These days many people are considering purchasing an Ipad rather than a regular laptop or a netbook. I’m convinced that the Ipad isn’t an alternative, but would better serve as a supplement to a full size (or at least full power) PC.
I have tried the Ipads, but I have to tell you that they are no substitute for acer laptops that are modern or powerful. Of course, if money is a problem, choose a real laptop… you can quite a really decent for the same price as GPS/Wifi 16GB Ipad.
Of course, if money is NO object: buy a Wifi-Hotspot phone, an Ipad, a Kindle, and a notebook, too. It wil only cost you about about $2000 or so!
