Perhaps you could get them to recognize the problem by doing a words per-minute test on one device and then the other so you could fire back at them with some statistics about how much less productive you will be using the iPad?

Sadly, this is a mandate from the chief owner/investor in our company. He is a relatively young investor whiz-kid who may be brilliant but has, per witnesses and staff observation, the attention span of a mayfly, a blind belief that the latest Apple product must be purchased and used regardless of its suitability to a task, and an all-but-stated-out-loud belief that old people like seasoned reporters and editors, are both uninteresting and not to be checked with on such decisions. (I'm not kidding. Apparently when he first visited our major newsroom, with two young short-skirted lovelies in tow, his first comment was "Where are all the young people?" Shortly thereafter some young and traditionally-attractive women were hired to handle front office traffic. No attempts were made to hire to fill vacancies in the newsroom of course.)

I share your thoughts on balancing my desire to do a good job against not adding to my own problems and that of my working colleagues, by struggling to be flexible enough to do workarounds with inadequate equipment.
