re: 6 Ways To Run Windows On An iPad
Seriously? Just VPN (iToys support VPN) to your office and then RDP to your Win7 box (has to be Pro, Ultimate, or Enterprise, if you're running Win7 Home you need to upgrade to one of those editions). I've been doing this for years from many mobile devices from laptops 14 years ago to NT 4 Terminal Servers to XP in 2002, through Vista, and now Win7 & Win8. Wyse's RDP client, PocketCloud Pro, is a great way to do it at essentially zero cost once you buy their app, which is pretty cheap. None of this x$/mo bit.

Wow. Do your research. Remote access clients like Pocket Cloud and Logmein and many others have been available on the iPad since the inception. And there is Office for iPad. I use word and excel for the ipad all the time. There are several office apps out there that work great.

Why would one buy an iPad to run Windows? There are toyblets that run Windows natively and are a heckuve lot cheaper than the overpriced Apple gadget.
