    Do you like flash?

    Code:
    Yes                                             No
     l                                              l
     V                                              V
    Get a netbook or notebook.                  get an ipad.

    You have to weigh out what your needs are and what you want your machine to do for you, ether just for surfing the interwebs or movies or gaming.

    It really is all in what you really want and need.

    I personally have no need for an iPad but I also do a lot of gaming so I bought a Qosmio 18.4 inch big'en.

    I wasn't looking for just browsing and easy travel options, I wanted to be able to buy some slave kids to carry around my lappy and charger pack for me whilst Raiding in WoW or getting my headshots in CoDMW2 :D

    I guess the iPad's a go-go.

    Laptop is a Personal Computer, it can do everything that a computer can do.

    The iPad in comparison is a toy.

    What's the primary device? If it's a laptop why need another? So I say iPad. If it's not a laptop or whatever then definitely don't get the iPad.

    If you hesitate you should opt for the laptop. It's more universal than an ipad, which is a great device but with a far more limited usage.

    How important is size to you?

    That's a 15" screen on the laptop, which is also more bulky. Granted, you have a full keyboard and some other things, inherent in a laptop, that the iPad doesn't. If portability and size is more important, go for the iPad.

    Make a list of the top three things you'll be doing with it, and then pick. A lot of typing, get the laptop. The keyboard on the iPad isn't bad, really, but for a lot of typing the keys are really better.
