Our friends at Apple, at least via Amazon have listened to the voices of reason and reduced, yes lowered the price of the MacBook Air 13 Inch 2019 Model, down to under $1000 dollars, priced at $999. Buy here on Amazon.
This is the newest model with the retina display, the 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Corei5 with 128GB, available in gold, silver or space gray. In other words, the entry-level model that will work for 80-90% of all the people out there, including bloggers such as myself is on a fantastic sale today. Buy here on Amazon.
While the new iPads are great, for most people they still won’t work as your primary machine. Now I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford a laptop AND a $700 or $1000 tablet on top of that. The 6th generation iPad is still a great deal however and at $250 on Amazon, it is affordable to get a laptop and an iPad. Buy the 6th Generation i-pad 9.7 here on Amazon.
Of course, your needs might be way different than mine, you might be a professional photographer or videographer and have to do a lot of editing. Or you may be an accountant with huge Excel spreadsheets, in which case I would not recommend either device. But for the remainder of us, my first go to device would be the 2019 MacBook Air 13 inch Buy the Air here on Amazon, and my second would be the 6th generation iPad. Buy the 6th Generation i-pad 9.7 here on Amazon. For just a little bit more the form factor of the updated 2019 iPad mini with the 64 GB would also make a great second device. Buy the mini here on Amazon.
