Yes the iPad would sound like a reasonable choice.

- You can of course go on internet with Safari on the iPad, and with iOS 5 that will come out in September, the interface will include many features of Mac OS version (tabs, Reader, etc). Mail is also included, and it is improved in iOS 5. I think the update will be free for iPad 2 users, as Apple said last year that iPad owners would get one upgrade free.
- There is an iMovie version on the iPad. It is of course limited, but you can do some simple editing.
- There is a Windows Live Messenger App available on the App Store.
- The music is of course included as well as the iTunes Store.
- Youtube is also integrated in iOS
- For that, you might indeed need a physical keyboard, you can use the wireless bluetooth one or the dock/keyboard one.
- iChat is not part of iOS, there is FaceTime instead, which can reach both Mac OS and iOS devices.

In addition, with the new iOS feature "PC Free", you can always use your iPad without ever needing to connect it physically to your computer. You can synchronize everything through the Cloud and wireless sync with iTunes.
