My wife got an iPad for Christmas for just the same uses, but because of the prevalence of Flash on some of her "functional" websites (i.e., banking and finance sites) and the lack of support for a real iteration of Roboform, she went with an ultralight notebook - plenty of processing power (i5 Core) and enough drive space (160GB), and it's almost as light as the iPad. Cost about $50 more.

She's a dedicated Windows person, though, and I think that played into the decision.

Got Bejeweled on my iPad.

I was going to suggest a MacBook Air. I love my iPad but for medium-usage keyboarding you want a real keyboard. And the iPad plus the mac bluetooth keyboard weighs the same as the Air 13" and more than the Air 11". And it's almost as cute.
