You'll regret replacing your MBP with an iPad. My iPad compliments my MBP, but could never replace it. If I had to choose between the two, it would be the MBP.

The only reason to get a 13" MBP is the form factor. Playing a game on a 13" screen just doesn't cut it for me.

Will the lastest ATI Catalyst drivers work within XP on a Intel Mac? I ask because in the past the Mac version of ATI and Nvidia chipsets had a different ROM than the Windows version.

I really think it depends on what the next iBook (MacBook) looks like. The MBP is slimmer and a bit wider than the PB. I don't think the next MBP will be completely redesigned.
