It's that simple. All this complaining about how it fails, but honestly the iPad is something I need, and want! I have a 17" laptop that I use for my main computing. In addition I have an iPhone 3GS. Since getting my 3GS I have been using that instead of moving around the house with my laptop cuz it's too clunky. I could buy a smaller laptop but I don't want to because when I do serious work on it I prefer the bigger screen. I often spend up to two hours surfing on my iPhone. The problem is the iPhone is too small. Yeah, it's OK, but if I could get a bigger one HELL YES I would! So the iPad fills my need perfectly. I can already see myself lounging on the sofa with the iPad with a huge smile on my face. Also, travelling with the iPad is going to be amazing for the same reason: the iPhone is too small and my laptop is too big. I cannot wait.
