Apple MacBook Air

Michael has an old iPad 2 and is looking to upgrade it. He also wants to get a MacBook. Which is best for him? Jason says that the iPad Pro is more expensive but it supports the Apple Pencil and and external keyboard. They still sell the older models, including the iPad Air 2, though. They're $100 cheaper than a year ago.

As for the MacBook, the word on the street is that MacBook Pros will be updated at the end of the month. So if he wants a higher end Mac laptop, then he can choose that. They also recently updated the MacBook Air, so he can go with that or the Retina MacBook. It's a good idea to wait and see what happens, though.
