Hmm, to be honest based on those videos I don't like it. $500 US, thats enough for a netbook. It seems to have little privacy, as in, with a netbook you could just close to stop people from seeing it....that video saying it's better then a laptop, you couldn't play the latest games on it (as in, the games you buy from a store, not the games from there apple store thing)
16GB - 60GB HDD well, that is better then what netbooks started of with..... Does it have an earphone jack? I presume it would....

Sure, I would use it if I were given it for free but I wouldn't buy one...since if I had that kind of money I wouldn't be using this 8 year old machine Razz


How would you carry it around? I'd think it'll look abit funny carring round a thin little laptop like carry case Razz

I carry a thin little laptop case anyway for my netbook Laughing

I am saving up for one, and the games from the appstore work with the iPad.

Yeah...but a netbook is still bigger then the iPad Razz

Since you're saving up for one..you can send me your netbook Razz

I don't know why, but for some reason I just do not like these iPads, in anyway....and now my computer fan is annoying me...Sad

The iPad is good, I mean it gives you the size of s standard netbook screen but you can zoom into webpages, images etc...

You can buy iWork like you have on your mac for you spreadsheets, documents and presentations.

It is very cheap at $499, I mean I paid more for an iPhone than that, I think it's aimed at competing with the Amazon kindle which is an ebook reader which costs $489 which I think is really over priced for a machine with one purpose and no touch screen.

The iPad is lightweight to carry around, lighter than any netbook, A lot of people have been complaining that it doesn't have a webcam and I must agree a webcam would be nice for Skype. It's $4.99 for a multi touch screen that big and an accelerometer with wifi and the rest of the new tech in it, what do you expect...

I think that it may not look as nice as I would have hoped and there are a few things missing but overall I think it looks like a nice device. Plus Apple products always look much better in real life than they do on the movies.


My netbook is annoying in everyway, and god Windows 7 takes 23 minutes to RESUME once the lid is opened... You wouldn't want it Laughing

It might be so light you forget you have it so if you leave it behind you won't notice until it is too late Razz
I don't see why it has to be so light weight, people arn't that weak are they? A few years ago when I used to go to my dad's house, I would use his laptop and that was easy to carry, even though it wasn't in a carry case, if i wanted to, I could carry it around anywhere I went...except maybe in water Wink It's not like the iPad will fit in your pant's pocket, so it doesn't have to be light so it won't pull your pants down Razz

It kind of looks like a big iPhone Razz

Apple have had failed products before, but since there isn't really anthing like this, I guess it'll probably succeed...

They have failed projects before, but I doubt this will fail.

The reason for wanting a light machine:

When you have a 5kg bag for your college back with a series of heavy books, folders and lots of other crap you don't want to carry another 2kg for a laptop as well.

You could just not take your laptop Razz

Although, I still do not properly know what the American "college" is, over here "college" is the American "high school" and after that, you go on to university if you wish....is your "college" like a polytech?

w00t, NZ's education is rated at 7th best in the world Laughing
Pffft, they say it's free for people 6-16...I don't know what they consider "free" it's more like "less then it could be" I guess...

Hmm, maybe if we tell Apple the idea, they'll just give you and me two of them for free, one to drop off a cliff and the other to keep because we went through "all the trouble" to throw them off a cliff and video it Razz

Really surely a friend of yours has one?

I mean at least half my class has one and almost the whole class has an iPhone or iPod Touch.
