    I currently have an HP laptop that I have had for four years, and I really need a new one. I am not sure if I need a mac or iPad.

    This is the info you would need about my usage:
    High school student,
    Travels with laptop a lot
    Needs a good word processor
    I need access to a collaborative file sharing system (Pocket in my case)

    I feel like an Ipad may be better because of the apps, and because it is more portable. i would get a keyboard for it.

    Next question, how much storage should I get on an iPad? 32 or 64? I have about 10gb of music, and need to store a lot of my school work on there in addition to having pictures & apps on it. The majority of my pictures are on my iPhone though.

    Thank you so much.

    I feel like you answered your own question there.

    However, depending on how old you are, you might just want to hold off and buy a laptop when you go to college.

    I am only a rising sophomore now, so I would have to hold off for 3 more years.

    I think I am going to go for the iPad.

    So, how much storage do you think I need?
