It is just a big version of the iPhone?

Kinda like the Nintendo DSi XL.

You've got enough stuff.

To get one with wifi and 3G capabilities you will have to fork out over $1000. Not fucking worth it when you have an iPhone and a computer.
The iPad is in between, and is kinda pointless in my opinion.

I used one in QLD and the screen resolution is nice, but other than that it's waste. Almost like buying a PSP again.

Its basically a giant iphone without the call functions. If you already have a computer and/or laptop than I dont see the point in getting one. If you really want one than take sparton's advice and wait a while until they iron out the kinks (and cink cobras!!haha).

The data packages offered for iPads are incredible.

It looks perfect for me.
I was going to buy a new laptop as I fried mine on the weekend (really fucken annoying) but then I thought about what I actually use my pc for.

Internet browsing, YouTube, facebook....

Why would I get a more expensive laptop when I can get something that I will really enjoy?
My iPhone is the best thing I ever purchased.

Only reason I haven't bought one is because I have not seen one in action in person. I have watched at least 50 video reviews now, I am making it worse for myself.

The battery life is amazing, 11 hours with solid use. The best laptops (for battery life (not talking about MacBooks, I know they are awesome)) only give you 2-3 hours with SOLID use.

If I hadn't gotten so used to laptop net surfing then I wouldn't want one so bad.

I really need a good reason not to buy one, at this stage if anyone bar apple stores sold them I would already have one.

An Australian company has released an iPad screen coating that does away with the ridiculous high-gloss mirror finish on the iPad.

Knowing Tom, he most likely already bought one. Once he has his sight on something, he will get it.
I'm much the same. I'm on eBay all the fucking time, buying useless things.

I should have asked the question well before I starte my own research

I have been looking through things thoroughly for over a week (late nights on the Internet an YouTube and I have to use my damn iPhone! (my pc won't work on the net for some reason?))

I can not convince myself not to get one

You should look into fixing your computer so that it works on the internet. It's a good PC.

Yeah, just need an Ethernet card.

Tell me though, could you go back to only having a desktop to access the net?

I need something portable again

I'd be keen to know how it is to type on. Touch type is always quickest but it seems like it would be awkward to type like that on the same surface you are reading - not particularly good ergonomics. Otherwise it seems like a fantastic alternative to a bulky laptop if you are only using it to surf the net. Of course I have no knowledge of the technical aspects of how good the ipad is for that but I trust your thorough research Wink

Why dont u sell the iphone, use that money for an ipad, and then buy a cheap phone lol...

Would u even need the iphone after you buy the ipad? Besides for the phone functions?

Ok, so my monster/junkie/demon may be swayed by rational thought if the next version is going to be better. Will have to investigate on behalf of my inner debt slayer. Smile
