i go to college and have a lot of roommates. i was thinking how great this would be to connect to a tv and watch movies or plug into a stereo during parties. but i get worried about my laptop being in the living room and doing these things in case someone knocks it over or spills something on it. at first the ipad seem to be better suited for these roles but it's also smaller and harder to notice and lighter and easier to knock around. not to mention its a giant screen.
