An ipad or any tablet for that matter cant take the place of a laptop if thats what you need. If you have the money id say get a nice macbook, but if your like me and you want the best bang for your buck just go with dell. I recently just bought a dell laptop inspirion17 for myself and I got my wife an ipad. The ipad can really only be used to surf the web, its kind of like an iphone with a large screen, but like i said it has major flaws that will make it obsolete after google releases their tablet pc and theres a host of other tablets hitting the market for xmas and early next year. I think for the business we are in no tablet pc is going to be able to do all the things we need it to do, so you should probably just stick to a laptop that suits you best. Hope that helps Jeanne

Thanks Jerry for expanding on your answer, yes, most helpful. I think a new laptop is really what I need so I'm going to put that on my list for Santa.

Best,
Jeannie

Jerry, that is helpful feedback - if you have more advice on this topic, I am in need of a new laptop and had given some thought to the ipad. But I've heard agents say not so great in interfacing with the MLS which would be a big bummer. I'd appreciate any guidance you'd like to offer.

Thanks and best,
Jeannie

Ipads are cool but they are about to become obsolete so dont waste your money buying one. They are the biggest rip off. The two biggest downfalls are they dont supposrt flash, and you cant add memory to them or insert sd cards. Anyway, there are a bunch of new tablets coming out on the market this year in time for xmas that will support those things and make the ipad look worthless.
