iPads are terrific devices for people who love to work on the go, create cool projects, or just binge watch stuff on a bigger screen than a phone. However, there is one major downside we hear from many users: it's so hard to use for typing! The layout is a bad mix between a traditional keyboard and texting on a smartphone. All the smudges (especially if we're eating and working) make screen cleaning a frequent necessity.

It looks like those problems may have been solved, thanks to a gadget shared on TikTok by @skipperfilms. This device takes the iPad and creates a laptop-like experience for users to do all sorts of things. It's so easy to get started!

How cool is that? People are loving the feel of the old MacBooks that harken back to some favorite movies and TV growing up. @jippsee said, "I don’t even have an iPad, but now I want one so I can get this and live out my Elle Woods moment." Vixyann exclaimed, "Omg, my zoey 101 dreams relived!" Even Caitlyn Storey admitted, "Omg my childhood dreams have come true! I want a pink one!" 

This device could be a game-changer for people who want to combine the flexibility of using a tablet with the utility of a traditional laptop setup. And yes, the magnets are safe to with the computer hardware, so don't worry about erasing things like on an old floppy disk or other memory-storage devices.
