Presumably the 3G version does not have free 3G connection?

That I don't know, but sincerely doubt. Perhaps it needs to be tethered to a mobile contract?

No, Clive, it's just like any smartphone in that respect.

But if you were looking at it as a replacement for the desktop, you wouldn't have had 3G on the desktop anyway, or wanted to take it away from your home Wi-Fi. At least the iPad has Wi-Fi, so it is more portable in that respect.

Regard it as an alternative to a net book.

My main issue is can I manage without a desktop if I bought a reasonably nice laptop?  And perhaps an iPad merely for research purposes.   ;D

Again, it depends what you intend to use it for. I still think, bang for buck, you get more for a desktop than you do with a laptop, because you're paying extra for the convenience of a laptop.

Yes, but what Simon says is true. I foresee a laptop/iPad era for me in due course.

I need to squeeze my netbook in there somehow since I've already got it.   :laugh:

Squeeze hard enough and it will, no longer, be a problem. ;)
