    I liked the MacBook Air with the dotted line and scissors. That's about it.

    The ipad doesn't have a phone so comparing it to a ipod might have worked better. Just saying ;)

    So they (whoever they are) wanted a MacBook Air's (non-touch) screen with everything else (CPU, hard drive, memory, battery etc.) cut out?

    Good luck with that!

    Yeah exactly, the iPad isn't even good enough to be called a big iPhone. Big iPod Touch is as good as it gets..

    It does have 3G coverage, and with applications like Vonage, Skype, and Fring, VOIP calls would be possible.

    That would flat out suck. Snow Leopard is made for a mouse and keyboard as are all of the applications made for it. iPhone OS is made for touching as are all of the applications made for it. Which one is better for a touch screen device?

    If Apple really just did that with the Macbook Air and called it the iPad, I would of bought it.

    You'd also have been paying over $1,500 for a niche product which was twice as thick as what they've released.

    I prefer the concept mockup that I created for a thread before the announcement. I think that I was pretty damn close, especially when it comes to the iPad's specs.

    The only answer to those who want to do multi-conference video calls is this. :p

    No, because you STILL can't multitask which means you can't run ALL 300 cameras at once!

    So beautifully done. Nice to see that IQs haven't fallen as low as George Bush would like them to.
