I have a friend, really I do, and I'm trying to convince her to buy an iPad 2 to replace her Sony laptop. She mainly does e-mail, FB, surf the web, IM's, watch videos, listen to music, etc. She does not really do much business stuff (spreadsheets, accounting, etc.) nor does she do any networking stuff. She said she would consider getting an iPad if it does everything her laptop will do. I think given her uses, she would love an iPad and it will be much easier for her to do the things she wants to do with it. Are there any drawbacks to having an iPad vs. a PC given her typical uses? The only snag that I can think of is that an iPad does not do flash. (Or does it?) What happens when you try to load a flash web page on an iPad? I'm not trying to stir the pot, I truly don't know. I do not own an iOS device yet. I think the things that she would gain using an iPad would heavily outweigh any disadvantages. Comments, advice, opinions? TIA.
