iPad user's firsthand account: Some wow, some size problems

iPad will replace my laptop and smart phone
iPad will replace my laptop and smart phone

Having lived with my Apple iPad for a day, and being in no way a tech expert, I thought I'd pass along the perceptions of the newest toy from an experienced computer user. I'm generally very pleased with the product, with a couple of reservations.

The reviews I've read fall into two categories; comparing it to the owner's workhorse laptop/desktop, or comparing it to a smart phone. I think both comparisons are unfair, like condemning a cow for being slower than a horse and faster than mold.
