    I was watching the Apple's introduction video on how iPad 2 will revolutionize your world (again), and how the iPad 2 is the most light-weight and greatest device out there.

    But then...

    The video came to an end:

    Yep, iPad is still a secondary viewing device and not yet a total computer replacement. And those fancy apple apps cost money.

    Regardless, it's still quite revolutionary and I'm loving mine!

    It's good for me for those times when I'm not downloading something and I don't feel like turning on my laptop.

    Yeah but 5 bucks for garage band and iMovie respectively, Is well worth the price I would pay 20 for each that's how good they are. And the rest I believe are expected? Was this your first iOS device.

    Yeah, as Apple grows in market share, they are getting a bit legal from time to time. Still, the user experience is second to none.

    ...LOL, and people think it's marketing - nope, it's the overall experience!

    Considering fancy playstation apps cost more than $50 plus nintendo around the same and oh xbpx and windows apps lots more so paying between $2 and $6 dollars for paid apps for ipad is chicken feed plus free apps that satisfy most users

    Funny thing is it replaced my laptop for 8 months now waiting for ipad2

    It may replace a laptop, but you're still going to need some kind of other computer. Otherwise you won't be able to activate your iPad 2.

    I love iOS autocorrect. This forum will remain comical just for that alone. That and iPad keyboard misstypes.

    GlenL, its a oint I've made in the past, that we may be moving to a more terminal like home setup. Once centrel media server and a host of satellite devices that push and pull data from it. The iPad is one such. It is a self-operating terminal, meaning it can function when not attached to "data server" using local content but it is at full ability when a connection is there. Which reminds me i need to go pull a video off YouTube for a teacher. Were blocked at the distrinict level from all that good (and bad) content. Very annoying.

    VPNs are fun.
