So y’all know that I’m saving up for my new computer (still!–long story having to do with three separate and expensive issues with my car). I’m planning on buying a Macbook Pro. I’ve been using Macs for nigh onto 15 years, and even though PCs are cheaper, I just can’t bring myself to get one. I remember all the horrid expericences I (and others I’ve known) have had with viruses, worms, hardware problems, and other persistent issues with PCs. I’ve never once had an issue with my Macs (and all were second-hand, too!), and once you go Mac you don’t go back, right?.
So anyhoo, I’m buying a Macbook Pro soon, even though I’m kinda in love with the iPad. I’d love to have an iPad, but I need a full computer more than I need a giant iphone. I would like to have both, of course, but that’s a little too out of my means.
But I had an idea this morning. Steve Jobs, hear this: you know what would really make the iPad rock? A monitor app. An app that would allow the iPad to be jacked into a desktop mac, such as a MacMini or a G4 and work as a display for that computer. With the keyboard dock and the touch-screen, one would have a full desktop at home and an iPad when on the go.
That way I could get my computer-level functionality and programs (storage, speed, word, photoshop, flash, full modem, etc) when I need it, and then all the fun of mobile netbooking and communications and eBooking while travelling.
Steve Jobs, I bid thee–make it happen. Before September, please.–Kthnxbai.
