Really? My friend said he would've ran it over with this car. I'd just sell it for profit

I would have used it as some frisbee, and tried some wicked stunts with it.
iPad Air!

Or threw it from a building or bridge, and see how far it would go.
iLaunchPad!

Seriously, thats $500 worth of Guinness right there. A waste (if you disregard the fact that they are now internetz famous for the next 10 minutes).

Drop a real cpu in there, a USB port or two and OS X....and then yeah MAYBE it would be a good deal, but as it is, its a underpowered, overhyped, overheating AND overpriced ipod with a pretty but bigger face.

You guys are hopeless. If it can do dam near everything a netbook can plus do some other neat things that only a touch screen can do how is this bad? I would rather watch movies on this then a net book. I would rather read books on this then a net book. I would rather read comic books or surf the web on this then a net book. I would rather play games on this then a net book. Especially that it will have match making, achievements and leader boards now.

I think revision 2 will pwn netbooks.

But the thing is Ipad is priced much higher than a netbook. It's priced the same as a CULV notebook which it can do all the thing Ipad can do and do it much better (well, except for the touchscreen).

I just think it's so mean of you guys to come to the MAC forum of HWC and torture these poor souls who buy this junk hahaha. Isn't it bad enough for them on the rest of these forums? lol

That's not what I said. Please actually read my posts next time you decide to reply to one of them.

A netbook or even a full laptop (which you can get for the price of the iPad) can do everything the iPad can do, along with additional functionality. There are orders of magnitude more programs available for Windows than for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch OS, and they are much more powerful, having been designed with features in mind rather than for simplicity like anything made for the iPad. A netbook also has more versatile hardware, with the ability to connect through ethernet, attach USB devices, connect an external monitor, etc. You don't seriously believe that the iPad is more functional than a fully-fledged computer, do you? If that's the case, then why don't you toss out your desktop and replace that with an iPad too?
