I’ve been using it for a few weeks now.

It has made the ipad about 5x more useful. It has some drawbacks: it’s actualy thicker and probably even heavier now than my Air. And it limits ipad usefulness a bit for book reading, propping on laptop (it’s great on a table or desk), and games, but wow, it really makes it AMAZINGLY much more usefl for me. If I did not need to do as much blogging and cutting and pasting as I do, I could use it all the time basically.

Here is what I like about it, compared to laptop:

battery
battery
battery
always connected to LTE
much less buggy, no crashes, no stalls
fewer distractions from updates and shit
many apps work better, e.g. email (in some ways)
touch screen
better for video
bettter for messaging and facetime and skype
better for things like words with friends
better for facebook
kinda better for web browsing
I still use and need the Air but use it mostly at home now, and evne then, half the time I use the iPad instead of the air. Often I use whatever is at hand.

A few drawbacks of course, and no flash. And I wish the zaggfolio case were thinner–it doesn’t need to be so thick to hold the ipad and the keyboard. I think they could shave almost a quarter inch off if they would slim down the case itself. And the ipad needs to be easier to remove.

But if I go on short trips, restaurant, waiting room at vet, I take only ipizzy.
