As an avid devotee of all thing Apple, I lust after the iPad. I always have. Yet? I do not own one, nor do I have any plans to get one anytime soon.
The reason? I simply cannot justify the expense for what – it seems to me – is basically just a really big iPhone (I do, of course, have an iPhone, I’m not INSANE). Frankly, rather than drop $600 on an iPad I’d rather add some money to that and get a really big iMac for my office (I currently have a 2010 Macbook Pro as my sole computer).
But I have friends that SWEAR by their iPads and they say they wouldn’t travel with anything else anymore. So I decided to reach out to some friends and ask what they think. The answers might surprise you!
Annie of Mama Dweeb says NAY
"We had the original iPad and it broke. The only thing we used it for was videos for the kids and games for the kids. My MacBook works way better at "on the go" email/blogging. For the price it is a total NAY from me - all we used it for was a super expensive toy. "
