My Macbook Pro is the 2011 model with the Thunderbolt port and the Facetime camera. My iPhone 4 is the black 16 gb model on Verizon. I'm so indecisive! All answers are greatly appreciated.

Well now that all depends on what your needs and expectations are. The iPad is more portable than the MacBook, less portable than the iPhone. It has the advantage of a bigger display than the iPhone, disadvantage of being more limited in usability than the MacBook.

I was just planning to use it as a "just for fun" device. No business intended.
My MacBook is usually just for the usual highschool work and some web browsing. My iPhone is usually just used as an iPod and for texting/calling.

If you want it and you have the money, why not? You'll find a use for it!

I've also got a MBP and an iPhone 4... and a Dell laptop for work. I don't see any need for an iPad in my life... everyones circumstances are different so I think only you can decide if you require one or not.

I too have been trying to think of what I can use an iPad for.

Unfortunately, nothing springs to mind - so the money remains in the wallet.

I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 4. My company provided me with an iPad 2 and I found that I didn't really use it all that much. My main issue with it was that it was really just a big-screened iPhone minus the ubiquitous connectivity (I didn't want to pay for the 3G when I was already paying for data on my iPhone). About the only the only function I found I was lacking elsewhere was the ability to read some of my iPad enhanced magazine subscriptions, but I don't mind being limited to the print versions of those. YMMV, of course, but I just figured I'd share my experience.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
