My friends are all trying to convince me to get an iPad and I feel otherwise. However, comments they gave, put some thought into my head as to review my 1001 reasons why I shouldn't get an iPad. Hence, would like to have a poll.

Mainly for traveling or even events' photography purpose as a probable storage for your photos. If you can only choose 1 from the above selections, what will it be??? ;p

I dun think a portable harddisk can function on it's own...so ya need a laptop with it, in that case, might as well just get a laptop with sufficient free harddisk space?

I think ipad is decent, small and compact to carry around. Battery life is pretty good too, and power up immediately like the iphone. Cons is you either need a camera kit or eye fi to transfer your files over.

For me, I'm going with the ipad route...but i using the ipad not as a storage, since I dun think I can fill up 2 x 16GB so far, but mainly as a bigger screen for preview my photos when travelling.

1. There are external media drives - basically a harddisk with memory card readers, no need to attach to a laptop.

2. iPad and iPhone have a camera connection kit, but it's SLOOOOOW. and the iPad has very limited storage space.

I'd suggest just buying extra memory cards. They're cheap.

Get a macbook.
Be it storage, accessing your photos, photo editting, basic laptop functions, you name it, they have it.

iPad is a big NoNo to me.
Its like an oversized iPod Touch, too big to bring it out and keep it when your eating, and its too weak at home.(compared to laptop/netbook)

Maybe iPad is the way of life if...
you have an online portfolio and you have wifi/3g plan, however it can be done simply using a macbook. ;)
