    Laptop.  The ipad will never replace the laptop and I have a feeling that macbook would enjoy retirement. 🙂

    I’d get a laptop since it has more uses. There are a lot of things you just can’t do with an ipad.

    I vote laptop only because you already have an iPad….my macbook is about 5 years old going on 6 and I ordered the new iPad but I dont have one and it was a gift

      My vote is a new laptop. I know that there are a lot of differences between the iPad and the iPad 2, but there aren’t a ton between the iPad 2 and the iPad 3. I’m sure that a new iPad model will come out next year…maybe that one will be a little more different. I had just an iPad for awhile, and while it did 90% of what I needed it to do, I really missed a few things (Flash, being able to easily connect it to my printer, and storage space).

    Definitely the laptop, and this is coming from someone who already preordered the new iPad. As you know, the iPad has limitations that a laptop doesn’t. Those limitations aren’t so bad for me because I have other computers to use but I could never just have an iPad. Since your laptop won’t last forever, you should probably take care of that now.

    ETA: OP, sorry, just saw your update. The laptop is definitely the way to go. Are you going to go with a new MacBook?

    I’m not an Apple fan (don’t hate!) but if I had to choose I would go for the laptop.

    I personally have never understood the purpose of an Ipad other than it is just one more popular toy to purchase.

    @Treejewel19:  We have an android tablet and it was great for travel. Watching movies and reading stuff on it on the plane and even watching stuff while in bed on our honeymoon was fun! Besides travel… we use it as a remote control for our computer, which is hooked up to both our TVs lol. It also can be useful for looking up something quick online, or showing a slideshow of images to family… stuff like that. Overall though, laptops are so much more well roundedly useful than a tablet.

    I say go with the laptop, OP.

    I was going to say iPad but since you already have 1st gen I would upgrade the lappy… currently using a 6year macbook and Fiance got a new MacBook Pro last christmas which he loves (and I love when I use because even though he’s upgraded my ram his is much faster)

     edit: asked Fiance for input… he does’t think the new iPad is different enough (thankfully! or we’d be upgrading LOL)
