    499 is a great price, thought they'd be more expensive

    I like it, but I think I'll wait until the 2nd gen (if I get one at all).

    I might actually be in on this one. I need something portable like my iPhone, but more laptop like to blog and get work done on. If not the iPad, I'll probably pick up an Asus EEE PC. I'll just have to compare the numbers.

    HEY....we don't all speak like that!

    and if you're going to be correct about it, the pronunciation here would be "I-pahd"

    I hope they make it with a Cheetoh's-Orange-Finger resistant screen. Otherwise there will be trouble. :oops:

    I used to think that, but I'm a total Kindle convert now. It's just so damn convenient. When eating pho and reading a paperback, I made a total mess. With the kindle, it's a breeze.

    So it's a BIG ipod/iphone with less capabilities?!

    Maybe the 3rd/4th generation version may bring something worth buying.

    A lot of disappointed tech heads left comments to Engadget's 'editorial review' of Apple's new ipad.
    This guy made some interesting points.....

    Also, i'm sure a lot of new features will come into play with the many forthcoming firmware updates. (let alone the apps dev scene)
    I'm very interested in getting one, but as Punkin Donuts said; think i'll wait for the 2nd gen release.

    It's a solution in search of a problem. And admittance that the MacBook Air was a waste of time and money.

    It won't display the web any better than a notebook once the touch pad is on screen, it won't be any better than a similarly priced Netbook.

    Really? I mean, it doesn't sound like the book/kindle would make the difference in the mess so much as the bowl of broth and noodles that fwap the broth all over the place. I n that situation I'd rather get a book all pho'd up than any electrical device.

    I do not agree with this at all...

    Really?!

    I would say that Joe Blow consumers already have a device that they can use to get what they need done (chances are a more capable device). Also these consumers are not going to go out and drop $500 on a new toy...you know who will? Mac fans and us geeks. If the ipad was designed just for the Joe Blows it would be a huge financial disappointment,

    Again really?! Basic computing requires multitasking.

    This sounds like an Apple fanboy trying to cover up for another lackluster product.


    I do think that the ipad has potential and can have a bright future with some much needed improvements (so it can even compete with a basic netbook).

    That is all for now. :lol:
