I love my new iPad
I'm new to this forum.Just bought my iPad yesterday. I am a nurse, my job is to audit charts. I audit charts from home. BUT, I also travel alot by plane to audit charts other places. I got tired of dragging around either my netbook, and my Nook color, or my nook color and my Kindle and my 14 inch laptop, plus my work laptop which I have to have, and the heavy portable scanner.
I travel so much that I allowed my reimbursements (for a month in Albuquerque), to pay for the iPad. It worked! good plan. No more lugging a nook color and a second laptop through the TSA. When I was in San Antonio, the TSA guy said "if you want to go lighter, buy a tablet." You don't have to separately show them in a separate tub through the x-ray machine.
Then I found out that if you get the ap, you can use Microsoft word in it. I travel so much, I journal my travel. I can get my email, play a couple of cool games, play solitare, get on fB (I'm kind of a FB addict), read my Nook or kindle books, (some of the magazines in Nook color won't download to iPad, but I don't care for magazines on my Nook color, anyway.)
I'm still learning about it. Found the mute button on the side. I had Best Buy Zagg it for me, cause I was literally afraid to do anything, until the screen was Zagged. That is my number one electronic rule. I did the same with my HTC Sensation, my Ipod touch....etc.
I actually signed up to take a free class at the local Apple store on Tuesday about the basics of it, and productivity. I was in a resturant in Albuquerque, and they ran the entire place on Ipads. I did find out how to text on it, which is very cool. I will never use it for GPS, that's my Garmin or my phone. I considered 3g, but decided I didn't need it, or want to pay the extra bill for it.
I've not even had it for 24 hours yet, and I love it. It will indeed replace a laptop for my travels, and it's so portable, I use it instead of my Nook color. My son has a Macbook, and I have a couple of Ipods. I also have an HP desktop, and a Dell laptop that is about to die. lol. I'm about to sell my Kindle. No need for it. I would love to know how to turn off the darned Facebook notifications in the middle of a song. I've done everything to turn off the fB sound, it drives me nuts. Other than that, I love it!
