On the surface, these two devices seem pretty similar. They’re both tablets, they share a similar form factor, but in practice, they couldn’t be more different. I’ve used both of them deeply for the last few years, and in this video, I’m gonna help you decide which of these devices is right for you.
If you’re new around here, my name is Brandon, and on this channel, I share practical tips to help you improve your focus and creativity. And if that sounds interesting to you, consider subscribing so that you don’t miss out on the videos that I post here every other week. All right, back to the video.
One of my beliefs is that there is no right device, but there is a right device for you. And when figuring out what that is, I find that it’s helpful to define what you’re hoping to accomplish by adding a new device to begin with. So let’s talk about use cases, because I think that’s where we’re gonna find how different these two devices actually are.
The iPad has amazing utility, perhaps the best of any device. At the time of this video, it can do most things. It’s part phone, part computer, part notebook. When it comes to utility, the iPad can’t be beat. But the challenge here is that it’s a jack of all trades, master of none. For each of the things that it can do, there’s a specialized device that does that thing slightly better. If I’m looking to communicate with someone, my phone is way more convenient for everyday carry. And if I’m looking to type a document or write some code, I’m way more comfortable on my computer with its large screen and comfy keyboard. And the same is true for writing. Yes, the iPad checks some technical boxes for its writing, but at the end of the day, it’s an inferior experience to actually writing on paper. Not to mention its plethora of apps are just begging to distract you. And that’s likely a good segue into the other half of this video, which is comparing it to the Remarkable 2.
I think it’s safe to say that the Remarkable is on the opposite end of the utility spectrum. It really only does one thing, which is writing, and being a great alternative to a traditional notebook. It is world-class at that one thing and that one thing only. Some will argue that it’s good for reading documents like PDFs, but I find it hard to call it a universally good reading device when it doesn’t support Kindle Books. As a general rule, I’ve found that tools need to be opinionated to be as powerful as possible. Excellent tools are willing to be bad at some things to be truly great at others. To give you an example, the Remarkable lacks a backlight because adding one would have increased the distance between your pen tip and the display, which would have hurt the writing experience. They were willing to make the device unusable in the dark so that it could be a better writing experience in the light where most of its users would use it.
In closing, if you’re looking for a Swiss Army device that can do most things, check out the iPad. It’s a truly impressive piece of technology. It’s also an amazing digital art platform. And so if you’re a digital artist, it’s an easy recommend there. In my opinion, that’s its one true world-class use case. If you are a professional, aspiring professional, or student who’s looking to think more clearly and gain more focus, I highly recommend you check out the Remarkable. But before you commit to it, do yourself a favor and check out the other E Ink devices that are available as well. I’ve got a complete education of all the compelling options in this short playlist right here. Go check it out. And until next time, have a great day.
