499 is a great price, thought they'd be more expensive
have an ipod touch and a laptop.... not sure if i need something in between. looks cool though
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.
isn't that how people from boston say ipod?
I don't see a need for this.
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 hate to say it Bert but this is the future. Laptops will soon be obsolete.
I hope they make it with a Cheetoh's-Orange-Finger resistant screen. Otherwise there will be trouble.
I don't need it but I will buy it, good for travels and what not but got to get a new bike aswell, looks like I got to design some more websites quick
Quite a few deal breakers for me.
No multitasking and no flash.

All peripherals will soon be obsolete
yes...the lack of multitasking is a big minus.
i have no desire to read books on anything but physical paper.
its cool sure but. i don't really have any use for this. my iphone and toshiba laptop work in tandem just fine.
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.
but what about the book collection/shelf..
the future looks wack
Shareholders didn't think so
So it's a BIG ipod/iphone with less capabilities?!
Maybe the 3rd/4th generation version may bring something worth buying.
When I here tablet I think art, Could this think use adobe illustrator etc. May be a stupid question but I'm not tech savvy.
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.
I'll pass on the iPad, I'm eagearly waiting the iPud and the iPid.
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...
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.
