Had no room for your to put your hands if you're typing.

And its just a really big touch-screen.

Why not just buy a laptop?

agreed. I don't see the point. If you love touch screen that much, buy a tablet PC or something

I played around with it today. If you were thinking of buying a kindle or something like that, the ipad definitely seems like a better toy Posted Image
I dont really want either of those though so I wouldn't buy one, but I can definitely see the appeal.

Only a moron would purchase the Ipad.

A netbook is better, has more applications, and SUPPORTS FUCKING FLASH.


Purchasing an Ipad is like purchasing a 400 dollar piece of crap.

Yet again you post nonsense. If I wanted to carry around a netbook all day to read e-books I wouldn't have bought a Kindle. Obviously the iPad meets the needs of a particular market. It doesn't meet your needs? I don't care.

Why don't you wait till the price drops? I can see a $100 price drop in like 3-4 months. Plus by then there will be more reviews and opinions and updates that you can use to help make your decision.

It meets no ones needs. It doesnt support reading e-books. It doesnt support multitasking. It doesnt support 90% of the web. and it hardly has any applications for it.

The only market it ever fits into is the market for Apple obsessed fanboys.

Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader. Download books from their store or load .pdf files directly on to the device itself. The market is huge. It has been Amazon's most profitable venture since it's beginning, hence why Apple is now trying to compete.

From that perspective, the iPad is a glorified e-reader. To say it isn't value for money is ridiculous. On average, let's say it costs $20 to buy a book. 20 books = $400, roughly the price of an iPad. Looking at my bookshelf now, I see at least 300. That's $6,000 worth of books. On the otherhand, I have over 30,000 novels in a pdf format on my hard drive. $600,000 worth of books. A $400 investment on an e-reader is fine.

You could argue that there is no need for an iPad. You could get a simple PDF reader at half price. But that goes against human nature. People want the best and, there is no doubt that the iPad will be the best on the market. I would gladly pay twice as much for the iPad then I did my Kindle. Heck, I can't even browse the internet on my Kindle because of their ridiculous licensing restrictions.

Sure, there are other devices that perform that same functions. If I wanted to lug around a netbook to read the books, I would. However, that's impractical.

Lug around a netbook? Its the same size as an Ipad, and weighs about a pound less, and does a billion more things.


The Ipad cannot be used to read ANY Ebook. It can only read books from the Apple store, and only approved ones. That means that it has to be completely family friendly. No sex. No violence. No rape. None of that. Bad words will get the book banned. The Apple Store is well known for being really reallly realllllly restrictive.
