An American in Paris Says Au Revoir to His Laptop

Can you live with just an iPad on a working vacation?

Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal, has a positive experience when he takes an iPad to Paris in lieu of his laptop. I will hazard that as the apps for iPad mature and expand, this will become very common indeed, faster than everybody, including me, had expected.

"Overall, my attempt to substitute a tablet for a laptop was a big success, and I’d do it again for a short trip or working vacation. As tablets get better, this will only become easier. For instance, Microsoft is working on a touch-based tablet version of Windows that could make the slates even better laptop replacements."
