Day 5 of continuous research into what I will be buying myself for the X-mas/B-Day season. Its been decided it will be an iPad. I haven't purchased one yet because I wasn't sure I would need or want another apple product considering my Iphone4 is magical (I say this as a former hater of all things apple. ) A few reasons why I did not want an iPad is because of the USB and additions of memory for the device. At that price i figured it would be mandatory.... and because of that I began my Tablet Research. I don't know who to believe anymore as most reviews seem one sided and very biased.... I keep coming across this idea that some other company is going to kick Apple out of the Tablet making business... the iKiller so to speak. I never wanted a killer of anything apple just a neck and neck competitor. for example..... Zune's were awesome, then Ipods got better... Sony Vaio's were amazing then MacBooks became air-thin. I'm attracted to the marketing plan of the HP Slate 500 or whatever its called now... very Business orientated but I hear its a shadow of the Ipad and its a dream within a dreamworld (Just seen Inception last night. Great Movie.) So here I am... standing on the fence watching the Tablet wars heat up, yet it still seems there is no competition for what the iPad is doing currently and expected to do in 2011.... Which makes me wonder.... wait? or buy now? Third Party accessories seem to solve all the missing bells and whistles. Unlike many others I want my iPad to replace my laptop. I want my iPad to keep me from sitting in front of a PC if possible. I want my iPad to be a media device, work station on the go, and where my Hobbies live. I want to be an iPad Music Producer....i got high hopes. (Cough Cough - Sorry ) I Think I've dragged this welcome as far as humanly possible... I'm a ranter by nature you will see as I post more and more.
