Hey guys, been a long time lurker on the macbook pro forum since i joined. I have a 6 year old Toshiba laptop with me and still going quite well but i feel it's time to upgrade as it's getting quite slow in doing some heavy tasks such as watching movies or multi-tasking.... I have been in the PC world all the time and i feel it's time for a change since i've seen how cool Apple products can be. So I want to put this question out to the Apple experts here, should i buy the iPad 2 or the Macbook pro? (high end 15inch model because of a decent graphic card). Price isn't an issue and i will be carrying them from home to Uni, i have an idea of how heavy the macbook pro is but i can live with it. I'm doing a business course in Uni so i would be using the device mainly for writing (~5000 word) and printing essays, downloading resource material in the form of PDFs, word documents and lectures recorded in the format of "flv" from my university website. Of course i also like to play GAMES when i have the time. I like playing FPShooters like Battlefield Bad Company 2 but i know the iPad 2 can't do such a thing, but i am willing to play some casual games such as Cut the Rope, Angry Birds etc if i had to choose the iPad over the Macbook Pro. Therefore is the iPad 2 sufficient to be able to do the things I've noted above or is the Macbook Pro a better alternative? (I've also heard people complaining that the iPad 2 should have got a Retina Display...is the standard display that bad???) Looking forward to your opinions! thanks! I knows it's a really long post sorry!
