Actually I'm as much of a PC as anyone else. I think the Netbooks are terribly underpowered, as is any Windows based machine with minimal memory and a poor CPU. I do not and have never owned an Apple branded computer. I think the iPad is great for certain functions - web browsing (although I do not like Safari), viewing media, eBook reading and mail. The calendar and address book are great. But it is not useful to me as a business tool as it doesn't support Java. The lack of Flash is overblown, I can live without it. When I travel I take a small, fully functional laptop and the iPad... The iPad is great for entertainment.
And, of course, my 9700 is never far away.
