I think the iPad is perfect for me and last week really underscores it, I went to Florida on vacation. I brought 4 books to read, my laptop to check e-mail and such and of course my iPhone. Well I did get to read my four books, but I never took my laptop out of the bag and checked my e-mail and surfed the web on the iPhone. The iPad could have taken the place of everything and I wouldn't needed to lug my Macbook Pro with me on vacation.
So I'm really looking forward to getting mine.
