I currently own a 3GS. I am going to South Africa for World Cup this summer. I want to bring my UMBP, but I just don't want to bring that thing all the way over there to basically store my pictures that I take. And I'm leaving my 3GS home, too. Don't really wanna rack up a $500 phone bill over the 2 1/2 weeks I am there(I know myself...I WILL use the phone even though I know the cost). So I thought about it, and the iPad in this case seems like a great alternative at a pretty reasonable price(32gig $599 model. 12 megapixel camera fills cards fast, plus I will bring music and movies). I can drop photos from my camera onto the pad and instantly view them on a larger-than-iPhone screen, without the worry of having my $2000 laptop being discovered by thieves who will no doubt be all over the place looking to prey upon drunk, soccer-mad tourists. And maybe I can find some WiFi spots for free and do a little surfing there. If anyone can think of any negatives about this idea, let me know. I'm trying to think of other options to keep my travel gear to a minimum.
