Get a grown up computer.... a PC, Mac was fine when I was in middle school but after that PC is the way + Macs laptops have the problem of fixed battery, so you have to lug around the wall adaptor just incase & they are very over priced for what you get.
For the iPad, PC has better gaming but then your paying more for the games, iPad games run $12 or less, most run $4.99. It is great for surfing the net, email & travel, the instant on is really nice, it is not as fast loading webpages as my laptop. Sometime the auto reload of webpages when you have "many" pages open & go back & forth or close Safari then open some other program then go back to Safari then it reloads is annoying, you never know when it will reload, it is a minor thing... I hope they fix that with O/S 4.2. The iPad is no replacement for a Decktop or a laptop but is an alternative to a netbook & is a fun multi-tasking toy.
[and i might be getting an apple discount (or at least a good price)]
so my question is: is it worth getting both. my dad may not appreciate it, but im willing to pay all of it or something. it will be mainly for games and apps and things like that. for example, both me and my dad share my desktop. so whenever i do homework and he needs to use it i usually leave.
so the MBP would be to continue my homework and all, while the ipad would be it surf the net, play games, and just goof off. like on long car rides and all, i would take the ipad to kill time and well the MBP is for school and things like that.
like i would use the ipad when im sure that i wont need to open the MBP. for a simple email check, and like remote desktop stuff like that.
please give me your feed back im so confused.. im getting mixed replies on posts, etc and im not sure what to do.
