Currently, I have a 15" Mac Book Pro that I tether to my Droid . It works well but I'm hoping to use the iPad instead of the MBP. Additionally, my wife plays a lot of bridge on Yahoo so this will fill that time while traveling. E books is are a high priority.

Small service business owner. I am usually in a pickup truck and use the A-frame accessory to place on steering wheel when parked. I have a lot of small "fires" to put out, so I need to be ready to move but often have a lot of time to "Park".
Hoping to find efficient ways to be productive and efficient without the luxury of an office setting (married with 2 young children can be distracting for ALL parties).
Social Media Marketing "on the fly"
Want to find way to invoice during workday, as we invoice around 30 customers per day, but small $$ amounts. Can be monotonous and can fall behind quickly.
Want to eliminate working all day....then coming home to work all night. FAMILYFIRST when possible.
I'm buying an iPad at the end of this month and I've recently found out some amazing apps on the iPad - one of them being Gusto (a Programming/Web development editor + FTP client in one) and using it for certain work that can be done on the iPad using Pages, surfing the Web, chatting to friends and will be able to use the iPad for going on IRC. I can see the iPad replacing a lot of what I do frequently on the computer because of some of the wide variety of apps available on the iPad App Store because of its large screen. Of course, the Gusto app won't replace heavy projects that require a lot of typing (and other stuff on a computer - after all, iPad is something in between a computer and a smartphone), but for doing small work or updating existing websites / projects / etc - it would come in handy and be fun at the same time. The only downside to the iPad is that it doesn't have a built-in camera which would of come in handy for chatting to friends...shame Apple didn't include one built-in as it would be a considerate replacement to a netbook - of course, it's a lot different to a netbook, but it would replace a lot of common things for a netbook. Surfing the web, apps, chatting, games, etc. The other thing is the lack of Flash - there's some Flash game online that I play frequently and it would work on the iPad if it had Flash, but obviously there's no Flash on the iPad. And I don't think the developer would make a version for the iPad or at least, an HTML5 friendly version which would work in Safari.
I am part of a team in my school to explore the use of iPad in education. Presently, I am using the iPad to replace bringing the laptop to the class. The iPad is definitely a boost to education. Light weight, long battery life, instant startup, access to web-based applications (minus Flash), Word, Excel, PowerPoint abilities and tons of Apps for every occasion.
Got the ok for doing something radical in the classroom.
We used the iPad on a recent cruise to store photos from our cameras. We could have uploaded them to the cloud, but Internet time was expensive. The iPad really is a good photo viewing device. We saw several of them being used for this in the common areas of the ship.
I've started using it as an e-reader. After trying a few sample books, and a free version of Huckleberry Finn from Project Gutenberg, I paid for an escapist fiction, best seller (American Assassin by Vince Flynn). While absorbed in reading it, I realized that I could read in total darkness because of the back-lighting, turn pages easily and hold or prop the iPad in multiple positions, adjust the text size, bookmark automatically and look up questionable words on the spot. Also, this was a $20 book that cost $13 on the iPad. Lastly, my wife and I have something of a hoarder disorder when it comes to acquiring books. We've run out of room to store them. The iPad will allow us to take our library to the next level. Wait, is that a good thing?
I use my iPad mainly for movies, reading, browsing and yes it has made me more regular on the treadmill
"get caught?" what kind of school do you go to anyway?
Any school that frowns on computer usage needs to wake up and see the sun!
