Tim Cook uses his iPad for 80% of his work

Apple and IBM are trying to push iOS devices for enterprise use. It is certainly a good sound bite when trying to sell iPads to enterprise to be able to say that the head of the world's most valuable company does 80% of his work on an iPad. Overall, it isn't all that hard to believe either.Or, maybe Cook is just claiming that to be true because
Whether or not you can trade in your Mac or PC for a tablet is really a personal decision. Or, it may even be something of a leap of faith. You may assume that you absolutely need to have a traditional PC, but may find that you can get by with just a mobile device, if you have to.

Valuable in terms of market cap, and Apple is by far #1 on that. Apple's market cap is $561.3B. Number 2 is Exxon at $440B, and Google is number 3 at $257.4B.

Quality expensive very good apps, will be needed for enterprises, not average priced ones. Starting from $20 Playstore really needs good quality apps. This POS that is in charge of Playstore, needs to be buttkick ed out, right know.

I don't think I could do productivity on a tablet. Don't get me wrong it's possible. But for me nothing beats a computer. That being said I think most of what Cook does for business is probably handling emails which is really easy on an iPad.

After building a PC for roughly the cost of my 32 GB iPad Air, I can say that I wholeheartedly agree - nothing beats productivity on a good PC. The fact that it can also play almost every game I throw at it at 1080p 60fps is just a nice cherry on top. Still, unless there's some way to do multiple displays with an iPad, it won't really come close to PC utility. Related: i.imgur.com/9le0Xut.png Also, my PC build for the interested: imgur.com/a/fTxul

"Tim Cook uses his iPad for 80% of his work" I think it is not true. In my opinion he says so just because he is CEO of Apple Inc. It would be more reliable if it was Microsoft Surface Pro 3 not an iPad.

i Disagree, i think he does in fact do 80% of his work on an i Pad; what most people are failing to factor is that 80% of his workday is about 0.31% of that of the average corporate U.S. worker. So, iN actuality, he doesn't do much - he probably spends more time charging his i Pad at Starbucks than actual work!
