I have gone through 4 to 5 laptops!! Lol!! They all have been pc. My major complaints on all of them were battery life. I hate the idea of having to plug them in everywhere I go. Plus, I had to re-install windows a few times on each onoe of them. When I heard the iPad has a 10 hour battery life, it made me excited! I have checked the apple.com site and noticed some of the mbp has at least 7 hours of battery life. Guess, battery and chips gotten better on energy consumption. I cannot afford to get a new laptop, but the current is fine (except for battery life). I am planning on getting the iPad. I will use my pc for basically just for updating my iphone and Ipad. I don't think I will need a laptop, but may get mbp in a few years. For now, iPad will keep me busy. I don't do heavy computing. I like to play games, browse net, maybe read a book, listen music and watch movies. I will use app for this and that. I may use the iwork.
