Let me pu it to you this way - I use crayons and Oil pastels - but I understand one is not the other. I'm sorry, but I must think more of Apple - I think they should be able to make a full featured OSX tablet and not be a disaster.
1) If you think an iPad is for work, well - not much can be done about that. 2) I'm sure that the "limited" can feel that there is such a thing as non fart apps for an ipad (just like to some Crayons are art supplies) but I would disagree 3) Really?... that is just nonsense. 4) You missed the "geared to the common" part of my statement. 5) you did see that it comes with a full sensitive stylus (you never seen a mac being used with a Wacom?) and it is a PC so any mouse...
If you do not get why some are willing to put up with a fan, just to get a tablet that at a minimum tries to be a PC - Apple makes iOS for you. Just like Macs are not for everyone, neither is this. Being able to load any Font I wish is worth putting up with a Fan... Oh, when I was a junior designer back in 2001 the studio gave me a Powerbook Ti... I'm sure I can deal with whatever heat this generates.
I love the reversal... just like you buy a Mac to do actual work (where the average joe can get by with a PC) and you pay a premium for it - Now we turn to Microsoft for a Tablet that is an actual computer (one for the talented people who can not survive on 0.99 Fart Apps) and the average untalented goes and gets an iPad.
And just like when PC users held the sales figures over the Mac users - so will the iPad users point at the mass sales of the iPad over the...
nice, done... you have to be pretty stupid, young or just to into Apple not to understand why this needs to happen. But I think those are qualities the new iOS era has brought into the Apple community.
just goes to show that as always, the department running Macs are where all the talented people are doing actual work.
All the other floors can use iOS toys and Windows PCs to do their "work"
A bit sad if you can say you can do your job on an iPad... it is like the Crayons of the business computer world.
You do know that the USA is not the only 1st world country in the world? I mean, Japan, Germany, UK, France... all come to mind. You also understand - that for many in the USA a 200 dollar phone made in China is not a Premium item (Financially or Artistically)... It is like having a 15K Benz made in Mexico. Also, people who buy an iPad are just people who do not have the talent or money to buy a real Apple computer. Why you see, all the "Creative" yet not very...
