If you want your Mac to run Revolution R Enterprise, or some of the CUDA/GPU
packages that run best under Linux, then this can of course be done
by running the appropriate OS in an emulator such as Parallels 

Parallels now also has Parallels Mobile for the iPad, which is
basically a screen sharing app. You have a Parellels running on
a remote desktop that you login to from the iPad, and then you
start (for example) Revolution R from your iPad, and you can enter 
commands directly into the R interpreter from the iPad keyboard. 
Before the end of the year you'll also be able to print remotely.

It's still clunky, but it can be done. And it can be done over 3G as
