The Truth about the Ipad
This is a discussion on The Truth about the Ipad within the iPad Reviews forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Lmao, and I quote: "but I use a computer to make money and do work something that an ipad will never be able to do."
Lmao, and I quote: "but I use a computer to make money and do work something that an ipad will never be able to do."
I use my iPad for work all the time. I can't remember the last time I used my company provided desktop or laptop... I actually do more with my iPad than the desktop or laptop. Pretty soon I should be getting my mount for my company truck to make greater use of the iPad.
Look, you need to learn that like a desktop or laptop, an iPad is a tool to use. Now maybe your job doesn't allow you to use an iPad. But that doesn't mean that's the same for everyone else. You need to quit trying to voice your thoughts in ways that focus around you.
One last thing.. You touched the subject again about AT&T service.... Please help me out here. I bought an iPad awhile ago. After AT&T capped data to 2gb per month. Now how am I to get unlimited data to my pad? All carriers have caps now.. I had a sprint mifi with a 5gb for double the price I pay now. But if you can tell me a way I can get a better plan than AT&T with using only the items I carry now, let me know.

like gentlefury said...
the iPad is not a replacement...its a companion
My iPad completely replaced my notebook for school. I can now have most of my school books on my iPad, take all my notes, and record voice notes as well. Yes, I could have done all that with a laptop, but the touch interface makes it easier and I've actually become accustomed to typing on the touch screen and I like it. Also, I'm lucky to get three hours of life from my laptop before it needs to be charged, and then I have to have a cable running across the classroom to the plug, which people trip over. No, I'm not going to sit in the corner by the plug, I learn best by sitting front and center.
So, while the iPad might not be for you, it does actually work for some people.
Now I'm not defending the limitations of the iPad whatsoever, but it filled a void that made things much more simple for me.
I'm not going to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab, it's not up to the standards of the iPad as far as smoothness and interface goes, but I will be buying an Android tablet in the next few months, probably the Notion Ink Adam, but I might wait for the Acer tablets since they are higher resolution and should be running Gingerbread.
I bought the iPad because there was nothing else out at the time in tablet form that was better. Now (soon) there is, so I'm jumping ship.
I think the truth about ipad should be considered, and thats what i've noticed today.
I'll be waiting for Version 2, which knowing Apple will be out in a few months...
If you are going to wait a few months, you might as well get one of the good Android tablets that will be release in early 2011. They will be more functional and cheaper than the iPad.

I was going to post a rebuttal to the original statement, even had most of it written out, however it would have been wasted bits.
Anyway I give up as people are not understanding since I am reading comments how the ipad replaced their laptop. If Ipad meets your work needs than you really don't have much need for a computer, I mean pretty much an iphone could meet your needs also.
Like chris rock said I could drive a car with my feet if I want to, doesn't make it a good idea. I get it people want so badly for the ipad to just be their all in one computer which would be nice in a perfect world. If someone can actully tell me they are more productive on a ipad than a laptop or computer I would love to have them explain that to me. How fast do you type on your ipad 40 wpm. Only apple can do this to people, I will never understand but hey I guess it's good for apple.
I couldn't read my school books or take notes on an iPhone. There's an app for it, but it would be useless. I do type quite well on my iPad, I end up without 2-3 pages per night of class. The only thing I bring paper for is to draw out equations and diagrams.
For right now, the iPad does almost everything I need from a laptop. But once the next round of Android Tablets hits the market in early 2011, my iPad is saying bye-bye, and my Android tablet will take it's place.
Then it will do 99.98% of what I need a laptop to do.
Ok you're saying 2 things :
1- ipad didn't suit you. Good you were able to established that and proceed forward.
2- ipad doesnt replace a laptop/desktop. Ok no one ever claimed it did. A lot are just saying that itnhas almost completely eliminated the need for normal computer usage.
You keep sayng, in a not very positive note, that it's not a computer. Yes we get that & no one claimed it is.
Let's move on now.
