    I can see no benefit to owning a big iTouch. A netbook would be much more useful.

    It sucks.

    Ok in all seriousness what does it really offer? I have a BB for email a few other Nokias and I have a house full of laptops, towers, and servers. Do I really need a device that can't multitask to browse the web? Plus it comes from Apple, I wouldn't use their stuff if you gave it to me. I would donate it to charity

    No interest I want an Iphone but just to play w/the apps, but I have the Itouch, so I guess that's pointless too.

    I said no such thing. I said if someone gave me anything from Apple, I would donate it to charity. I mean it. I have no use for iAnything.

    Ha I think it has potential - just needs to have more storage space, an sd-card reader, and the ability to run multiple apps at one time! I've heard suggestions about making a 'mini osx' - and that I LIKE. I'm hoping that things change for 'iPad gen 2/3' (if they come to be).

    So no, I won't be buying it.

    We are a very Mac family, but the IPad is of no interest. With a BlackBerry and a laptop there are no real occasions when IPad functions are beneficial. Apple will need to do a lot better to attract me and my family to the I-devices.

    a mini osx? you mean just a different os for the ipad or an apple netbook? (both ideas are attractive to me)

    I've seen it suggested in a few other forums that I'm also on. I thought it was a good idea. Basically an Apple Netbook. I mean it would have all of the programs optimized for a lighter processor and the screen, but other than the differences from that it would be very similar to traditional Mac OSX.

    I think I will get one. I don't own an ipod touch and my wife will never let me get near MY iMac. I think it would be nice to surf the net and do other minor stuff on a screen a little bigger than my Storm. When we travel I could take it to pass the time when I am board by watching movies etc. I definitely don't need it but it will be a fun toy.

    dude dont let me run your life or anything...but dude your wife sounds kinda controlling there

    and as for the movies thing, dont believe me 100% but i heard that it has a short movie battery life. and also i know for an almost fact that HD movies arent playable...or maybe they are, just not hd

    ipad my bad. the worst thing apple could have thought of. how is this a revolutionary device anyway. it doesn't even match up really well with the netbooks on the market today.

    This is what I originally thought it was going to be, a small computer/netbook. What it has become is disappointing and interesting at the same time. I'm a Mac guy, but I got my BB instead of an iPhone purposely. With the thought of it becoming a netbook, you should just listen to what Jobs had to say during the keynote--he thinks they suck, so there ain't much of a chance of that happening. I was disappointed it isn't a computer, but interested since I was thinking of investing in an iPod touch at some point, and this would be better for what I was looking to do with it. But all that said, the lack of multi-tasking is a deal breaker. I mean, come on, the iPhone can do it now, which is one of the main reasons I went BB--it couldn't then. How do you make a new device and then cripple it like that? Makes no sense to me, I'll be waiting for 2/3 generations to see what comes in the future.

    I have an iPod Touch and a MacBook Pro. I have no need for an iPad. It isn't practical for me.
