Tablet PC Comparison and Reviews

Overview:

This is an Apple 10″ (9.7″ display) Tablet computer that packs a lot of punch. It’s very small and light weight. The built-in Flash memory allows it to boot quickly and the display looks incredible. The huge App Store makes getting apps and games for it a breeze.  There are also a ton of adapters and accessories available for it. The more Apple toys that you buy, the better this thing gets.  It actually works great with Apple TV and airplay as well.

If you do intend to use the iPad for lots of writing or word-processing purposes, you may find that your ability to type quickly will be greatly inhibited by the virtual keyboard. Thus, you should pick up the external keyboard and a tablet stand as well. Either way, be prepared to pay more than just the price for the iPad alone. There’s definitely more than meets the eye if you intend to make the iPad into something a little bit more productive than it might be for you out of the box. Overall, its a great device at a great price.  You can’t go wrong with Apple products.

Note:  It’s rumored that the iPad 2 is slated to come out in April.  If you’re looking to buy one of these anytime soon it may be a good idea to wait until the next version comes out.
