Apple recently announced the new and larger iPad, Pro which many in the tech community are considering a direct competitor to the Microsoft Windows Surface Pro 3. With Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 available soon, is this a new battleground for Apple and Microsoft? Which of these devices makes more sense for lawyers in their personal or professional lives?

In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell examine the features of these new devices, leverage Tom’s expertise on both platforms, and help listeners determine which choice might make the most sense for them.

Topics include:

  • Hardware versus ecosystem competitions
  • Which platform app developers are interested in
  • iPad Pro as a productivity tool over content consumption
  • Which is best for heavy Microsoft Office users
  • Screen size, Stylus/Pencil, keyboards
  • Price points
  • The use for artists, architects, doctors, and musicians over lawyers
  • Side-by-side apps and litigation
  • iPad Pro or Microsoft Windows Surface Pro in small and big law firms
  • Are Dennis or Tom going to buy one?

In the second half of the podcast, the hosts talk through Dennis’ recent decision to purchase the newest MacBook after a crisis in confidence pushed him to consider the Air or Pro instead. As always, stay tuned for Parting Shots: that one tip, website, or observation you can use the second the podcast ends.
