    ok here is a simple question for those who travel alot

    1-take the ipad and leave the laptop or desktop behind for your basic everyday computer fuctions when traveling

    2-take the laptop and leave the ipad behind for your basic eveyday computer fuctions when traveling

    so do you take ipad or the laptop as your primary electronic device when you travel

    i have a gentlemen wage with a friend when we where talking about the future of tablets for personal use .i belive lightwieght ipad style tablets are the next step of personal computing ..he seams to think that laptops are allways going to be around ..

    Take the iPad

    All I want is the ability to (1) read/send email (2) Stay updated with news which can be handled by web or apps (3) watch a previously downloaded movie while on a flight and, if a pleasure trip, (4) review daily vacation photos. iPad perfect for all 4

    I also take the iPad, leave the laptop at home on the network. I use iTeleport to log in and send myself stuff if I've forgotten anything.

    For a simple pleasure trip where I wont be expected to do any work, the iPad all the way. If I have to do work, then I need my laptop, however the iPad goes with as well.
