I'm happy with both. They serve entirely different purposes in my life. I rarely turn on my laptop anymore because I do most web surfing on my iPad.

Both have their own purposes to me. I love the iPhone 4 for the use when I am out and such. It's very portable, obviously. And it's great when I need to find something onion quick. But at home I prefer my iPad for extended use. More screen real estate makes my life easier most of the time. I can not say I like one more than the other.

I'm happy with my trifecta.


iPhone for complete mobile communications
iPad for media consumption and couch surfing
iMac for video editing and most of my content creation

They all serve their purpose and one isn't "better" than the other based on what I use them specifically for.

I disagree, i think the iPad and the iphone dont serve enough of a different perpose to justify having both. Each to their own though i found it pointless after a while though.

I LOVE my iPad. I don't use my MacBook very often anymore. The battery is usually dead in it if I do use it. I'd rather have a 3GS iPhone and iPad then only and iPhone 4.

This thread has been done before.

OP use Search before you start such a thread!

I'll answer anyway as it adds to my count.

I like both equally, as was posted above each has their use.

I'm in the same boat so ditto here. Love all 3, soon to be four. New iMac and MBP coming soon.

Retina and mobility.
same boat here. Was going to purchase an ipad and then realized the ip4 is amazing for almost everything and if i need more computer power i bring out the macbook. Personally I dont see a use for anything in between.

iPhone 4: Higher display resolution, ability to take pics/movies, ability to make phone calls, and the most important... mobility.

They are totally different beast... iPhone is great in doing many stuff but iPad is unrivaled in reading books and magazine.

Yes you can read Kindle and iBooks with iPhone but it's pretty small and I find it uncomfortable to read for extended period of time.

Another thing is that I use Zinio to read my magazines (mostly: The Economist and Bloomberg Newsweek). Unfortunately, the two magazines are only available on iPad format and not iPhone... :(

Also agreed. I own the same as you. All 3 of them.

That being said, Apple purposely "downclocked the iphone 4 A4 processor". If it were running at full 1GZ speed as opposed to the presumed 700 mhz clock speed, there would be a huge argument one can make about just getting the iPhone 4 over the ipad (if their eyesight is fine for the smaller 3.5 inch iphone 4 screen).

When I had my 3GS I loved it. Then when I got my iPad at launch I only used the iPhone for calls. Then when I got my iPhone 4 I rarely used the iPad and sold it. New gadget wins.

Overall though the iPhone now accomplishes the one thing that would've made the iPad a keeper for me. Video conferencing.

Owning Apple Products is like being a parent...you love them all, they are all special, and you interact with each differently.
I love my iPhone...it is portable, has a beautiful display, makes calls, texts, and can pull up emails that I might need throughout the day, but, for major things it's just too difficult to read/scroll. The iPad is more comfortable for portable computing needs: reading, watching TV/Movies, email, games, etc.
My MBP is the tie that binds. It's the powerhouse and keeps the rest of the kids in line.

Wise words, Brandonsc.

Granted, I really am gonna get an ip4 as soon as I can get time to start calling around to find one.... um... to compliment my iPad (which I use really for books and web surfing)
