How well does the ipad 2 work for forums like this one please?

I think i'd want to use it for general web browsing and pottering around here, making ADRs and so on.

Does it work well for all that or is the lack of keyboard annoying?

I use mine all the time for quick browsing and updating when I'm not at my main computer. :thumbsup:

The keyboard is useable although I'll admit I do prefer a real keyboard. Of course, if the keyboard issue really bothered me I could get an external bluetooth keyboard for it. But so far, it hasn't been that much of an issue and I've had my iPad since the day they came out.

Well I think in the time I've had it (one day before official launch in UK) I've probably had 3 days when I didn't use it. I was worried when I first bought it that it was a lot of money and I wouldn't use it. I do all my recreational surfing on it and also writing short letters, play games, read books and magazines. Make lists and updating calendars that are shared with family members.
