When I travel I'm always having to drag my laptop around. All I use it for when I'm away from home is checking email, counting money/stats in my aff accounts and occasionally working. So I'm thinking all I need is a little Acer netbook and I'll hook up via wi-fi. But the ipad would be awesome for watching movies on a plane etc. Does anyone have an ipad and do you really use it for work or just to have something cool with apps (that I would never personally use that I can think of). And wtf is it with 3g or 4g aircards compared to the ipad??? If you get an ipad with 3g, you get the AT&T service plan for $29.99/month but if you want an aircard from sprint or whoever, it' slike $60/month??
