i might be moving into an office environment and i was wondering if it was worth me getting an i Pad. I have already played with a few and they seem good for the style of work i might be doing (Estimator with a domestic house slab company)

your thoughts??

I hate typing on them for any more than about a sentence - for that reason I wouldnt get one.

Pick up a laptop for less thats better specced and has more options.

Just my opinion.

I guess it depends entirely on what you will be doing on it...

Depends what your using it for. I wont get another laptop again, but will go for a Mac PC and probably the Ipad. Laptops are too bulky and heavy and when moving around all the time and just a general pain in the ass. We are using ipads on the wards now and they are magic.

The iPad 3g $750 with Nextg sim that comes for $150 12Gig and 12 month expiry would be good for you. iPad is instant on and responsive, if you dont end up using for work it would be great for in your car and out bush.

Pretty cheap for what you get.
Telstra EH?

For mobile voice and Internet Telstra at this stage is only company that supplies good service. The no contract $150 12Gig 12mth is pretty good and is a Telstra special for iPad as normally the expiry is 30 days.
