So I tried out an iPad 2 today (one of my parents brought one home as a temp from their work for the day -- it's supposed to be used in education). I don't get it! Why is the screen so nice?! Compared to my 2011 Macbook Air 11-inch screen, the iPad 2 screen is a 10/10, and mine is more a 7.8/10 (my numbers are not quantitative of course). The second think I'm wondering is this: How many of you use keyboard case attachments for the iPad 2 and use it for notes? It seems relatively functional in that regard. The screen was so clear that I felt like I wasn't typing on such a small device either. I've decided that I'm more intrigued by the iPad, but at the same time (based on my experience with it), my Macbook Air does the things an iPad 2 would do for me. So I am going to continue holding off on a tablet purchase until next year (so I'll see what the iPad 3 offers and whatnot). I just don't have much of a use for a tablet (no room in my life) other than a very frivolous expense... for now. But I figured I'd share my comment on the screen, and ask how people like using a keyboard with their iPad2 (I found the touchpad on the iPad 2 is great for writing, even at a fast pace, but not ideal for taking notes while looking at a board away from the iPad for prolonged time).
