    I was browsing the interwebz and came upon a funny flowchart:

    Please take the flow chart only as entertainment. I don't want a flame war started.

    If you are seriously going to follow the flow chart, don't spend 500$ on a laptop. You'll be better off with the iPad. If you need a laptop spend at least 1000

    I would like a laptop (MacBook Pro, actually, but same thing

    ), but can't spend the money on it.
    I'm going to buy one when I go into college.

    At first, and pretty much up until now, I never thought an iPad would be useful.
    I'm starting to want one for reading things.
    More and more I find myself reading the news, which I feel the iPad would be awesome for.

    I'd have to get rid of my 2G iPod touch if I do, first (I have an iPhone)

    No, no you shouldn't. Except if you're rich. In which case of course you should buy two. lol


    If you wanna buy it for reading, there are much better alternatives. e-Ink, Pixel Qi... LCDs just don't cut it. iPod touch, iPhone, OF COURSE YOU NEED AN IPAD (sarcasm).

    Oh, and MacBooks get warm from watching Youtube videos. Ha ha ha. Youtube !

    Dude, if you don't like the iPad, then why come onto a forum dedicated to it? I really don't get you...

    Because it amuses me ? I own an iPod touch, for a while I thought it was the sh*t and now this thing is just a more expensive, bigger wannabe clone. I don't think it sucks (completely). I just think it's the most unoriginal piece of... concept around. Speaking of concepts, with all those fake pictures posted eveywhere you'd think Apple would notice. If Apple would've removed (or at least simulated) the home button and overcame the thin bezel "issue" it would've blown the competition out of the water and I would've bought it right on the day of it's release. But I guess it's just a business model. "WHAT ELSE are we going to put in NEXT YEAR (to milk the consumer for money by getting him to upgrade) ?" Should I be fine with the mentality of feeding the consumer little by little slightly outdated hardware for larger profit ? Do I have a choice ?? Yes ! Not buy their frigging products ! Not the first generation anyway. At least that's what I think.

    For those of us who use and love the touch, want a bigger screen, enjoy the rock solid OS and surf the web for fun, it is the perfect solution.

    I'm not rich but i can see me buying 3 or 4 for the kids and wife to use while watching TV.

    The web is for fun and entertainment. The iPad will make it better.

    Personally I'm getting sick of people b*tching that the iPad is expensive when HP's Slate costs $40 more. Who know's how much the Notion Ink will cost.

    Am I rich? No. Do I have other means of getting it? Yes.

    Perhaps even 6 or 8. Fun and entertainment without Flash ? Yes, the iPad will definitely make the internet better. Just like buying new covers for the car seats will prevent millions of car crashes all over the world.


    PS: Notion Ink's Adam was already priced at $320. And it's a true gem.

    I'm sorry, but that made absolutely no sense at all.

    You don't need Flash to have fun, if that's what you're arguing against.
