    Is it still worth buying an Apple laptop if you have an ipad2? I am thinking about this but do not want to waste my hard earned money if I do not have to!

    My wife has both. But uses them for different reasons. She is a teacher and uses the iPad at school because it is easier to lug around than her MacBook Pro. There is utility to having both but it depends on your needs.

    The iPad isn't a laptop replacement. Think of it as a big iPod. The apps are limited. (You can't run Apple programs like Photoshop or Word).. There is no mouse.. There is no support for Flash.. It has limited connectivity. You need an adapter to connect a USB plug and many USB devices simply won't work when connected to an iPod. There is no printer port.. Laptop internal storage is typically greater than 128 Gigs.. (Around 500 Gig on the middle Macbook Pro).. Etc. etc..

    But despite all that.. It is a GREAT device :)

    And I voted for both, hard not to as I bought my MBA after I bought my iPad. I really wouldn't want to be without either as they both have their individual uses.

    I'm not going to buy another laptop after this one dies because I want more internal storage, but I am getting an iMac, so I voted iPad + Mac.
