When it comes to display and camera quality, the iPad Pro beats the MacBook Air, and it has a much more versatile design that can be used as a laptop or tablet. However, for students, the areas where the MacBook Air outperforms the iPad Pro are even more significant.
Looking for a portable computer for the upcoming school year? You could be torn between Apple’s MacBook Air and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, both of which offer plenty of computing power in a stylish package. They also have some similarities in terms of specifications: both have a 13-inch screen and operate on Apple’s M1 processor.
However, there are significant distinctions between the two that you should consider before deciding, the most significant of which is the software that runs each machine. Each has its own set of strengths and weaknesses, but the MacBook Air performs admirably in the majority of the situations that matter most to students.

Apple iPad Pro vs. MacBook Air: Which is best?

While both have its advantages, for most students, the MacBook Air is the preferable choice. It may not have as much cutting-edge technology as the iPad Pro, but it does have a better typing experience, greater storage on the base model, an extra USB-C port, and, most crucially, multitasking software. Because of these benefits, it is a better option for general work and productivity. The MacBook Air is also far less expensive than an iPad Pro with Apple’s Magic Keyboard or even a decently priced third-party keyboard case.
