I need a laptop for work stuff more than anything.
I have a crappy, though only nearly a year old , toshiba laptop. Hate hate hate windoze 8 with a passion. It'll have to last another 6 months or more ( unless....sneaky.... DD2s little notebook finally dies and she can have it- it'll do her!)
I have had an old ipad since the early days and liked it a lot, though the last 6-12 months it's become obsolete and limited. Still makes a good TV though LOL.
Recent update to ipad air- and I am in lurve!! (I'm an android gal re phones but various work related functions don't work on android!).
Would I be so impressed with a mac laptop? Are they just as intuitive and "bomb proof" the way that the ipad " just works" is a huge appeal (eg air print- no set up/driver malarkey- just hit the button!).
I guess the old "you can run a net work at home with a mix of ac and PC all wanting to communicate with each other" doesn't hold water now? I use PC/ipad/android and they all used rop box/email to each other/share photos etc.
