I really want an iPad. I know, I know, they’re overpriced and they don’t play Flash and I shouldn’t encourage Apple’s plan to take over the world. I still want one though.
My laptop is perfectly fine, only cost £400, and is obviously portable. It’s not great for carrying around though. It’s actually pretty heavy. The widescreen makes it a little less portable. And, because of an old neck injury I’m not supposed to haul around too many things (tell that to my handbag).
So, a tablet would be handy. Especially because I like to write outside of my own house where there are less distractions. (Hello, wireless keyboard!) Another reason why the laptop is a bad idea. It makes it too easy to just watch some TV or just check my email again. Or just do that thing that… what was I saying?
You get my point.
But I don’t want any tablet. I want an iPad. Just the same way that I wanted an iPod and no other MP3 player would really sate that thirst. Maybe, despite my job which means I should know better, I’m every marketing person’s dream. People always make apps for Apple before Android. The iPad cases are prettier. The machine itself looks sleeker and shiny.
Sadly, I don’t have a spare £400 lying around so I guess this isn’t really an issue. But still, iPad, I pine for you. Get into my life, please.
