Games on the app store are cool, but they can sometimes be limited by the lack of mouse or keyboard.
Cloud services are great, but tend to be an expensive alternative to HDD or DVDs. I have well over 5Gb in pictures and videos alone on my iphone collected over 2 years and i do not use it much. But high res pictures and videos will need some space.
Adapter, adapter, and next thing you know? just buy an ultrabook. Look I love apple products. But, the iPad IMO (maybe not yours) is not there yet. I wouldn't consider an iphone a PC either (dont use the whole definition of the fact it computes stuff, so does my 20 dollar calculator, is that a computer? sorta but the type we are talking? no, by no means) an iphone is a smartphone, not a computer an ipad is a tablet not a tablet PC or a PC.
Crazy, cause i did a google search, and even STEVE JOBS himself, said its not a PC as we know it. Which is what i am aruging.
Jesus, are you doubling down on an indefensible position.

Smartphone is a computer. Look ma, keyboard and mouse:

Yes, both smartphones and tablets meet the definition of a general purpose personal computer and some even look like traditional laptops when docked.
The iPhone/iPad + aTV + 32" HDTV + BT keyboard is as close as Apple comes (use the iPhone/iPad as a trackpad) but Moto and ASUS clearly shows that this a choice by Apple and not a technical limitation.
