Yeah, probably a loaded thread but 6 months ago my wife insisted on getting one. She's a heavy MS Office user on her MacBook and I basically told her the iPad doesn't do anything compared to her Mac and is severely limited especially in a work environment. So now it sits, unused except for the occasional game on a plane. Go back to January. I notice my work colleagues begin showing up for Staff meetings gleefully pecking away at new, shiny iPads. They say to me, "You need one of these things Krazy Bill!" I reply over the top of my MBP13, "Why? It doesn't do anything." Suffice it to say, by May... *all* 10 of these people had abandoned their iPads and were split between using various laptops and good old pencil/paper. I asked them "where their iPads were" and got a flurry of answers... none too specific. From a general business perspective, the iPad needs 3 things: 1.) a semi-real Keyboard 2.) MS-Office 3.) The muscle to handle #2. The keyboard is available and iPads are getting more powerful with each release. The problem I see is getting MS-Office for iOS. Honestly, with Microsoft about to release their very own tablet, it would be stupid for them to make one of their flagship products for the iPad. (And no. Numbers/Pages aren't the same as Word/Excel in a professional work environment. I didn't make that rule... it's just the way it is.) So... after the luster has worn off, anyone else relegate their iPads to the dust bin?
