I imagine the only reason I will be using my laptop at all anymore will be to use PhotoShop, or if for some reason I need to Word Process at home and not at work.


can you edit Google docs with it? (I don't see why not, but you never know).

I haven't tried yet but I've done every other Google application that I use, so I imagine so.

Amazon would love to have lower prices on ebooks because that means more Kindle sales and more market share, but they can't because the publishers won't let them. Apple has also been implicated in the mess.

The one bad thing about the ipad is that I no longer love my iphone. I used to be crazy about it but no longer. The screen seems tiny now.

Definitely. I do like it for when I'm out which isn't that often because I'm not going to bring my iPad anywhere other than home and work. But, is it really worth the premium smartphone price for that once a week convenience? It's going to have to be for 2 years since I just upped my contract for the 4s a couple months ago. But, it seems like a waste of money now.

Was browsing the internet on it before, actually thinking just that. "Man this used to seem really big but now it seems tiny..."

Anybody gotten the keyboard for it? It'd be handy to hook up for when I'm, say, typing a long post here at the Cafe. Any other suggestions?? I really love this thing...

You definitely need to get the keyboard. Not sure if there is a mouse accessory as well, but that would pretty handy. With a keyboard, mouse, and the iPad as a viewing device you would have the ultimate in mobile computing. :-b

I guess I'm in the minority that the touch keyboard is enough. I can type just as fast with it. I guess the only difference is that you have to touch a button to get characters and that could be inconvenient for word processing, but it's not enough to buy a keyboard for me.

I had just heard of some small thing you can hook into it, but haven't really researched it. Do you use the split keyboard in the landscape view? I'm still trying to figure out what is most comfortable for typing anything substantial.
