    I'd dare to guess that most people who say you can't use an iPad as your sole computer have never tried it.

    I went all iPad about 4 months ago and it's been great. One thing I do ALOT is writing and with my bluetooth keyboard and dropbox, I'm set.

    I don't do much else but surf the web, watch video's, and e-mail. In fact, for my purposes, an iPad is much superior to a laptop. I love being able to read books and watch video's on my Ipad as opposed to a laptop. To show you how much of a non-issue processing power is I'm even using the ORIGINAL iPad.

    Computer replacement for me as well.

    More accurately, notebook replacement, physical textbook replacement, and bookshelf replacement...in addition to desktop replacement.

    I have about six 2,000+ page textbook pdfs open in iannotate, they flow smoothly, allow for notes, bookmarks, etc and tabbed switching between any of them.

    I take notes with a stylus in class and got rid of my notebook last semester (goodnotes, notability ). I have all the slides downloaded directly on it, and take notes on the slides as if I printed them.

    I use pages and the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard case for typing papers, emailing them to the professor, and printing them.

    The nice part is all I take to class is my iPad and stylus. Not lugging around a backpack is very, very nice...and I still have all the textbooks, handouts (I take pics of them, and can fill them out with stylus as needed) with me. I even have flashcards for studying readily and instantly available...

    One of the best purchases I've made. And I admit at first I considered it a "toy" as well, until I experimented and learned how to use it.

    Also I'm coming from android tablets..

    Thank you for your input milkmilklemonade. As a part time student, I too am bringing just my iPad to class and it is more than enough.

    i have a macbook pro and an ipad2 and although i love my iPad it could never be my sole computer,i love my pro when i want to do lots of typing and doing this involves a lot of that i wouldn't be without it,also things like copy and paste are much easier on a computer(for me anyway)....

    The topic of this thread is likely one of the reasons Microsoft reportedly will unveil its own tablet computer today.

    I agree they're different. The debate is over how much computing power mere mortals need. And, can it be crammed into a tablet.
