iPad and MacBook Air. Both have their place, the MBA is so good, I use it most of the time, the iPad for cruising the web, stalker book and rib.net app on the sofa.

Love the iPad although I wish I'd waited a couple of months to get the new Air model

Just got a great wee toy to go along with it - the EasyAcc wifi/USB/SD card reader which also acts as a backup battery device for phones and tablets. Amazon currently doing them for only £35

I don't know for certain if the Note 3's screen is better but I just bought one so I'm willing to believe it is; after all, conjecture is kind of evidence innit? One thing's for certain, the camera on the Note 3 is better than a GoPro Hero 3 Black. It shoots 4K at 30fps c.f. 15fps on the GoPro.

Hmmmmm, interesting, hadn't really considered this but where does a tablet begin and a phone end? The Note 3 is a tad big for me to lug around in my pocket to be honest so don't really want a bigger phone!

Looks like I'll keep the iPhone 4s for now and get an iPad Air.

The missus can then have the office!
