Better battery life, light-weight, connected device — sounds good, but the virtual keyboard of iPad is a major no-no to most business users, so the idea of having iPad as your main computer has not really become mainstream.

Zagg case/keyboard for iPad 2 is available also for the Finnish keyboard, so I consider giving it a try. But my previous experiences of working with iPad were not only troubled by the virtual keyboard. Also the lack of access to a proper file system makes thing a bit of a hassle. Wonder if someone has managed to fully integrate e.g. Dropbox to your iPad-PC-team workflow?
