Well here's the story. I got an Ipad 1 for Christmas and took it back because I didn't feel the need for it since I have a 13" MBP and an Iphone 4. However, after playing around with the new iPad it does have a few things that the old one didn't especially the camera (Skype). Right now, the college I go to some of the professors won't allow laptops...weird... so I have to handwrite everything. If I get an Ipad it would be much easier to take notes without being noticed and do other things. I don't really do anything special with my MBP now except surf, email, facebook, stuff like that. No major editing or photoshop. I am going into architecture in the fall and think an Ipad could help because of the digital books, and the smaller profile than my MBP. I think I could get by with a iMac and iPad. Here I guess is my question. I just got a iMac so should I sell the MBP and get an iPad since all the word processing could be done on the iMac. Pros of iPad smaller does most everything I do on my MBP possibly make the backpack lighter(less physical books) Cons?
