Have a laptop and an old iphone. I heard about ipad long time ago but never cared for it b/c i had laptop and a phone. I had android phone then went to an iphone. I always thought an ipad was not necessary and expensive. I then thought about it and said... hey this would be a great thing if i want to watch youtube or skype etc and dont want to be on my laptop. Most importantly, i could lye down on my bed and use it whether watching youtube or web browsing or skype. I of course could do this with my iphone but its really small screen. In a way i could do this with a laptop but very uncomfortable if im lying on the bed. I would only use it for web browsing sites and youtube mainly. Would you say getting one is necessary or not so much? Also how many tabs should be the max i open on these? When im on laptop i have a ton of tabs opened. But for ipad i know its harder b/c im not doing this with a mouse and typing everything myself so i won't have that much windows open. Would u say ipad is necessary for me? I dont play any games or stuff like that though. I might watch some movies etc. I also know u cant really do extensive stuff in it so basically it would be like my using it for youtube.
