I am not going out to buy another gadget, but Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal thinks the iPad does a bang up job of replacing a laptop for a lot of people. And it gets 11 hours of use on battery power. That’s outstanding.
I’ll tell you this, the iPad will do a good job of replacing those video players people use for their children or for airplane trips. But, without USB or multi-tasking, it’s not going to cut the grade for me.
Here are two videos of Mossberg reviewing the device. Below that is a link to his column at the Wall Street Journal as well. Also see Paul Kedrosky’s "Bloomberg Goes iPad." Enjoy.
