TAMPA, FL - Laptop or iPad? I'm receiving many requests from Ways 2 Save viewers in need of a PC wondering if the iPad is the way to go.

Many of the people who've contacted me are also under the impression that an iPad costs less than a fully-functional laptop. That's certainly not the case.

From what I gather, those of you contemplating an iPad to replace a laptop are considering the $399 iPad 2 or the new retina iPad that starts at $499. (I've ruled out the iPad Mini since it's too small to replace a PC).

For less than the price of the new retina iPad and the same price as the iPad 2, you can also buy a fully-loaded laptop.

If weight is not a factor (and yes, you can't beat the form factor of an iPad), I've nailed down a coupon to knock a fully-loaded Dell laptop with 6 GB of RAM, a 500GB Hard Drive, 15.6" LED Display and a 2nd Generation Intel i3 Processor. You cannot buy a tablet anywhere that compares to this type of computing power and for those of you stuck on that $399 price point, this is something else to consider:

Was: $628

Now: $399
