My boss wants to know if he could possibly benefit from having an iPad for business trips. He'd like something small and light weight so that's the reason we're looking into the iPad. I have to be honest and say that he's a very intelligent person but not overly tech savvy and not likely to invest a lot of time in learning how to run one of these machines. Once he does learn how to do something he usually just sticks with that product/method because he doesn't like to invest a lot of time into learning new technology.
Here's what he wants to use the iPad for:
Exchange Email (he's accustomed to using Outlook)
Remote Access into his Workstation (he uses RDP right now)
I don't think he'll be using it at all for music, movies, or social networking.
So I guess my question is, looking at what he wants to do on the iPad, do you think there are ways in which he will benefit from the iPad?
