With some occupations, people make more annual income than others. Obvious. But we typically see figures in terms of means and medians when in reality, the difference between the person who makes the most and the one who makes the least can be significant. The chart below shows the spread for major occupation groups, for several decades.
I’ve found the iPad to be a great niche tool, much more highly functional than my phone in meetings, because of the larger screen, and with the addition of the extremely lightweight keyboard, I’ve found that taking notes and referencing information is very easy.
I still believe that you need a fully powered desktop or high-quality laptop to get production work done. Their is just no substitute for a keyboard and mouse or trackpad to multitask and move quickly between apps, acesss a file system and move between multiple tabs in a browser.
I’ve also learned that ‘lap-typing’ on the iPad Smart Keyboard is not really feasible, you need a flat surface like a desk to really be able type fast on it.
But those, “sit down and work” sessions, where you need a PC or MacBook are more reserved for production times, vs quicker sessions in meetings, at lunches, or in the evening in bed where you want the full screen but really don’t need a laptop.
It’s in those scenarios where the iPad, it’s everlasting battery, convenience of touch, and the quick availability of a ultra-thin keyboard are appreciated.
