Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Pro. The performance impact is far less than I thought it would be. The heaviest lifting I do is raw photo editing and exporting, both of which are far smoother and a vastly better experience on the new iPad Pro. Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Pro. Just like the processor, Lightroom in particular needs as much memory as you can throw at it.
Of course there are 2 additional cores so in multi-core apps the difference will be noticeable. My hands tend to be pretty dry so that likely helps. Even mirrorless shooters, who have some possibilities of smaller and lighter kits, are interested in less heft and bulk in a laptop. The question is how much storage should a photographer configure in their 2018 MacBook Pro? For instance when watching Netflix, it is much easier to rewind using the pen. Yeah, well, if you're eating fries, chips or buttered popcorn and go for the screen ya gotta expect some smudges.
I've also used Lenovos and found them excellent machines as well. And to this end, the MacBook Air completely fits the bill. But if gou have the cash, why not? Want to control the volume, brighten your keyboard backlight, or spread your active windows out with Mission Control? It only shows its capability ceiling when you really put it to the test. And if you do end up having a maintenance problem, it's a rage-emoji-inducing to fix. And the Mac Mini, albeit great, comes up to the cost of the Macbook Pro when having to buy all the peripherals.
Where the new MacBook Pro does not fail to impress is in raw processing power power. But this keyboard finally feels refined. The Core six-core i9 chip has a clock speed of 2.

You'll just have to wait maybe an extra few seconds for the same task at that scale. You can install iCloud on Win 10 and I have, but didn't use it much, especially once I migrated away from Apple gear so removed it.
Your reasoning towards the i5 made my decision. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well. Other than the keyboard, there is absolutely no discernable physical difference between the current 15-inch MacBook Pro and the previous generation. So you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Heat is the enemy of computers and running a computer hot reduces the lifetime of the computer. And, dare I say, it even improves speed and accuracy those are actual Apple claims, but this keyboard has never performed as advertised, at least in my experience. Why is that an issue? It became too much trouble to keep picking it up, then putting it down to type, then pick it up, put it down again, up, down, up, down.
I much prefer to have a smaller, lighter, cheaper machine in the field and a faster machine on my desk, rather than getting a new, expensive MacBook Pro.

Performance tests are conducted using specific computer systems and reflect the approximate performance of MacBook Pro. Thoughts on the iPad method as a full replacement for a once in a while laptop user? Even for the open-minded, the butterfly keyboard takes some getting used to. The replacement MacBook jammed 3 or 4 months later, and my current MacBook Pro has jammed numerous times, only to be unjammed through some highly technical troubleshooting read: blowing pressurized air at the key. The new MacBook Pro is the first Apple laptop with a TrueTone display, a technology that automatically adjusts the color temperature of the screen based on the ambient light. I've got a stylus that works fine but don't like or need to use it. I think the iPad option for the workflow you mentioned might be a challenge too.
