Bye Bye laptop! Jailbroken iPad here I come!

The iPad has a lot of benefits over a laptop:

- Retina display
- 10 hour battery life
- Very light and thin
- No viruses to worry about
- Voice dictation
- Can watch videos on the treadmill at the gym
- Apple store customer service
- Low price compared to ultrabooks
- Thousands of apps

Common complaints which can be fixed:

1. How do I get music/videos on my iPad without a computer?

2. What is the best bluetooth keyboard with a built in iPad stand?
Logitech ultrathin keyboard

3. How do I use a bluetooth mouse?
BTC Mouse**

4. How do I manage my files?

5. How do I play real games on an emulator with a physical controller?
Snes9x EX**

6. How do I watch flash videos?
iSwifter browser

7. How do I download files?
Atomic web browser

8. How do I download youtube videos for offline viewing?

9. How do I create/edit Office documents?

10. How do I upload documents to websites?

In the past even one of these problems might have made me hesitant to go 100% pc-free but no longer. I can't think of a single reason though why I would use a laptop over an iPad anymore.

** requires jailbreak
