Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
My wife wants an I Pad for Christmas. I don't mind getting her one, however, I have this pesky problem of wanting to buy things of actual use.
My question is this, what is the point of and I Pad? I can get a mini for $329, it has 16g. Why would anyone buy one when a full laptop (320g+) is about $100 cheaper? I jut can't justify spending more money to get something less. It does not make sense tome. Does anyone have a thought on what the point would be in getting an I Pad? She already has a 32g ipod touch so it is not like she needs it for music or apps.

I just need some input so I can try to explain to her how ridiculous it is to get this thing.
Thanks

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
Ipad is not a ridiculous purchase.
It is in fact more practical than your laptop when properly setup.
Get her the Retina Ipad. Not the Mini. The Mini is cheaper but also harderIf on her eyes in the long run. If you are looking to save money, get Ipad 3 or buy from Craigslist.

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
Anyone have a thought? I did a search on what the point of an ipad is. I basically got this, replacement laptop, and that was about it. Most people have a consensus that it has become more of a status simple than a functionality. For the price they charge I could buy just about anything else. However, I want my wife to be happy so any suggestion as to what would be a good supplement for the ipad would be helpful.

This does not explain why the damn thing is worth $500+. Movies? They can be watched through an ipod. Books? Ipod as well. She won't walk around with it wherever she goes. She just wants something a little bigger for home. It will sit on the coffee table for the entire day. When she gets home from work she then starts to play on her ipod, which she wants to be an ipad now. It has a smaller hard-drive for double the price.

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
I got a laptop, kindle fire, and ipad 3. I like the ipad for entertainment and taking trips, the kindle for reading books, and the laptop as a jack of all trades. I won the ipad 3 at a work party but I personally would never buy one

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
I did my research buying a tablet this past summer. I ended up buying the Asus Transformer Prime 32gb and I am so thrilled with it. Picked it up for about $350.00. Look into it. The Ipad is a proprietary piece of garbage compared to this tablet! ( fwiw I'm not anti Mac, I have a MacBook Pro and love it!) For the money though I would not buy Mac again, just not worth the $.

Spend $329 on an Ipad mini, then in 3 months the new Ipad mini will make your $329 purchase obsolete.
If you actually wait 6 months, Apple will have released their Ipad mini 4

then boycott Sony, Microsoft, Dell, Samsung, .... Don't just single out Apple. It's all made in the same place by the same people. Foxconn.


iPads are the best tablet currently. I would suggest an iPad 2 16Gb wifi.

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
Here are my thoughts:

iPads are overpriced, as are all apple products.

Go to this page: [link to reviews.cnet.com]

They have a review, do a google search also for more options and different tablets.

Do some research online, do not just buy an iPad, explain to your wife the disadvantages and advantages of different models and Operating Systems (OS) (operating system or OS is basically like Windows and Macintosh, it is the system that runs all the programs and features, certain things are not compatible with certain operating systems.)

Good luck and have fun

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
I love my iPad! I'm on it now.
Great for surfing the internet, especially GLP, Pinterest, recipes, email.

The mini is too small, and tablets aren't as pretty visually.

The full size iPad is like candy to my eyes and brain.
Get her one...she'll love it and you.

A laptop or desktop is better for some things sitting at a desk and typing a long email or word document, or using software like excel for spreadsheets and other more detailed tasks...(and I will always need one), but I spend 98% of my time surfing the net on my iPad at home, using our home wi-fi connection.

It's nowhere to be written, but once you own some product from apple, your penis increases 2 inches! Well worth the 100 bucks, aint it?

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Re: Need some IPad Help for Christsmas
Hey man, your wife wants an iPad. Doesn't matter if you don't think it's worth it, don't research other devices, don't try to see if it's worth it, and don't try to make the decision for her. If she wants the iPad then get her a damn iPad. She is not your kid, she is your wife, get her what she wants not what you think she should have. My wife is getting an iPad mini this year and my only thoughts on it were, "if that's what my sweetie wants then that's what my sweetie gets", period. It's pretty simple really..........
