Yay! I succumbed and bought the new iPad!
A few entries back (from several years ago) had me claiming that I have no use for an iPad. Well, I got one for my Mum’s birthday anyway then, as it didn’t do her eyes any good to play games on a small iPod Touch.
So why did I decided to get this third generation iPad now?
- I had enough of reading books on the small iPhone screen. Yes, it’s still very much convenient, but it really is straining my eyes for quite a bit. I’ve taken to reading e-books so screen size kinda matters now.
- It’s a lot more convenient to bring around for overseas trips compared to a laptop. Well, no choice there if it’s a business trip, but I like to stay connected during my holidays as well so the iPad does help. Also partly because my beloved white MacBook of 6 years seems about to conk off – takes several boots to start the OS; so instead of another laptop, the iPad fits my purposes just fine.
- I discovered that I can use the iPad to remotely connect to my office e-mail network. So if I do need to check on something at home afterhours or over the weekend, I save the hassle of booting up my office laptop and just do a quick check off the iPad. Neat!
And that’s how I justified my purchase of the 32gb white new iPad!
Absolutely happy with my purchase!! 😀
And this is my first entry with it!!
