I'm a dried in the wool Apple affeciatinato. I thoroughly enjoy all things Apple. That's not to say I don't like and use other products. I haven't made the jump (yet) to Apple computers and have several pc's that I use at work and at home. I recently bought an HP Omni 10 - a 10.1 inch tablet to use as a tablet. It's a nifty little device but it can't replace an iPad no way, no how. Windows 8.1 tablets have the windows boot time down to about 20 seconds and 10 seconds to wake from sleep. The iPad doesn't need to boot to use it. It's just on. CORRECTION- I WAS DOING IT WRONG. IT IS A SECOND TO WAKE FROM SLEEP BY PASSING THE LOGIN. On iOS, I have many keyboard shortcuts that signify my several email addresses. I type 3 letters and the email address is up. On the windows tablet, I've got to type in the complete address and it's a pain in the rump. I keep wanting to speak the text I'm typing..can't do it on the windoze tablet. I MUST use a mouse to efficiently navigate the windows environment because the touch points are tiny..not so with my rMini. The differences are endless but the main difference is the speed of use and lack of portability. To effectively use the Omni 10, I have to have it on a stand with wires coming out the bottom connecting it to a powered usb hub. Even though this is a great tablet that runs Windows 8.1 well, it has earned a dedicated spot in my man cave to the left of my Windows 7 desktop. Those two computers are networked together and just a lot of fun playing with the stationary tablet. I took it out on a field trip yesterday and tethered it to my iPad Air, so without a wifi connection, you can't do much. On the positive side, I doubt I'll ever boot my dell laptop up again, this tablet is way more efficient. I've got Adobe Photoshop 7.0 installed on the Omni and several other Microsoft branded software titles on the Omni, so that is something that can't need done on the iPad so that is a plus for the a Omni10. Again, I really enjoy and use my 64gb Omni 10, but it will not replace an iPad or a good android tablet for that matter any time soon.
