Title: iPad2
Post by: spinner on March 03, 2011, 07:33:28 PM
Not going to comment on "IT". However a friend has advised me the current crop of the original iPads are now selling reduced (here in North America anyway). The refurbished ones aren't a bargain but they seem to have dropped to what I consider a reasonable price. If these deals aren't available U.K. side then I apologize for mentioning it. If they are, would this change anyone's mind? I'm looking at the base model but wonder if 16 gigs is enough. I want to set up an electronic portfolio like Jonathan has done.

As most of the image files you place on it will be about 1/2mb, should be plenty of room.  ;D

Good point, my math is getting a bit rusty.  :-[

Looks like I have a 32GB iPad (really, I had to check)

At the moment here's how it breaks down....

3.4 GB audio
11.6 GB video
1.5 GB photos
2.4 GB apps
0.01 GB books
9.5 GB free

The 1.5GB contains 2,291 photos so I guess a 16GB iPad loaded with a few apps (really, you need Angry Birds) would probably have space for 10 - 15k of your best pics.

The videos are a couple of promo vids + half a season of Ugly Betty and a couple of seasons of Peep Show.  There are only 434 songs on there (I don't listen to music on it much).  3 full length books fit in 0.01 GB.  Portfolio app full of pics weighs in at 50MB.

16GB is PLENTY for a photographer.

BTW Hasselblad have now launched their app - shoot tethered to a MacBook and pics can pop up on an iPad for the client to rate in real time......

Technology is limited only by people's imaginations.  :) I'll go for the 16 gig then. Don't do video and have a new ipod for music (that I very seldom listen to). Thanks for the breakdown.  :)

Yup! 16gb would be plenty of room for all of the future Angry Birds updates! LOL

There will be no Angry Birds on my iPad. I've watched my wife get sucked into the Farmville vortex! Turned her into a souless zombie.  :o :'(

If you dress up like one then she'll recognize you again. Problem is that you might get more pain than pleasure. LOL
