So what do I use it for?
In not particular order:
It's the best web surfing device I have.
I keep all my photographic manuals, flash cards, and reference material on it for easy access.
It carries my electronic portfolio.
I do a number of talks in the area and it carries slide shows (Photomagico) and movies (FinalCut) I use in my presentations.
I use it as a backup computer for my teaching.
It is a great GPS device for when I looking for those remote shooting location.
I use my laptop for running slide competitions at the local camera club and I record all the results with my iPad using Numbers.
I have my contacts and calendar on it and it sink with our computer network.
I keep a database of my image on it thanks to Bento.
I run my Keynotes presentation from it.
It is a note taker and general word processing.
When I have to wait I play solitaire, sudoku, chess, listen to music, read books or watch a movie.
The only dedicated photo app I use is a DOF calculator.
I am told you can, in the field, down load you images to it but I don't as I am a frugal photographer and seldom fill up a memory card.
