Wow I just got home and the iPad worked out so well!! I didn't touch my 17" mbp at all today. On top of that I dled an app called mocha vnc where I can see and control my mbp from anywhere to run and use vmware fusion and firefox to work on flash based homework! Also I've been on campus since 9am and it's 6pm right now and my battery life is still at 45%! I watched youtube videos all day basically along with surfing the web, check email. I had no issues with the wifi (had a full wifi bar) the whole time. This is an amazing product!! On top of everything, 3 people are now buying one just because they played with my iPad as well as showing them my apps such as air video and mocha vnc! One thing to note is that girls LOVE the iPad, always comes over to check it out with the phrase, "ohhh is that the iPad?? I want one!!"
