-So now if I travel, there's no need to choose what to bring.

-a tablet sits in my lap and is generally way less obtrusive than any laptop, it has a lower profile than lots of hardcover books in fact. Using a tablet instead of a laptop has done a fair bit for marital harmony.

-it's enough of a computer to do some useful things.

BUT,
-There seems to be lots of effort to turn data into "prisoners of the tablet"

-people are a lot less lax on security once they get a tablet. (Good review of serious security issues, but this is from the Internet Storm Center.)

Comments are interesting.

That's interesting, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I watched a tech-luddite friend of mine show me his new iPad (given to him as a present) and he was very excited about it. I asked him what he thought of it, and his answer was that it was fantastic. He has absolutely no idea about security, antivirus, wifi, copying data, backups, etc. Whilst I did remind him of those issues, clearly, he was so excited that I thought it best to let him discover the issues for himself.

This is always a tough call. I our field, for example, if you belong to a church it is difficult to take on a leadership position in the administration because even a small church has major IT issues with serious security considerations. You can <cough> suggest they look at it, but it's not wise to get into details because, well, you have a job already.
