‘Why the iPad Is My New Laptop’

Shawn Blanc:

Within my circle of friends, I know several people who are also using their iPad as their portable computer. I even have a handful friends who have an iPad as their only computer.

It is not a sacrifice to use the iPad as a primary device.


The iPad is a compelling computer, and it is quickly maturing right before our eyes.

My MacBook Pro sits at home more than it used to. Like Shawn, I wouldn’t go back to a desktop computer, because the times I do need to take my Mac somewhere, it is really nice to be able to do so.

That said, I can do the majority of my daily computing tasks done on just my iPad.
