My opinion: I could not use an iPad That had only a dock connection and a 64 GB hard drive. Nor would I use a computer that required me to purchase All entertainment from I supplier.

There has not been much discussion of possible applications of the iPad for business. I sit on the board of a credit union and receive 50+ B&W pages of background information, before every meeting. It would wonderful to have it all on the iPad where I could easily view, search and archive all of it. To be truly useful, the iPad would have to display pdf files and have sort of annotation capability, such as that included with Preview. The iPad is a far less intrusive device for meetings than a laptop, is easier to use, more portable, and has longer battery life (the length of some of our meetings exceeds the battery life of my MacBook Pro). At the $500 price for the iPad, companies and organizations could readily justify buying the device for directors and employees. I hope that developers will give thought to creating business apps for this new device.
