    The advent of the iPad plus not having a work laptop means I no longer have or want a personal laptop. But...I will have to re-examine that when it's time to replace my iPad 3. Could a laptop that's just as small with same or better battery life be the better of an iPad for home and travel? Hrmmm... I don't think so for me, but it will be worth considering next year.

    While I still need some desktop use at home, the iPad means I don't need a personal laptop. Don't do 'heavy lifting' on the road. Or on the couch in front of the TV. :)

    I think it's getting to be a tossup for many people, and comes down to budget. One modern laptop is cheaper and better compromose than a desktop and tablet.



    I saw that stand via some other blog. Pretty clever.
