before. Now some of this perception (and new found passion) is due to me unloading some non-essential busy-work from my todo list. But the main reason, I have been able to convert to the iPad as my main machine is because I changed my mindset. I’ve now been witness to the wonders of the iPad, and I’m looking forward to a more intimate relationship with this device as I get more comfortable and the iPad becomes more capable.

Are you a longtime Mac user tempted to switch machines? I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.
