I've noticed a trend in businesses - ipads are popping up more and more often as a replacement for a laptop.

Given the choice between a laptop or an ipod, which would you select, and why?

Considering this, as I'm going to college in a few months. Debating which piece of technology to invest in

i'm not a fan of touch-screens, really... and apple software seems pretty limiting (though i'll admit i'm not an expert).
I have a laptop an ipod touch. both of which i enjoy!

I feel like ipads are a bit sleeker and more... enjoyable? but laptops are more practical, you know?
depends on what you're using it for, in the end!

definitely go for a laptop. ipads are not laptops! the os running on an ipad is the same as an ipod, not a mac. writing up papers will be extreme difficult if not impossible (not sure if there are any writing apps but there could be)

My mom has one, and she rarely uses it :I. Its like one of those things you indulge in when you have extra money. Nothing beats a big screen and a nice keyboard.

Definately agreeing with laptop, I don't quite understand the EVERYTHING IS TOUCHSCREEN phase nowadays and and a firm believer that touch screen is an awful idea for computers haha so delicate and fragile whereas there's quite a few laptops that can take a beating ( not saying that you don't take care of your stuff, of course, but you'll want longetivity I assume ). Also, FINGERPRINTS

I can't judge more seriously though because aside from occassionally doodling in MSpaint on the touch screen comps at like best buy or fry's or something I've no touchscreen computer / ipad experience

But again my vote is laptops for practicality

mewstara called it for every ipad owner i know .. rofl

also.. a laptop will probs last you longer if you treat it nice enough. My laptop will be 4 in the fall I think.
In 4 years the ipad will be old news.

ipads dont even have a usb slot I mean come on. At least other tablets have usb slots!

Tablets are pretty useless and underdeveloped at the moment. They're more of a show-offy gadget than something that's actually worth using. You're much better off with a laptop.

Or even better, use the money you'd use on an ipad for a Tablet Laptop. The one where you plug your tablet in and can draw directly on the screen. That way you have touch screen if you want, keyboard options, and its perfect for art.

One of my fav artists I watch uses a Toshiba Tablet PC. You have to make sure to get the wacom tablet supported one though.

Today I made a lemon loaf.
Baking is so stress-relieving for me.


Do you guys cook? Bake? What your favorite thing to make

i like cooking yes!! baking is fun too. i wish i cooked more, but i don't have the time. my favorite things to cook are things from scratch like i've got a chicken breast and i just add season until it tastes ok

what a boring answer
BUT I LIKE THE FEELING of cooking a tasty meal all by myselfs

despite the nickname ingrained i tend to not like cooking/baking because i get really impatient and then i'd end up eating anything undone (see cookie dough instead of cookies to be made). or i get extremely paranoid of messing up and i don't want to waste any more ingredients.....
but if i'm able to concentrate on that day, i can enjoy it. but i need some assistance or else im going to light the house on fire

my family and i cook ALL the time, we don't go out to eat and we grow/make most of our food. my favorite thing to make is this asian salad with this creamy gingery dressing it is the best. or cookies, cookies are always great

I bake, can't cook very well. I take forever, and need instructions when I do. I make cookies, cakes, stuff like that. :3

baking is a major stress-reliever for me, as long as i get to choose what to make.

oh my goodness, iko. that is wonderful!

Has anyone here been rock climbing before?

It's incredible. Really, it is.

I went once. I was afraid of heights and got stuck and the people in charge laughed at me.
But it was lots of fun, really. No sarcasm.

Also I am totally digging this creature's swirly ears/belly.
