William McGuire asks:

"With the availability of the keyboard dock (any info on the price?), does anyone see the iPad as a laptop killer as well?"

Definitely. Given some more software, some way to print documents and photos, and it'll do it. Today it's a sidekick device but a few years from now... well, when I reviewed the original iPhone in 2007 I declared that the Mac and PC's "proxy interaction" model of mouse-and-screen were dead, they just didn't know it yet. Today I have the proof. Pro laptops will survive, but I think consumer laptops are going to become an endangered species.
