Is an iPad better than a iPhone or should I just carry both with me?


Well it will depend on your main use. If you want computer functions an iPad could be useful.

Good Question. I depends on your budget and what you want to do with the computer. A Mac cost about twice as much as a PC. If you are mostly doing Games a PC might be better.
