    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!

    Cherry Creek is a great neighborhood. Target-rich environment for criminals.

    I take my iPad if I think I'll have chance or need to use it. Otherwise, I just take my iPhone and iPod touch. Their screens are too small for convenient Web navigation, though. I'm looking forward to getting a Samsung Note, when they start selling, because a 5-inch phone/tablet would seem to fit many of my daily needs on the go.

    I agree! I bring my iPad everywhere with me. When I go to school, I feel so bad leaving it behind, and when I get home (after finishing homework OF COURSE ;)) it's the first thing I turn on. When I go out someplace, and take my iPad out of my purse people just think I'm trying to show off, but the truth is, is that I'm just missing it and HAVE to play on it. (Well I did spend my own money on it so I'm going to get my money's worth.) It's really made my life more productive as a student, and in general, and honestly now I can't imagine life without it. Call me obsessed or a "fanboy", but I love my iPad to pieces! :)

    I'm within arms reach 20-24 hours a day ever since April 2010. It's my radio in my car and what I use when I go to bed. Love it

    I only have a WiFi one, so it comes with me to my parents' house and to school, otherwise it stays at home.
