Re: Just posted: Apple iPad 2: Tool or Toy?

Why should any serious photographer choose iPad over this?

That's simple. Battery life. You see, ipad battery tops out 10 hrs (12 max). The Thinkpad with 9 cell unit can go 15 hrs. Since batteries are swappable, that can be doubled or even tripled. When is this serious photographer going to get any sleep?

With quad core hyper-threaded CPU and 8 GB of RAM, he may spend all his time working in photoshop and not even bother with angry birds. The Rovio IPO would have to be canceled and the fragile ipad app industry would collapse wreaking devastation throughout all of world's economies and then where would we all be?
