I don't understand why Apple is even trying to promote and develop this product. The iPad is NOTHING new. It's just an oversized ipod touch or iphone, as, i'm sure, has already been mentioned before I like apple, have a macbook pro and itouch, but this is just ridiculous. I honestly hope it fails because, really, its pointless. A computer with a digital keyboard just doesn't work. If you can't feel the keys you can't type accurately. beyond that... just get an itouch/iphone. Its much more portable. Further, it doesn't have much processing power, very little HDD space, AND it doesn't run OS X. wtf. My macbook pro (09 year, unibody aluminum, 2.26Ghz, 4gig DDR3, 150g HDD) is pretty damn lightweight (with a little extra with a rubberized hardcase attached to it), and I have a full keyboard and full capabilities with running any os x program (and then some) that i want, with the possibility of using another OS as well. In terms of touch interface, well, the trackpad on the MBP works perfectly, with commands for one, two, three and four fingers. What more do you need? For a budget kind of a deal, yeah, I guess an iPad (lame name, too) would be.. ok... But for that price, I hate to say it, get a cheap netbook or something running that crappy OS that microsoft keeps pushing. I mean, 16Gigs of HDD space, WITH wifi (Why would they even put out a product without that included??), is pushing 600$. Once you get into the practical storage space, you hit the 800$+ mark(That's already pretty much the price of a macbook...).... Money pit, IMO. When it can toast pictures into my bread and make a perfect latté, i'll consider buying one.
