Tablet = Cheaper Portability
The initial experience I have seen on enterprise systems in a business environment (after the cool factor) was associate staff having access in remote office meetings to applications that would usually have kept them tethered to their desk without the expense of additional laptops. Granted the expense between a fully enabled iPad and a cheap laptop is not all that great. But a wi-fi enabled 32GB unit makes sense especially if the employee is using a personal device. And you can't beat the battery life factor. All the laptop guys have to plug-in as soon as they hit the table. The ipads just cruise along.
