    Agreed. What a waste. The small home screen icons make it look empty as well.

    I care what it does. But I agree the border is larger than I imagined.

    iPad = iPod Touch on steroids so far.. not looking too good to me... but we'll see what else it can do.

    The first thing I thought when I got my ipod touch was I wanted one that was bigger. I think it looks good, you guys are just hating.

    I think they missed the boat on this one. Had a chance to be revolutionary but it looks like a giant iPod touch. It'll have its place but it could have been so much more...

    On the bright side....this might mean its pretty cheap and nothing like the $1000 price tag thats been floated about.

    HOW MUCH IS IT!?! Probably too much for what it does.

    Why doesn't Apple just release a 10" MacBook Air?

    The bezel is ridiculous. I would have preferred a Mac Netbook... MUCH more. :/

    Touch iPhone OS is too limiting. I want Snow Leopard, in a netbook footprint.

    I agree.. it's all going to come down to pricing. Call me a hater, but I'm just fine with my MBP & iPhone.

    There has got to be a lot more to this thing because he said it has to be great at what it does. So far I can't see buying this if you already have an iPhone or iPod Touch. What is going to make it different?

    I hope that bezel has some kind of touch sensing capabilities.

    10 hrs of battery life? So if I'm listening to music, playing a video, and reading some books in a day, not going to be enough.

    Kindle and other e-readers are passive no power displays when you are not changing pages.

    It's exactly what I thought it would be, and it sucks exactly like I thought it would. Tablets are retarded and all this hype was such BS. The only reason they invented this thing was to get more of your money. It does nothing your iphone or laptop can't do and I prefer typing on my laptop thanks, but I'll keep my 1000 bucks. :cool:
