An unbelievably overpriced Apple product. Who would have thought?
calvinl Jan 27, 2010
Personally I think this is the most fairly priced Apple product yet.

Considering the versatility (or lack thereof) of the iPad, it's not worth paying -at least- $500 for one, when you can get a great netbook or laptop for the same price. It might not have a flashy touchscreen interface, but you'll probably be more productive on it.

I agree with calvinl:-)it's worth owning one

Looks cool, but I have to say the whole thing seems kinda useless for the vast majority.

I guess I'm the only one on the planet that is not really impressed by this... I'm actually a little disappointed. It's like a larger version of my IPhone... but it really can't do any more than my Samsung NC10 (netbook) can do? Unless I'm missing something.

It looks cool... but for the price, I can buy a Netbook and an IPhone/Touch. Plus my Netbook can use any 3G usb connection on any network not just AT&T. I'm also wondering if the iPad can run multiple apps or if its like the iphone and can only run one at a time?

The technology looks promising, but I think I'm kind of missing the wow factor.
To me it looks like Apple is rushing things to stay on top of the e-reader industry and compete with the likes of the HP Slate. However, that said, I think in a year or two... this product will be awesome.

Hey is doing something pretty cool though! They wasted NO time (Good job guys!)

Ah, ok... so I'm not the only one on the planet questioning the usefulness of this product:

Have had my iPhone for 2 months and have gotten rid of all other internet access. This will be awesome!!

I'm not a big fan of apple. But I have to say, that's really amazing.

As an E-Reader its great. Otherwise its full of fail.

The Wifi-only version, with 16GB of memory, will cost $499. A 32GB version will be $599, 64 GB will be $699, and with 3G from AT&T it will cost $829 (for the 64GB version).
