» The wrong question

Ben Bajarin on the faux question of whether or not you can do “real work” with a tablet, a question I’m really getting tired of:

I firmly believe my iPad is a better web browsing tool than my PC. I believe it is a better entertainment device for games, watching movies, and TV shows. I personally believe it is a better art studio. With all the use cases we can list for our smart devices, the central issue keeps coming back to what do you want to do with it.

Of course you can do “real work” on a tablet.  Can it do everything a laptop can do? No. Can it do things a laptop can’t do? Yes.
