I've been reading through Michael Sliwinski's excellent posts about the iPad as his primary computer. I went through a similar process a while back. It's not that the iPad is ideal for all of my needs (it's not and a full keyboard is simply faster for me) but like many things, we try them because we can. Sort of like going paperless- we try various experiments simply to test ourselves. Part of being human I suppose. Here's a surprisingly great argument for the iPad in the increasingly hot summer months- it doesn't get hot on your lap. No kidding. When I'm working on a blog post late at night, the iPad is an excellent writing companion. What's been surprising about your use of the iPad so far?
