iPad keyboard - pros and cons
Me: I sure wish the iPad had a real keyboard. Maybe I need a real keyboard attachment.
Other Me: But the iPad is an entertainment device, not meant to replace your laptop. This is what you always say to iPad naysayers.
Me: But if I had a real keyboard, then I could, in a pinch, do some work on it and send long, rambling emails without all those typos.
Other Me: What you're describing is a laptop, and you have one.
Me: How about one of those iPad cases with a built-in Bluetooth keyboard?
Other Me: Heavy to carry around. I thought you liked the sleekness of the iPad, the fact that you can carry it in your handbag.
Me: True. Sigh. The iPad itself is heavy enough as it is, even with no case. But I tried this one case with a real keyboard and it works great as a stand for watching movies. And in a pinch, I can . . .
Other Me: Hmm, right.
