    Everyone is different. I would suggest that you consider a MacBook. You can get a refurbished unit for prices starting at $850. It will be a good substitute for a desktop and you can add components as you need to. A MacBook should give you at least five years of service.

    There is a rumor out there that Microsoft is coming out with a iPad compatible version of word. Hope is that it is within the next quarter.

    No, it is definitely not a replacement for a laptop.
    it's great for multimedia, games, and surfing the net.
    but it's not so convenient as far as downloading stuff and sending or receiving media via email, etc...

    If you see the keynote during the introduction of the iPad, he introduced the iPad to work between a smart phone and a desktop. Which in a lot of ways, is very true. My iPad is perfect between my iPhone and a Macbook Pro.

    On a related subject, you will be wanting Desktop ToGo for editing Office docs on the iPad (when it ships).

    What can't you download from iTunes? I could download music from iTunes on my 1st gen iPod Touch.
