2018 iPad Pro versus 2020 M1 MacBook Pro

April 21, 2021, rob-ART morgan, mad scientist

Since the upcoming 2021 iPad Pro has the M1 processor, we decided to do a shootout between the 2020 M1 MacBook Pro and the 2018 iPad Pro Gen 3.

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

We plan to order the M1 iPad Pro on April 30th, but since the M1 MacBook Pro uses the same processor, we decided to post this shootout between the M1 MacBook Pro and the iPad Pro Gen 3 (2018).

Once we have our hands on the M1 iPad Pro, we will re-run the same tests and publish them. We expect the results will be similar to the M1 MacBook Pro.
