I think you should get an iPad because it is more family-friendly and easier to use. may be more expensive but worth it.

And cannot print directly from iPad?

The Streak is running on Android, so no MS Office either.

Also, not very good reviews either...

well, in that case, for the person who has all the hot electronic gadgets, I'll say wait for the iPad 2.

Anything version 2 is always better than version 1. Dell Streak is version 1.

I've always felt that iPad was too heavy. Looks like version 2 has made it slimer and lighter. Well, Steve Jobs must have sent iPad to the Slimming Salon for a makeover.

While you're at it, might as well get a web enabled printer. You'll need to send your documents to a web address and it gets printed out. Solves your printing requirement problem. Don't worry about MS Office. Word, Excel and even Powerpoint are supported formats through apps.
