Leaving the Laptop Behind - Can you live with a tablet?

Leaving the Laptop Behind - Can you live with a tablet? | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Ever since tablets came onto the scene, I’ve been hoping for a good way to leave my laptop behind. It’s not just that eliminating the bulk of my laptop would make packing light easier–I’m also interested in avoiding the epic redundancy in my travel bag. Given how powerful my iPad and Android phone both are, it seems like I should be able to rely on their combined processing power for at least a few days. Many of us carry more computing power in our pockets than used to reside in offices. So, on a week-long trip cross-country, I decided to give the laptop-free lifestyle a try.

 

PM - When is the time going to come when you can leave your desk/lap top behind and live (and work!) with just your tablet!

 

Me? I'm waiting for Microsoft to come into the 21st Century and release Office for the iPad. Not too bad, only three years after the release of the iPad they say Word/Excel & PowerPoint will be here in November!
