I am a professional artist & college adjunct teaching an occasional art class. I pre-ordered my ipad (32GB wifi + GB) I do not have a laptop, an ipod, or a smart phone... I have a simple pay-as-u-go cell phone.** I considered buying an ipad touch last year, but the screen is too small for my eyesight. I did not want to lug a laptop around... & though those little netbooks do look very nice, I think this ipad will be a better fit for me at home, on the bus, at college & traveling. **I do however have a wonderful Mac Pro w/ 30â€ screen on a movable arm, outfitted with digital tablets & pens, on a desk with a built-in light table, surrounded by art books & supplies, all centered in my otherwise tacky but very comfortable art studio.
