One use I can think of - each year on the couple of nice sunny days which constitute a UK Summer, I think of sitting out in the garden with a computer.

The iMac or Win7 boxes are obviously not going out there, so I could use the laptop (Win7 not Mac) or maybe a netbook. The problem with those is the laptop needs a power lead if I try to use it for any length of time, which I don't want to drag across wet grass, and the netbook is just too small and limited.

The iPad sounds perfect - carry it out with me, use it for hours without needing the power lead and if it rains, carry it back inside.

Ideal.



A second use - I tend to spend quite a lot of time reading in the small room which doesn't have any power sockets, if you get my meaning. Books are fine there, but the laptop is too heavy and needs a power supply. Again, the iPad should be perfect for that.
