This is a very good question.. Before I answer that question I would like to ask myself why iPad ? Well honestly speaking I am a big android fan. I love the open source nature of android, the choice of available apps. I find android apps to be more practical than iPad apps for some reason.
I have always believed that apple has this nasty habit of pricing their products ridiculously.. And I don’t want to buy a product just for the hype. The new iPad brings ratina display a better camera, a5 etc.. But what the heck.. I am not paying crazy amount of money just for these minor changes. The new iPad also bought price drop on iPad 2. At inr 21800 iPad 2 is an awesome deal, Hence iPad 2.
Now that I have iPad 2 in my hands, I want to make the best use of it. I have a 5 year old Acer laptop with windows 7. I love my laptop and it has served me well.. I have also tried windows 8 consumer preview and it runs awesome too.. So I see no reason what’s so ever to throw my acer laptop away. I will use it for another couple of years may be even more until it dies on me..
Now I have this iPad and I want it to serve me well too.. Being a coder who works on Microsoft Technologies I have no way to escape windows nor have any such intentions either..
iPad as a primary computer is very tough. It is a great companion, I can do lots of stuff on iPad but can it totally replace a laptop? Well the answer is NO!
