It depends of what you want to do, I would say no for writing a thesis or doing a lengthy PowerPoint, but I use it everyday at work because I move a lot around and it works very well. I have all my documents with me, I can take notes in meetings and my desk is less cluttered
As everything in this world, iPad has it's ups and downs, same story with Laptop. To be honest, for fun work, entertainment iPad is good, but if talking about work, research and other things, I prefer laptop, because in my opinion it's more handy.
I am quite the opposite. In my line of work fuere are tons of meetings and the iPad offfers the flexibility for presentations, spreadsheet analysis and discussions, as well as proyect management.
I'll second that, I'm off work at the moment due to health reasons and thanks to the iPad I have been able to continue running my project.....I've only had to crack open my MacBook a couple of times in the last few weeks.Originally Posted by Ptybb1

If you're just watching stuff, then iPad is a great tool. If it's more about typing, then you either want a bluetooth keyboard or a laptop. Don't get me wrong, the on-screen keyboard is not bad but it is no replacement for a real one once you wanna enter more than search criteria on google.
I find cutting and pasting a lot a drag on iPad, so writing a bunch wouldn't work well for me on iPad unless I didn't cut and paste much. For that, I still much prefer a PC or laptop, or even a netbook, because I can use a mouse.
I Have been using ipad2 since long and have stopped using my pcs because it is the best beast in cutting pasting and emailing technologyOriginally Posted by Kaykaykay
If you get a Smart Cover and the Apple Wireless keyboard its as good as a laptop if not better. I am a college student and use this more then my MacBook Pro just cause of how easy and fast (Responsive) they are. Get the iPad 2. Its awesome.
