    You are asking Apple to make the iPad into a very thin laptop, why? There are already plenty of laptops out there that have the features you want, go buy one of those.

    Think about it, we've got to spend $830 now for the 64GB 3G iPad. Can you imagine how much a 1TB, thinner, faster, customizable, stronger iPad would cost? Ummmm, $3k? I'm not spending that, no way in hell.

    well, there are some ppl who have money lying around, and if apple had an pad that had 3TB a 40 hour battery you better believe I would spend the extra money..

    heck, 5 yrs ago i spent 3000 for an IBM LT that I consider a dinosaur now..

    why are you ppl defending the lack of storage on the ipad?

    lets face it 64 gb doesnt cut it if you have million of movies/songs / apps..

    the more space the better, everytime someone mentions more space would be more attractive you cut down the person accusing him of making it laptop..

    todays generation is the media generation that has tons of music, movies or whaever, iaudio,apps..

    storage storage storage.. you cant say you wouldnt want to store all your films and music on your ipad...

    its funny tho, my brother paid 1300 bucks for a 6 gig harddrive some 20 yrs ago, now you can get a TB for like 50 bucks.. As Apple learns to make those flash drives or whatver they use in ipad, when they learn to make them w/ more storage the ipad will increase in sales becuz ppl love storage..

    If the Gen 2 iPad had a 3TB hard drive and a battery that last 30-40 hrs what would they release for Gen 3, Gen 4 etc...... Its marketing my friend. The computer/electronics industry has been like this since the beginning.

    For one: Apple will NEVER make an iPad with a removable battery. We're in the 4th iteration of the iPhone and there's still no removable battery. The first iPod didn't even have a removable battery, so it seems Apple is doing away with removable batteries for mobile devices altogether. Also, from a technical and design standpoint, having a non removable battery allows for better housing design of the device as a whole. It allows for a bigger battery to fit in the limited amount of space, thus increasing battery life. If Apple needed to design the housing for a removable battery, they would need to make a smaller battery to fit the design (and have less battery life) or make a bigger device for a bigger battery to get the same performance in battery life. Neither of these approaches fits Apple's design specs.

    Also, the idea of having a 1TB SSD in the iPad by next generation launch, although that would happen in a perfect world, it's quite laughable by today's standards. Manufacturers have hardly begun making 1TB SSD's for desktops and a 3.5 inch 1TB SSD will cost over $2000 today, and the idea that BOTH the technology AND the form factor AND the price will all allow for an iPad to be equipped with a terabyte of solid-state storage and have the device as a whole still cost around $500-$600 is just not possible. I applaud you for your strong imagination though.

    The iPad is not meant to be your ultimate library of a million songs/movies/etc. It's meant to be a portable unit where you use your laptop/desktop as your home base and switch out stuff.

    People don't want to pay thousands for a 3TB solid state drive, thinner than now size, replaceable battery device. That's for a smaller niche market...perhaps you are one of them. The majority (like the 3 million people who have an iPad now) are not. They wanted a somewhat affordable portable device that is bigger than a Smartphone, but smaller than a laptop...with similar functionality to a laptop.

    Of course, more space would be better, but the presence of cloud storage and streaming media requires less local storage needs. Companies with deep pockets are willing to provide that for us for free or for minimal fees.

    Oh and Apple doesn't make drives. They buy them from other companies. And I believe the biggest solid state drive that exists is only 1TB and that is probably used in only industry or research because they are prohibitively expensive. Those companies/researchers have a long way to go before being able to provide larger solid state drives that are affordable...let alone affordable to Apple who is way down on the food chain.

    Seeing how apple owns the "iSlate" trademark I am under the impression that it will become the iPad's big brother with much more power that will allow it to run a scaled down version of OS X instead of a smartphone OS.

    We should get more RAM and Storage as SSD technology drops as well.

    So if you can criticize the iPad and not be a troll, how come we can't like the iPad and not be fanboys? Trolls always set this double-standard. And if you don't want to be considered a troll, how about posting something other than criticisms? Trolls are infamous for not changing their minds and not changing the subject, and you don't seem to have anything else to say.

    I won't address your suggested improvements to the iPad, as they're nonsense.

    Well, hopefully in the future they will make diff. Versions, like you pay more you get bigger storage , longer battery life. I'd pay more for an ipad that has a battery that last 40 hours , then no need for it to be removable..

    They should have like 500 dollar version, like they do now, but they should also have 3000 dollar versions that have massive storage and longer battery life, I know a lot of ppl that would pay more for a better iPad..

    Trust me , apple has just scratched the surface with the iPad, 5 years you will laugh at the tech specs of the iPad today..

    I seen the future...
