    Did you read what you just wrote?
    Most of those disadvantages are really advantages as far as I'm concerned.
    Always wanted a larger version of the touch since I got my 2g over a year ago.
    And all that you said I have realized this as soon as I learned of this device.

    People are actually going to buy this to replace an Xbox?...a Playstation?....desktop?...22 inch monitor?
    I don't think consumers are stupid. Especially when you can play with it at best buy.
    That is so silly.
    Makes no sense.
    You should at least compare it to same type device such as HP Slate.


    It's an Ipad.

    I am confused not that it has any thing to do with the ipad but what product sells for $2000 that Apple makes costs only $500 in Dell that has the same specifications ??

    I know a few people that just have nothing but negativity for the iPad and have never used it. I just say use it and you'll understand. They read things written by people that haven't used it and think it's crap, then when they are told how great it is they say you're a fanboy...they obviously have their mind made up.

    In 3 years when 75% of net books are replaced with iPads (ahem iPhone) maybe they will get it.

    I think that was the point. A good apple computer will run you a couple grand (my mac pro was over $3000) but people really think a $500 or even $1000 Dell will do the same thing for less and that couldn't be further from the truth.

    My experience has been that their being contrary to what they feel is "The Big Machine" that is Apple. Time is the relative term here...just a matter of time. When the iPad (regardless which version or OS) appears on their job, at their Doctor's office, at the grocery store they frequent...the narcissism within them will die a quick death.

    Their argument will be, & I quote "My problem was the first generation of iPad, I never said it wasn't a good concept". At which time we can turn our iPad phazers to stun...and immobilize them for 3 days. A nice way to give them time to digest the sour grape taste left in their mouths.

    Nod quitely & grin if you understand...

    i find that on some forums there is haters of a product no matter what is beening talked about..one part of the forum is about cars and the so called bug out vehicle..

    for one i do not belive that half the people who own vehicle like that knows how to drive it and two--it more of a show off tryle of vehicle to say look at me when they post there pictures of the vehicle ..

    i posted my little smart car that i own and got the crazy thing about it a death trap that i would be killed in a car crash i also pointed out that you can be killed in other cars along with beening blowen all over the road by large semi trucks ..i have that happened when in a normal sized car and they pass ..and you would have been better off buying a honda civic ..when i pointed out that the honda civic was the most stolen car in the states along with the highest car ins rates the people where telling why did not get a truck for the liveing out in the country ..i explain to them that here in end of may i go home to Az area or on a three month trip down to New Zealand or one year unit to bay area for a job ..

    so my basic reason was good ins my car rate droped from $.175.oo a month to $.88,oo a month for the same full coverage and it was great for the saveing -- good on gas===cheap to fill up in CA.gas prices..---just me in the car with a date here and there ..most times we drive her car because she has a nice car then me when going out nice place to have dinner at in LA. area-- plus it handles great in traffic and easly to park allong with great for trips up and down the cost area for work ..then trips over to northern AZ country to go home and spend time there ..i took it back into one of the pastures to check out a well that on the land when it was raining and the road was muddy as heck and still made back and out without a problem ..

    i just think there are haters of the anything that they can not understand or have ..

    That's why I said, "why some people would spend $2K+ on an Apple when they can spend $500 for what they think is a comparable Dell."

    I know many folks who think there is no difference in a Dell $500 laptop and a $2K Apple Mac Book Pro and we (Apple fans) are stupid for buying such an overpriced device (their assertion, not mine.) My point is, they don't understand the quality (hardware and software) that comes with Apple products.

    I agree totally there is no comparison. It's plain ignorance love try to see them open a 700 mb photo shop file on a $500 laptop pc and edit it rotate it as do many of my customers do on MacBook pros and Macpro's Colin

    A basic Apple laptop can be had for $850. It has more really good software, high quality comonents, and does not come with all the garbage that PC manufacturers put in that you can spend hours trying to remove. The only difference may be the screen size, but I prefer a 13" over a 17" especially when I carry it.
