Should I start using an iPad 2 instead of a MBP for the net?

    I spend about 3 hours a day surfing the Internet. That includes reading articles, surfing forums, watching YouTube, and watching free TV shows (legal) on places like CBS.com . Anyway, I've been doing this on my Macbook Pro 15", but I find myself uncomfortable sitting on a computer chair and using the computer for hours on end (in addition to the hours I spend working). BUT I appreciate the screen size.

    So my question is: Would the iPad 2 be a satisfactory replacement for my MBP for my leisure time? Or would the greatly diminished screen size and other factors make it not worth it? I plan to keep the MBP, but hopefully this would reduce the wear and tear on it and let me enjoy net content more comfortably.

    It's great for me, but it sounds like you need something that does Flash video. Unless CBS.com is using HTML5 video...?

    Skyfire Browser with flash support... that might work.
