This is obviously well past Christmas, but I thought I’d do a post anyway.
So, for the longest time, I have resisted the inexorable lure of Apple products. With the sole exception of my iPod, I didn’t own a single other Apple product and the idea of buying a Macbook Pro made me feel ill. (I still think Macs are disgusting but let’s just say I’m a little more open to trying one than I was in the past.)
My aversion to Apple products ended this Christmas when I got an iPad.
To be honest, I wanted to get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because I love Google products and wanted to try Android, but after considering the main activity I’d be using my tablet for (drawing and painting), I decided to go with the iPad 2 because it’s got so many excellent apps for drawing and painting compared to Android.
If I get rich someday (heh heh) I’ll get the Galaxy Tab as well, but for now, I’m very happy with my iPad. I’ve been able to do some pretty nice drawings so far although learning to draw on the iPad is pretty unwieldy.
