One thing that has occurred to me while test driving is that the iPad requires a considerable amount of hand travel across the screen in comparison to a notebook with a touchpad. I wonder if this would get old in practice. While in bed, I rest my Macbook on my stomach, propped up vertically, supporting it with my left hand while navigating the touchpad with my right hand. Being that the touchpad is small and close to the "bottom" of the computer while propped up vertically, I can rest my arms comfortably and perform the majority of tasks within a 3" area of the touchpad. With the iPad, navigation requires moving my hand across the entire surface of the screen, over and over. This is compounded by the iPad's glaring lack of gestures and combination taps, sorely missing from apps like Safari. Has anyone else been bothered by the constant need to traverse the entire screen every time you want to move forward or backward on a webpage, or any other operation that requires your hand to visit the top of the screen repeatedly? With any luck an update will bring multitouch gestures and multi finger taps.
