First of all, I'm here to say that everyone should have their own opinion in using whatever device they prefer without being a self-centered critique: be it Android, Surface Pro 3 or whatever. I use a windows PC and Apple iDevice. I have felt that the iPad, while it looks good and thin as a tablet, is not worth the upgrade from the previous generation. Yes, it runs faster and have a huge library of MOBILE apps, but the iPad Air 2 offers nothing new to take advantage of that huge screen estate nor offers any new feature. Believe me that I do love the quality Apps on the iPad but there is something seriously missing here in this tablet. The only usefulness of the iPad seems to be just casual couch web surfing, YouTube videos, looking at high-res photos, some mobile gamings etc. Is the iPad closer to become a laptop replacement? Not even close IMHO. As a student, I find myself often frustrated with using the iPad as a laptop replacement. I felt that it strongly needs a Apple stylus digitizer (be it sold separately) to jolt down notes in class accurately. Those clunky third party stylus just does not work as well compared to the Android line of Note. I am NOT going to tap on the touchscreen keyboard to jolt down notes as I find it to be slower and often distracting from lecture. Next, the iPad does not even render my university PowerPoint slides correctly with the layout messed up. Often, students (not only me) have misread slides due to this. The only solution is to load it up again with MS Office for better render (which does not exist back then) So, how do you guys use your iPad for work and studies? And secondly, Why do you even need an iPad?
