It's in for any overnight checkup, but yeah, all golden so far.

I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt

I find myself pondering an unexpected question, however: What does an $899 11-inch Air say about the future of the 9.7-inch iPad Air? The top-of-the-rage iPads — the ones that people buy if they intend to use them like “real” computers — are now either the same price as the cheapest MacBook Air or just below it, particularly if you factor in the cost of an add-on keyboard.

 

The advent of the iPad plus not having a work laptop means I no longer have or want a personal laptop. But...I will have to re-examine that when it's time to replace my iPad 3. Could a laptop that's just as small with same or better battery life be the better of an iPad for home and travel? Hrmmm... I don't think so for me, but it will be worth considering next year.

I think I will always want a desktop. Can't imagine doing the heavy lifting they do with a tablet.

While I still need some desktop use at home, the iPad means I don't need a personal laptop. Don't do 'heavy lifting' on the road. Or on the couch in front of the TV. :)

 

I think it's getting to be a tossup for many people, and comes down to budget. One modern laptop is cheaper and better compromose than a desktop and tablet.

 

 

 

I saw that stand via some other blog. Pretty clever.
