I've long wanted to ditch lugging my laptop for shorter trips for the iPad. I still need some of the features and functions of a laptop, but could do without the extra weight (and hassle of pulling the laptop out during airport security checks). I'm going to give it a try this holiday break when I head over to NYC, making the iPad my only machine partnered with this slimline Logitech Bluetooth wireless keyboard... The fit and finish blends right in with the tablet's industrial design, with a protective aluminum screen cover and responsive white chiclet-style keys (typing takes a little practice, since the keys are positioned a little closer than the laptop or an external keyboard). Additional features to help living without a laptop (for a short trip): copy, paste, and undo shortcut keys, with an impressive 6-month battery life on a full charge.
