iPad is a versatile piece of technology that is increasingly populating our workplaces. Is it going to replace laptops and desktops ? I personally don't think so because each one of them has its own distinctive territory. For instance , iPad is completely unpractical for heavy writing tasks like drafting a thesis proposal. I just can't imagine myself doing it on a tiny keyboard like the one on iPad. However,iPad is marvellous for note taking. It enables you to take notes everywhere on the go.
