Re: The iPad thread! who uses an iPad for sailing?

I'm gonna just upgrade HD on my old General Dynamics Itronix GoBook III...it's slow(Windows 7 doesn't help it much) but it's a sturdy " "bulletproof" military-issue laptop....waterproof, glow-in-dark keyboard, great wi-fi antenna....why not....I wish Ii had the one with built-in gps reciever though...On Ebay these are all fairly cheap these days...couple hundred bucks or so...but they cost you an me and "uncle Sam" $4000 each in 2003 baby...I'd like an ipad someday to be sure but this will be my back-up at least...
