Entertainment media: iPad wins
The iPad has always been a media player, offering both apps to play media files and the iTunes Store to buy more. The Music, Video, and iBooks apps for media consumption provide the controls you need to enjoy your entertainment, whether you purchase it from Apple or bring it into iTunes (although I'm not a fan of the Music app's new cold-steel look). iTunes' ability to organize and manage all your media, not just what you buy from Apple, is a power capability that makes the iPad a great entertainment device.
