What is the purpose of an iPad?

So. I got an iPad for work. Nice device. Still can't figure out why people would pay $500+ for it.

It is a nice video player - if you don't have access to your laptop/tv.
Cute book reader - book reading app is cool. However, my eyes get tired trying to read on this kind of a screen - and it is quite heavy to hold for long.

So - would you plunk $500 for an iPad? Have you already? Any smart uses for it that I haven't thought of?
