I'm just wondering how much people's notebook usage has decreased since they bought an iPad.
Didn't see that. Thanks Miles!
No, I still use my laptop just as much... So the iPad has actually increased the amount of time I spend on a computer.
The iPad has definitely decreased the amount of time I sleep and work...
Yep. Aside from the starcraft beta and steam for mac, I haven't used my laptop all week. Of course, I'm still on after-finals detox (read: no heavy lifting), so the iPad has been sufficient for most I have wanted to do recently.
I was on my iPad a lot more when I got it last month but I'm back to using my mac full time for internet again.
Since I got my iPad I haven't been using my mbp 15" at all. I actually just sold it. So now I'm just using a MP and my iPad. The iPad is truly an amazing device. I have plans to get a newer MBP sometime but not in a big rush. Going to wait and see if I'm happy with just an iPad and home Mac first. Guessing when I'm on away from home or on a trip somewhere I will want something more than just my iPad though.
As soon as I receive my new Mac Mini my MBP will be up for sale.
I sold my MacBook a week before release and have not missed it at all.
I was one of those not originally impressed by the iPad, however, circumstances called for a selling of the MBP for a good price and the purchase of an iPad. It's a great little powerhouse for about everything I could need. I plan on keeping all my lecture material on it for teaching my university classes in the fall. One small book is all I need!
My MacBook is sold, I will keep the iMac for the proper stuff, but the iPad is almost constantly around (unless my wife has it).
Sold one MacBook and the other one now only gets used for downloading and when the wife needs it for work
by a lot
leaving the MBA at home these days when I am travelling
It hasn't decreased my laptop usage because I don't have one. It has however made me rethink purchasing one though.
The thing that surprises me is just how many people have said that their iPad has dramatically reduced (and in some cases eliminated) the amount of time they use their Macbooks. That tells me that they spent way too much money for too much machine.
I'm sure that just depends on each person's situation. For example, I needed a powerful computer for school, and I needed mobility. Hence, a mbp. Now with the iPad, my next computer will probably be a desktop, as the desktop/iPad combo probably costs about the same and would work just as well (if not better).
Of course, taking the summer off negates almost all needs for anything but the iPad
Or they listened to too many people telling them what they might possibly need instead of what they really needed.
I only use my brand new MacBook Pro when the iPad is charging.
I have to say, I've considered selling my 11 month old MacBook Pro. I am not...for now, but I go sometimes two or three days without really using it. Whereas before I used it every morning and usually in the evenings while vege'n out on the couch watching the tube.
It's also been really nice in bed late at night.
I haven't used my mbp except for any photo editing that I need to do or playing games. That will change a lot though, once college starts up.
Nope. If it's taken time away from anything, it's my iPhone. It fills a different niche. Simply put, I use my laptop for content creation and my iPad for content consumption. It's great for reading in bed, watching movies, playing games, and surfing my usual round of websites and blogs. It's OK for light input (Facebook, blog comments, e.g.), but I wouldn't want to use it to write a full blog entry or do serious work. For creative work, I need more tools than the iPad offers.
i would really love to buy an ipad but since its not its own itunes brain i wont..
i wish they would have made it so i can hook my iphone to it and have the ipad be the brain of my itunes.
i would have to buy an updated Mac cause im still running a 12" powerbook lol
yes i am...but i dont use it...i only use it to update my iphone every once and awhile..
would love to do away with having a notebook or another computer and just have an ipad and iphone.
I just sold my netbook to a friend for $200.
Haven't used it at all since I got my pad.
Still use my desktop machine regularly, though...
Reality check, Sean. Let us assume you have a 64 GB iPod Touch. Will you really back it up to your 64 GB iPad, and still have room for your iTunes Library?
My iTunes Library, including video, apps, and books, is a heck of a lot bigger than 64 GB.
I use my iPad. I hardly touch my hp laptop. Just for converting n burning movies. And downloading
