    I had a hard time giving up the actually book , but quickly got over that with the convince of just carry the iPad around, enlarging text if need be, it love it!

    1. Show off in class when I'm taking notes.
    2. My iPhone was stolen awhile ago and I missed Apple's amazing Os.
    3. Xfinity App is amazing

    I got the iPad first. The iPd came 3 months later. I use both for different things. Though I play the same games on both sometimes.

    I use the iPad instead of a computer and use my phone when I'm at work, or around town. I don't carry my iPad with me unless I'm going on vacation. My phone does wonderful things for me and would chose it of I could only have one item.

    when i buy my asus eeepad transformer prime i will use that one for documents, movies and games, and use my ipad as social, gaming and entertainment apps.

    best of both worlds right? :P

    iPhone was my gateway drug to iPad. I fell hard for my first iPhone because of all it could do, but it's puny compared to iPad and isn't nearly as navigable for many things.

    iPad is much better for Web surfing and navigation, for writing emails and notes (though I still use a laptop or PC for real writing, even though I have an Apple wireless keyboard for iPad). I use iPad for many other things, including news, Netflix, this forum, Skype and FaceTime, banking and investments, travel and travel planning, shopping, reading and signing documents from work, doing the occasional work presentation. I don't play games.

    Reading is my primary pastime, and I read books on iPad for about 1.5 years, till I got my Kindle Fire, which is a more convenient size for me for books, especially on the go. I prefer its weight and size for hours of reading.
    Hey

    You mentioned that you still write on your desktop/laptop even though you have a wireless keyboard , and you could get a mouse also. What makes you still write on laptop/desktop. Is it cause all you stuff Is not on the iPad or is it a matter of convince ?

    Just wondering, I do see laptops going away and tablets dock and wireless keyboard as replacement to laptops

    I have an iPad and iPhone. Still work on my laptop , but that's mainly cause I needs Microsoft development env, quick access to USB, connection to other peripherals, etc. for gaming I only use my mean machine desktop pc.

    My work requires three monitors and two PCs. Even when I'm doing only limited work, I need a laptop to really type, mouse and cut and paste easily. No one at my company could do our jobs with a tablet. Many of us have them, but they're marginally useful. Just depends on each person's or company's needs.
