My Macbook Air
Given the choice of having only one connected device, my Macbook would win every time.  It is my do everything, anywhere go-to companion.  I can run Windows or Mac, make and receive phone/video calls, work or play, watch TV — just about anything.  It may not be as portable as my iPad but it is portable enough to conveniently take wherever and whenever I need it.
