The iPad is a better laptop

For some things at least. Yesterday evening i was doing some coding on my laptop. When i finished, i put my laptop away, and grabbed the ipad to do some internet reading. I actually put the laptop away to use my ipad. Why? The ipad is just a limited laptop. I can open a browser on a laptop. Still, for reading on a couch the iPad is a much better device. No useless keyboard in the way.

Luke Wroblewski posted some interesting statistics yesterday about the post-pc era. The one that surprised me most: Sales of Apple’s iPad pulled in 30% more than all of Dell’s consumer PC business in just the first half of the year. Seems like many people agree that tablets are better than laptops.
