Recent statistics at IDC point to ~50 million iPads have been sold to date.
I most surely will bet you that at least 1 million of those owners only have an iPad. They are the so-called "casual users" such as the elderly, tech averse, Oprah-fans, etc.
Just in my circle of colleagues/clients both private and corporate, there are over 60 that I have personally set up over the last year since iPad 2 and iOS5 came to market. In the process, those clients dumped their aging Windows PC's, both laptops and desktops equally. I've been posting updates to this phenomenon every time this subject comes up.
BTW: Tech-consulting is not my main job even, it's just a peripheral activity I am asked to assist in.
PS. (added)... sorry for the facetious statistic. It sometimes get tiring pointing out the obvious and having to back it up always to the people that can't put 2 and 2 together for themselves.
(Added again)== Ask yourself: just who is purchasing iPads... because we know the tech people hate it... the Android crowd hates it... the I want a full OSX or file system crowd hates it... WHO IS PURCHASING iPads as fast as Apple can make them???
