My work buddy wants to get an Ipad. I told him to look at other tablets. I cant stand apple and I want him to spend his money wisely.

If you don't know enough about tablets to tell him yourself, why in the world are you trying to give him any advice at all on what to do?

How can I convince you not to say 'Bro'. Looks like we are both F'd.

iPad all the way. It's the best by far.

Please don't steer him wrong by recommending a inferior product
iPads are magic portals to the universe

What kind of phone does he have?
If he currently uses an iphone, he should get the ipad (the apps transfer to the ipad for free, no need to buy apps again)
If he currently uses an Android based phone, a good quality android tablet (Samsung, etc) would be better for the same reason.

If he doesn't have either, I'd get the iPad. It just works. I have both and use the iPad a ton more.
I have two iPads and an HP TouchPad with WebOS and Android ICS on it. The Touchpad is not used nearly as much as the iPads are.

I like Android, but I think the iOS devices are easier to use, especially for novice computer users.

Im a MS guy myself, but I love my Ipad. I let my mom use it, saves me a headache since she cant figure out Desktop or Laptop MS computer(she is 70 and not a computer person). Apple products are stupid easy for most people to figure out. That said, I love the Samsung tablets.

Tell him to get the iPad. You won't have to waste time fixing it.

The kids gave me an iPad for my birthday last summer; I have hardly used my laptop since then. I like the way it sinks to my iPhone.

My dad owns an ipad and likes it very much, he uses it all around the farm to take and send pictures, respond to e-mail, and whetever. All from the seat of a tractor, never had a problem with it. My uncle, who is also a farmer, owns one and uses it constantly as well with no problems. So unless you have first hand negative experience with ipads, let your friend get what he wants.

Exactly.

And furthermore, why try to convince someone out of buying something that works great...every single time....exactly as it should?

I'm surfing from my iPad now. Why the hate?

What's wrong with him buying an iPad, if that's what he wants?

I'm with you on Apple overall, but I have to ask.

windows is fucked when it comes to anything other than desktop / laptops. They have a history of lack of support / development.

How many Android/surface tablets have you had to "waste time fixing"?

Do you have a rational argument against the ipad or is it an emotional-13-year-old-girl argument?

Let him make the "mistake" of getting one.
If it's really as bad any some people make it out to be, he'll get rid of it himself.

Have fun funneling money to a company that makes its profit by stealing others ideas, then claiming that it was actually the other company who stole it from them.
