I have been considering buying a netbook/laptop for a while, but as soon as rumour started gathering serious pace (and today was first mentioned as a "launch" date), I held off to see what Apple had up their sleeve. As somebody who does a fair bit of blogging, but spends pretty much every daylight hour either at work or commuting to and from work, I am after a device that will let me publish articles and access the net during the day. That includes typing up pieces and using a simple graphics program to edit, crop and or resize images. I was hoping that would be the iPad, but now I'm not so sure. Alot of the features look interesting and all, but for me whilever it is tied down to a bespoke, iPod-Touch-on-steroids OS, It's always going to have limitations. Really stuck with what to go for now. I like the look of the iPad and I think it's got a fair few positive features.. but for the things I need most I just can't shake off the feeling that a Netbook or Laptop would still be better. Bleurgh, part of me still wants one..
