I've recently been shopping for ultra-book (laptop) convertibles (win-8 devices) and from that experience I must conclude that iPad and tablets in general really, are no longer of any interest to me at all. Some of these with i5, 4gb ram and 128GB SSD are sub-$1k. They blow away the similarly priced $830 iPads with only 1GB RAM and slower 64GB flash storage. The connectivity alone leaves Apple's iPad in the dirt with USB 3.0, BlueTooth 4.0, built-in card readers, WiFi, mini-HDMI and so on.
Some of the smaller pads and tablets still look kinda interesting tho. There's the way overpriced iPad mini and the Galaxy line which seem like they might have a place in a photographers bag. <shrug>
Agreed. I've owned a Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and iPad all at once, and they're each good for different things. I don't really enjoy creating much content with the iPad, but it is great for viewing content around the house and on the go.
If your MBP or MBA folded into a tablet form-factor would you still feel the same?
