    I prefer the Ipad simply because I have a MacBook and IPod. I like the way their operating systems work. They are easy and quick and allow you to customize it to my liking. It would be great to have an IPad to be able to check stuff on the go, quickly and easily and basically anywhere. Although I plan to buy my mom a Nook for Christmas.

    I don’t use any of these things and I am doing just fine. I just got my first laptop, so I guess I am a bit behind in the times. I do get a little jealous when I see people surfing the internet from a tiny hand held device, though.
