    Semi tempting, but I think for functional portability my Thinkpad x61 will still suffice.

    Yes I am getting one, perfect for reading my ebooks, my net book just ain't cutting it....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    It remains to be seen how good ebook reading will be on the Ipad.
    It's not E-ink technology so there might be eyestrain issues as opposed to
    a dedicated book reader.

    I understand the fact you can store hundreds of books on the ipad, but why don't people just read, well, books. You can only read one at a time anyway. And if you drop or sit on it, it doesn't break (and it's not as costly even if it does). Movies and the like on the ipad, fine. But e-books? I don't get it.

    Well I like to juggle my reading, right now I am reading a Phillip K. Dick story, Wild Ducks Flying Backwards by Tom Robbins, The Collected Works of Federico Garcia Lorca and Pablo Neruda, plus reading Dostoevsky's The Possessed; plus I like to go back and reference parts of other books I've read, having them in electronic form saves space in my already crowded bookshelves.....

    That does make it sound kinda gagagay. Then again, for $500 entry from Apple how much did you expect?

    I've owned some Apple products and enjoyed them (still got the iPod Classic) but you do pay for the logo and design.

    Exactly.

    This thing was totally rushed and it appears as if Jobs, based on the name and the logo alone, is trying to rob the American public of their hard earned cash while the Isuck craze begins to dwindle.

    As Min0 said, the Android will surpass the Iphone.

    As I said, the Ipad sucks and I can do far more on my netbook that happens to be smaller.

    Also, while Ipods still have a market as nothing has really challenged it, I pretty much exclusively use my portable hard drive for music and my ipod shuffle for working out, making my classic all but useless.

    Death to Apple.

    I will say though, I have the Iphone because I got it for free through my mothers work and its the best phone I've ever had.

    Not saying much considering I had one of those shitty nokia ones and a Razr, which also sucked the hairy root.
