The other thing about the iPad that can’t be overstated is that it keeps you focused. You work or engage with one thing at a time. There are no overlapping windows to mess with your mind. Distractions are reduced to a minimum and you can just do what you need to do.

After I picked up my iPad, over 2 years ago, I had the same thought. I even published a post about why I felt the iPad is better than a laptop. While multi-tasking was all the rage, the iPad introduced a way to stay focused on specific items.
It's great to hear the latest iPad has that same feeling of being productive.
