    Ever since I got my iPad I use my lap top less and less every day. The only thing I do on my laptop that I don't do on my iPad is web design. What about you?

    I've pretty much abandoned my notebook as well. I use a desktop at work or at home for heavy lifting tasks. I've actually taken only my iPad on a few business trips and it has worked great. Like I've said before, the iPad won't replace a laptop completely (I still use a desktop for document creation, editing, and other tasks), but it will do 75% of the most common things that you do that aren't specialized (like coding or multi-media editing)very well.

    If you are a real coder, look into FTP On The Go Pro. you can edit files via FTP sites. Now, if you are a flash web designer - start learning HTML5.

    I won't abandon mine when I get my iPad 2 as my work laptop is my only home computer now and I do a lot of work at home on nights and weekends (writing, data analysis etc.) that I need a full PC for.

    I'll do most of my websurfing on the couch etc. on it when I get it though!

    I still use my MacBook Pro quite a bit but use my iPad almost exclusively for surfing, research, etc - just about anything web related.

    My old Win 7 laptops were just gathering dust though so I turned 'em into my iTunes servers for home sharing!

    I still use my desktop for major gaming. But my I pad has replaced my laptop.
