I'm definitely going to buy an ipad when they come out. When I'm relaxing at home I'm only doing basic browsing/email on the sofa so its perfect. but I can't not have a real computer for times when I need to do larger tasks. I had an imac, but found I didn't use it that much as it meant going upstairs to the study. I then bought a macbook which was much more useful due to its portability, but the screen was small for photo editing. I now have a 15" MBP. I also have a mac mini under the TV for home cinema/download management/DVD ripping duties (its on 24/7 at the moment). I tend to manage this using screen sharing from the MBP - I don't have a keyboard or mouse attached to it (I use a harmony remote and plex for HCPC duties) So, assuming I have an ipad for browsing duties, that opens options up quite a bit I think: 1) have no computer. I already have my mac mini which I can use with a mouse/keyboard on my 1080p TV for photo editing etc, and I can continue to remotely manage it using screen sharing or VNC client. 2) buy an imac. Gives me more horsepower (proper quad core processors) and a fantastic screen which can also be used with a games console/sky HD box (HDMI -> displayport adapter). Yes, I'd have to go upstairs to do tasks, but thats fine as I can still use the ipad for browsing while the machine upstairs is doing stuff. 3) keep my MBP. Dont' overcomplicate things 4) buy a new 15" MBP. I'm thinking mainly for the battery life rather than any speed bump. Then I could start to do fuller tasks and still be untethered from my desk if needed. 5) buy a 13" base model MBP. Again, mainly for the battery. I have an external monitor to get more real estate for doing proper work on, and with the ipad it would mean I could leave it in clamshell mode doing stuff and I'd still have internet etc. Thoughts?
