Right now, I have a desktop PC and an iPhone. I'm saving up for an iPad. I'm going to be doing some international travelling/working next year, so I obviously can't be taking my uber Windows gaming machine with me. In fact, I accept that I may have to put all PC gaming on hold while I do my travelling. Given that I'll be purchasing an iPad by the time I begin my journey in June 2012, do you think I'll be fine without a computer at all? 1. Does your iPad meet all of your e-mail/surfing/blogging/watching/listening/streaming/downloading needs? 2. Does it work well with Google Docs (documents/spreadsheets)? 3. Can you type long e-mails/blog posts with the on screen keyboard without becoming frustrated? I know there are keyboards and cases with keyboards attached, but I want to make this thing as lightweight and portable as possible. The main thing I'm concerned about is having no way to troubleshoot problems if my iPad fails in some way. For example, I won't have a PC or Mac available to restore it. Also, I won't be able to update iOS without a computer, right? Not to mention the lack of backups... Anyone else have an iPad but no other computer?
