On a long flight I'll watch a few movies on mine but in general, I'd much rather just wait until I get home and watch things on my big screen TV. I'm still using the original iPad though, so maybe the retina display makes a big difference for videos. I do love my iPad and when I'm on the couch I almost always prefer it over my laptop for surfing the web, checking emails, etc. But I can't really understand why so many people think it's just as good as a big screen when it comes to watching videos. Can someone enlighten me?
