I was one of the few that decided to wait until the iPad version 2 was released before I spent money on this piece of equipment. I am actually glad that I did wait and as you read through my review of this tablet you will soon see why.
The first that I love about this particular piece of equipment is that it operates at a much faster speed than the original iPad. I know this because I have tried out my friends original versions alongside my own. The other thing I love about the iPad 2 is that although it looks very similar to the original one it is a great deal sleeker and lighter. However what has really sold me on this tablet are the cameras.
As you would expect with all Apple products this one is really an amazing piece of kit and is certainly what the future of mobile computing is going to be like. When it comes to this particular tablet I have found the screen to be extremely responsive to my touch and as yet I haven’t had an issue with regards to how long the battery lasts before charging is required. In fact so far I have been able to use it for two days without the need to plug it in for recharging. This has proved invaluable when travelling. However I still remember to take a charger with me.
Okay the number of apps available isn’t the same as you may find with other less expensive tablets. But Apple are working on this and there are plenty of new apps being made available all the time. I have found that there are certain apps currently available so no longer is there a need for me to actually take a laptop with me when I’m travelling. So of course I don’t have to lug a laptop case on any flights saving me money when away on business.
But these aren’t the only things that have shown to me that investing in the iPad 2 was a very wise decision. The other reasons are as follows:
- I decided to go with the 16GB model and have that this is more than sufficient for my needs, especially as I won’t be using it to store videos or music on it. Instead what I have chosen to do is rely on DropBox to store files that I may need when on business trips and which allows me to view and edit them.
- The next reason why investing in this device has proven very beneficial to me is that unlike a laptop I can simply place it on my lap to use it. Also the risk of it getting hot or overheated is very minimal which was a constant problem I faced when running a laptop for any length of time because the vents became blocked when I couldn’t keep it on a flat surface.
- Of course what really sold me on purchasing the iPad version 2 was the price. For such an amazing device I really did expect to have to pay considerably more.
