Maybe for you in your little cubicle, but here iPad is what we do most of our work on. It's great for field work. We have our GIS software, but we also can do up quick spreadsheets, notes, emails, appointments and it's all in a cloud. No way we could do that on laptops or desktops. It's also great for flights due to long battery life and the touch screen is really good for maps anywhere. City maps aren't fun on an iPhone.
