It's crazy to drop $500+ on something to go on the internet with that won't support flash.
Yes, but $400 on FBL electronics is perfectly sane!

ipad is the biggest load of **** i have ever had the pleaseure of seeing succeed i myself am getting the HP slate runs windows 7 Has usb ports and runs flash also has a webcam and wifi PERFECT for calibrating VBAR at the field why would u get an ipad please please give me a good reason so i can see why people are so stupid?


to cool down some of the iPad hype amongst HP employees, and it just happens to have specs and pricing details on the elusive Windows 7 tablet. As we'd heard, the Slate will run $549 in its base configuration, which has a 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor with UMA graphics and an accelerator for 1080p video playback (we're assuming it's a Broadcom Crystal HD chip), 32GB of flash storage and 1GB of non-upgradeable RAM. There's also a $599 version with 64GB of storage, and both models will have a five-hour battery, an SDHC slot, two camera, a USB port, a SIM card slot for the optional 3G modem, and a dock connector for power, audio, and HDMI out. Of course, what this spec list doesn't cover is software, and we still haven't seen much of how HP plans to make Windows 7 on a full slate device with netbook-class internals perform as smoothly or as intuitively as its demo videos. That's not a small challenge, especially since the iPad is out now and setting some pretty high expectations for how this new breed of tablets should work. We've got our fingers crossed -- show us something good, HP.
SO PLEASE WHY THE F*%$ WOULD YOU BUY AN IPAD

Yes, perfectly. However spending $480 on a FBL controller is f'ing insane!

hey
let me first say that i do not own one nor am i going to buy one, i have no need for one...

the iPad is not about doing everything under the sun, but about doing a certain set of tasks very well....probably the best...

email, internet, watching youtube, photos, and possibly reading books (jury is still out)

the power however is not even going to come in the applications that apple includes....but the 3rd party developers are going to blow it out of the water...

as every reviewer has said...you really should not pass judgement on it until you have held one and used it for a couple of minutes (that is all it takes)

our campus bookstore has some demo units that i have played with and have spent a good amount of time playing with it...and it certainly does those certain tasks the best i have seen...

Thanks

biggest waste of money I've ever seen.
and I like Ipods and Iphones for what they are..

Id much rather have the HP myself. and even that is iffy.
to me this formfactor offers nothing I'd need or use.

too big too carry around and too limited in compatability.

why carry this when I can do the same thing on an Iphone? or more on a notebook/laptop with a 3g card?

Yeah, Apple has the ticket in that respect and does very well like that. I have an iPhone. Its the best c phone I have ever had. Its just great.

But, they do limit you somewhat with these portable devices. They have market share now. But, if they don't catch on, that market share will shrink. No doubt about that.

I would be taking a very hard look at HP's Slate before I pick up an iPad. Thats if I was shopping. Not at this time though. This type of portable technology is going to grow dramatically very soon. Competition is a great thing.

How is it the best at using the internet if it doesn't support something much of the internet uses?

Only because the Apple target audience is those who don't know any better when it comes to this kind of technology!

Steve Jobs will is to have the internet revolve around him

Seriously, even Google wasn't on Adobe's bandwagon until recently. The android stuff doesn't run Flash either, or it does and it really sucks.

As for flash games, that's why you have a desktop or a laptop.

The iPad is not another general purpose computer. It's all about the iTunes ecosystem. Apple's audience is all those folks who are tired of di**ing around with windows, virus scanners, and all the BS that is Windows.

Well, that HP slate is very nice. But I already have a laptop. The iPad isn't a laptop and wasn't meant to be one.
