My iPad2 is 1 year and 1 week old. I have been very very happy with it. I get a lot of use of out it. I got the 3g version btw, and am very glad I did. In its 1st month I used CoPilot to help me drive from NY to SanF in 7 days. GPS + 3g was a great combination. The fact that I was able to fly from London with a iPad from the UK and be up on 3g 1 day later was fantastic. It is too big for my pocket - shame - so when I am due for an upgrade in July I will after 4 years stick two fingers up to Andriod and ditch my 4 year old G1 in favour of a 4S. If the iPad could fit in my pocket I would not bother. The only disappointment for me is that after buying numbers and pages and iMove I woke up to the fact that the iPad is a content delivery device not a content production device - i.e. it is not a "computer". I know eventually I am going to have to face up to this fact and get a laptop. I don't want to turn this into a technical spec debate - I am more interested in what people have chosen, and why, between a MBP and a MBA to complement their iPads. BTW one other piece of context - any laptop I get will never replace my desktop PCs and iMac - their presence is a constant, they will always do the heavy lifting.
