So i'll compile replies into one here.

He's got $600 from saving and working at booster juice

The reason I don't want him to get it is because for $600 nowadays you can find yourself a decent asus laptop that can do everything the iPad can but better. He says "BUT THE IPAD HAZ TOUCHSCREEN!" so I usually comeback and call him a fool.

My parents do not want him to get it despite being huge apple fanatics (since the early 80's me thinks).

(UPDATE) I walked into my room and my brand new atcs 840 has an apple sticker on it...

I think he has a funny sense of retribution

There'd be some swift ass kicking if my brother ever did that. But, let the kid be an idiot. I bought my first MP3 player, an iPod Nano 1st gen 1GB, and had finally realized what a bad (and expensive for me) choice that was.

Fanboys are boring. Use logic when arguing with them and they just go in circles.

Stable? What's stable? I bet my PC crashes a lot less then a lot of the Macs out there.

Well thought out products? How about a user replaceable battery? That's a pretty well thought out feature in my books.

Pointless argument. You can't prove that from either side.

On the iPad? Are you serious? o_O

Think about how that would alter the hardware design my friend. Not a good thing especially when the battery life is pretty damn good on it right now.

My parents would have made my brother buy the case from me.
My parents response, you wreck it you bought it.
He can save up for a hackintosh in a CM ATCS 840

-$200 from his iPad purchase.

THEN DONT SAY THEY ARE STABLE! It's pointless to say they are stable since you can't prove that from either side

Does it require a battery to run? Then yeah, I'm serious. I actually thought about how it would alter the design and it's rather crazy, it would actually turn out to be something kinda like an iPad, only with a removable cover for a battery.

Eh, what? They are stable. The uselessness in your comment was, if you let me point you a few post up, when you said that your computer was more stable than the average Apple computer.

You can't prove than one is more stable than the other in the absolute.

Eh, what again? Maybe I'm just really tired from coding right now and my judgement is impaired by a few beers in the process, but how do you think the 'unibody' design of the case would be affected by a removable battery? Wouldn't it break completely the sole purpose of -that- design? Yes it would.

You can think as much as you want on it but that doesn't add any sense to that argument.
