The question is whether or not the iPad would support flash. It does not, so let's stop beating the dead horse. Other tablets that would do flash without problems, are not on the market yet, despite the hype. That leaves a netbook, or a MacBook Air as the most likely ways to go. The MBA has built in wifi and is a more powerful machine than most netbooks. It is lightwweight and should hold up well. If 3G is needed, a dongle can be added with a service plan from any carrier, which may be a plus in some cases.
