    Well, I'm sad to announce that my beautiful iPad 2 must go bye bye now. I was really hoping to replace the need of a secondary laptop with it, but sadly, there are to many cons to not having the optical drive, speed and performance of a traditional laptop. I have had several tempting offers to trade for some nice MacBooks out there, but it's hard to say goodbye! Too bad I couldn't afford to just keep all these wonderful toys at my disposal Haha...

    Did you not read the iPad specs over the last year? At least you might make some extra $$ if you sell it fast enough.

    iPad never meant to replace the laptop/desktop !! As the previous poster said you had more than twelve months to educate yourself before buying. I am awaiting my iPad 2 and I will keep my iPad 1 as well for my work. Good luck

    I'm sure you could sell it on eBay for either a profit or at least ur money back since basically nobody has it and is on a 3-4 week backorder on apple

    Maybe you should not post on an iPad lovers forum about not liking your iPad. We all like ours. So just cus you had an issue with yours you don't have to make a post about it.

    Listen he never said he didn't like it in fact he said he thought it was a great device he just liked MacBook more. Which is still an apple product so really i think you are the one throwing the hissy fit.

    I was lucky. I love my iPad 2. I was able to replace my laptop for at least 95% of my usage. If it had a USB port, I'd only need my laptop for video editing.

    Once my Zaggmate arrives I expect my iPad 2 will replace all of my non-work related laptop usage except for reviewing/editing some texts for friends. If one of the Word compatible apps handled change tracking my only use of the laptop would be iTunes and it's connection to the iPad. I can see why it wouldn't do it for some people, though, and it definitely wouldn't replace my work laptop since it would be difficult to write Windows programs on the iPad :)

    That's what I was hoping for as well. I have a great mac laptop already, so I figured the iPad would be a great compliment to it. But, after having it now for a few weeks, I feel another mac would more suit my needs!

    Yeah, any argument has lost credibility and all respect gone. Try not insulting people to make a point.

    I think your title is offensive enough. You are like the fourth person to make some post about not being able to keep the awesome iPad 2 but use a title like IPAD2 sucks (basically). A more efficient title for people who are wondering with the iPad 2 meet their needs is

    Magical but not manageable.

    Then you could go on to write your thoughts or reviews so someone who has/had the same questions could learn from your post.

    Just because you can't afford to keep it doesn't mean you have right to rid it to eternal damnation.

    If you paid more attention, people here have innovated and made all types of mods for the iPad 2.

    Hypershop is even releasing a compatible harddrive with USB and SD ports that connect to the iPad via a camera kit. Everyone could use a little more space. But happy selling. I hope you find what you like. Then you can join macforums.

    I'm curious as to why you need two separate laptops. Besides leaving it in two separate places, what do you do that you need two full-fledged laptops? If I was programming windows code, one would be enough for me.

    Oh well I'm keeping my iPad? I was smart enough to try it before buying an writing a post about taking it back or selling. Idiots shouldn't have one anyway so good luck in your future test lab of gadgets you should use your laptops to read about, view on YouTube, and otherwise gain enough knowledge to fill your little brain with. Long run on sentence over.

    I still think his post was valid. Title a little direct though..lmao. People just getting jumpy every time someone has a negative opinion or experience with the iPad. He even said he liked it. It just didn't meet all his expectations or needs. He wrote his thread post in civil manner. It didn't require people coming in saying u shoulda did this or that or you shoulda known better..lmao gimme a break. That's what provoked his comeback insult based on people basically insulting him. Maybe he didn't know about all the types of workarounds n stuff that can be done with iPad to make more usable for everyday use. People just need to chill out. Seems like "Everyone" is actin up or acting petty up here lately, sheesh..lol. This is the place to gather and share information and opinions. Not to insult one another because you don't agree with them or have the same views as you. He is not the first and certainly won't be the last to comment iPad not meeting up to expectations. That's life. Everyone doesn't like all the same exact things or see things the same way as everyone else.

    Agree. The iPad didn't work out as he hoped it would. He said absolutely nothing wrong in his post. He is returning or selling it. Why should anyone be offended by that?
    Maybe create a worship zone for the overly sensitive here.;)
