I wonder if iPad vs. laptop/PC will become the great debate (forgive me if it already is here; I'm new to the forum). In our household, we're trying the experiment of going only with our iPads (a 2 and a 3). We've been at it since August last year. So far, it's worked, but not without some minor challenges. We're not great technoGeeks - we don't do app / program development. But we do create some content (blog posts, articles, etc.), so it fits our needs. I'm about to take on an assignment where I'll need to draft documents that are emailed to clients and interface with their remote server. My hope is an investment in a laptop is NOT in my future.
My iPad is now my traveling device. But there are many things that just can't be done conveniently on the Pad. It doesn't replace the laptop or desk top, rather it is more of an extension to the other two.
I could never be without my mbp,for instance i hate the copy and paste on ipad,its a doddle on the pro and i prefer a proper keypad.
I have the new iPad , but I believe that in the next couple of years that the newer iPads will get better, and better. This iPad 3 is just a sample of whats to come
