    Eh depends where I'm going or doing. If going out to dinner with friends then yes. The bar in the restaurant to hang with the guys, no. Work..sometimes. At home, lays on couch or table.

    I'm afraid of someone trying to steal it. A guy at the mall down the street had his finger ripped off. In a neighborhood from 500k-1m dollar homes with a bently or two driving around shows crime can happen anywhere. I used to leave my vehicles unlocked until that news post.

    I would carry it everywhere if I had the proper protection for it. Right now I only have a pricey ($30) padded bag with handles. I just need to get the funds for a hardcore case.

    I paid a ton for it, it will be with me where ever I am, within reason, of course.

    I usually leave it at home, unless I go to the library. Sometimes I take it to work, but not very often.

    I'm usually leaving it at home.I don't have the permission to bring it with me at school, and it would be not the best ideea anyway.

    I would like to carry it with me everywhere, but I can't!:(

    Bought a Vera bag that it just fits iPad. Don't leave home without it. It's my new best friend.

    Ok. Here's an old person view. I have an iPhone that goes everywhere. My iPad is too heavy and bulky for out and about, and as a retired persin no longer go to work...yay! but the size and screen and typing surface is wonderful at home. Am doing Xmas shopping, email, banking, photo stuff, and news daily ( too many times daily). I think it is wonderful.

    Mine is with me a fair amount of time at home and if I am traveling. It is completely useless as a tool to use at work (for me), so it never finds a place on my desk. That's OK though, I didn't think I would ever have a use for it at work!

    It's with me in bed - love my iBooks. Thank gawd this won over the Kindle. There's so many more things I can do with an iPad than a Kindle. Been using it primarily as a reading device, and kid entertainment system - it's the only way to have a decent sit down meal with wifey when sonny is with us.

    It's with me in the train. Though it's only a 30 min ride, I get some reading in. I'm not a big fan of plugging into music on the move - I like the symphony of life so I keep my ears free. I love my music on a great sound system at home - nothing beats that!

    I bring it to work with me every day, our work computers have a lot of websites blocked so it's nice to pull out my ipad and surf freely.

    How often...

    I have mine with me almost all the time. I use it at work, where it has replaced a corporate laptop. I use it at home, where it has, more or less, rendered redundant my Dell laptop. Finally I use it on the move where it has rendered redundant every function (except basic telephone) of my Windows Mobile based telephone (htc).

    The other things it has rendered redundant: Carrying a paper notebook into meetings. Carrying a bundle of papers for the same meetings. Buying newspapers. Buying books (probably, but still testing that one out). Being held in one place by the need to compute (battery life means I can more or less sit anywhere in the University and still do all my work).

    Things I have kept: The Dell (just in case there I find something I can't do on the iPad and the occasional iTunes thing (like upgrading to OS 4.2). My iPod Classic (because it is attached, through a logic3 remote controlled docking station to my hifi (iPad won't fit the docking station) and because I have interfaces for it in the cars and my other homes).

    same here, I take it with me to work and at lunch time I use it instead of the computers in our break room. plus the computers are often times full of viruses and won't work.

    It goes EVERYWHERE with me... I would feel nekkid without it!!!
    I have an iPhone4 and it is amazing how crazy I was about it - until I got the iPad, now the iPhone is mostly used for texting and a phone and the computer at home - well, it is RARELY used or even turned on any more.

    24/7!

    Actually, sometimes my wife has it for a while, but she has to nearly pry it out of my hands first! :p

    Other than that, it's like American Express. I don't leave home without it!
