  1. Never buy a laptop it a waste of money I ain't buying a 1,000 dollor iPad but I will buy a Samsung tablet lr a LG tap pro

  2. So here is the deal if you are a software programmer or a video editor then get a laptop but if your just going to watch YouTube or Netflix and many write a paper or email now and again then get a tablet!

  3. Yeah but laptops are usually better for heavier gaming and ipads are better for portability and apps. It's all about personal preference

    Me: there is a smaller one, too.
    Without glasses:" there is one with 10inch."
    Me: goddamn i'm gooood

  5. I have an iPad air and thought I can get away with just this after buying a bluetooth keyboard. But there’s a ton of limited actions with apps and accessories. The software updates make it slow too. And I’m approaching 4 years with this thing and the forums say an ipad air’s lifespan is 3-4 years ughhh I really want a laptop.

  6. laptops are masterpieces. Smart phones or tablets cant beat laptops when it comes to pleasure of surfing.Check out by urself. Thanks.
