hackintosh dell mini10 for half the price of the lowest ipad

I just think the iPad is a bit senseless. I think no matter what reason anyone would actually have to buy it, there are or will soon be other options available that would meet those requirements and most likely do it better and cost less.

There are plenty of ebook readers that are much more affordable and would work abolutely fine, no need for an iPad.

The iPod Touch is already a better option for an mp3 player/games device and internet browser than the iPod, and I'd much prefer an iPod Classic 160GB for music than the iPad.

As a computer? There are loads of netbooks available for less than half the price of the iPad and they would work a hell of a lot better as a computer. Even some cheap laptops are less expensive and likely much more powerful than the iPad.

I have read about other tablet devices that are soon to be released, such as one called the Adam or something, that have specs far superior to the iPad.

So no matter what way you look at it, there are far better options available than the iPad for anybody's requirements. People will most likely only buy the iPad because they think they will look cool, but most likely they will just look stupid to anyone who has any sense.

For the money, I'd rather buy a cheap little Atom Laptop IMHO.

Not a chance. It's completely useless. I could easily go out and buy a decent computer or laptop with a lot more capability than the ipad for the same price, and the ipad isn't exactly portable like an iPhone or iPod Touch. The iPad is just a glorified very large iPod Touch...why would you want to buy something like that? It doesn't even support flash.

I think it's needless. "its just a gigantic IPOD Touch". I wouldn't even buy one for 100$, I just prefer a notebook :P

No , its just a gigantic IPOD Touch , plus the web browser has no Flash support.

My gosh.... this is a hot topic :)

I have no use for such a thing. But if I had I would definitely go with a Tegra 2 based design and not with that deprecated, battery-sucking and extremely overpriced iPad (or iCrap as I call it).

Anonymous

I will never buy this. If they sold it as pure hardware so you could put any operating system on then it would be better but even the hardware in it sucks so no way.

Steve Jobs said that it must be the replacement for a netbook. It should be better. But what does it have a netbook does? If I want something at that size, then it must have full USB, Bluetooth, 3G (for a lower price!!!), front camera... All things a netbook does have. Now why should i buy this piece of ****? It looks awesome, but if I want all those functions without usb and so on. Then i would prefer the iPhone.

I can't wait to get one just so I can get reactions from all the haters!

It only makes sence to buy an iPad, if you want to buy a Kindle DX. It's about the same price, offers ebooks(and an ebook store) and also has thousands of other apps to purchase that make it more preferable!

Ofcourse once it's jailbroken then I would definetly recommend over the Kindle because all apps will be free!!! ;)

Nope, I would never buy one.

I think it's not something that you need,maybe if you are working with but otherwise i think it's useless even if it's a good product. Iphone or Macbook, but not Ipad

Anonymous

No because it might be jailbreakable, I mean what is the point of using a unix-like system with no root access? I hope geo hatz can do something, that kid is a genius.

Multitasking no? No flash is a real killer, and the bezel is huge.

It's just a big iphone lol, I want something that has an x86 processor, not an arm processor. The HP pad or w/e looks a lot nicer.

I don't care if it's made by apple, apple's Mac OSX kernel is UNIX, and nextstep and freebsd.

Hence why you see a lot of apps on Linux have a Mac version often.

no merits

No multitasking, too much DRM and its made by apple. Its a no for me

I have an iphone bc it was the best att phone att , and its nice not going to lie (not an apple person) but this is a waste of money, also cant believe # of broken ipads in the 1st month.

Anonymous

I mean really, who would want to buy that thing, it looks like an iphone if it came out in the 80's, I would consider getting it if only it had a real operating system, Apple products are so overpriced just because of the brand :D

HP has one in the works running windows 7, I'd go with that first or a netbook.

I will not buy one but I will try to win one online because I know that there will be contests

I really have not a clue, the company says it might get one, but... for now i don't think so.

Ya'll are all tightwad Windoze wimps. Apple makes the good stuff, you should try it. Mac OS X beats the crap outa Winders SEVEN. woot.

We should all get Ipads. I mean isn't it gerat? Its a Big Iphone that can do just as much as a normal Iphone but much much bulkier with less battery life and best of all...can't make a phone call!!! What else is great about the device? Well if compared to a $400 netbook...it has no video camera and cannot multitask. Buy hey, at least the big screen can be used to play some RTS right? Im sure with the premium 64GB model we can install all the games we want!!! I would also love to look like an idiot playing FPS games by pointing my fingers at the screen in a subway train, in a cab or on the plane. I mean at the cost of $829 there is nothing to compare it to, oh besides the much better Alineware M11x at $799 or a simple netbook and Iphone combo. What am I saying again? Oh yes, get the Ipad because we can all be slaves to Steve Jobs.

No to the I-pad for me.

I'm not the type that has to bring a portable electronic device with me everywhere I go. This doesn't look like it will be any kind of substitute for a desktop computer. Emails and internet stuff can wait until I'm at home.

basically they are going to destroy the book industry, how so? well think of it like music files, once one person has it they can share it with everyone else. This will happen with there new book idea. once one person has it, it will be shared to the rest of the world and boom the book industry will lose even more money...

geting an ipod it's a waste of money

Anonymous

No. I like Apple and the unveiling vid made feel all warm, fuzzy and generally excited about it but that was probably the Steve Jobs aura as he's great at public speaking and apple do have great products.

But...

I have a pc & I have a small, portable laptop.

I have ubuntu & Windows 7

So would the Ipad be life changing for me? No.
Would I be able to do more with an Ipad? No.
Would it be cool to say I own one. Of course!

Though I do really liked the book store, the touch screen, the mini on screen keyboard, the look of the product, the applications and the interface. The product looks great, no denying that. I just don't have a need for an Ipad nor do I have money just to buy something 'because it's cool'.

A Horse is cool but i'd never use it.

Apple is bound to sell loads but i'd rather get an Ipod or Macbook if someone gave me money that I had to spend with Apple.

I rather put the money toward a new Graphics Card.

To me, the ipad along with a lot of apple products are over priced and useless.

I think it is not worth it's money

Anonymous

For 500 us dollar, its simply not worth it,, although the ibook app is very useful but look at the battery life 10 hour only.. who would bring it out man?? Sony ebook reader is 2weeks of battery.. plus the ibook app should come with a feature that dims the back light automatically to further enhance the reading experience as well as increasing battery life.

So hi apple and bye apple. Thanks for no usb port what? cmmon wtf why not even 1 usb how the hell am i supposed to charge my mobile on the go, ah i got it now ..with NOT your device. And im not gonna talk about file transfer from our usb sticks photos videos or from even a hard drive yea yea. And yes no camera woa nice thought apple for your multimedia device jeez. They made a bigger iphone and we all have to give them our money? no no no. Almost forgot it but yea go browse the web with your finger which is cool but no flash support so show plain text some more love from now on if you keep using apple products and not being able to taste more than 60% multimedia features on websites.

Anonymous

I'm definately not, I'm not a fan of Apple products in general. Also on tablets in general: there's no reason to pay the premium for a tablet when you could get the exact same in netbook form for much less.

Oh and Rodney you should take a look at the ICD Ultra, it looks better than the iPad and runs Android. There are also several that'll run windows.

Not worth the money i would have to spend to get one. I'm happy with my tablet pc. Does everything i want it to do.

Yea.. same. If I could pick one up for $250, I'd probably get it just to try out. I might still get one to see what all the hype is about though... not sure..
