ipad laptops - Which should you choose?

If you've got a couple of hundred spare pounds and you can't decide on ipad laptops, then you need to do a little research! Both have their advantages and dis-advantages, but we hope to make your decision a little easier!

We've looked into both Laptops and iPads, and analysed their strengths and weaknesses to hopefully bring you the definitive answer about which one you should invest your hard earned money in.

First up is Apple's iPad. With the launch of the iPad 2, Apple has struck yet another blow in it's battle for the hearts and minds of consumers. On board is the revolutionary dual-core Apple A5 chip. This powerful little chip allows multi-tasking, but at the same time it won't drain your battery unreasonably thanks to it's effiency.

Battery life is another plus the iPad enjoys over laptops, with the minimum expected time from your iPad weighing in at around ten hours. This is seriously impressive when placed beside the average laptop battery life of around three hours.

The iPad 2 has front and rear-facing cameras to allow facetime calls to other iPad users. They can also be used for Skype calls. Don't forget, you'll also have access to hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store.

Moving onto the trusty Laptop. Unlike the iPad, a laptop provides almost limitless customisation options! It will run almost any program, not just ones officially approved by Apple.

You'll also enjoy CD-ROM support, and even CD and DVD Burners on expensive models. Also present is USB support, something shamefully missing from Apple's effort!

If you put the two arguments side-by-side, it's apparent that apart from aesthetics, the humble laptop trumps Apple's iPad any day of the week.
