    tonight at dennys i was enjoying a little game playing on the ipad waiting for breakfast to arrive at the table and this guy was sitting across from me and when i put the ipad away and i was eating my breakfast ..

    the gentlemen told that me that ipad was not a real computer and i would do better with a real comuter set up instead of the ipad..

    the thing was i sitting thinking that i am going home and i will not have to deal with guy..

    It all depends on intended application of the computer. The iPad IS a computer, as much as any laptop or desktop.

    Comments like that, I just ignore.

    even the simple 10-key calculator you can get at the dollar store is a computer.

    People who dont understand (or want jealously) mock.

    Probably not jealousy, but the guy is just a dork. Not everyone needs whatever he calls a "computer" with them all the time. I bet he didnt have his laptop "computer" with him at Dennys ;)

    I can't believe people are still doing this. You should have asked the guy how he, and utter stranger, can tell you what your computer needs are.

    Some people are just stupid.

    The only problem I find in this entire thread was that the OP was eating at Denny's :)

    I was going to tell the OP to say "that is OK, Denny's isn't a real restaurant either."

    But seriously, the iPad is probably the perfect entertainment/consumer computer. And ignorance is no excuse if the other guy didn't know that. ;)
