Not so long ago Apple has released their brand new product called the iPad and the web has been buzzing ever since. Some people like it, others don’t. Andreas Louca talks about Taking on the iPad in his post which points out some very good arguments.
So I come and ask you. Who will buy an iPad? Well the answer to that very question is My Mother and people like my mother. Why you may ask. Let me explain.
My mother want’s a computer to do the following.
- Check her emails.
- Browse the web and read the news.
- Watch videos / Listen to music.
- And of course play Tetris
So does the iPad do the following? Of course it does. And it does so much more than that. Some might argue that a laptop does that also, but a laptop is more expensive than the iPad (Well an Apple laptop).
So given the requirements that she wants I do recommend the iPad and I would go as far as say that she would use it even more than if she bought a regular laptop.
What do you think?
