I’ve been a mac user since the late 80s, but after receiving an ipad mini as a gift, it felt like boulders had been moved out of the way. I don’t suppose I’m alone in this. the hardware does seem zippy but it’s the using of the ipad that seems faster to me - almost effortless. it’s the hands-on use of the device, the freedom from the mouse and endless clicking.. I used to be among those who’d say that the ipad looked cool but that I needed a “real” computer. Now, I view those “real computers” as straight jackets! thoughts?
