I am curious what others who are sitting on the fence over getting an iPad are looking for/want from the iPad before they get one. Here is my short list of must haves that would make me rush out to get one tomorrow (instead of waiting a while since I will get by Christmas at the latest I imagine). 1 - A near lag-free iTunes remote app. I have used the one for the iPod Touch and it isn't bad, but the lag is really a drawback. I am not sure if this can easily be fixed (perhaps if it communicated via bluetooth instead of airport this would solve the problem, which I am not sure if the iPad does). This would make listening to music on my stereo during those times when I didn't want to change CD's or records all the time a great experience. 2 - Access to all media on my computer/network (or at the very least media on my iTunes such as movies, TV shows, etc). Basically an iTunes remote that could also handle video. A bonus would be an Apple TV remote, or an interface similar to Apple TV (big font, simple headings, nothing complex). The second part I don't really expect anytime soon, though I do hope that iTunes/Apple TV heads into a bold direction (as it could if it can start to secure media deals) in the next few years. 3 - Ability to use the iPad as a desktop extension. And not just as extra monitor space, but something that really capitalizes on the touch screen capabilities. Perhaps having it as a permanent expose space (this would be fantastic when you are working on multi-window projects where you are constantly going from one to the other), or a place to put toolbars so you could easily select tools (imagine photo-editing or layout design where you can have all your toolbar buttons handy at the touch of a finger). There could always be something I haven't even thought of that compels me to get an iPad but for the moment those are the things I will be watching out for. Edit: This is not meant to be a 'lets bash the iPad' thread, I think its a great device. But no doubt there are lots of people, like me, who are waiting for that 'something' before they will get it.
