But kindles aren't made by Apple, and thus are automatically discounted!

Can an iPad fly? Is that how it ended up in the wood chipper? Did anyone see, or did it not actually happen?

What do you use a laptop for?
Serious graphics projects, for which full-strength Photoshop is still the best tool. I do plenty of graphics on the iPad, too, usually in the tablet version of Photoshop and including some fairly ambitious jobs. But I can do more sophisticated, precise work on a Mac or PC, and I can do it faster.

And he is using an approx $800 iPad you can buy a $400 laptop that can do all.

You just don't get it. If you had lived 125 years ago, you would have been the one who said: "Dagnabit, if man was meant to fly, God would have given him wings." laugh


So in 100 years, perhaps we'll have tablets that CAN do it all.



In 100 years we will not even have people that have used a PC laptop or tablet.

Apple is the 8th fastest growing company in the world according to Fortune's top 100. Google and Samsung did not make the list.

You guys can mock until Ed's airplane's come home, but the writing is on the wall. laugh

“It’s easy to assume people are conforming when we witness them all choosing the same option, but when we choose that very option ourselves, we have no shortage of perfectly good reasons for why we just happen to be doing the same thing as those other people; they mindlessly conform, but we mindfully choose … Rather than being alone in a crowd of sheep, we’re all individuals in sheep’s clothing.” -,Sheena Iyengar, academic (1969–), The Art of Choosing (2010)

I'd take that bet. The simple fact is, there is something to be said for a large monitor for many applications, for a full sized keyboard (not a touch screen), and frankly, you will never get rid of desktop PCs, yet alone laptops.

Another good point. People tried to say that gaming on a PC was going to die with the advent of the X-Box, but it didn't.

The fallacy in arguing price is that is assumes price is the only motivator. It is not.

That is true, the most important factor is marketing and being cool.

Hipsters don't have to worry about price since mommy or daddy are paying for it anyway.

True. How much is spent each year on bottled water? If price was the motivator, wouldn't everyone drink tap water?

And no, I don't drink bottled water. I fill my glass with ice and get my water from the tap.

Games on pads have pathetic graphics compared to gaming rigs.
