I was using my MBA for some casual web browsing and started thinking how odd it seemed and how clumsy it was to use. *Now don't get me wrong, I Iove the MBA and I use it at work but, at home, I do nearly everything with my iPad. It's an iPad 1, purchased on launch day in 2010. I also have an i5 quad core iMac which I use almost exclusively for home recording with Logic. I actually feel that, if I didn't do the home recording bit, I could live quite easily with only the iPad. *I prefer it in every way. I will hopefully retire in 2 to 3 years (assuming the GOP doesn't totally screw me on healthcare issues). *I could very well be PC/Mac free. I am comfortable with the cloud for data storage. No doubt, the iPad functionality will expand via native and 3rd party apps. The iPad is revolutionary, regardless of folks who mock it or simply don't get it.
