    For $700 (mine) it's a great toy. Expensive because it's not fully practical..sorry.
    Sorry about what? You bought the iPad.

    They will be saying:

    "That's the one that started the giant Tablet onslaught of 2011!"

    Honestly, reading Engadget is dizzying because of the constant flurry of Tablet announcements.

    Just today:

    Cherrypal announces $188 CherryPad America Android tablet -- Engadget

    Augen Android tablet bonanza: Espresso Doppio dual boots Ubuntu, Firma packs magical pen powers -- Engadget

    And yes, the iPad is cheap. My Fujitsu Slate was $2400. My iPad does everything i used my Slate for, but without needing a pen.

    I still miss the pen. For drawing, there is nothing better than a pressure sensitive pen - and I actually used the handwriting recognition quite a bit. The pen also has mouseover/hover and right-click capabilities. I'm managing without it, but I still miss it.

    Because it's not fully practical in my eyes. I still need my pc to get by in life. Others don't see it the same way.

    What they will be saying is:

    "Remember when these things weighed over a pound and you couldn't fold one to put it in your pocket?"

    Err, DOS with 640KB of RAM, because "who could ever need more than 640K of Memory?"

    And yes I know that's not precisely what he said.

    Probably not more than they said about the Apple II 10 years after its' incarnation of the IBM PC for that matter.

    We'lll be saying about the same thing as we do of the first Mac:"How could we deal with so little memory!"

    You guys are all passing by the Touch interface. The first Macs had the first mice to market, now the first iPad has...well Apple has the first unique Touch interface...

    Apple has a way to create user ergonomics, that's what appeals to me. Granted a tablet is nice but even such a slick one as the iPad wouldn't feel good with an OS like Windows. It's the whole package that makes it so appealing.
