It dosen't run what a computer would. A computer runs a more advanced (in a way.) operating system. The ipad also isn't the only thing with a touch screen, there are new laptops emerging with hands on touch like the Dell Studio 17.

It *is* a computer. Without a keyboard, without any external connections. You can't attach an external keyboard, a flash drive, a camera - you use it just the way it comes. IOW, it's like a large smart phone without the phone part.

There are many differences but one advantage of a laptop when compared to the iPad is that you can connect it to any type of printer or camera and several other accessories. You can quickly connect with a USB 2.0 port and start using it. Not to mention that a laptop is much more expandable.
