    Anyone else.. just ... Meh.. about this whole thing?

    For the longest time I wanted an iPad.. Well yesterday was the first time I got one, and I was immediately bored.. Same old look, just a bigger screen..

    I like the screen realestate and the extra power that make apps like Inkpad, Logmein Ignition, etc etc much better to use.. but its all just..


    Hopefully the iPad 2 changes that, because.. iPad just isnt that great.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    iPad 2 is the same as the first iPad, just a bit faster...

    I've read your other post and I don't understand why do you continue to try to validate owning an iPad when it clearly doesn't fit your needs? If your bored with it or don't find it exciting, then why do you want to own one?

    Since I bought my iPad last April I have used it every single day for many thing and not once did I ever second guess my purchase, I know the iPad is a product that I want to own and will continue to find more uses with iPad 2.

    you'll get more positive feedback if you post this in Android forums :D.. all jokes aside.. No I dont feel the same way. I like the same old look. So personal preference there. Bigger screen than my iPhone 4 is better when browsing the internutz!.. most of all, I love seeing my 2 yr old daughter using an iPad and watching Mickey Mouse. :D..

    Sorry if iPad didnt meet your expectations. May I suggest try Xoom perhaps? or netbook? Good luck.

    If you don't like the first one then I don't see how the second model is going to be for you. Why don't you just buy a zune?

    Your right. I guess im just trying to force myself to find justification.. The iPad is great, it just isnt for me, and for some reason, I cant accept that..

    I will be trying the iPad 2, but my expectations are beyond low.

    If you're intent on buying a tablet knowing that you're going to hate it, definitely get a Xoom. ;)

    Agreed. Good grief, OP, it is an iPad, just a piece of computer equipment. Why are you obsessing over something that clearly doesn't meet your expectations or wants.

    But my guess is that you will buy one anyway. Spend endless amounts of time here complaining about every little thing that you hate about it. And finally in a post of righteousness triumphally proclaim that you tried to keep it but just couldn't.:p

    I'm kind of with you. I don't have one and will be the first one in line to buy one at retail when the iPad has a higher resolution display. As it stands I feel like looking at the iPad screen is like looking through a screen door.

    All that said I'm going to try to pick up an iPad 1 on the cheap to hold me over until what I really want is a possibility.

    I don't get it:confused: You don't think it's for you and for some reason you can't accept it. I think you have some self searching to do.

    The iPad or any tablet may be not for you at all so stick to your laptop or desktop.

    100% agree! Everytime I see an iPad screen, it's like looking in through a screen door..... A really nice, crisp, sharp, beautiful screen door, with vibrant colors and perfect brightness. I can't stand it! I'll have to wait for the ipad3 for the resolution to be at least 2x as small!
