With the promise of an iPad 2 coming Wednesday, I'm thinking of finally pulling the trigger and buying one of the new iPads. (likely mid-range 3G). I'll probably be selling my 13" black MB (2.16 C2D) and a 2nd gen iPod Touch (8GB) to finance part of the purchase. My question is: What will I be giving up by switching most of my mobile computing to this device? I teach high school and view/edit a lot of MS Office docs (so I'll need a good office suite, either iWork or similar). I create docs less frequently, but fairly regularly. Lots of internet, mail, video (dvd and stream), and similar consumption-end activities. I'll keep my home 'content creation' system (MBP, monitor, KB, etc.) and will have easy access to a <shiver> Windows 7 machine at work (for gradebook app and for projecting dvd's, ppts, etc. that I create or edit on the iPad) So, What teaching tasks are likely to be more difficult if the iPad becomes my primary mobile computing device? What tasks are likely to be easier? What apps and/or accessories can you recommend to help me do my job and to share data between home and school computers? any 'remote' screen sharing apps that will work with the iPad and Win 7 and OSX.6? Thanks for the input. Looking forward (hopefully) to joining the iPad ranks!
