Quite an open discussion right?
Can we really consider iPads or tablets a full substitute of a laptop? Obviously not now.
Well for those who only check the email, read the newspaper online and follow their social networks, it definitely is!
But for those using applications (advance applications) is not really a substitute… for now.
Programming and anything related to introducing data by typing is not really made for tablets/iPads.
However, video and image editing is perfect! I’d love to work directly with my hands in photoshop instead of using the mouse!
Even Microsoft Office could be adjusted to work in a tablet. Could you imagine preparing a Power Point presentation with your hands? I get goosebumps!
Actually, whenever I see myself using an iPad I see “the future me”. Do you remember that scene in Minority Report where Tom Cruise is able to manage files and data in an interactive digital interface?
I truly believe we’ll get to that point and iPad are the beginning. But well, let’s continue with the present!
So, are iPads/tablets the future laptops?? I think they will be for a domestic use only. I’m in love with MacBook Pro but ey!, give me an iPad with Lighroom, Filezilla, Photoshop, VLC and NetNewsWire and my laptop will end up old and alone!
