This is a duplicate post of what you asked in the iPad forum...see the answer over there.

Since I don't frequent the iPad forum I'll answer here. I'm typing this answer on my first generation iPad. I absolutely love my iPad for web surfing and checking email while I sit in my comfy recliner in my family room, there's nothing better for those activities. I also use it to watch TV while I work out or sit in the hot tub! That said iPads are not replacements for full fledged laptops. Typing is unnatural and you wouldn't want to do it for long....this answer is about my limit! Creating and managing files is somewhat limited also although that gets better as more and more computer style apps come out. My MacBook recently died due to a failed logic board and I didn't think I'd miss it but I do and have purchased a used one to replace it, can't wait for it to arrive. I wouldn't want to do anything but surf, email and watch tv on my iPad.

Thanks Mike and Dalstott for your insight. Your reply helped me overcome the urge to switch over from my Macbook to iPad.
