. . . but I have to raise my eyebrows at her product review today.
LookingForLissa Product Review: Kensington Keyfolio (iPad stand and keyboard)
The short version: I like it. A LOT.
The longer version: For someone who types as much and as fast* as I do, the iPad keys are irksome. They’re large . . . but not QUITE large enough to type normally. The electronic keys mean that just as you’re starting to get up a rhythm autocorrect will pop up and ruin your day. (Damn you, autocorrect!!)
As long as I’d had the iPad I’d been using one of those magnetic cases that shuts off the device once closed (yeah, I do miss that feature). But in the interest of more and easier typing – and posting – I purchased this doohickey.
There's more at the link.
Looking at that combination, I can't help but compare it to a conventional laptop computer, like this Acer Aspire model (similar to my own system):
The cost of the laptop is considerably less than the iPad-and-case combination, and it's far more powerful as a computer than any tablet, and it already has a keyboard: so why not buy a laptop in the first place, and save several hundred dollars? Or am I missing something?
(OK, Lissa, you're free to return fire about how I just don't understand the appeal of the iPad!)
