Since I have looked into it, I have noticed many things about my iPad that I haven't seen before.

#1: When you put five fingers on the iPad screen, a bar of apps will come up below what the normal screen is, an list all of the apps that you have in random order.

#2: When your in an app, if you slid five fingers to the left or right, you will go to a random app.

#3: When you push the power off button and the home button at the same time, you can take a screen shot.

#1: The iPad is over six times a big as the iPod

#2: The ipod stays charged longer than the iPad on low brightness

#3: The iPod is better for gameplay and the iPad is better for work

#4 Since the IPad was made three years after the iPod, it has more features

#5 The iPad is more like a laptop than an iPod is, making it better for work

#6 The IPad takes longer to charge than the iPod

After reviewing the tech specs, I believe that the Alienware M14x is the better laptop to buy. First, If your looking for a computer that can hold a lot of files, the Alienware can have double of the Razer Blade. If your looking for the newest windows operating system, the Alienware has windows 8 pro, while the Razer Blade only has the basic Windows 8. Both of these laptops have a 2 mega pixel camera. If your looking for a light weight computer, the Alienware M14x is .15 pounds lighter than the Razer Blade. Also, the price difference between the two laptops. The Razer Blade is $2,399, while the Alienware is only $949

With the macbook pro, there are many differences between the 3 laptops. First, the case of the macbook pro is aluminum, and the ones of the alienware and the razer blade are plastic. The display of the macbook is 13.3 inches, the alienware is 14 inches, ad the razer blade is 17.3 inches. So, if your looking for a laptop with a large screen, that would be the razer blade. If you are looking for a laptop with a good price, you would want to get the alienware, as it is only $949, the macbook being $1499, and the razer blade being $2,300.
