I use mine for school. Typing on it is not near as hard as people make out.
Someone gifted me a keyboard case for mine that I use occasionally but typing, especially on the new one, is really easy.

I don't go out of the house enough to justify those kind of purchases. I am inside a lot of the day or in the yard. Or on a dog walk taking the kid and the dog to the park. Nothing that would require me to have internet access while away from the house. I'm on here too much as it is.

I do NOT have an ipad. We do have an imac as a main computer at home, and I love it for all sorts of reasons. and we both have ipod touches that we love.

I really did want an ipad for work, but it wasn't very compatible with the software we run, so I had to get a windows tablet, and I do like that for work. It's very portable, the touch isn't as nice as apple products. Windows just doesn't do well with touch screens IMO.

But I have HDMI output, 2 usb's, SD car slots, so that's nice as well.

I"d still rather the ipad, but at this point it still doesn't work and I could have bought 2 or 3 of them for the price of this tablet.

SERIOUSLY! I couldn't imagine not having a smart phone. I really don't know how I survived without it.

LOL I am only going by what classmates and my brother (who owns one and another tablet) tell me. They all say they love their ipads and enjoy them for many things, but working on reports, assignments etc they say they prefer a real keyboard.

I just steal my brother's and play games on it. His tablets are kind of fun, but I can see myself getting bored after a while.

I can't see ever getting bored of it. I use my iPhone ALL the time for internet browsing, so this will just make things easier.

ETA: If our MacBook was solely mine, then I wouldn't need the iPad. The iPad is MUCH cheaper than getting a second laptop. Win win. lol.

I have a smartphone and my other half bought me a laptop a couple of Christmass ago... can't see what a tablet could add that they don't already do.

I can't see the poll from Tapatalk, but we have a laptop, a netbook, several desktops, my Android phone, and my Nook Tablet. I rooted it so I can install whatever I want on it. Now it's a poor girl's tablet. LMAO.

I feel like that too. I'm on the internet too much as is. Most the time I'm either at work where I'm on the computer all day, or at home or someone's house where I can get on the wireless. Or I'm somewhere doing something fun where I don't WANT to be thinking about the internet.
