I am starting a net shop in a remote area that gets lot of backpackers. I am thinking of using an iPad or two with an Apple Bluetooth keyboard. I am thinking I would somehow fix the iPad in place to the desk on some type of stand so there isn't risk of dropping it or damaging it. If people here encountered a net cafe with ipads would anybody use it or is it just a dumb idea? Obviously if the customer has anything special to download or whatever I would have normal computers but for just web browsing or whatever do people think this could work? Maybe the novelty of the iPad would be fun for users that have never played with one? My bandwidth is pretty limited as I am in the third world and have a 128 Kbps connection. This is the standard for net cafes and not unusual for the area.Some cafes have 8 machines on such a connection. I am planning to have 3. I was thinking maybe ipads would be a light solution bandwidth wise. For example if Opera releases an iPad browser in the future it really helps for pathetic connections. I use opera on the iPhone I have for this very reason, pages render in half the time. I am considering Mac minis but the cost here is around $800 plus the display, keyboard mouse etc. A wifi only iPad with BT keyboard is going to be in the range of $700. I am wondering if I could just restore once in awhile to make sure that I have enough free space? I have one iPad already that I can test the waters with but was more or less wondering what other people thought about my idea. Please bear in mind the net speeds and that most customers in my area don't expect more than to be able to surf the net (barely) and check their emails. Please feel free to pick my idea apart as I am just trying to find any pitfalls in my way of thinking here. I don't really want to waste around $100 for the keyboard if there is some reason my idea won't work, that's a lot of money around here. Thanks for your input.
