    I have a number of computer and the iPad is a toy. I cannot go to Dave Ramsey Show on the iPad. I cannot go to Yoville on the iPad. I cannot use Microsoft Money on the iPad. And those are the three things that I use the most.

    The Safari web browser purely sucks as opposed to a real web browser.

    The iPad is a classy toy but nobody should call it a computer. It is not a computer and it is not even close to being a computer. It is miles and miles away from being a computer. It is a computer accessory at best.

    If apple would open it up it is more capable than some net books. But for now, you are right. If you need power, you need a computer.

    I use my laptop every day, because still a lot I cant do on ipad, but I will always have both, I need my laptop, it is just easier sometimes to use ipad for the simple things because it is so small and much lighter.

    I still use my laptop pretty often...

    For putting music into iTunes, so I can transfer music to my iPod

    Uploading photos

    Flash sites

    And for times when i do not feel like using a touch screen device

    And for many other reasons that I can't think of right now on the top of my head

    Still use both my desktop (Mac mini) and iPad about the same. Use the desktop to sync daily. I do a lot of quick e-mails in the morning before work, check the weather on one of the widgets on the desktop. iPad has a totally different use for me. At night when I am chilling in bed reading, want to look up something quickly, things like that, it can't be beat. But I need my desktop for the software updates and like it for the app updates-I sometimes do them through Wifi alone, but I prefer to do them via sync. Since I also have an iPhone, I am used to this.

    I have found a way to interface a real computer with the iPad2. I use the real computer to get to YouTube and the pop music videos. Then I use RealPlayer to download the videos. Then I rename them with the artist name first and the song name second and I convert them to the iPod format. Finally I synch them to the iPad2. Works like a charm.

    For serious stuff that matters I use a real computer exclusively.

    Work. At the end of the work day the computer is turned off and it's not turned on again until I'm ready to login again the next work day.
