What a messed up decision to make. I want one really bad, but at the same time, I don't want one. Let me explain please. I tried one at Best Buy and I almost immediately got out my credit card, but I stopped myself and said... wait... think about what you're doing first. So I started thinking about it. Here are my thoughts... iPad Pros: 1. It's very cool. Everything seemed so seamless and fluid. It's so easy to just tap what you want with your finger instead of using a trackpad and cursor. The trackpad just seems so boring in comparison 2. The build quality and LCD screen are so beautiful. 3. There are a lot of iPhone/iPad specific apps that just aren't available for the computer. Now for the iPad cons: 1. I already have a MacBook Pro, Mac Pro and an iPhone. 2. I know I'm not going to be carrying the iPad around. It's too big to stick it in my pocket and I'm definitely not going to bring it to work with me. 3. It's too big to use as an iPod in my car 4. No file system. This means that if I'm at band practice and we're learning a new song... I can't just send the song to my Dad's computer. I'd need a real computer with a file system to do that. 5. It's not something you're going to want to type on for long periods of time. I can see it getting tiresome like the iPhone. If I spend too much time typing on an iPhone, I eventually just hop on a computer and use a keyboard... it's so much easier than tapping a flat screen. Plus, there's nowhere to rest your fingers on the keys in-between typing. 6. It's a bit awkward to hold in your lap to type with 2 hands and it's a little too big to use it with 1 hand while standing up. You see, I just have this feeling like it's not going to be able to replace my MacBook Pro for portability (they're both just as portable). It's not going to replace my iPhone (I take my iPhone everywhere, but my iPad will stay at home due to it's larger size). It's definitely not a replacement computer. It's like an extension of the computer, but not a replacement. I like being able to do anything on my Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. So while the iPad is really, cool, innovative, easy, well designed and fast, I just don't see myself using it very much if I had one. I am however, very jealous and impressed by it and being the huge Apple geek that I am... I just want one to have one, but I also have to be logical and self-disciplined. I must resist... I must. Oh, and I forgot to add... I never have to wipe off my MacBook Pro screen because I don't have to touch it. That would probably drive me nuts constantly wiping a large screen as opposed to my iPhone screen.
