I've been traveling with a 15" MBP (mid-2015) which is in need of retirement. I also carry an even older iPad mini which largely serves as a giant iPod at this point. I do a fair amount of post in LR and PS on the MBP while traveling and use a portable SSD to backup on the go, reconciling all via GoodSync to a Mac mini M1 each time I return home. I am trying to become a bit more agile (i.e., lighten my carryon bag) going forward. Has anyone who travels frequently migrated from carrying a MBP down to only an iPad Pro? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I tried it; still not there for me.

Managing photo files, esp raw, on the iPad was a bit cumbersome, and I find Lr on iPadOS to be inadequate for my needs. Was OK to review shots, and some edits, but so lacking in other areas that it wasn't worth it for me. YMMV.

I'd take a hard look at the software you need; that will probably make it or break it.
