Especially since I got my new MacBook Pro 15, the iPad has become the bedside companion, not getting the airplay it once was. I guess I've got NewToy-itis with the new MBP. And, for short airplane trips, the iPad will still be my go-to. But, when it comes time to lay down in bed and read a book or do some surfing and emailing, the iPad just can't be beat. Except when I fall asleep using it and it smacks me in the face!
