    It is used for multiple things, including entertainment, so what is wrong with adding external speakers exactly? Not sure what you use your Ipad for, but for the price I think most of us will use it for as many things as we want, that is why we bought them!

    I agree I stream music via apple tv then though 5.1 sound system and get excellent results wifi speakers are just becoming available here and the results are fantastic. In car systems like parrot 9200 provide excellent out put for music movies and games gps and hands free phones
    As for cost if you want the sound quality it comes with a price regardless if you have iPods iPhones or ipads
    Netbooks like most notebooks offer poor sound quality so I don't see the point paying $200 or more for something half decent is worth it if you enjoy your music regardless of what mobile device you own. It is about lifestyle

    To answer your question:

    Sound system: Bose lifestyle 4800 for sound quality. 65" LCD TV
    2 Mac Pro for work
    Iphone 4 to talk
    Ipad: For on the go checking mail, apps and fun, not to anchor it down with key board or speakers.
    That is my application.

    The only gripe I have is with the lack of power at times. i would like a way to boost the sound a bit. I have also thought about a dock speaker system, but I have not seen too many that I like.

    Hmm.. iPad dock ($29.99). Home theater system ($1,200). 3.5mm male/male cable ($6.99). Pandora or iPod (free).

    There you go..

    Altho if my girl got me the Sony media center (just like apple tv) then no more need for iPads tunes.

    At the office however, I'll be using my samsung sound bar with wireless subwoofer mounted to the wall. I never understood the whole ihome speaker stands..

    I bought the iPod dock, logitech s715s. Now I am a bit of an audio nut. You here this all the time, people saying a speaker sounds so great, you'll never believe it and so on....but this logitech set is really quite good. Paid 99 Canadian for mine, has built in nimh rechargeable batteries good for 8 hours and remote. On sale at fs for 129 now.

    The Jambox works well. Bluetooth. Small with a carrying case. Dipole speaker(fires sound out the front and back).

    It can be upgraded via the Internet.

    $199.99.

    Great sound.

    Google it.
