My first week with the iPad 3

I’ve been using the new iPad since it arrived last Friday.

I have the Verizon LTE version.

I freaking love this thing. It’s become my favorite computer. The screen is so beautiful that it’s hard looking at my MacBook air screen. It’s amazing how many logos on the web are going to need to be refreshed to deal with retina displays going forward.

Battery life is great and built in LTE is a joy.

Im currently flying back from a three day trip to San Francisco. I brought my MacBook just in case but i never turned it on once during this trip.

I’ve gotten used to typing on the iPad. It reminds me of the days when i switched from a blackberry to an iPhone. Strange and hard at first but once you get it, you get it.

The other thing about the iPad that can’t be overstated is that it keeps you focused. You work or engage with one thing at a time. There are no overlapping windows to mess with your mind. Distractions are reduced to a minimum and you can just do what you need to do.

There are lots of folks that don’t think the iPad 3 is a big improvement. I guess I just gotta disagree.

This thing rocks.
