    I concur with s2mikey, both my son and I have an iPad 2 and he's a professional (pc) techno guy, and I used to be. We still use our pc for a lot of things and it is fun to tweak, but as somebody earlier in this thread stated, the iPad just works. I had an Archos tablet and it died short of two years and I bought an iPad and wished I had done it right first time around. I was thinking about getting an Asus Prime when the Archos died and couldn't get my hands on one. The only viable alternative was the iPad. If someone is concerned they don't have a file manager, well we do, sort of, it's called iTunes, that's our file manager and like everything else on the iPad, it just works. A little differently perhaps, but it's a great machine IMHO.

    There is an app that can act as a file manager for the iPad. It is File Explorer. It can connect easyly on WiFi or FTP with Filezilla client and you can tranfered files and folders from or to iPad or computer.
    This app is so usefull that i have forgotten my envy to change my iPad for an android tablet.

    I never understood why people do this. If you don't like a product then simply don't use it. Use something that suits your needs.
    I just bought an iPad 2 for my wife. She is not tech savvy at all, and has no desire to learn techy stuff, but she wanted a tablet.

    I decided to get her the iPad because it made sense for her.
    I myself have no need for a tablet, but if I did I would probably get an Android, just because I like tinkering and stuff

    I run Linux and BSD on my PC, and always had rooted Android phones, with the latest roms flashed on them.

    The point I'm trying to make, is why waste the time going on some website and bash the product and the people that are using it.
    I would never go to a Windows site and do this, as much as I dislike Windows, just like I would never do it here. It's just childish to say the least.

    Any iPad/iPhone = snapshots
    Nikon = serious pictures

    Apple offers devices that provide convenience and are fairly simple to operate. The vast majority of the population don't want to access the file system on their computer/laptop/mobile device directly and wouldn't know what to do when they did. They want to write and read documents, listen to music, text a friend, send email and play games.

    You can jailbreak it and do more and many people do.

    Although I may not agree with the OP, I do think a better camera would have been a good thing but alas, It no longer matters because I now carry my 7.1 MP camera with me always, and having got a new smart phone, I think I have got it covered. I do disagree with those who say the iPad is too bulky to take photos and if the camare had been able to produce better quality pics I would not be carrying a camera in my satchel all of the time. I love my iPad. It is my constant companion. It is always within my reach.

    Having adapted, I wish you Cheer!

    I bought an iPad, not a camera.

    I have had all generations of iPad. I have used none of them for taking photos. I bought the third generation iPad because I wanted to and I could pass on my iPad 2 to my parents. The resulting Face time capabilities means my parents can see their granddaughter whenever they like, it is truly fantastic (and Skype is just as good I expect )

    If you want 'full' access to your device, an Apple product is not really for you, buy an Android device.

    If you want a device where, you are abstracted from the hardware, that is absolutely intuitive to use, a device that works all the time, never crashes, doesn't suffer from viruses or malware ( because of the restrictions you mention) and is beautifully manufactured, buy an Apple iPad.

    My father, a great engineer, is computer literate and is Windows based. My mother is computer illiterate. She is 75 now, and with only a very basic introduction into the iPad, she was surfing the net, sending and receiving email and Face Timing to her family. Our 4 year old cant wait to use the iPad to call Grandpa and Grandma ( yes thats our 4 year old ) :)
