The iPad, Your New Traveling Companion
Do you travel? Watch movies or listen to music? Send mail on the go? How about using the web? You are looking for an Ipad, Mac’s new gadget. Almost everybody has heard of it but most are not sure just what it is. The answer is very simple.
The Ipad is about as close to a laptop as you are going to get without it being a laptop. It comes as a tablet that uses a touch screen to interact with it and is incredibly small. It is a mere half inch thick and around 9.5 inches by 7.5 inches with almost all of it screen. Since it is a touch screen many people worry that it covered in finger prints. The reality is that the screen is arsenic free and smudge resistant, Arsenic free is not the only green quality it has because it is PVC-free.
If you are traveling on a plane and don’t feel you can watch “Weekend at Bernie’s 2” its OK, you are all set. All you need to do is pop in your 64 gig flash drive and watch something else or if you are still on the ground you can watch streaming video through any WiFi connection. You are going to love the picture you get. The 1024 by 768 pixel resolution will keep you picture clear and the ambient light sensor will make sure it is bright enough. With its 10 hours of battery life you are not going to go dead on the run either and the fact that it only weighs a pound and a half won’t kill your shoulder.
These are all great features while on the move but sooner or later you will get to where you were going. How usable will it be then? You are not going to be typing 90 words a minute on a screen. No worries. You can get it with a carrying case that also includes a keyboard so you can get some work done. And, because it is hard to type looking straight down you can get a stand that fits right in the case and gives you a more natural way to type.
For any traveler that does not need a full-blown lap top the Ipad is perfect. It can do just what you need it to do and in a size that is incredibly small. For those travelers, this is a must.
