if you want a highly portable reader and surfing device, I could see getting it.
i would hardly consider the ipad to be highly portable.... highly portable = fits in my pocket... the ipad is definitely NOT portable in my eyes... at least for any man who doesn't carry a purse or man-bag.

I own zero Apple products, but every time I spend an hour sorting out a PC driver conflict I wonder whether the sucker in this game is me.
how true.. i've known many proud DIY'ers make the jump to apple once they had some disposable income... just for that very point you make above... i mean, messing around with drivers and stuff isn't particularly difficult... but at some stage of life, you just can't spare that hour any more.

personally, if i had any work to do that required a tablet type computer, i'd just spend the extra money and get a REAL tablet computer, with a proper processor and OS (ok, the last item is debatable, but this is just my two cents...)

For some reason this thread (from 2010!) popped into my head just now, so I'm necro-posting to bring it back on the radar for the lolz. It's hilarious how much vitriol people were posting here for a product that went on to become so wildly successful and iconic. I'm not a fanboy, but many of these comments are gold in hindsight :lol:
