We were told to take all the VM equipment to our new address (non-cabled) area and it would be collected today 8am-12pm. Unsurprisingly, no-one turned up.

The cable box is 10+ years old. The modem...

Agree. Laptops (and netbooks) are better for some things, and some users. iPad for others. Choice is good and I wouldn't presume to tell anyone which is right for them.

Battery life is from our experiances here, and we've thousands of them. 10 hours+ life on the iPad is while doing battery intensive stuff, like video.

Well yes, the App Store runs on Pc/Mac (as well as directly on iPhone/iPod/iPad) but it is specifically for iPod (touch)/iPhone and iPad apps. That's the point. A very nice, easy to use eco-system.

Not true. An Apple laptop is around 500 more, as is an equally specced, equally well built pc. Of course a laptop doesn't have a gorgeous multitouch screen, huge battery life and the app store.

So far it has far surpassed any use I personally have for a laptop.

Air video requires server software to be running on your Mac or PC in order to transcode on the fly. I stream from my ReadyNAS to my iPad, but my Mac needs to be on in order to do the conversion.

7am on the 10th. 32gb wifi.

Also got a 3 MiFi with PAYG data. Better value for me than the 3g model as only expecting to need 3g occasionally.
