iPad: A Bit Less Impressed these Days

When I got my iPad4 a few years ago I was amazed at the battery life and rapid boot -- though most of the time it was just waking up from sleep. I hardly ever shut it off.

These days I've seen what an Ultrabook with lots of RAM, a decent CPU, and a solid state drive can do running Windows 7. Now I understand my iPad better. It's always had a solid state drive and a reasonable about of RAM.

For too many years I compared Apples and Oranges. Now that Ultrabooks have similar hardware to iPads in the form of solid state drives they are very comparable, much more useful, and if you put them to sleep as frequently as my iPad sleeps, their battery life is just as amazing as that of the iPad's.
