For the last two years, I have been using iPads at home. Everyone in the house has their own. Started thinking about a month ago, whether or not I needed a laptop; something more powerful than the iPad. I went to the Apple store and looked at the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. I really liked them, but ultimately decided to just upgrade my iPad 2 to the 4. I bought the Kensington Pro 2 keyboard case for my new iPad along with Apple's pages, keynote, and numbers apps. I think that is all I really needed. I have found that I am able to do everything that I need with this combination of accessories and apps. It has truly become a laptop replacement for me. I know that isn't going to be the case for everyone, but who else has replaced their laptop with the iPad?
