Long story short: I'm one of those people who wait for first gen adopters to figure the problem out, and hope Apple fixed it by the time they roll out the second generation. I've been waiting, and it's almost over. I currently have Macbook Pro 13" 2009 and iPod Touch 4g. I would say Macbook Pro is very useful in terms of typing, movie editing, and all those good stuff, but it is just heavy and too bulky to carry around. Plus, since I don't have a desktop, so I use this as a desktop. iPod Touch is just too small to take any notes on. Sure, I love to listen to music and watch movies on the go, but it's just not ideal for school work. Now that the iPad 2 is out and I'm almost certain that I'll be getting it, I have few questions for 1st gen owners and other people on the forum. 1. How long will the iPad last if it's paired up with a bluetooth keyboard? Since I'll be typing a lot, I would like to see how long I can last with full charge. 2. For iPad 1 users, do you use your iPad more than your laptop or desktop? 3. Is the iPad 1 easy to carry around? I mean, I never had any tablets before, so I don't know if it's convenient or not.
