MacStories’ Federico Viticci has posted a new article detailing how an iPad Air 2 became his main computer by replacing his MacBook Air.
Many people have said that Apple’s iPad is best used primarily as a consumption device, however Viticci disagrees with these reports and says the iPad has become his favourite way to create and consume content.
Before he got his hands on the new iPad Air 2, Viticci argued that the iPad mini was the best iPad because of its portable form factor. The iPad mini is extremely light and easy to use with one hand.
“I’ve bought five iPads since 2010, and the iPad Air 2 provides the absolute best combination of screen size, comfort, and performance I’ve seen to date.”
Apple’s iPad Air 2 offers desktop class performance on a device that is thin, light, and portable. The device also offers a larger display than the iPad mini, making productivity applications a lot easier to use.
However, the number one feature of the iPad has always been the battery life. Apple’s iPad will easily last a full day making it the perfect device to take on the road as a consumption device or to work as a productivity device.
“Therefore, three months after I bought an iPad Air 2 and three years into my iPad-as-a-computer experiment, I’d like to offer some thoughts on my current iPad setup and how the device has changed my computing habits.
Because not only do I know what the iPad is good for in my life – the iPad Air 2 finally let me replace my aging MacBook Air as my main computer.”
