I received my iPad via ups on Wednesday, and as the days go on I become more impressed with this thing. I've only used my laptop twice since then! To be honest I'll probably only use my laptop when working on papers and using excel. I've tried excel on the iPad, but I still prefer using a trackpad. Reading is such a better experience on this as well. I didn't like reading articles on my laptop, but it's no problem at all on the iPad. This is definitely my new go to device!
