Okay, I have a serious questions. I am not an apple hater, I own a mbp13 and LOVE IT, slightly overpriced, but LOVE IT. I am having a hard time understanding this ipad pandemic, why do people want them. And, I'm not talking about the rich family that lives is the wealthy neighborhood who bought it for their kids. Or the retired author that wants a portable reading device that can also surf the web, send the occasional email, and maybe watch a video through netflix (idk if the ipad is compatible with netflix). I mean, 15 MILLION in nine months. What are the majority of people doing with these oversized itouches, and I'm not trying to be cynical I seriously DONT UNDERSTAND. Also keep in mind just because it has the capability to do something doesnt mean its the best at it. Example, saying the ipad can be used to write a paper or an email needs to be backed up by why users would PREFER to use the iPad instead of a laptop for that purpose. I dont get why users would prefer the iPad to other devices that have the same capabilities and maybe, imo, easier to use.
