If someone convince me, I might buy one on this Black Friday
Any device fills in for different needs, I would say. I use the MacBook when I am on the road, e.g. going to conventions and am sure I will have a decent hotel room or a spot at the convention center where I can work. The IPad comes in handy during flights, or at places where a Notebook would be inconvenient, e.g. When lying by the pool
The IPad is small enough to be carried around in a woman's handbag, needs no accessories, like mouse, or a huge AC connector. So, when it only comes to presenting something at a convention (which is a major part of my job) I just rely on my IPad. The presentation files are stored on it and you can connect it to any beamer.
And: my MacBook's battery lasts only about 1/2 to 2/3 the time my IPad lasts. If you are just writing texts or creating presentations without using the 3G functionality, you can work for more than 15 hours without recharging it.
I would say if you do not have a notebook at this time, you should first think of buying a decent notebook. I always suggest going Mac, but if you're more a Windows-Man, it's ok.
If you already have a notebook, well, then think about expanding your view with an IPad.
