Hello everyone, I am graduating with Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and my family got Ipad3 as surprise present! I was very happy but not sure what to do with it. I already have MBP (early 2011) and awesome desktop (Windows I built).

I was wondering where Ipad is usually used? Also what are some great App to get? I was thinking of Dropbox and Netflix. Also saw Air Display which I thought it was cool to use for MBP as well. Finally, I know there are some app for remote connection to MBP. What are your opinions on which app to use??

Thank you guys in advance!

I usually think of and heard other iPad users using an iPad when:

- relaxing on the couch
- as a passenger in a car, bus, airplane, or in a airport terminal
- in bed
- on the toilet

Basically you use it in places where carrying or "whipping-out" a laptop computer is a hassle. Im sure you'll find numerous ways to "fit" an iPad into your life!:)

The hard part is done (getting one);)...now it's time to have fun!:)

Here's what I use mine for:

*Replying to emails by voice. I love this feature.
*Reading books and magazines.
*Watching podcasts, movies, TV shows
*Playing games
*Enjoying photography (mine and other people's)
*FaceTime conferencing with friends around the world
*Editing photos (more and more these days)
*Taking courses with iTunes U
*Large maps for travel
*Assisting in my stargazing
*Online shopping, travel booking and of course general web surfing

That covers most of the major activities I do with it.
