Well I REALLY wanted to use my new iPad as a way to answer emails and surf the web at home. The apps are truly incredible and the Netflix app is really appealling. If I traveled alot I'd keep it just for that one app. I'm sure I'd get used to the weight. The battery life is incredible. There is no need for Flash, the apps are great. But I just can't type with it. I type the old-fashioned way with my hands resting on the keyboard. You just can't do that with a touchscreen display. I find it easier to answer my emails with my iPhone. Any ideas short of buying a bluetooth keyboard?
