I'm well aware that there are probably a ton of threads asking the same question, but I want to ensure that in my particular situation, I will be making the right decision. I'm graduating high school in less than a month. I just received a 17" i5 MBP this weekend from my aunt for graduation. I'm going to Penn State next year, which has plenty of wifi capabilities ( I would be buying the wifi, not the 3g model). I'm in need of a new ipod (my 32g Ipod Video is ancient and the headphone jack only works on one side, and my 8g Touch simply is not enough storage). Since I need a new Ipod, I am torn between the 32g Ipod touch OR just keeping the two ipods I have and getting an Ipad. 500 dollars is a bit of a stretch but if I was already going to spend 300 on the touch, I figure the 200 won't kill me. I also have an Amazon Kindle already, but I was looking at the Ipad's reading template and I really like it. My only worry is portability, if its tough to carry around, but I figure for the most part I'll be traveling with a backpack, and it might be nice to not have to lug the 17" everywhere if I can use the Ipad instead. So I guess my main question, with everything being taken into account, do you think it would be worth it in my situation to get the Ipad? Would I be able to use it in place of my laptop in a lot of cases?
