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.

For longer trips that don't require me to carry all my gear around with me, I like the combination of my M1 MacBook Air and a 10" iPad. The iPad comes along for non-photo casual use and also to serve as a second screen, via macOS' Sidecar feature, for my MBA, roughly doubling my available screen real estate when I'm working on the latter.
