    I think this poll is useless, I think we all are interested to see at-least what it is, and what it can do? Now are we interested in purchasing it? Only Steve knows!

    What about a tablet with a slide-out keyboard? On a phone, it doesn't work unless you have smurf fingers, (the iPhone is excused in the name of design and compactness,) but a larger tablet...

    On second thought, what about a MacBook Touch with a slide-IN keyboard?

    Yeah, and I was also interested in it eight years ago.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    I want one, and yes, I wanted one years ago, too. I don't want one as a primary computer, though. I love the pocket size of my Palm, but it would be nice to have something bigger, but not as big as a laptop.

    I'd buy one!

    Combine with a digitizing pen and the natural-media Painter X and you'd have a wonderful combination.

    Not sure. Really depends on what it is and if its worth replacing my MBP for.

    It doesn't sound like a bad idea but I couldn't see myself needing anything like that. Throw a few commericals at me when / if it's released, and ask me again :eek:

    I say 'not sure'. The iPhone is perfect, as for a tablet I sure hope it's unique and w/o a real keyboard like tablet PCs do.

    I voted "not sure" because I can image an iTablet product that I would really want, but in reality I bet it won't turn out that way. If they made an all-screen computing device that was no bigger than a yellow note pad in all 3 dimensions, had at least 80 GB of storage (via an ipod classic sized drive), and cost $600, then I'd have to wipe the drool off my face. But especially on the price I bet it'll be way more than I consider drool worthy. If the same device I just described costs $1000 or more, which is most probable, then I'm not at all interested.

    As with pretty much everything, it will depend on many factors. ;) I am definitely interested though...

    I would be interested in seeing it first. It might be something I would buy.

    Of course.

    Ever watch Stargate Atlantis?
    It would be sweet to carry a tablet around always tapping on it to save the world!

    I'm not interested in a Mac Tablet... my iPod touch serves as a perfectly good tablet.

    I would be interested. I would be one of the people to preorder it the moment the Apple Store is back online after the event announcing it :D

    The question shouldn't be "Are you interested...", it should be "Would you buy..."

    Interest is not going to keep Apple's books ticking over!

    Personally I'd be interested but definitely wouldn't buy :)
