I intend to acquire an iPad for my personal use. I however need to be sure that the iPad will adequately satisfy my requirements. Of particular is whether the iPad 2 will be as portable as my laptop which I take with me wherever I go. I would like to have the iPad due to its convenience and light weight. I would like to know whether the iPad processor can withstand the same work done with a laptop.
Can the iPad handle similar amount of work as a laptop?
I have the iPad 2 and a laptop too and I will tell you the difference between these two. IPad is more portable device than laptop, has more battery timing than most of the laptops. My iPad gives at least 5 hours to maximum 10hours of battery backup. The only difference between a laptop and an iPad physically is that you can't plug a USB or insert a CD in iPad. The rest of the things are exactly the same. You can create documents, view documents, email people, use photo editors, use video editors, play games, watch movies, read eBooks etc. In fact there is a point where iPad defeats the laptop in some specific purposes. It is entirely up to you.
About your question regarding the iPad processor to be able to withstand the load of work. Well, the Apple devices are the most optimized devices. The Apple developers know that any software will run perfect no matter what processor they use in their iPad. They have optimized each and everything. You might have seen that dual core Android phones last only few hours on battery on full usage but iPad 2 is a dual core A5 too but it gives more battery backup on full usage than any Android Dual core phone.
