I think I have a feeling on what most people will say but it seems like one of these threads is always needed when Apple releases a new product.



* I realize the third option in the poll is missing a word :eek:

I would actually trade my netbooks to someone if they want to buy me one.

Honestly though, my cash flow is tight with my business, so I can not see myself buying one right away as things stand.

However 60 days is a long time and things could be drastically different.

I would say that taking availability of cash to buy one, before the announcement I was like 40/60 for, during the announcement I was like 20/80 for, and since I have thought about it and considered everything I might be able to do with it, I am about 70/30 for getting one.

No, waiting for another similar, but better device, possibly the HP Slate.
Little chance it will be better at what the iPad wil do well.

Who is making the interface for it? HP?

Or will it run some derivative of Windows?

I can't say that I won't buy one, but I really want to see everything that goes on first, and he new apps available.

He means that lame tablet that Baldmer had at CES. It runs Win 7.

Apple is doing right by not just putting OS X on the iPad. Don't get me wrong, I would have loved that. But, it was made for a mouse and cursor, not a touch screen. The HP tablet may be an ok device, but it would be a lot better if MS had released an OS specifically designed for touch. Seems lazy and just thrown together, as far as software.

BTW, I am buying an iPad. It's a COOL device, regardless of the criticism.

No and don't add a poll, it's meaningless anyway. Only the fanboys will post, skewing the results skywards. :rolleyes:
You're right - - the haters haven't posted a single thing about the iPad on the web today!
