    I'd dare to guess that most people who say you can't use an iPad as your sole computer have never tried it.

    I went all iPad about 4 months ago and it's been great. One thing I do ALOT is writing and with my bluetooth keyboard and dropbox, I'm set.

    I don't do much else but surf the web, watch video's, and e-mail. In fact, for my purposes, an iPad is much superior to a laptop. I love being able to read books and watch video's on my Ipad as opposed to a laptop. To show you how much of a non-issue processing power is I'm even using the ORIGINAL iPad.

    Computer replacement for me as well.

    More accurately, notebook replacement, physical textbook replacement, and bookshelf replacement...in addition to desktop replacement.

    I have about six 2,000+ page textbook pdfs open in iannotate, they flow smoothly, allow for notes, bookmarks, etc and tabbed switching between any of them.

    I take notes with a stylus in class and got rid of my notebook last semester (goodnotes, notability ). I have all the slides downloaded directly on it, and take notes on the slides as if I printed them.

    I use pages and the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard case for typing papers, emailing them to the professor, and printing them.

    The nice part is all I take to class is my iPad and stylus. Not lugging around a backpack is very, very nice...and I still have all the textbooks, handouts (I take pics of them, and can fill them out with stylus as needed) with me. I even have flashcards for studying readily and instantly available...

    One of the best purchases I've made. And I admit at first I considered it a "toy" as well, until I experimented and learned how to use it.

    Also I'm coming from android tablets..

    Thank you for your input milkmilklemonade. As a part time student, I too am bringing just my iPad to class and it is more than enough.

    i have a macbook pro and an ipad2 and although i love my iPad it could never be my sole computer,i love my pro when i want to do lots of typing and doing this involves a lot of that i wouldn't be without it,also things like copy and paste are much easier on a computer(for me anyway)....

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    The topic of this thread is likely one of the reasons Microsoft reportedly will unveil its own tablet computer today.

    I agree they're different. The debate is over how much computing power mere mortals need. And, can it be crammed into a tablet.

    I am going to college and current netbook is breaking down ( HP Mini 100-1000, great first pc ) so I need some info on what to do next. I hate Windows and android so I want to go Mac or iDevice. I was considering three things;

    1. A Mac Mini, and just hang in there with the HP

    2. An iPad, with a potential wireless keyboard

    3. A MacBook air, I love the portability!

    I know most of you will say iPad but if anyone has experience with two or all, what would you recommend?



    Also, first post so be nice!
    You didn't say what major.
