So, my question is, how does the iPad hold up as a replacement for simply browsing t'internet? Or is it even worthy of replacing a laptop entirely?


Internet browsing is great, remember the issue with flash though. In general it works great, you can save things as word docs etc. You will need a laptop or pc or something to back it up on and to manage your files especially if you need to print things.

If you just want it for apps games and browsing, get an original iPad so you can afford a cheap notebook as well for Uni things :-)

Because alternative tablets don't have a big shiny apple on the back of them :lol:

I've got an older Android tablet and an iPad.

I have to say that the iPad completly wipes the floor with the Android device. Maybe its because I would need to hack it to get it to version 2.1 of the android os, therefore some of the apps aren't as good.

Although I have a few Apple goods I am far from a fanboy but the quality of what they produce is very good. I wonder how long it will take them to get into the console market?

Except tablets will soon be running windows 8, which will open a whole new set of doors

An apple console.... The price of a PS3 but with all the money making schemes that microsoft force on people ?

I use my iPad for internet browsing over everything else. I only fire up the PC if I need to do work on the site etc.

Plus it has the Tapatalk forum app, I find that the best way to view forums too

The lack of standardisation with Android is quite a turn off. I thought Google were going to do something about it?

By comparison, the cheapest iPad is $499. Is there a way to type on the iPad without laying it flat and using the virtual keyboard?


Not sure if this is spam or not. Anyway the Mrs does a lot on the iPad and we have a bluetooth keyboard that she uses for it
