First of all, this isn't for me. It's actually for my mommy. Ever since I got my iPod touch last Christmas, she wanted one. Now that the iPad is out, she really wants that. I asked her why and she gave me the response of, "Because it's like a big iPod Touch and it's cool!". But I'm thinking about asking her if she wants a Macbook instead, since her HP laptop has cracks around the edges. She pretty much does the basic stuff, like edit her pictures [nothing big], internet, yahoo messenger, & music. Other than that she doesn't do much, but she does use her laptop ALL the time. Is the iPad a good choice for her? Or should I convince her to get a Macbook instead?
