Well the answer from me may not be what you expect - but is based on what I actually do.

I gave up on standard laptops and use an iPad - upload pictures to it then dump them on Dropbox when I get wifi, do my website and other work on it, and even use logmein to access a desktop running at home.

I see no need for the weight, fragility and complexity of a standard laptop, when the iPad does pretty well everything, and plays movies better!

I am currently using a small compact Sony Laptop for travel but i am becoming an Apple convert.  Using an iphone these days after jumping ship from the blackberry along with the laptop but I am sure an ipad would be much better lighter, slimmer for travel and would easily sync up with an iphone.  Plus from what I have seen of the ipad the screen quality looks excellent  ;D

You can break any gadget - laptop or iPad. Some iPad covers offer greater strength than a laptop can take.

And the original iPad, the version 1, is selling cheap now as the iPad 2 is on sale at the same price points as the previous version. Go grab one (try the Apple refurb store for real deals).

Yup - Android tablets are cheap.

But not many can import photos, and there are few (if any) photo editing apps.

You pays your money and you gets your choice.

The fact that the iPad has upwards of 85% of the tablet market is not just marketing, it is down to it doing things well.

I still suggest a refurb iPad 1 is your best option.

If you are going with an ipad it maybe worth checking out the cashback deals that quidco website are offering.  I use this for plenty of onlines purchases and it add's up to more savings and discount!    ;D
