I’ve been talking a lot on some forums about the iPad – pros and cons.
I think my Dell Studio 15″ heard and took offence. It decided at that moment to start going crazy – the fan running constantly on high, the keyboard not responding to keypresses at random. Seems to be a known issue with motherboard flex/cracking. Tonight it would turn on at all. Removing and reseating the battery seemed to fix all of the above though.
Have made a full backup anyway just in case.
All in one desktop or larger screen (17″) notebook I think for main PC
Still got my Dell Inspiron Mini for portable netbooky use
Have a Sony Reader and iPod nano for travelling (but combining the netbook, reader and nano would be a good call for an iPad)
I have a fair bit of travelling to do over the coming weeks / months, so tempted to replace the ipod nano which is also getting flaky – with an iPod touch until the ipad is released. Decent video and bettery is a must. The iTouch just about cuts it as a stopgap.
