Good day all! I need your help with a decision (again) . Having changed to a 17" MBP recently, from a 13", I'm in the market for something smaller as a secondary unit. Something about me and my computing-needs I'm an engineering student. I don't like dragging a 17" to school very often, but I do like to be able to check the web at campus when I please. I use the old pencil and paper for note-taking whenever possible. I also like watching movies and such when traveling. The idea is to keep this unit in my bag at all times, bringing it with me instead of the 17" when I can. The iPad IS nice, I had the first generation for a couple of weeks before the iPad 2 launched, but returned it to get the iPad 2 (or as of now, maybe a netbook). The main reason I'm considering a netbook is the price. I'll save roughly 180$ if I buy a Asus Eee 1015PEM. I don't wanna spend more money on this unit than the cost of the 16GB iPad 2. http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=4Bf6sc0o5FMGABzh I figure both units can do the same (the netbook a little more), and since I already have an iPhone 4 - why even considering an iPad 2? If my reasoning has any flaws, please correct me before I make a mistake here. Thanks!
