So Apple says magical device at an unbelievable price. Fair enough the price of the iPad itself is a little high but not too bad. The thing is the price of all the things you need to really use it and protect it. I priced various things and haven't bought them yet. The prices I list below are typical and certainly middle of the road and not high end. iPad 16 GB 3G 599 Euro screen protector 29 Euro case 39 Euro bag 49 Euro camera kit 29 Euro a few apps 30 Euro So basically the cost of an iPad for me is 775 Euro for the low end 3G. If you don't already have headphones etc. then you are in for more. Throw in a dock or keyboard or and a few apps and you have just spent as much as a Macbook. I am interested to see how much others have spent so far on theirs. Yes, I know if you can't afford it don't buy one so need for remarks of that sort. I can afford it but just questioning what kind of value for money I actually ended up getting. What did the rest of you guys come up with for a grand total?
