And late last week, the first hotel said it will offer the device to select clientele for in-room computing.

    I've seen these, for that price do you get an iPad in the wrapper to take home or is it chained to a desk?

    Read the article

    Doesn't the article say if you choose to steal it, they are adding it to your room bill.

    That seems fair to me.

    I read am article on that weeks ago, I didn't recall. I'm sure they add a ridiculous markup if you keep it.

    Could it be any higher than the existing markups found on E-Bay? Perhaps booking a room fore some is in order.
    While they are at it, a few towels and toiletries make it all that more enjoyable once it reaches home. :p
