There was a story on the news yesterday that most people who bought an iPad simply to have as a computer are finding it doesn't do everything a laptop does. For example, iPads can't play flash content, so a lot of websites that show video you can't access. Also, it's not something I would like to type on daily unless I had an extra keyboard... And once you get the extra keyboard, you might as well just have gotten a laptop.
The iPad is great if you just want something for a couple days of computing if you go on a trip, to watch videos you have in iTunes or another app, or playing games.
I have an iPod touch, an iPhone, an iPad, a Macbook Pro and a Windows computer. I've found I don't use the Windows computer, I use my laptop. The iPhone I use a lot, the iPad I'll use if I just want to curl up on the couch or if I'm going somewhere I don't want to take my laptop with me. I rarely use the iPod touch since I got the iPhone, and I'll probably leave that for the baby to use in a few years to play games on.
