Re: Just posted: Apple iPad 2: Tool or Toy?

Conversely, why would any serious photographer choose that thinkpad over a 15" or 17" screen laptop?

Gee, I don't know, but maybe because he's already carrying loads of photo gear and doesn't want to add the 17" monstrosity that weighs 12 lbs and has 45 mins of battery life. A small but powerful laptop that can get 5-6 hours is a reasonable compromise. Especially since most photographers are dexterous enough to swap batteries (no matter what Steve Jobs thinks).
