Has it recently become necessary for you to work from home? Would you like to work on the move, taking your work with you and catching up when you can? The only hiccup is: you’re not sure if you want to carry a bulky laptop around with you wherever you go or whether you prefer something a little lighter.
Have you considered iPad hire? With the right accessories, you can use an iPad for all your office or entertainment needs. And with hiring you can see if this device is really what you need. Here’s why we think you’ll love it at first unboxing.
6 Reasons why an iPad is Better than a Laptop
If you’re not all that familiar with the ins and outs of Apple’s iPad range, you can be forgiven for thinking that they’re primarily used for entertainment. While they are top notch devices to watch movies and play games on, they’re also well equipped for some work functions as well.
Here are a few reasons why getting an iPad, whether it is via purchase or rental, is a good idea.
iPads are so much more portable than your average laptop. The iPad Pro barely measures a quarter of an inch thick and barely weighs 1.6 pounds. This makes it small and lightweight enough to put in handbags or small work bags. It’s also easier to maneuver an iPad while you’re working on the couch or in bed.
Accessorise to Simplify
If your work involves a lot of typing, it’ll be easier to use a portable keyboard. Durable and magnectic, it simply attaches to the iPad without the need for cables or pairing. You can also use an iPad stand which will elevate your iPad. That, together with your keyboard, will create a useful little work station.
Extended Battery Life
Like all other Apple products, every iPad has a longer than average battery life. Able to function for 10 hours of average use without needing to be recharged, you’ll easily get a day’s work done without the hassle of your battery running low.
iPads have a wide variety of the usual applications such as calendar, alarm, web browser, note pad among others. Apple has also gifted new iPad users with its handy iWork suite. This adds options like spreadsheets and presentation software. Design applications such as OmniGrafle are also quite popular.
Step-up from E-Reader
iPad’s iBooks has been labeled as one of the greatest e-reader apps on the market. A free Kindle reader is available in the App store, making this feature a plus point for anyone loving a good read.
Simple Presentation Tool
If you’re considering renting the iPad for work related presentations, you won’t be disappointed. A high quality screen display and optional HDMI adaptor cables allow you to connect your device to large TV or projector screens, which comes in handy during scenarios like product presentations.
iPads give you more ease of use and with all the added features, applications and accessories you’ll find it much more suitable than a bulky laptop. Enjoy what technology can do for you!
