At Gartner US Symposium, I have done 20 one on one meetings with clients in the first two days. In 18 of the meetings clients used iPads. In only 2 of the meetings clients used laptops. I even used my own iPad to go over some decsion frameworks using the Gartner iPad App (if you are a client and don’t have it you should get it). Its not a scientific survey, but it is very clear laptops will go the way of the old clunky mobile phones. That time may be sooner versus later.
