All this "disappointment" regarding the iPad stems from market forces. I think it's more a decision to make it less of a full computer (to reap certain nich advantages) because of the fact that there is little hope for a true Mac Tablet to compete with Windows 7 tablets. Think about it, Apple still wants to make money. Why not fill more of an "ultra mobile gadget" need rather than risk being clobbered by highly anticipated Windows 7 super machines (where the business market is a key market here). That being said, will there ever be a Mac Tablet? Maybe, but Apple prolly decided that it would be more feasilble to concentrate resources on a long battery simple gadget for now because of Windows 7.
