I received an email asking for opinions on the iPad for pd sufferers. Although to me my symptoms are huge, after reading posts on here, i should consider myself lucky.
I have an iphone and an iPad as does my wife. The iPad is brilliant for browsing and quick emails and id love to get a keyboard like it (butt then I'm a gadget freak).
While the ipad is good for writing mails and forum posts, after prolonged use I find my hands get stiff and that's when the tremors start, after that its a lot of backspaceing. At the end of the day it is not a lappy replacement but diffinately has a use. How much of a use, I guess is down to your specific symptoms.
Hope this helps.
