I can't believe I'm asking this question but recently I've had experience with a couple of friends who have IPads and use them for travel. From what I've seen they aren't bad for what my needs are.
The only negative would be the typing feature. I tried it on their's and it wasn't bad.
My needs are for photos, some writing and Internet access.
I purchased a netbook around two years ago and have used that for travel but I have to admit that I definitely don't "love" it. The small screen size and the keyboard can be "frustrating".
So my questions are: Who uses an IPad for travel? Does it fulfill your needs and what are those needs? Would you recommend it?
