    I can see this coming to the school system that I was in. They are trying to go completely digital. The year after I graduated they started the process of getting rid of all the pc's. Now every kid in high school and middle school pays a deposit and they recieve a bottom of the line macbook that is theirs to use during school and take home with them. The students in the lower grades have them to use at school and not take home. They are trying to get all of the textbooks in school and put them on the macbook. My brother loves his macbook for some things. You really cant use it as a personal computer though because most websites and such are blocked.

    On the not of the actual ipad. It cannot be better than a laptop if it is not running OSX. This is just apples attempt to try and get rid of other ereader competition. But with the amount of people that have already dropped the money on the kindle or the sony one etc. Why would they get rid of that and go drop even more money on the Ipad. It seems a little bid odd. I think it looks really cool and would love to try it out just not all everyone expected it to be.

    You aren't required to have the 3g, and as such, you wouldn't have a monthly fee. You CAN have the 3g, so that you can use the internet anywhere, but it is an option.

    And the ones with 3G start a couple hundred more!!! Also for that kind of coin you can get a pretty sweet laptop with TONS more memory! It is a nice addition to the E-Reader market though!

    But to compare to the Kindle, which it is, you wouldn't need the 3g, which means that you don't factor in the extra money to get it.

    i wish they didn't market it like they are which appears to be a computer alternative.

    no this is a multimedia ereader.

    Not a tablet that's missing stuff but a "kindle with a whole lot of extras"

    Three Reasons Why the iPad WILL Kill Amazonís Kindle - Bits Blog - NYTimes.com

    Our droids are safe. Ipad's are for a whole different market.
    I guess you didn't hear the beginning of jobs talking when he stated:

    He wants people to buy this over a netbook.... which unfortunately can do a HECK of alot more then his POS device. Don't sugar coat what he is saying. He somehow thinks this has real possibilities in the tablet world. Sorry to let him know, there are other tablets out there, and they almost all do more this his can.
    Resistance is futile.

    The TC is saying he wished Apple/Jobs would promote it as an e-reader instead of competing with the netbook industry.

    Yes but in his own statement he's saying this is the way apple is doing an ereader, and that's how they should market it. Unfortunately that's not what steve jobs stated in his own conference.

    His own words read from the thread name "Why can't ipad haters see..." and the very next thing written is "... that the ipad is apples way of doing an ereader". That is his statement, he's merely saying afterwards that he wished they would market at one.

    Steve jobs wants this as a netbook replacement, a all around experience from his own words. Yes it does have a few ok things to it, but an ereader is far from what jobs wants this to really end up being. From the conference that i watched, he wants this to replace your netbooks, and look it even has our ereader on it that will soon take off with many books.
    Resistance is futile.

    Let's be frank. The iPad is ridiculous. This is one of the worst products to ever come out of Cupertino.
