For note taking the iPad has a bunch of nice apps. It is one of the main reasons I got one. Taking notes on a laptop is OK if you have a place to type. Most of my notes are done at customers while talking face to face. Typing on a laptop becomes impersonal. I wanted a more natural note taking device.

For Calendar and Email the iPad is a good choice - especially if you don't need all the fancy features (also depends on what kind of groupware you are connecting to)

Downside is as mentioned above - not a full fledged laptop, that being said I find myself reaching for the iPad more than the laptop in day to day situations. Easy to use, most websites come through well (flash of course is the exception, but if you are burning for flash you could always try cloud browse in a pinch)
