I was one of those people who said "who needs an Ipad? why not just get a laptop when it does more!" and then I got an iPad and I now feel like an idiot because they are awesome.
BUT if you buy an iPad expecting it to replace your laptop, you will be disappointed for a few reasons...
1) An iPad isn't and never was designed to replace either a PC or a laptop; its a tablet device which compliments either a PC, Mac or a laptop.
2) An iPad has one massive disadvantage in regards to transferring data; it has no DVD drive or USB slot (but you can connect it to the PC via the provided connection and pull data on and off)!
Now if we look at what the iPad does offer, its an amazing piece of technology with immense potential.
I use mine for...
1) Word processing and spreadsheet creation.
2) Painting and drawing.
3) Internet browsing.
4) Music, videos and pod-casts.
You can't judge an iPad or any technology unless you know what functionality you need, and then measure whether it achieves that. All the above are what I required so it suits me perfectly.
To sum up an iPad; it is a a bigger, more powerful iPhone and it works...
Word processing and spreadsheet creation works a charm. Typing couldn't be easier, and with a wide range of word processing "apps" to buy and use. There are even "apps" which read and create MS documents too.
Internet Browsing, despite the lack of flash, is spot on. Most websites now are moving away from flash or offer a free "app" to download and use.Read more ›
Connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi with my 'N' router was as easy as entering the password and I have to say the response time of the Safari web browser was very impressive, with pages loading very quickly making web browsing a joy. The screen is a gem being bold and bright and large enough to be regarded as a serious web browsing monitor. The only slight criticism, which is often referred to, is how quickly the screen becomes covered in fingerprints. But I hasten to add the need to clean it only becomes apparent after you've turned the thing off and isn't a problem during use.
Of course, Apps are a huge attraction and there's a lot of fun to be had from browsing the App Store and downloading from the huge amount available, many of which are free and even the paid ones don't exactly break the bank. And apps can be downloaded directly onto the iPad, there's no need to sync them from the computer to the device.
If, like me, you enjoy keeping up with the news and catching up with missed TV programmes then apps like BBC iPlayer, Sky news for iPad, and the (currently free) Channel 4oD are obvious choices and are very impressive on the iPad. A YouTube app also comes as standard and there have been comments about losing Wi-Fi connection whilst using it which I did experience a few times. This may need to be fixed in a future update but it reconnected quickly and wasn't a big problem.Read more ›
I ordered off of Apple (Got the free engraving) and through their website was able to check its progress: China, Middle East,Germany,England. The I-Pad arrives fully charged, however if like me and this is your first Apple product you need to download I-Tunes in which to register the product. (No other-way to get it working)
Well, to turn it on, you depress the wee button on the top of the Pad, It's up and running within seconds and I mean seconds. To access your mail touch the mail app (Ok,you do have to enter your e-mail details first) and again within seconds you are checking your e-mail. Check the internet, touch the Safari app (Safari is the Apple version of Window Explorer/Firefox/Opera etc) very smooth again within seconds I'm surfing the net.
The battery lasts around 10 hours and takes up to a couple to recharge.
Now I suppose the main selling point for a lot of people will be the applications (Apps) that are available. I simply bought a couple of pre-paid vouchers in town and entered them into my I-tunes account. Its as easy as that and you don't have to enter any bank details anywhere.Read more ›
