I love my iPad2 and my mini. My husband and I share these. As much as I love them I realize I'm not using them to their full potential and will likely be asking many questions here. We're semi-migrating from a MS environment to Apple. I don't think we'll ever be able to completely leave MS. My old laptop was just retired from use. In the meantime, I'm using my iPad with an Apple Keyboard at my desk. It works well for most things. I still haven't worked out what needs to be MS/apple yet. It saves me rushing out and buying a new laptop immediately. My next phone, when my present plan expires, will likely be an iPhone. Right now I have an HTC. As is most likely obvious from my name, I'm in Canada.
