WHat you think?
Sent from my sexy black iPad 2 using iPF
One or two nights on the road...iPad.
More than two nights on the road....laptop (& iPad).
Totally depends what your needs are.
It is for me.
I take my keyboard so I have a better ability to answer long emails or write while I'm on the road, but I stopped carrying my laptop more than 6 trips ago and I never looked back.
Evaluate your needs while on the road and make the decision based on when you would use one over the other.
In my case the two things I needed to do on my laptop I now do using TeamViewer and I'm all set for the rest.
For me it is..I don't have all the extra accessories like the keyboard, but I do use it to respond to emails. Unless I'm doing somewhere very specific, more than likely, my laptop is at home,being my desktop.
For me it is. I don't go anywhere without it. Well, i don't take it to dinner.... anymore.... LOL
Long trips I take both. Short trips just the Ipad.
On holiday, then it's just the iPad. Business trips I take both.
Ipad2 has virtually made my laptop redundant, it ran for over 9 hours on a full charge during flight go Mexico, watching films abd playing music.

Can't get along without my 15" laptop when I travel on business for a number of reasons. The kind of work I do demands a Windows system. Some of the software I run requires IE or Firefox. The single window limit of the iPad is far too restrictive; I need multiple resizable windows for serious work. And even if none of those factors rule out depending exclusively on the iPad, the cpu processing power of the iPad comes nowhere close to what I need.
But having said all that, I've stopped carrying an 11" notebook that I've used for a couple of years when crammed into a middle seat in coach on a cross country flight. The iPad, even with the Origami Workstation stand and the Apple Wireless Keyboard fits on the tiny tray table more easily than the notebook (and leaves room for a scotch.) All the same limitations of the iPad apply but multiple windows on an 11" screen is not much of an advantage, anyway. I hate touchpads so the touch screen interface of the iPad actually saves space compared to the connecting a travel mouse on the notebook. I don't have to run application software when I'm flying and the convenience and gorgeous screen on the iPad combined with the ability to toss leave the keyboard in my bag if I don't have to work on a flight makes the iPad an ideal traveling companion.
