iPad 2 Versus Laptop

IPad 2 has finally arrived.... but it is not mine.. yet... hahahaha...

I am still contemplating whether to get a new laptop or an iPad2 ... my present lappie is going to retire soon. Every 5 minutes or so, the wifi will get disconnected and I have to click "repair" to obtain back the connection.... lecehkan? But then it is still usable... I "sayang" to put it to sleep for good...

should I get a iPad or a lappie...

Lesson No. 1 - let's start with the fingers...
to pull the "string".. (using physics, Andy said)

and see where the Angry Bird flies...

With an iPad, I don't think I have time for blogging...
I will be addicted to Angry Birds!

My summary: iPad is good for those who are always on the go.... it will keep us entertained cos it is light and easy to carry. But for me, I still prefer to have a laptop... but of course, I don't mind having both if "money permits." :) Which do you rather prefer?

  4. depends what you really want to do with the new gadget.. if you want for purely entertainment then of course iPad will be good; if you want other than entertainment like some serious job, then laptop is better choice..

  9. Right now, I have a laptop and hubby has an iPad... I love both... There are advantages to both.. The iPad won't do other programs --such as my Family History program. BUT--the iPad is great for email and blogging....

    When my laptop dies, I'll probably get an iPad... That's the future I think.
    Hugs,

  20. Whose iPad is it, did Andy get one? I wish I had one, but then doesn't each app cost money? do you pay every month or only once for them?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'd still go for laptop. It already has everything. Wherein iPad, you still have to connect external device.

  31. if money permits, get both.

    Ipad2 is like an oversized iphone. Good for surfing and playing games, but to do real heavy duty work, even blogging, it's not as versatile as a laptop

  45. If can get both, that's the best. But if u can oni choose 1, looks like lappie is a more suitable choice, based on ur requirements. We're oso thinking of getting an iPad. But hv to set vy strict rules for the kids to avoid addiction. hahaha
