Once the ipad was released I was not impressed with it. I thought it was just a big ipod. Then I decided to get a smart phone (android eris) with no contract just incase verizon picks up the iphone in the near future, but it turns out i love the android phone but i wish it had a bigger screen.... well all the sudden the ipad becomes very appealing to me even though i am going to probably buy 13 mbp as i will need something portable to run windows and will need it for flash. I am planning on using the 13 mbp as main computer with external display. Also planning a trip cross country so I assume a 3G would be best for a travel guide. what are your thoughts, is the Ipad for me.
