Yes I did enjoy my iPod touch. It was a lot easier to carry around and use than a laptop and blurays. Have you ever tried opening up a decent sized laptop on a plane? First class isn't available on all flights unfortunately, and opening a laptop in economy is nearly impossible.
Now the iPad exists so I use that.
When I travel I carry my BlackBerry, iPad and 14" ThinkPad. Thats it. No discs, no books, no magazines. Digital media has made travelling a much more pleasant experience.
That's what amazes me about this site, and I realise it's a fan site, but Jobs could gun some clown down in the street and you would all attempt to justify it. I have used macs for the last five years, I love them, I have an iPad, Apple tv and used to have an iPhone, but some things are just some things. This isn't about giving you a better alternative, as there isn't one to BR. None exist. I'm not talking portability here, I'm talking sitting at home in front of a 50" screen and getting streamed 720P when you could have 1080P, and hoping your internet holds up.
The context of this discussion is laptops, where bluray just isn't needed. At home I have bluray, although I must admit I hardly use it. I know its the highest quality option, but between HDTV and Apple TV, well I don't have many scenarios where I need bluray.
The Planet Earth documentary series is one noted exception. That content should only ever be viewed on bluray. Its amazing.
