...just serving as a data point for those of you deciding. I was excited to get this newfangled toy that is generating so much buzz. I'm a minimalist and the concept of having the internet and a large library of applications in my hands was enticing... What I found with the iPad 2 is a lack of comfort with the form factor, typing, and application quality. Having to hold the display and type on it at the same time makes most positions uncomfortable for use. It is a couch device. I use a 17" 2010 MBP and an iPhone 4, both of which have phenomenal display quality and I think I'll stick with this setup.
