Giving up the laptop…

We may have hit another “tipping point”; three times in the last week I’ve been asked if it’s time to replace a laptop with an iPad. Three times in a week! Someone at Apple will be happy hearing this.

I have no idea if each of these people should change. iPads are amazing machines, I’ve used one every day since they were launched. I’ve had four and loved them all.

I’m also writing this on a MacBook Pro, another amazing machine that I love.

However…

Every work day, I use a Lenovo running Windows 10; all day, every day. All because of Office. I prefer Outlook on Windows and more importantly, what I do in Excel is not always possible elsewhere.

So my advice to the changers? Stop thinking about hardware and take a careful look at the software your using. Make sure that your using your software in the best place.
