If you were planning an overseas trip & wanted to be able to get on hubpages would you buy an Ipad ?
Or would you take your laptop around with you ? I am trying to decide how to keep up wth hubs as we travel Europe etc later in the year .
I prefer to have my own so I can work anywhere as we travel rather than use internet cafes but am wondering if that is too expensive .
Looking forward to helpful ideas thanks !
No you dont need an ipad to get on hubpages overseas. in fact it would be harder to type. A laptop is a solution that makes more sense, an ipad and a laptop are not the same thing. Internet on an ipad is too expensive in my opinion, its almost as much as internet for an entire house.
I travelled to Spain last year and having an iPad was REALLY helpful. A friend travelling with me had a laptop and we hardly used it because the iPad was so convenient. So I would respectfully disagree with Entourage_007. You can get free wifi at McDonalds; or buy a (fairly affordable) SIM card that will work throughout most of Europe. Entourage_007's comment that internet access with an iPad is more expensive than a laptop doesn't make sense to me because you have to buy an internet plan for both- in my experience it's the same price. Also remember that if you have an iPhone that you can always use it as a router so you don't need to (1) buy the 3G iPad, saving you $; and (2) internet on your phone plan is often included or at least cheaper than for the iPad. In any event, like I said, you can just use free wifi at cafes, libraries etc and many towns now provide it free generally. Good luck and enjoy your trip :-)
Trahn has the answer. I take my Ipad instead of a laptop now as it is small enough to fit inside my Scotte jacket or in my purse. Also many countries dont need you to remove it to go through securtity. I love my Ipad! Macdonalds are everywhere too.
While I love my iPad, if you only want to read hubpages then you are fine, but if you will want to actually create content then you're out of luck, the pad does not work well at all for creating a hub. They need to make an app, but have not done so, I guess not the demand, but it would be really nice.
Take a look at the hub I put together on the issue, so far the poll is 7 to 0 in favor of wanting to be able to publish from the iPad with an app. http://czczcz.hubpages.com/hub/Article- … th-an-iPad

What is the difference between a laptop, iPad, Notebook and Tablet or are they all the same?At face value they appear to be the same, just in different packaging.

I am excited about all the latest technology that has become apparent in the 21st century. This is especially true about tablets! From the introduction of the Ipad in 2010 the evolution of tablets has become more and more like laptops that I begin to wonder who really needs one. Tablets are...

Would you replace your computer with an iPad?I'm in the market of purchasing a new laptop but a friend suggested that I buy an iPad instead.
