I own two MacBooks and an iMac7. I’m buying Apple since 1978, so I’m indeed no one trying to bash Apple.
But besides the fact that the tablet architecture in general isn’t a suitable model for me and my use cases, because if I have the space for a tablet, I prefer my MacBook Air, the iPad seems to be, at this stage, too close for me.
It adapts the closed iPhone app store business model, which is acceptable for me on a smartphone, but if I have something in size like the iPad, I want the freedom of a laptop – I’m used to since years.
If I can only run and install apps, that will come thru the app store powered by only one carrier then I definetly prefer my laptop, where I can choose how to power and how to install apps.
It’s that easy…
