    Have an iMac which i use for app development, iTunes maintenance, and managing my Aperture library. iPad used for everything else. iPad doesn't routinely leave home, though i do take it on holidays with me.

    Seems to work very well as a combination.

    1. Constantly.
    2. MacBook White, which I use for CD or DVD ripping, heavy multitasking, flash websites if I must, Skyping with video; iPad for most everyday tasks like web, email, weather, train times, FB and Twitter,etc.
    3. Couch, bed, bog, bath (carefully), train, and occasionally out and about. Invaluable on trips.

    Apple branded case for me. I'll put it in the incase sleeve for my 13" mbp for extra protection if I need it.

    1. thoughout waking hours

    2. nope. Macbook Air, MacBook, 12 and 15" G4 Powerbooks

    3. All around the house: sprawled on the couch with a cup of tea or coffee nearby. In the kitchen. Standing by the back door waiting for the UPS guy to show up. On the porch. In the yard under a tree. Once in awhile, in bed, although usually I'm ten seconds from unconscious when I kill the lights on the first floor and head upstairs. At other people's houses when they ask to see it and I remember to take it along.

    I have a Belkin case, the Grip Vue one. Works for me. I don't have to worry if I set it down for a minute on a damp countertop, for instance.

    I have both a 3G iPad and 2010 MBP.
    I use iPad everywhere I go, including bed & bathroom.
    I use the MBP primarily for iOS development and some design work.
    I have the Apple iPad case, and love it, but I've noticed the color seems to be fading a lot. It's now almost gray.

    2. Yes. I dont take my laptop to University any more, as it is a tad heavy, and I was only ever using it to check websites as I dont like typing up notes anyway.

    3. In bed, at Uni, on the toilet :p

    2. Yes, but my MBP has turned more into a desktop computer as I no longer have the need to tote it around. My next computer will likely be a Mac Mini or iMac
    3. Work, home, in bed, in the car for streaming music (iPad has unlimited data while iPhone doesn't). I usually carry the iPad with me wherever I go.
