I noticed a lot of people on kotaku and ign complaining about it's price and for some reason co paring it to a netbookdespitethe fact net books cant play games either and have crappy battery life. Just read the comments here to see what I mean: http://ds.ign.com/articles/110/1104955c.html And obviously it ia very competitivericed compared to other tablets and the Mac book air which also does about nothing in terms of final cut, Photoshop, etc. And is also a novelty item without much gaming. But when you compare the iPad and it's functions to the not much more expensive MacBook pro, that also has up to 10 hours battery life, and can play modern games with its grhic chip than I start to question myself. Anyone feel the same and about apples strange pricing arrangements to ita products? The nook also has lots of potential as its half pri e and can probably do eventually all the ipad does except gaming which the ipad currently does bad anyway (almost all its games are iPhone ports or carbon copies).
