Ok, so in another post I complained about how expensive the IPP is and how it doesn't do anything appreciably different from my iPad 4. I decided to explore other options to upgrade from my iPad 4 so I looked at Android tablets. In my search, I found Samsung NotePro 12.2 tablets for half the price of the IPP at BestBuy, so I bit. Although I was quite enamoured with some of the things you could do with the NotePro that you can't on an iPad, like hooking up USB drives, mice, 4 window multitasking, etc., I became frustrated with its browsing capabilities and general overall lagginess. For something with that kind of processor and 3gb of ram, I thought it should have run smoother. Also, the fact that all my data, passwords, accounts, movies, music, apps, etc. are within the Apple ecosystem didn't help. In the end, I decided to return it and buy the IPP. Well, I have to say I can't believe how fast this thing is. It is night and day compared to the Samsung and every other tablet I've owned. I realize the Samsung is almost 2 years old, but it should have been faster that it was. Even with 3 or 4 tabs open in Chrome, it would reload the tabs often. The IPP is an absolute beast. It flies through web pages, my files stored on my network and everything else I throw at it. The other thing that sold me on the IPP, and apple products in general, is the resale value. I'm sure I'll get at least 4 years out of the IPP and be able to sell it for decent money down the road when it's time to upgrade. Overall, I'm quite happy with my decision. So, I just wanted to post my experience with others who are still not sure if the IPP is for them. The performance alone is worth upgrading imo, but it really depends on what your using it for. For those of you that are on the fence about the IPP, go ahead and try it out. You can always return it if you don't like it. I just love how buttery smooth and integrated everything is, and the size of the screen is just great - everything else just seems too small for me now. And btw, I absolutely love the on-screen keyboard.
