Get the ipad, does it All ;-)
The only things missing on iPad are Flash player and a USB port other than that there pretty similar, iPads are thinner then most laptops makes it easier for travel. There are also cheaper than most laptops. Most other things that you can do on a laptop that you can't do on an iPad are easy to get round as there are hundreds of apps that will sort this problem out (Pages and Numbers instead of Word or Xcel.)
Well... I type slower on an iPad than I do on a laptop, so for me, I wouldn't say that the iPad can completely replace the laptop. Plus, all my favorite MMORPGs can only be played on my laptop.
iPad is never suppose to take the place of a laptop, IMHO it's not the purpose. It's just another tool we can use for business or as in my case, pleasure.
I will say this though if you purchase a bluetooth wireless keyboard and pair it with your iPad it does make that typing much easier. But that's another way it's good because there are times when you don't want to use the wireless keyboard and prefer using the keyboard that comes with the iPad.
I've had my iPad for 5 months now and I absolutely love it. Good updates, great for listening to music. Heck since mine is wifi only I don't even load music into it I just use an app that plays my files straight from my itunes.
I suppose some people can find them business friendly but they are definitely not replacements for laptops.
Biggest advantage about using my iPad vs. MacBook Pro is battery life.
True portability wins.
My laptop is sitting dusty in the corner since I got my iPad.
i carry my ipad outside more than my laptop..so it helps me a lot if i need to edit and send reports..but i wish there would be a better apps to edit excel..
I have to have both since I don't want a desktop at home and have to travel for work fairly often. I need a laptop to do real work (writing, data analysis etc).
But I hate a laptop for web surfing on the couch, reading PDFs etc. which is where a tablet comes in.
iPad is not a Laptop replacement. The Laptop/PC will still be required for most of your serious computing. I use my PC/Laptop for managing all of my media, storing important files, pictures, video/picture editing, etc.
However, if all you use a computer for is emails, browsing, watch media.... then an iPad can certainly take the place of a Laptop.
The iPad is the computer equivalent of the Smart Fortwo - it's detractors will quickly give you a laundry list of its shortcomings, but when you dig deeper you discover that 95% of the time it does everything they need.
