Original: My dad wants to buy an iPad, but I say a laptop will be more functional for the family. My mom being the reasonable one in the house disagrees with both . Anyways, we already have a 10.6 imac and i guess we would just use it in the living room to plug all our schedules in so everyone knows where everyone is. But I think we would get more use out of a family laptop. Who do you agree with? Revised (F.Y.I): Maybe I didn't word it correctly but we're not "arguing" per say. He's just asking me for opinions on what we should get. He's leaning toward iPad but he's open for suggestions. I don't want an iPad for myself. Way to throw it out of proportion guys!
