I see your points. My laptop is not even close to that light and wont be any time soon lol since I switched to a desktop unit as my main computer. So a tablet fit all the bills I needed. I do zero editing while I travel, I am lucky to have enough time to start my backup before crashing on the bed most nights. The tablet just fit my needs better then a new laptop at the price I was willing to spend.

Again so many ways to skin the cat, just gotta decide which is best for your needs and run with it.

Yeah I don't do any editing when I use the tablet either. I don't even put raw on it anymore. The JPEGs are nearly instant with wireless transfer so I just do that.

I hear ya though. My old laptop didn't go many places with me. It wasn't bigger like yours but the screen was garbage and battery was lucky to get 2 hours. The tablet won just about every bullet point until the new laptop came aboard. I spec'd both laptops out as my primary machine so I don't have to do multiple transfers of raw files. It's basically a flat tower with all kinds of junk plugged into it at home.

While I’ve said here and elsewhere that the iPad is not ideal for Raw image backup, this notion that the iPad is nothing more than a glorified picture frame fails to appreciate the power and flexibility of the iPad and its apps. For many, the iPad can act as a complete mobile platform to edit and share photos on the go, particularly for JPGs and cameras that use SD cards. As an example, I set up a workflow for my wife’s Powershot SX260, where she imports the JPGs into her iPad using Apple’s Camera Connection kit, edits the images in iPhoto for iOS or other photo editing app (adjusting color, contrast, and cropping mainly), then posts them to a Photostream, blog, or Facebook. The main advantage here is that the images can be shared or posted quickly, instead of waiting 5-10 days to get home before posting and sharing. And carrying the iPad beats schlepping her MacBook Pro around any day.

I’m experimenting with a similar workflow for my 5D3: shooting Raw images onto the CF card and JPGs onto the SD card. I can edit the JPGs on my iPad for sharing immediately. The Raw images get stored onto a mobile hard drive for more extensive processing on my iMac when I get home. So far, this has been a great way for us to edit and share photos essentially in real time during a trip — particularly for important family gatherings like Christmas, baptisms, milestone birthdays, etc.

The iPad has other advantages I can see for pro photographers too. With the right choice of apps, it’s possible to prepare and sign documents like model releases, contracts, etc. There are also apps that accept payments, track business expenses, store copies of photo manuals, schedule client meetings, etc. Folks who view the iPad as just a tool for viewing photos do not fully appreciate how much the device can actually do for photographers.

^^this. I bought an iPad mini solely for photography purposes. For those quick reviews with the model, or a fast edit and post online, it's been great. And as mentioned, using a model release app is fast and efficient. Then you have apps like Square for payment. The tablet is a great field tool with multiple uses, but it will never replace my pc and 30" monitor for serious editing. I just added a Seagate Wireless Plus 1tb Wifi drive to my arsenal, and that allows for extra storage for the iPad.

Not if it has an Atom processor. The true Intel processors will work, though.

There are Photoshop apps but they aren't the same as real Photoshop. No to Lightroom.

This is good to know. So, something like a Surface Pro?

IIRC, yes. You need a full-blown PC to do the job; I think Microsoft hanstrung the OS, since I can run DPP on my Acer netbook with an Atom processor as long as my actual screen dimensions are large enough.

Yes, I have Lightroom on my Lenovo Tablet 2. It's an Atom so performance isn't great, but it'll work just fine for organizing and batch importing / exporting. Spending time in the Develop module will take some patience, however.

A device like the Surface Pro will perform much better however you'll sacrifice battery life.

That's not accurate, an Atom is an x86 processor and will run all Windows apps.

*ALL* Windows apps will run on Atom devices, it is an Intel x86 processor. The poster that said Atom devices won't run Windows apps was incorrect.

DPP runs on my Windows 8 Atom tablet just fine. You're making inaccurate comments.

I believe you're thinking of Windows RT devices based on ARM architecture. ARM and Atom are entirely different architectures, and ARM devices are not capable of running legacy x86 Windows apps.

Okay. I mainly want to use lightroom so I can just transfer from camera to tablet and the possibly to a hard drive. Can you use hard drives to connect? I'm sorry for all these questions I'm about as tech savy as a rock...

DPP?
