Just curious, cause I only use my computer on weekends now. During the week, its ipad only.
No. I've upgraded my computer and my iPad.
Nope. I have an iMac for home use and an LTE rMini for on the go.
Nope. Just bought a HP laptop with AMD quad processor, 500 GB hard drive, and 4 GB memory. $80 pawn shop special! Works great with my iPad Air.
nope, two iPads and i still enjoy my macbook.
Nope. But my macbook air is my work computer so the iPad can't replace it. It is a good supplement though.
Ipad is nothing close to my computer in term of usablitly so no!
Neglect? Yes. Its still a 2006 Core2. Its media repository and the occasional thing I need a desktop for.
Not counting corp issued Dell/Windows which fills in some computing needs.
Not for me. The iPad and computer fill two different needs. I'm still on my Mac quite a bit.
My iPad has a job to do as well as my iMac and neither are a substitute for the other so no downsizing for me.
No I still have my Dell inspirion i5 laptop and a chromebook. I just don't use them very often.
No way , an IPad cannot replace my MacBook Pro or any other laptop or desktop for that matter
So many things I can't do on iPad ... Sometimes I can't even see a website let alone play a video properly on iPad
Downsizing actually takes money and/or effort, so like many other posters, I just use my current setup less.
No, I've upgraded my desktop and laptop since I got an iPad.
my ipad air is my main computer...
i sold my macbook air because i didn't use it....
ipad air can already be the main computer... as i wrote in another thread many people use their macbook air or retina pro for simple tasks that you can do even better with an ipad...
obviously if you use adobe literoom or Photoshop in heavy tasks you need a macbook
but for 99% of tasks is enough... especially browsing... music...
OP, are you talking about desktop PC or laptop or both? The answer is no, I still use my rMBP at home like I am typing this right now and my iPad Air for to go and on long train/bus ride playing games and reading books.
Not really. I had this iMac before I got an iPad. I have gone from an iPad 2 to iPad 3 to iPad Air but I'm still on the same iMac, albeit with a 2 TB hybrid drive and 12GB of RAM instead of the stock 500GB drive and 4GB of RAM.
I have actually been shocked at being about the only person with an iPad. Those kids have notebooks galore and everybody has an iPhone, but I can't recall seeing someone else with an iPad. It was a back-saver because I was able to get two textbooks via the Kindle app, which also meant they were on me all the time since I carry my iPad almost everywhere.
I would really like to get a MacBook Air, but it's hard to justify right now. I need a portable at times, which is why I use my Gateway notebook. It's just darn heavy.
I don't think an iPad can ever replace a "real" computer. I have a 3rd gen iPad that I seldom use whereas my MBP is in constant usage. The only time where I would use my iPad is if I'm in bed or going somewhere and I don't want to bring my laptop.
I barely use my MBP now. The ipad fits my current needs perfectly.
When I bought my first iPad, my use of my DIY AMD rig dropped dramatically to mainly gaming.
Since then I bought a Mini (2011) and now an Air, I haven't touched my PC other than to run backup on my WHS.
Downsized? Nope. To the contrary, I had a custom desktop rig built. Love my iPad and use it daily, but it can't run the apps I need.
It's a win-win situation, since I have power and speed in the desktop and the mobility of the iPad.
I'm pretty much ipad only - my laptop died and I never bothered replacing it.
I also use the PC only during the weekend since I bought an iPad. I do not miss the PC at all.
Nope - went the other way. I got brainwashed by Apple I think.
I went from:
17" ASUS gaming Notebook (Sandybridge i7)
Cheap 15" notebook for the wife
iPad 3 (then iPad Air)
iPad Mini Retina for the wife
rMBP15 top spec for me
entry level MBA 13" for the wife
2 x Apple TV3
2TB Time Capsule
Both phones went from iPhone 4 to iPhone 5
and iphone 4S to iPhone 5S
