Especially valid in my household today since my sweetie just got herself an iPad 2 despite rocking my previous MacBook Pro. I wouldn’t quite qualify it as a work machine for her, but being a flight attendant, she’ll likely end up doing most of her work-related online tasks on it, plus have a lighter/smaller device to carry around in her luggage while on the go.
I, for one, have no desire for a tablet at the moment. I’m in heaven with my MacBook Air. Only thing that would make it better is built-in 3G. Then again, given how carriers go, it’d likely mean having to pay for two data accounts. I’m perfectly fine with using Personal HotSpot for that, through my iPhone instead. :)
