I, for one, will buy the iPad, probably the 64 GB with 3G. My PowerBook is getting a bit long in tooth, and I can foresee many uses that may not immediately be apparent. In my job (nurse practitioner), I need quick access to progress notes of my patients, progress notes that I can easily modify/update. My office could send me an email with the file anywhere using 3G (at a very reasonable price). Another thing I like is the instant-on capability, so if I need to quickly modify a spreadsheet, I don't have to wait while a laptop boots up. Imagine all the painting/photo modification apps on the iPhone/iPod touch with a bigger screen. I've also downloaded and am using Dragon Dictation. This can become extremely useful for dictating my notes. Finally, $30 for unlimited data sounds great to me, certainly a whole lot better than $60.

I have to agree, it is going to be very interesting to see how the iPad sells the certain industry markets such as the medical field. With the correct applications it would seem to fit the bill as a perfect small, lightweight device that could be carried with a doctor while they run rounds, a fleet mechanic while they check vehicles, a person checking inventory... For entities trying to switch to more technology and increased efficiency it might be just the product. Kind of like an electronic successor to a clipboard.
