Andy Inatko uses an iPad rather than a Laptop

Posted on April 24, 2012

Andy Inatko of the Chicago Sun and Times decided to try to use an iPad instead of a laptop as his portable device. He felt that iOS software was now good enough to do this:

Today, more and more developers are confident that the iPad is indeed a real computer, and are expressing that confidence by making desktop-class iOS apps – with Apple leading the way, of course. The new iPad edition of iPhoto isn’t just competitive with the desktop version, the tactile nature of the iPad makes it superior to most of the available consumer-grade image editors for Mac OS and Windows.

The iPad should not, and never should have, been classified as a content consumption device. With great apps, it can be a great content creation device too.
