Re: [iPad] Quick iPad poll...mini, maxi or other?

said by JohnInSJ:

Yep, I know all about the various options. Obviously an arm-based recompile of windows running on an arm CPU isn't going to run x86 binaries

I mean "work" - office. One Note. Plus, whatever comes down the pike later. (hint - this is why there is a desktop. Wonder how powershell will work on it, it's supposed to be there.)

OK, just checking. For me, "work" would mean Visual Studio, SQL Server manager, Photoshop, et al. Although expecting such things to be useful on a tablet may already be expecting too much!

I work for a Microsoft partner and we have a Surface due in tomorrow. I'm actually interested to see how it works, although the Pro model would be more my speed. (Though I can't deny I'd enjoy a Surface RT as a writing tool, since I do all my writing in Word as it is, and there are no decent iOS alternatives that don't have issues.)

Nevertheless, I'll be ordering an iPad 4 for the home as my wife is a serious Apple fanatic, and we both carry iPhones.

Yep - the same for me - I have a workstation-class laptop, the surface would let me not drag it into meetings yet sill let me do pretty much everything I need to do in a meeting seamlessly. The PRO probably more so, but that's not out yet.
