If you had to choose just one, which would you choose and why?

iPad.

They switched our laptops to Chromebooks. I absolutely hate it. I feel really limited on what I can do. And I hate using Google docs. It feels like taking a step back in time by how limited the features are.

iPad. But then I love my Apple products! I hated the Chromebooks we had at school. I've had iPads since they came out and I think I'm on my 5th one (iPad Pro). I use it for so many things. I do still have an iMac which I use if I have to type a lot, which is not often now that I'm retired. Once that dies, I won't replace it. I might get a MacBook, but it would be in addition to, not in place of my iPad. I'd rather give up my phone than my iPad!

I love my iPad. I've never had a Chromebook before, but I had another tablet before the iPad and the iPad is far superior. I use it many times a day. It may cost a bit more but worth every penny, in my opinion.

I have a personal MacBook, an iPad, and a chromebook through work. My chromebook never gets touched unless I'm absolutely forced to.

iPad

I have an iPad, a Kindle Fire, a Chromebook, and a laptop.

The iPad has so many app options, and it is really easy to carry with me.

We got Chromebooks at work this year, and I really only use mine when I have to go somewhere that I need to type a lot. It is portable and has a good battery life. That's about all I can say for it.

I am not a Chromebook fan. I prefer using an iPad.
