    I received my iPad via ups on Wednesday, and as the days go on I become more impressed with this thing. I've only used my laptop twice since then! To be honest I'll probably only use my laptop when working on papers and using excel. I've tried excel on the iPad, but I still prefer using a trackpad.

    Reading is such a better experience on this as well. I didn't like reading articles on my laptop, but it's no problem at all on the iPad. This is definitely my new go to device!

    Yea that's the way it is. I'm hoping I can just get 5 years out of the new retina MacBook Pro 13.3 I bought. Got it for $1049 new. I domt see me using it much, but when I need it, it gets used a bunch and it helps. I mostly write my papers on it and will probably setup open emu on it. I"d say maybe a couple hours a week use on average.

    I was using the 12 retina MacBook and that thing is great, but going to the the 13.3 feels a lot better with screen space. I just figure since I'm not using it everyday I don't need portability. I mostly use the mini 4 at home and my iPhone six S plus when out.

    The iPad Air 2 is certainly an amazing device. Received it in February and haven't really touched my old iPod anymore (actually is on the floor somewhere), but my iPhone definitely takes the cake for the most usage.

    The Air 2 was one of my best upgrade decisions.

    Same here. Hardly use my PC these days, except for downloading movies and the odd work. And not using my phone too. It's an LG G2, decent phone back in the day but can't hold a candle to the Air 2 in terms of media consumption and browsing..and the odd thing is I'm not able to get adjusted to using smartphones, their screens just seem too small to get comfortable.
