I find that I only use my MBP at work and when I'm at home I almost exclusively use my iPad 2.

Been watching the refurb site in Canada....haven"t seen an ipad for days, but many in the U.S. Just wondering if we in Canada aren't buying as many ...seems strange that there is almost all of the Apple products in refurb but the ipad.

Did you notice that iPad 3 is gone from the store? The US store has some in the refurb store.

Here is an on topic question for other owners of iPad1 - I take mine on business all the time and it has a terrible time with hotel wifi. It connects well but the loading speed and "bars" suffers during surfing sessions. Anyone have a thought as to the poor reception? Is it software related (iOS5 only), hardware related or is almost every hotel wifi the culprit? At home it is not so bad but I suspect it may be the construction of the hotels - concrete and steel are the issues. Would a new generation of iPad or MBA suffer the same issues?

I've noticed this with my BB Playbook. If you are in a McDs or Starbucks no problem, even on the train it is faster...but hotels.....sloooooooooooow.

Maybe the hotels are cheaping out and not upgrading their ten year old 802.11g wireless routers to the 802.11n standard (let alone the new 802.11ac ones).

Good list Chas. I'd add organize big collection of reference documents and navigation on roads and boats. Since getting a Zagg keyboard case, my iPad gets a lot more use than ever. Ipad2 not iPad1, but not compelled to upgrade yet, and our daughters' are impatiently waiting for me to do that. Wife very happy with her iPad2.

Cute! I bought a new MacBook Air three weeks ago and my sister is already counting the days until I get tired of it
