Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

An iPad can't beat a "real" computer for serious work, but it sure is near perfect for all casual stuff.


Depends what serious work is. For example, I regularly fly to and from London City airport, and airport staff are given iPads to easily and quickly look up information on flights. Obviously, if work is writing 20 page documents, then and iPad is not the right tool for the job, but if you aren't doing big documents or spreadsheets, or basically don't need to type a lot, you could find yourself more productive with an iPad.
