3, won't take up unnecessary space on my ipad

4, don't have to deal with finger controls

5, not really willing to compromise editing a raw file for a jpeg just so i can have the feature

6, and mouse/pen and pad control on the computer will be more precise.

still could be fun
This is what I do for pretty much the same reasons. I do sometimes edit on a powerful 64-bit laptop, but I can't get the laptop's monitor properly calibrated and I end up redoing the best images on my desktop when I return from vacation.

I've been dealing with huge RAW and pretty large jpeg files for a few years now and went to two external 2TB hard drives (one at home and the other at work and synchronized monthly). My library is around 1TB now even though I delete more than 90% of my clicks.
