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.

macOS vs iPad OS:

There are more apps compatible with macOS, while the app choices on iPad OS isn’t a lot especially since you can’t download apps from the internet on iPad.

On iPad OS, you can only sort your files in Files and images in Photos. Quite painful to be honest

On macOS, you can use Finder which is a lot better for general file moving, and also use apps Adobe Bridge to sort through things.

Big differences there.

I suggest that you get a MacBook Pro 13 inch.

Hope this helps
