Why I just bought a MacBook Air instead of the new Pro

Wandering a little OT here - but it's Saturday at el Reg.

There's something here that keeps puzzling me. Two devices, one, portable, with you and one not. Why the apparent reliance on a third "device", cloud storage to keep them in sync? They can be synced peer-to-peer once they're brought together. There's no need for the second device to be in sync when you're not using it so why the cloud intermediary.

The use case of two non-portable devices, say work and home desktops, I can understand but not the rest.
