I pre-ordered the IPad broadband WII 32 for store delivery but I also want to consider buying a netbook with adequate RAM and Windows 7. For either free lance work in graphic design or real estate sales, can anyone help me decide the best choice? I like the HDTV feature on the netbook with Windows 7. I need to use Windows 7 MS Office documents and connect to an external hard drive plus have a HDMI port and usb 2 ports. At home, I have a variety of desktops and laptops with different operating systems like Windows 7, Vista Home Premium to XP. I need a small, lightweight portable "computer" to take with me away from the office when taking clients on tours and also to use in the office. I need a graphics capability. I will appreciate any reader's suggestions in this regard. Are there any distinct advantages to the IPad when compared to the netbook? The costs look like almost double for the IPad.
thanks, SW Florida
