So I recently returned my MacBook Pro Core i5 due to hardware issues over the past two months. My local Apple Store didn't have an Airs with 4GB of RAM, so I had to order online. Where that leaves me regarding computer usage for the next week or two, is my iPad. Now, I do go to college so I have access to a few libraries and I work in one of the tech offices for the college, so I have computers I can use there. So over the next few weeks, I'll be updating the thread(assuming people find it interesting) Last night was my first night without a Mac, and everything went pretty well. I was able to do everything I normally do without issue minus one big hick up. My friend who goes to college about 8 hours away wanted to video chat using Skype. She was missing home and friends from that area, so she actually wanted to see someone's face. I took my roommates MacBook Pro and video chatted with it, he wasn't overly happy, but he survived. This morning, I had a paper due I had forgotten about. Luckily I had emailed a copy to a fellow student to give me feedback on. I found the email, opened it up in Pages made a few edits, reformated and sent it off to my Professor as a .doc. And then I went to the library where I read Freakonomic in iBooks and browsed the web. Another day where my iPad wasn't a burden as a computer replacement, but actually worked better then a laptop in some cases. I have my files backed up on external HDD, so I can get to them from a borrowed computer, but hopefully from here on out, all my needed papers will be on my iPad, which is where of course all my word processing will be done. Has anyone else done this? Or just thoughts? Am I going to end up borrowing my roommates computer a lot or running to the library/work to borrow a Mac there or is the iPad going to cover my needs?
