Just getting started in real estate and need to purchase the
best device for "on the road" with clients! Any advice on what
works best in the field? Also, the best buy?
Thanks so much for your help or direction!
You can get an iPad for about $300. Those work well.
You can get a lap top for almost $100 now days. works great and can get a power charger even to your car.
As @Rob Caldwell said, I use iPad for client meetings(I work in software) and it is great.
I have a iPad (second to latest generation) and a laptop. If you're just showing videos/pictures or taking notes, the iPad works fine. If you plan on using Microsoft Office, it's pretty awkward at editing Excel spreadsheets or Word docs so for those functions, I don't care for it. It's possible the non-iOS tablets are better in those regards as the ease of portability and features is a big advantage over a laptop.
I have an app on my iPad that let's me view and edit MS Office documents.
Wow! I'm so grateful for everyone's advice! I will be getting on Amazon this week to compare iPads ... I certainly never expected such a great consensus!!
Thanks to everyone!!
...PS .. Rob ... I would like to know name of your
IPad app for word docs! Thanks!!
