I finally jumped on the iPad bandwagon. Since Apple announced the arrival of the new iPad, the existing iPad 2 went on sale and I took advantage of that sale.
Before Christmas, Neil and I talked about getting an iPad for my business. He thought it would be great for me to take to meetings with brides and use it to show them my portfolio, instead of taking my MacBook Pro like I have been. My first thought was, it’s not completely necessary that I bring something to my meetings. I could go back to bringing my albums but then I met with a bride and groom who actually mentioned that one of the reasons they decided to hire me was the fact that I was organized in bringing my laptop to show them more than just my portfolio. When they told me that, I knew that it was time. That was several weeks ago and when I started looking into it, I found out that the new iPad was getting ready to be released. I thought I might want the new iPad but when the details finally came out, it wasn’t much more impressive than the iPad 2 but it was going to be more expensive. After thinking it through I knew the smart thing to do was to purchase the iPad 2.
And boy, was it a great idea! I’m currently blogging this from my iPad right now. Among many other awesome things about the iPad, it will allow me to showcase my work without having to clear the table from food or coffee, and get my MBP out. And! It fits in my purse! I look forward to using it to better serve my brides.
