So I owned an iPad 2, but ended up selling it for 2 reasons: 1.) It felt really weird to be using an iPad on my couch with my iPhone sitting on the arm rest. I saw it as Apple overkill. They are the same devices with 2 different screen sizes. 2.) While the iPad has gained things like iMovie and iPhoto, it can't replace the flexibility of a Mac without a file system and ability to download whatever you want off the web and manipulate it as you see fit. I went back to a notebook, purchasing the 13" rMBP for portability in October and really like it, but with the Mac only representing 10% of Apple's revenue, will it slowly fade away in favor of the iPad? I can't help but feel like the traditional laptop is teetering on the edge of obsolescence. When the iPad allows me to downlaod a Flash video from the web, convert it to mp4 and edit it in iMovie, I may be on board. Until then, the Mac is what I want to use.
