One Final Note

One Final Note

I’m well aware that numerous competitors will soon be offering up their version of a tablet device to compete with the Apple device, but the iPad is what was available at the time I made my purchase. But with the iPad being the only option right now, that’s also what makes this a perfect opportunity to investigate whether or not a tablet device can be a true laptop-killer.

So let’s delve deeper into this idea of replacing a laptop (or even a desktop) with the iPad. I’m not here to convince you that the iPad is the universe’s secret to solving all your problems and fulfilling all your computing needs–it’s not. What I am talking about is putting the iPad to the test: pushing its hardware and software, maybe incorporating a few creative workarounds here and there, and seeing what it can do. Because by figuring out what it can do, we’ll also have a fairly good idea of what it cannot do, at least until Apple chooses to upgrade the iPad’s capabilities or a competitor offers up a possible iPad-killer. (Laptop killer? iPad killer? Technology is a dirty business, isn’t it?)
