How would you use a tablet for photography?(52 posts) (18 voices)
1. Your Dell monitor is the wrong aspect ratio for viewing pictures (much better for <movies though), so the real difference in resolution isn't as much as you would think.>>>
You do know that the aspect ratio is adjustable and it will still be larger by a good margin. I've never had anything but a positive response showing off shots on the Dell, or even my smaller HP with a standard 15.1 screen.
<<< It also ways more than six pounds as compared to the iPad's 1.5 pounds. Once you get that behemoth out of your bag you'll have to wait for it to boot\load. The only thing more valuable than your time is your clients time.>>>
Who are these people so out of shape that 4-6 lbs is such a problem. When I meet a client my computer is booted up and "sleeping." In fact I flip up the screen and it will jump right into a slide show in seconds if I want.

The Dell is good for 6 hours, but it's a real computer. Still I was pointing out that as a book reader, the Ipad is pretty weak when the others last for a week. And even the Nook reader can take USB and SD cards!
I'm not trying to sell you on this thing, but be realistic. It fills a pretty nice niche.>>>
I just don't see a single reason to choose a IPad over a notebook. It does nothing better or even as well and still costs quite a bit. It's crippled by so many missing features, many Apple fans are amazed. How can it be missing a USB and card reader? The mind boggles. Apple will scramble to upgrade it FAST, mark my words. Go to Google and Type "What's wrong with the Ipad." And you'll see the press cracking down on it like no other Apple product in years. It's a huge letdown.
