EDIT: oh you edited and added context, I apologise.
I was more talking about how stupid people look when using them. I appreciate that tablets have some merit but not as productivity devices/note takers.

I have an iPad, and I love it. Take it to uni every day, use it all day in the library and taking notes in lectures. Still has loads of battery left for the evening, and then charge it at night.
Tbh, before I had one, I never saw the need for one. I never brought my computer into uni (although, mine is a massive Dell, and I probably wouldn't have complained so much with a mac. Surely they're really easy to carry around already?). But now, I have it, I realise how much I use it, in the library just to quickly look something up, and then I can pop it back in my bag easily so imnot distracted by it (facebook etc.) and in lectures, I always found myself day dreaming and never taking notes when I was handwriting. But with the iPad,I almost write down everything the lecturer says, (I find it really easy to type on it...not like what others have said. But then...I would never write an essay on it!) and then after the lecturer, I handwrite notes from what I've written in the lecture (I prefer revising from my own notes).
So I would definitely recommend, if you have the money...but then you do already have a MacBook....? You do have an iPhone and a mac already though...so I would judge you :P my laptop is 4 years old, and my phone is a £30 piece of crap, so only my iPad is anything that's really worth anything. Plus, I would recommend getting the 3G one. Ive got the 3G one, I don't have a sim card now, but you never know what may happen in the future and you may want one. So I'd rather pay the extra to have the option, rather than getting annoyed in the future that you can't.
Don't see the difference between an iPad 2 or 3. So I would get the iPad 2 for less money. But does Apple still sell iPad 2? I know they stopped the first generation after the second one came out.
