This is my first post, so I apologize in advance for any rambling.
I'm going to be graduating college next year and my macbook I've had since senior year of high school has started to become run down.
I got an unexpected research grant this summer which started me looking at getting a replacement computer. I was going to go with a macbook pro, however, the announcement of iOS 5 and iCloud made getting an iMac & iPad 2 (my original idea) seem like a good idea.
I'm planning on going to Grad School, which I will most likely be commuting to, so the iPad 2 would be perfect for portability. Also having access to all my email, calendars, documents, etc would be wonderful. But also being able to have all of my documents etc be stored in icloud and sent to my other devices, it seems like a really good idea.
I'm thinking of an iMac since getting an iPad 2 with a laptop doesn't make sense to me. Also having a desktop for major work at home/sharing it with my fiancée as a main computer seems like it makes sense than doing the same on a laptop.
So my question is: is there any reasons that anyone can give that the combination of an iMac w/ Lion and an iPad 2 with iOS 5 is a bad idea?
Thank you all so much. I really appreciate it.
