All I have is a laptop, so you definitely need one!
When I had a job, my work computer was a laptop, which doubled as my personal computer. This avoided the pain of copying files. If I wanted to do personal stuff at work, or work stuff at home, easy peasy. This setup lasted from the earlier PowerBooks to Windows-based laptops 10 years later. When I joined a startup, I bought my own laptop, which doubled as my work computer.
My phone lives in the car, usually in airplane mode, and is only used for voice and SMS. Yeah, I know. I should legally add -saurus to my name.
This kind of happened to me awhile back. My sons laptop died. I had a butt kicker 2 in 1 travel laptop that I loved. I gave it to him because I didn't really 'need' it. I have a work 2 in 1 but I always before tried to keep work stuff on work stuff and personal stuff on personal stuff. With the work lappy now. I have an SD card (256gb) that I put all my personal stuff on. and the work stuff is well on the harddrive. It works for me. but I found a Samsung S7 Tablet and I freaking love that thing for consuming cat videos on the interwebs.
Funny thing is. I absolutely refused to ever go to bookedFace on the new tablet. I dont' want that virus infecting it. I will go there on my work lappy on occasion. But not on the tablet. It stays pristine. Also, I have RDP, and VPN setup on the tablet. I can actually do my full job from that tablet. Seriously. It is so nice.
To err is human to really elephant it up you need a computer
I see MacBook and I run in the opposite direction ... but "Air" ... (smell without flaming punk) ... have you ever tried to replace burned out capacitors using a soldering iron and a few YouTube video tutorials?
Might save some money in the long run. Waste of time if you lack dexterity.
