    Quick question, I did a brief search but couldn't find it, how will an iPad sync to the computer? Will it come with a cable to connect the two or will you need to purchase the camera kit to hook it up via USB? I guess it could connect wirelessly.

    Anyway, does anybody know?

    Thanks.

    That italic cable is all you need.

    I own plenty of ipods, but watching the guided tours I didn't see them connect it to a mac at all but did show connecting a camera to the iPad so I was a little concerned that they weren't allowing these to sync up with a computer.

    Haha, most people are concerned that it can sync with a computer. They want it to be a stand-alone device that you plug things into.

    It comes down to what people already own. I'd much prefer my iMac to be my central device hub rather than the iPad. It does seem a cheap ploy though that it doesn't include a USB and SD slot but I can live without those.

    My pet peeve with it is the lack of front facing camera/ichat and the ability to read Adobe DRM Epub books. Watching the guided tours though I still think I will likely get one. If it had support for those two, I wouldn't even think twice about it though.
