    Hello Shane,

    It depends on what you want to do!
    I have a Macbook and iPad, both for business.

    Of course, you can do more things on the computer, but when you are on the go, the iPad is ideal.
    You can check your email, surf the Internet , login in your business back-office, etc...
    Many applications can be use for business.

    So in order to have the answer to your question, you need to define what needs to be done.

    Michel

    I think they are both good and very helpful in business, The only advantage of Ipad is its portability.

    Depends on what you do. Although it can be pretty handy when coming to office. But I prefer a laptop if I have to choose between iPad and Laptop.

    Ipad have great mobility and battery last longer, more for light usage. Laptop can does all the task which iPad cant, e.g. coding development, drawing, heavy program, run multi task, and type much more faster.

    So my final vote is goes to laptop.

    4. It depends.

    When using an IPad, you can access your business anywhere you want. You can check for KPI's, Product SKU's, statistcis, etc in a comfortable way. The problem s that you will only be limited to things or information that an IPad can only give you right away.

    Unlike on a PC, where you can do almost everything you need to check and maintaining your business. PC has a wider usage too than your IPad.

    To be honest, I say that a laptop or Asus ePad Transformer would be the best choice for business. The Asus Transformer is much more efficient than the iPad2 and it runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The top choice for me would be a laptop as tablets have limits.

    For just communicating with clients and potential clients it's pretty good, but if you're trying to do some actual business then I would recommend a laptop or desktop. There's only so much that the Ipad can do.

    I would say PCs are definitely better than Ipads.

    I don't think iPad can replace PC work. PC or notebook is more convenient to work as compared to ipad. No doubt ipad is good as per its advantage but I can't consider it for my business work. On laptop or pc we can do multitasking more comfortably and easily.
