    OD: Opinion Device

    Why? Well, like any other device, the iPad will fit into people's lives very differently, for example, Technological people will probably not want one as they were reading all of the rumours and were let down, But people like my brother and sister, Really want one because it does everything they want. They had no expectations so they didn't get let down. Personally, I couldn't give a hoot about the lack of Flash and Multitasking, as I would only really use it for education and web browsing. So my point is, it is targeted for different people, different people will buy it, different people will love it, different people will hate it.

    My Guide on who will probably buy an iPad (P.S these are based on my research)


    Technological Person:

    Possibility: 1/5
    Model: 64GB Wifi+3G
    Reason: Because the majority had way to high expectations, just because it's Apple.


    Artist:

    Possibility: 3/5
    Model: 16GB Wifi
    Reason: With the big screen and the Brushes app downloaded for on-the-go work, they could have a nice little set-up.


    Un-Tech Savy Person:

    Possibility: 4/5
    Model: 16GB Wifi
    Reason: Because they had no expectations what so ever, and to tell the truth (though I am a fanboy) it is a very attractive device with some features that work very well.


    Businessman:

    Possibility: 3/5
    Model: 16GB Wifi+3G
    Reason: It will be great for Keynotes, Documents and on-the-go work when traveling without carrying around a netbook or laptop.


    University Student/Teacher:

    Possibility: 4/5
    Model: 32GB Wifi
    Reason: iWork. Uni Students need iWork for any sort of project they have to do. Plus the Note-taking, Web Browsing and Socialising all while in class.

    Apple Fan Boy Person:

    Possibility: 5/5
    Model: Any
    Reason: They don't need one, a reason that is or the iPad for that matter

    So these are my views on who will probably get an iPad and for what reason.

    Totally agree with this, one of the very few sensible posts on the iPad. I think you've got the point that it all depends on YOUR opinion.

    Sure express your view but don't shove it down our throats and go all chuck norris on Apple.

    I'm quite excited about this device aswell, and will definitely get a 32GB 3G.

    I think this guy was very excited aswell!

    Eh, I have no use for it. Definitely won't be getting the first or second generations. Maybe the third.
