I’ve been using the iPad as my fulltime work computer for several weeks, only resorting to a regular notebook for creating presentations and diagrams. So far I believe I can create these graphical documents faster when working on a regular computer.
Today, I decided to leave my iPad home as I had some work to do on my netbook during the day and didn’t want to carry both with me. Its amazing how much I missed having the iPad with me.
It turns out that I check and reply to my email way more frequently on the iPad then on a notebook. Also, I carry the iPad with me wherever I go in the office and even when I go to the mall next to the building I’ve been working out of. My regular computer, weighting well over 2.5 kilos sits on top of my desk day and night, effectively as a desktop replacement.
I already knew that some people get iPhone withdrawal, but it hadn’t really occurred to me that the same would be true of the iPad, as the iPhone seems to be even a bit more personal as you can always have it in your pocket.
From now on I’m not planning on leaving my iPad home, regardless of what else I’m going to be carrying with me.
