    Cheaper and more bang for your buck.
    I agree. Unless you have a really good reason, the Android tablets are 25-50% less and virtually all the functionality most use.

      Well, I bought one (16 gig Ipad 3.) That makes two computers I don't know how to use (this one, and it.) Now looking at mounts, telescoping styluses, etc.

      It apparently has free Dragon apps to download, so there must be some voice control?

      Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

        I just bought an ipad mini, but I'm having trouble with the screen icons. I read that the screen uses the conductivity of the fingers to work. If I am a C4 quad, would the conductivity of my pinky finger be compromised?

          I've never used a mouthstick.

          I have no bed mount yet. When I do find one, I suppose I'll need a telescoping stylus?

            I have this problem on my Nook but only for one job and I think it has more to do with my fingernail hitting first. If you have a splint that holds a pen there are styluses made especially for those of us with conductivity issues. For basic swipes to turn pages or run the menus the side of my hand works as well as finger tips. Yes, at C4 you probably have conductivity issues.

              The Twelve South Hoverbar is a 21.5" flexible arm (like the old gooseneck lamps) and clamp stand for the iPad. It has a cable manager that will run your charge cord along the arm too. Combined with a usb extension cord, you can leave it plugged into the wall. The clamp at the base can clip onto anything up to 1" thick. With an adapter you could clamp it to a bedrail.

              Played with bombs- No SCI, Brain Damage enough that I require a chair and a caregiver.
