If I had an iPad and a Windows 8 anything, chances are, I'd be using the iPad. Last year while visiting Sotuta de Peon and Merida, there was a woman from Mexico City that had a 9" iPad. She was using it to take stills and video. I thought to myself while holding my DSLR: "I gotta get myself one of THOSE !"
Thinking about trading my iPhone 4S for a 5S. Not sure if I want the newer iPhone 6 just yet. Apple needs to fix a few things first. Maybe in a year or I'll just wait for the iPhone 7 and get the 6. No hurries here.
IMHO, I think that Apple would sell more product if they would modify their pricing model to be a bit more competitive. I've been on the fence for years considering an iMac for my photo editing and computing needs. Trouble is, I can build a PC that is just as good from a performance standpoint for less than what I'd pay for an iMac configured for my computing needs.
In fact, a year ago, I did just that. CPU, CPU cooler, motherboard, 16 GB RAM, 250GB SSD and two 1 TB HDD drives, case, power supply and video card came to less than a similarly configured iMac (or base model for that matter).
I may still get an iMac just for the simplicity of an all-in-one and to get rid of the cable-jungle under my desk. I've always liked Mac's and I'm comfortable with either platform (Windows/Mac). Its Apple pricing that keeps me away.
I work in IT and it gets a bit much trying to keep up with all of the technological changes but having a familiarity with that technology makes it a bit easier to separate the fluff and vaporware.
Just got back from Seattle this evening. I was up North for 30 days. Yes I have a newer Acer laptop with Windows 8 on it. But what did I take with me? my older windows 7 laptop and an iPad. I just cant get used to liking Windows eight. Dwain (aka Lilmsmaggie)
Why did I take the iPad with me? Because my laptops are 15 inchers and when I go out for coffee the older iPad 3 was much more practical. Now If I could only become an expert with windows 8 and my iPad.
Hey, I got to hold both iPhone 6s plus and the smaller one at an AT&T store and it would be fun to show off with either. But I'm happy with my 5.
The trouble it is, the older I get, the harder it is to try to keep up with new technology
