Why do you guys hate iPads so much? They are comfy to watch movies or browse 4chan from your bed.
What's the general consensus about the iPad 2018? Worth upgrading if I already got an iPad Air 2 or not really?

Thats pretty much what people use tablets for. Now why hate for ipad? Because it does piss poor job on these two of it main features.
First, the movies, ipad has a led screen, its also 4:3, most video content is 16:9 so you will have black borders, dont forget its led so even in dark room they will be visible. Compare all this to galaxy tab s with oled screen, samsung went full retard and changed aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3, its a shitty move but its oled, watch 16:9 content and you screen space not used by the image is just off, there is no backlight and no visible iliuminated black borders.

For tasks like web browsing and everything else android and its ability to actually have usable filesystem/filemanager, ability to install third party apps, extended storage is 100x better than locked down ios

At the moment, no. There are many tablets that have good specs but all of them have lcd screens. On a tablet thats made for video, lcd is simply not acceptible anymore. There is a rumour that samsung is about to release galaxy tab s4 which has amoled screen, unlike s2 and s3 its gonna be 16:9.
Wait for s4. If you are short on cash there is old tab s 10.5 from 2015, works well with h264 1080p movies (99% of releases) but doesnt have hevc hardware decoding, also cpu lacks in power, apps that use lots of memory will struggle (web browsers)

I've used android and windows since 2010 and I've never even thought of getting an Apple product, it didn't seem logical to me; android devices have so many features at such a low price in comparison. However, yesterday I bought my first Apple product for the purpose of college work, media consumption and social media, and I am blown away at how premium it feels:

>Buttery smooth animations that just seamlessly blend together
>Clean, minimalist design
>Extremely optimised performance
This includes 3rd party apps - surprising how Googles apps seem to work snappier on iOS than on my android
>Unmatched screen display
The 120hz display is just god like

I still believe iOS is lacking in certain areas, especially customisation, and Apple have made some really idiotic decisions (removing the headphone jack on the device I use as a music player) However the feel and snappiness of an Apple product, especially with the iPad's 120hz screen is just unreal. Like wow. I'm praying that they don't remove the headphone jack on the next generation iPad, or if they do they actually replace it with a superior port, but either way I think i'm in love with Apple now.
I understand that this is sort of a shit post, I haven't used the iPad long enough to give my full in depth thoughts on it but it's still amazing never the less.

One other thing to note, before getting the iPad I spent at minimum [3 hours trying to get a premium, minimalist look for my android and it still doesn't match the cleanliness of iOS

The real question is does Apple have the balls to put a touchscreen on a macbook. This would probably destroy IPad sales completely. It's only matter of time before their competitors force their hand and they have to include touchscreens.

Forget about me tablets, get a real computer inb4:

>Mac is overpriced

a 27" 5k iMac costs $1799

lets say you wanted to instead build an equivalent PC:

A good 4k monitor will set you back $600 dollars, and you're still getting 4k instead of 5k (3840 x 2160 vs 5120 x 2880)

Using this build: ($1150)
https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/vHD48d/great-intel-gaming-build

And replacing the SSD with a 60$ HDD bumped up to $80 for the fusion, halving the RAM cost, and replacing the graphics card with the equivalent radeon pro 570, adding a 40$ network card brings us to $879 for a comparable computer.

Keyboard and mouse, $40 (assuming we're being pretty cheap).

Cable, 5$ (again assuming we're being pretty cheap.

Windows: free/pirated

Total: $1524

That's a difference of $275 dollars, but for that you're getting...

-5k resolution instead of 4k
-An all in one instead of tower + lots of cables
-MacOS + the ability to dual boot Windows or Linux, vs pirated windows and no Mac opportunity
-Warranty + support
-Computer already built for you, vs having to build it yourself
-Built in bluetooth and wifi support
-apple cloud and comfy syncing across your devices


When you consider all that, the Mac suddenly doesn't look so overpriced.

Exactly! A lot of people say they can't afford apple products.

Me? I can't afford NOT to buy apple products.

I work in finance and earn about $100 an hour. I work relatively long hours and for me, time is money.

I haven't got time to tinker around with Windows, Linux or Android. Wasting 2 hours updating is $200 dollars worth of my time. Tinkering around for a few hours with Pajeet ROMS on an android is hundreds of dollars of my time.

Apple gives me a premium product right outside of the box. I don't need to upload files from my phone or iPad to my iMac, because they do it automatically for me. I save several hours of my time over the lifetime of the devices and that adds up to thousands of dollars of savings when you consider the time saved.

Only thing I could imagine doing on an ipad is watching netflix on a decent screen with OK battery life. If you actually have to do anything even remotely productive it is a much better idea to buy a chromebook and put a full linux distro on it.

Also last I checked doing any kind of media consumption involving codecs like flac/mkv etc is a fucking pain in the ass because apple likes you to use its shitty proprietary media codecs and you have to get apps through their babbysitter appstore.
