Uh, a lot of netbooks and CULV can get over 10 hours of battery life. Are you really going to use it for 10 hours without having access to a plug? Again for your use, the iPad is the worst possible choice ever.

If you are intent on getting one, I would wait until these issues bear themselves out with real fixes, or a new revision.
Overheating? iPhone 3GS all over again? Let's all carry a ticking time bomb around! Seriously, when I used it at the Apple Store, it didn't feel hot.
