I have a tablet, but I use it mostly for my travel, and for reading, I download my online library books in it and read while I was traveling.. sometime for recipes too, mine can also print, and my recent favorite use is for hiking, I download MapMyHike app, and use it when I start my work out ( hiking or walking ), it tells me the distance and calories I spend on my work out, it has map for the route too..

Charlie mounted a holder for tablets so we could put it over the cutting board and swivel it so we could see it and swivel it out of the way when not in use. It was there for about 6 months and the place to mount it is still there but we haven't used it much lately. It annoyed me that it kept going dark while I was using it.

If it is an Ipad, there is a setting that you can set so the screen won't go dark. I have mine set that way.

The problem I have with a cookbook on a tablet is I find locating recipes difficult. It is also more satisfying to have a book in your hand. To me, they are easier to read and flip through. Maybe you could get a cheap book on your tablet and give it a try. One other thing is if you decide you don't like your hard copy book, you can sell it on Ebay if you want to or donate it to your library.

I use the computer, tablet, etc to look up recipes posted on the internet instead of downloading a cookbook. Most of the cookbooks I've bought in the past several years only have one or two recipes worth keeping so I just find something posted online instead. Usually if someone comes on a cooking show to promote their cookbook and demonstrate a recipe from it, that one is the best one and the rest are just so-so.

so I am guessing you guys have Ipads..I keep looking at them,

Got sidetracked yesterday and came across Kindles 10.1inch. Has so many great reviews by hundreds of folks even on you tube.Cheap.. But you always get what you pay for.
I do not need a camera on it but it seems they all come with..It is one pain in the butt to get my Iphone pics on here...Seems you can not right click and place pics in your photo file.Then from photobucket you can not copy the code..

I guess I need a mouse for that.. confused Question

Charlie got me an iPad for Christmas because I have a Mac but I didn't like it so he traded it in for a Samsung.

Since I got my ipad I dont use the laptop very much. I use the ipad for everything EXCEPT writing up my recipes, doing my accounting stuff for taxes, etc., banking.

I have an ipad and DH has a Samsung. I like the ipad because I have an iPhone and they work together. Same goes for hubby with the Samsung stuff.

It's all a matter of preference. I WOULD NEVER buy an apple computer, though. It's just a matter of taste and preferences.

I can't afford an Apple computer so I won't buy one. It would really be a case of overkill for me because I don't need that type of computer. It is great for college, technical work and such. All I do is surf the web, burn DVDs and CDS and store pictures and recipes. No financial stuff.

Frankly, I wish I had the assets that would require me to work on the computer. My sisters spend half their days doing accounting and spreadsheets and whatever. THEN, they send it off to Northern Trust and accountants. They even pay their bills for them.

OMG! We paid a visit to an old classmate from high school who lives in our old stomping ground of Pasadena, CA. He is still a bachelor (can't tell if he is gay) and lives alone in this 17,000 square foot mansion right out of Gone with the Wind. You walk in and see this huge grand staircase. It has 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The entire third floor has this magnificent train setup with all of these collectible and rare trains. The house even had a gilt ballroom. He doesn't work. A trust fund baby.
