From day one, the iPad to me never felt like a device purely for consumption. As half the tech industry fell over itself to claim you could ‘never do real work on an iPad’, I saw everyone from artists to technicians doing real work on an iPad. What people really meant was that the iPad didn’t have a full version of Microsoft Word, because that is the only ‘real work’ in the whole world. Or something.
So, what’s the problem? iPad is not a tractor. A tractor is not a limo. Water is not Scotch.
We need to be at the point where the iPad can mirror the laptop set-up
No. We. Don’t.
Everyone has a different setup. iPad is iPad, and it becomes more PC or Mac notebook-like with certain settings, keyboard, mouse or trackpad, but it is not a Mac and likely will never be a Mac.
Get over it.
