Hi, my name is John and I don't own any Apple technologies. I do have a BB Curve.
I'm was considering to buy a netbook. Now reading again about the iPad and it's capabilities I'm seriously thinking the iPad is maybe a better solution. The 64 GB WiFi only version is quite a bit more expensive than a netbook, but it's way cooler, lighter and I expect a lot easier to operate. My wife (absolute Non-Technical) needs to be able to use it. She likes to read and look at the pictures I've taken with my camera. I've tried a 8" digital frame but it just doesn't cut it.
