Hi. I've always admired Apple for their products and OS. But never owned any of them directly because they were always over priced. But, seeing as iPad has jumped into the game it has changed the price factor and iPad 2 kinda proves that with the competition out there. I'm one of those people that understands both sides, but quite frankly for the last 10+ years of using Windows as my primary way of computing I've grown tired of it. Managing crap that's always running in the background, virus protection software and all the other junk that comes with Windows has really pushed me away from the brand. Not saying anything concrete here but let's just say I've grown tired of maintaining the vehicle. In fact the machine should work for me, I should not work for the machine. Right now, I'm looking to take a dive into my first Apple product which is obviously the iPad 2. It seems to be the most affordable Apple product I can buy since the laptops and desktops are out of my range. I'm looking to replace my desktop, which I've used only for Web, Email, Videos, Hulu, Netflix and Skype. Based on the thing's I've posted I wanted to get a general feel on how iPad/2 handles the software such as Skype, Hulu etc... etc... If I can just get some thoughts from you guys about normal things we do that iPad may have simplified. I sometimes manage websites and was surprised to see that iPad's have the FTP software. It almost seems like for simple things that I do on my Desktop that ipad does it but more portable and easier. All I'm trying to do is simplify, something Windows in my opinion fails to do with each iteration. Also, this site has way to many ad's. Thanks.
