Can iPad Replace A Laptop?
“If I Get An iPad, Can It Replace Another Laptop I’m Carrying?”
iPads make good alternatives to a standard laptop for people who travel frequently, want a do-it-all electronic, or simply are tired of lugging around a laptop.
iPads can function well as replacement laptops if you don’t need huge amounts of storage and only need a laptop for simple functions (checking and responding to email, easy word processing, surfing the internet, etc.)
There are many apps that can help you make your iPad as fully functional as a laptop, and keyboards you plug into your iPad can make typing easier and quicker.
While storage space is an issue for some people using the iPad, new cloud computing services, such as Dropbox, Box, iCloud, and SkyDrive, can help you manage your storage needs.
Whether an iPad can replace a laptop for you or not really comes down to your needs.
An iPad is not a good replacement for a laptop if you need to do heavy video or audio editing on large files, specialty software such as statistics or music notation, complex spreadsheets, or large word processing documents.
Computer programmers, writers, and editors are just a few of the people who often need a regular laptop for these needs.
