    I've *almost* completely abandoned my old BlackBook. love the thing, have done so ever since I bought it. But it's so much simpler, faster, more convenient, nicer to work on the iPad. I do have a ZaggFolio Bluetooth keyboard case which is a necessity at times but the ipad outshines the laptop by light years.

    Well, I'm a PC, so I have a slight bias, but, even if I were using a Mac, I would still say there are certain things I would want either a laptop or desktop for. The virtual keyboard in the iPad is a pain in the ass, for one thing, and I'm seriously considering getting a physical keyboard add-on. Other than that and some possible screen size issues with certain types of apps, I think the iPad could be a replacement for a laptop or desktop, with some adjustment.

    I have the Ipad but I still could not find any reason or justification why I should replace my computers with it.

    I have to say after having my new MacBook air for two weeks I could do without the iPad and stick with the MacBook.

    The iPad is king at consuming content, and you can't turn a MacBook to portrait, but if I had to choose between them, I think it would be the mac for me. it's just more versatile and I don't see the 11" screen being too small (it has a 24" monitor to hook up to if need the real estate).

    I am however lucky in that I can own both, but won't be so stoked to now rush out and replace the iPad when the next version comes out!

    It really depends on who you are. If I were retired, for example, an iPad w/ BT kb might be fine. But I do too many different and demanding things to depend on an iPad alone. But it can do a surprising amount of things that used to be the domain of standard computers.

    Quite a few colleges have gone tablet. So is yours one of them. I know you can get quite a few textbooks through the apps(not sure of the names). I know of a couple of colleges in Arizona,California,Florida. They require a wireless keyboard and some note taking apps. The professors have you email the papers though pages app.


    A friend of mine is going to a Christian college, and that is what she needed. She bought the 64 iPad and just syncs her work to her iCloud account.

    Sounds interesting. No more books to carry. I just wonder how easy would it be to cross reference.

    We took early retirement a few years back & are fully "post PC". Everything we do or need to do is done on tablets

    Android to start with, about to buy a new iPad -

    Heading there myself. Not the retirement part but
    a house without a PC.

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