Since I have an iMac at home, I have to agree with you on that. I do not think that it would be the perfect option for a sole computer. But, if its max portability with only word processing, video watching, etc. that you need, then the iPad fits the bill.
I'd still hold out for the new models. Or, saving that, switch from Mac alltogether and get one of the new Ultrabooks shown at CES. The new HP model looks pretty sweet.
