I am so sorry for asking a question that has probably been beaten to death, but I keep getting iPad 1 -> iPad 2 upgrade comparisons when I try to search why I would want one. I think my question may be quite general, but really I am wondering how the iPad 2 has potential to make my life better/easier and why. I'll give some specific questions though to make it easier to answer. 1) What kinds of specific things do you do on your iPad that are very convenient specifically because they are done on an iPad? (Productivity) 2) What kinds of apps do you use on a daily basis? (looking for ideas) 3) Is it really only for consumption? or can you actually be productive with a keyboard for things such as note-taking or research? 4) Since 2010, I have slowly been converting to Apple (2010 MBP 13', iPhone 4, 2011 MBP 15')... will I be able to fit this device for daily usage? (MBP 15' is my desktop replacement / iPhone 4 is always with me / MBP 13' is my take to classes and library computer) 5) I really want to start getting into digital reading, but I am so concerned about eye strain and fatigue. I will obviously read on low brightness, but does anyone know much about this? 6) Any buyer's remorse/regret stories and/or turn arounds? Thanks! EDIT: Should probably mention this stuff: I am a neuroscience college undergraduate that is planning for medical school. I love watching movies (netflix), I enjoy my music, I want to be as productive and efficient in other aspects of life by using the iPad, and I guess besides my personal hobbies I am just open to many other things.
