Uses for an iPad in a house full of tech?

As a person who has a good laptop and an iPhone, what uses for the iPad (2nd Gen, 16 gb) am I overlooking? Differences from this question
under the fold.

I have been surprised with an iPad 2 as a gift. Basically, I want to know how to best take advantage of what the iPad, as a thin little box with a big bright screen and a decent processor, has to offer.
So the above-linked question is great, but I need less app recommendations and more uses
. Stuff like:
- Read comics/books that e-ink readers can't handle.
- Have lots of recipes on hand in the kitchen.
- Browse/read/watch in bed.
Obviously, uses for it will come with app recommendations, so that's great, but I've got the answers as to the best ways to keep notes, watch movies, browse the internet, whatever. I won't be using it for music or podcasts or audiobooks. What I want is to find some uses to differentiate it from the tech I already own.
Last thing: Is the iPad 2 as flimsy as it feels? It'll be coming on the train with me sooner than later; do I need anything heavier to protect it in my bag than the smart cover?
