    Pages and Apple bluetooth keyboard work fine

    BUT now you have something as large as a netbook. Why not get a netbook to begin with?

    If you want to produce simple documents, letters, even brochures, fine. Pages is pretty, if a bit unintuitive. Documents to go, Quickoffice and Office2 HD are all ok for opening and editing relatively simple documents. As a business tool where, inevitably you will be trying to work with Microsoft documents forget it. And for anything longer than this post a keyboard is a must. The apple Bluetooth keyboard is superb. No until google docs or Microsoft docs work on it this is not a great business tool.

    I use my iPad2 for lots of things but not

    word processing. That's what computers are made for with their full sized keyboards.
