iPad versus Tablet for working away from the office

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Dynasty

   Being a Technology Power user for the last 15 years I have yet to own a Tablet PC or iPad. Yet I am thinking of getting something that is touch-screen so I can have clients sign documents while at their location and one of these two devices seem to be a good fit.

   I like my 13.3" MacBookPro that can dual boot to Windows XP, but somehow with the clear casing, it seems to weight like a ton of bricks and was looking into something lighter like the iPad or Tablet.

   Have anyone use any of these that they found work well for them or found any issue that might be something to think over before jumping?

I would love the ipad - and it would be great for what you are talking about - Good Luck!

From what I have heard, the iPad is the coming thing for that function.

Song - If you are wanting the physical signing feature I would hold off on the iPad.  I have had mine for nearly 2 weeks and I love it but the signing feature doesn't exist yet on the Apple iPad.  I have read that there are Apps being written for this feature but I do not believe any are available as of yet.

Song, Knowing Apple, they will have apps galore and I would think very quickly.  I have not bought an iPad as yet but getting closer. :-)
