Whenever someone disagrees with an Apple advocate the result is that they are obviously just a blind hater with absolutely no idea why.

This is tiresome.

I know that when I went to university, a USB or floppy drive was key to sharing resources and getting work done, and if you want to be sharing with your classmates, you need to make it easy for them to do so or they just won't share resources with you.
As above, you shouldn't have to worry about being labeled a "hater" just because you pointed out its OBVIOUS defects.

This too, is tiresome.

That's ridiculous.
Yes, especially since by the time you have a keyboard, add on usb adapter, and God-know-what-else-needed to add basic functionality to the device it's going to be hell to carry.

Since when can you argue the "10 inch portability" argument when you've already committed to packing around a full size keyboard for functionality?

With the price tag of the iPad, plus all the price tag of all the accessories you want to buy you could get yourself a decent 15 or 17 inch laptop with integrated usb, keyboard, wireless N, G, and bluetooth.
