MacbookPro vs iPad Pro?

Quick question... My MacBook died this morning. I am an assistant Pastor and use my MacBook and Logos software for preaching preparation and study. Trying to decide if I should replace my laptop with an iPad Pro. Is the current or Beta App sufficient to act as a replacement for the Desktop version? Curious what you all think before I spend a lot of money.

Hello! I have a question about using the software search, but I can't see how to add a new post

I can't speak regarding the ipad app, but For Manny I'll suggest you proceed to the General forum, and at the top look for the Write a new post label. 

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Replace your laptop bro.  The iPad is the same as a phone app.  It don't even come close to how you can use logos on a computer.  The logos on a computer is a software program where as the app is ok only an app and lacks a lot of functionality.    

In the long run you are better to just buy a new computer.  Could even go windows as long as it had an SSD and 8 GB

of RAM you're good.

The mobile apps are called “reader apps” by FL. Some users have switched to iPad only, but I would not recommend it. 

OSX & iOS | Logs |  Install

Depends on features used in desktop application: for me, the answer is No (as mobile app currently cannot do visual filter highlighting)

Knowing Apple Silicon models are coming soon => Rumors of Apple Silicon Chips? (included iPad Pro speculation) would be inclined for inexpensive usable Mac purchase now. Other World Computing offers used Mac models (search for Retina finds 17 MacBook Pro models today) => https://eshop.macsales.com/search/?q=retina&filter.dimension_model_97=MacBook%20Pro&filter.catidpath=4160&sort.price=asc and Apple offers refurbished Mac models => https://www.apple.com/shop/refurbished/mac

Keep Smiling Smile

Thanks all. Good feedback. You are right - I really need a desktop or laptop for research and sermon prep. I already have a 24” LG 5K Mac compatible monitor, so I’m going to order a MacBook Air. Terrible timing with the new models coming out soon - but I need to get back to (prep) work now. I could always do the (bad) thing and “hand down“ the Air to my wife when the new model arrives. Confused

The current Air is half the price of my 2016 15” MacBook Pro, and appears to have comparable performance. The lighter weight should also Make it more portable. I’ll provide an update once I have Logos installed. Not worried about performance as past testing has shown the SSD to be most important for Logos.

Thanks again.
