no jailbreak = no mouse.
Well technically it does work...if you jailbreak.
More than likely tho he had no clue what he was talking about and just telling you what you wanted to hear to make a sale....they tend to do that....salespeople.
I understand the frustration but if one needs/wants a keyboard, a mouse, and the touch screen is an issue then it seems to me the 13" MBP or MB is the proper solution. My two cents.
What if you want a keyboard, mouse and a computer that is instant on? It's still a valid desire. A mouse would be much faster for selecting and placing a cursor. I've had the iPad since it came out (in Canada) and use it every day, but it still takes me more time to select text or make a correction than if I were using a mouse.
I guess I don't get the constant references to "instant on" with the Ipad. With any decently modern system waking up from sleep to fully functional is a matter of a couple of seconds. That is about the same time it takes me to power on my Ipad and unlock it.
The new MBA is ridiculously fast! Its comes up faster than the iPad, runs apps like they are nothing (in some cases faster than my mac pro!!) and is as thin as the iPad!! Battery life isn't nearly as miraculous tho! So, I'll be sticking with the iPad until the MacPad comes out
One of my favorite things about the Ipad is it frees me from the mouse. It seems some folks are trying to turn it into a PC.
No they are not. They are most likely using it with a bluetooth or dock keyboard, as it is designed to do... And likely only at times--not always. Using a keyboard at times does not equate to wanting a laptop instead. And during those times a mouse makes perfect sense. I don't want to use clamshell device in place of my iPad, where I must have the keyboard around 100% of the time.
