Hey guys, I thought I would share my thoughts on the whole notebook vs tablet debate. Apple has released the new Macbook Air 12", it is increadibly light and beautiful. Here is my argument though. There are lots and lots of businesses whose personal have replaced their notebooks with tablets. Many people don't understand that allot of the business work (if not all in some peoples cases) can actually be done on a tablet, and can even be a better option when portability is an important factor. A lot of people argue that many companies programs couldn't run on a tablet, one of the main reasons for this is because the IT infrastructure and programs the company uses arn't built to support tablets. The problem (but not unsolvable problem) is that many companies IT infrastructure and programs are well established and would require a lot of work and money to be able to be optimized for tablets, BUT, the bottom line is, if that company wanted to redesign thier infrastucture and programs to be compatable with tablets...they could! Sure there are always going to be examples that one could argue where it wouldn't make sense or be feasable and thats fine, i am not trying to create the impression that tablets could be everyones main computer. So, comparing a notebook to a tablet isn't all that far out. Especially if your work tasks could be run on a tablet and if your company has build its systems and software to run on tablets or could if it wanted to, then it doesn't matter what you use. So if this is the case for you, then my comparrason below would make sence. (The comparrason below assumes you type using the on screen keybord) New Macbook Air Features vs iPad Air 2 Now got a retina display - Air 2 already has it Now thinner than ever before (13.1mm) - Air 2 is 6.7mm Now the lightest notebook on the market (2.1 Pounds) - Air 2 is 1 Pound Now with 9 hour battery life - Air 2 10 hours Now with 1.1/ 1.2 or special order 1.3 Ghz processor - Air 2 has a 1.5Ghz processor New colours, Silver, Space grey or Gold - Air 2 the same Now more portable than ever - Air 2 at least twice as portable I am a less is more kind of guy and I think with the speed of the new Air 2 being equivalent to many entry level MacBook Airs and seeing how advanced the apps coming out of the App Store are becoming, the iPad Air 2 is a fantastic choice for users whose work flow can allow it. I mean going to work with just your iPad & iPhone, what a pleasure! P.S i am already doing this and it is great!
