In Reply to: Windows 8 Tablet VS Ipad by samasabagh
I needed (well, really "wanted") a new laptop at the end of 2011, and I considered all the various tablets including the iPad and Androids. However I needed to run three Windows programs (machine embroidery, recipe program, & WP) in a PC environment, so I choose the Samsung series 7 slate tablet PC w/ touch screen and stylus.
I wanted a device that would also run W8, and the Samsung is the tablet that MS used to demo Windows 8 in the YouTube video.
Previously I had a convertible laptop (handed down to an appreciative grandson) and really liked the ability to write/draw on the screen with the stylus - making notes, etc. Now I love all the touch features on my new tablet PC. I have an Android phone so have become accustomed to the touch screens.
IMHO, the first question is what do you want to be able to do on a tablet or iPad, and what spedific, if any, programs do you want/need to run? Once you decide what you want to do, then you shop for a device that will do what you want it to do. Do not settle for a device that has limited capabilites if you need more. Do you just want to get your emails and go on the Internet, etc, (very much like a phone) or do you need a PC that will actually run Windows programs?
