    i know that it a not a computer

    tonight at dennys i was enjoying a little game playing on the ipad waiting for breakfast to arrive at the table and this guy was sitting across from me and when i put the ipad away and i was eating my breakfast ..

    the gentlemen told that me that ipad was not a real computer and i would do better with a real comuter set up instead of the ipad..

    the thing was i sitting thinking that i am going home and i will not have to deal with guy..

    It all depends on intended application of the computer. The iPad IS a computer, as much as any laptop or desktop.

    Comments like that, I just ignore.

    even the simple 10-key calculator you can get at the dollar store is a computer.

    People who dont understand (or want jealously) mock.

    Probably not jealousy, but the guy is just a dork. Not everyone needs whatever he calls a "computer" with them all the time. I bet he didnt have his laptop "computer" with him at Dennys

    I can't believe people are still doing this. You should have asked the guy how he, and utter stranger, can tell you what your computer needs are.

    Some people are just stupid.

    I was going to tell the OP to say "that is OK, Denny's isn't a real restaurant either."

    But seriously, the iPad is probably the perfect entertainment/consumer computer. And ignorance is no excuse if the other guy didn't know that.
