    He ask me this all the time and I don't know how else to convince him.

    What should I tell him?

    If he can't justify it himself, he'll never fully adopt it. He needs to be honest about how it would fit into his life, ask him what he wants to use it for and answer whether it can or can not do it.

    Read the numerous complaint threads and the I have no complaints threads

    Tell him:
    If you can afford it and want it, buy it.
    If you can't afford it and don't want it, don't buy it.

    All I can say is: "It was worth it for me". Wouldn't be without it when travelling now, or indeed just lazing in bed before going to sleep.

    Just let him have a play with yours, and he will soon figure out for him self if he wants one.

    Jeez it's Just a computer. He shouldn't have to rediscover himself in order to get an iPad.

    You got the money? You want something cool? Buy.

    Cant really afford it? Don't get it.

    Ipads all about luxury simple as that

    Seriously... what are you talking about?! It sounds freaky! :D

    No, it's not about luxury. Almost any adult in the developed world could afford it if they wanted to. Suggesting that the reason why you don't want it is because you cannot afford it is just lame.

    $500-800 is a huge difference from $1200-2000...

    Wow, you need to step out of your shell and step in to the real world once in a while. There are plenty of people in the developed world that can't even afford necessities of life let alone portable computers. Lol.

    An iPad in almost every way is an item of luxury. I love my iPad but certainly know that its not a need.

    But again, I stand to my point. If he wants one just get it. Kind of annoying that your friend needs help to see if they want an iPad. It is what it is sucka; a more convenient way of computing in a sense.
