Do you believe that IPAD is the replacement of laptops? I don’t think because some time it is easy to use keyboard rather than touch screen and if there is a need of high end work desktops work fine. So in my view there is no replacement and all the things will have their own existence. What are your views about them? Do you have an IPAD?

It is not necessary that Ipad will replace labtop, but touch screen will definitely will turn into a main stream after sometime. I do not have an Ipad, I will wait for the price to go down further before I will purchase any Ipad or similar to Ipad. It is still not worth it to buy when it is still new, and I do not like it when the storage is so little but it cost so much when compare to labtop.

I don't have an Ipad myself yet, I just wonder would the price dropped for the Black Friday this year. If the price right on November, I might get up early again, and make a purchase one more time for myself. In answering your question. I don't think Ipad will replace laptop any time sooner. But in the near future, it might though. I just can't type fast with touch screen keyboard though.

I agree I was thinking about replacing my laptop for only an Ipad but now I plan to purchase both the Ipad and a new laptop that is bluetooth capable of course.

I do not have an IPAD but I consider it a waste of money. It is like a huge Iphone. How could this thing replace laptops, if it does not even have a place to stand on so you can use it properly?

no, ipad cannot replace laptops, theare are still features that ipad does not have that laptops have. and it is hard to use ipad when it comes to typing, typing using the keyboard is still much easier than touchscreen. there are alot of limits of typing using touchscreen, and typing using touchscreen is slower.

Well, it's not an good idea to sell an laptop to buy an iPad (2). You will need a PC or a Mac to activate your iPad. With an iPad you can make videocalls, use keynote (instead of PP), use pages(instead of Word), use numbers(instead of excel) and also make music with garageband. Surf the web and read email, you can make almost everything with it.

Im sure that it is and that's what it was always suppossed to be, but i dont think i am ready for that as long as alot of the rest of the world feels the same. First it was laptops instead of desktops, notebooks, phones with computer capabilities, touch screen portable telephone/intenet connection was simply the next step. And to be honest i wonder wht the one after will be?? Like those cars that can parrallel park themselves ( i can't even do that) ;S I dont have an Ipad but i wish to have 1 soon i am just not reaady to get rid of my laptop yet i still love it and take it everywhere... it has lots of apps and extras and memory. I will convery wheni am dissatissfied with my laptop and impressed with the apple ipad advncements. I am already hearing faults and they have a new edition ready that they aren't even planning to release to people complain about the second generation. That doesn't inspire mch confidence in my opinion.

I'd actually like to have one just for Facebook/Netflix, etc. but I still much prefer my keyboard and mouse for typing.
