Hey Apple, iPad Pro is much more than a computer

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    You nailed it. It’s more than a computer. I use it for writing notes, making music, watching movies, facetiming friends and family, read books and magazines, music, mind mapping, emails, calenders, social interaction, taking pictures, planning with maps, sketching, and so much more….all on one thin light device…at the same time syncing to my phone and computer. Apple should be pushing this as the whole world goes mobile.

    ” iPads cannot (quite) do everything a PC can do”

    That seems to be a very subjective and vague statement, especially when you consider that conversely, PCs can’t do everything that iPads can do.

    As with cameras, the best personal computer is the one that you have with you. But… There is NO “best” personal computer in ALL situations.

    The personal computer that everyone carries around with them all of the time is their smartphone. So for most of the time when we are NOT lugging around a laptop or tablet computer, the smartphone is our best personal computer. The drawback of course is the small screen… But then again, it does allow us to do our computing when we have nothing else (which is most of the time).

    Tablet computers are thinner and lighter than laptops, they provide an honest 10+ hours of real-world use, and have a display large enough for most activities. But it is not something that we want to carry around 24/7. But when we do have it with us, it is our best personal computer.

    Laptops are thicker and heavier than tablets, and they provide less real-world battery life, but they have larger displays and include full-sized keyboards and trackpads, leaving the display visible for our work. We don’t want to or need to carry a laptop around with us all of the time, but when we have it with us, it is our best personal computer.

    Desktop computers can have huge 27″ or 30″ displays, and allows us to have a desktop large enough to have multiple complex applications open at once. But it is NOT portable, so if we are using a desktop at home or at work, it is the best personal computer. We just can’t move around while we use it.

    In other words, it is futile to say one type of personal computer is the only “real” personal computer, or that it is better than all of the rest. People who do say things like that are not fully aware that each form of personal computer is perfect for a particular situation, while it may also not be ideal for other situations.
