    i paid 300 for a toshiba nb200c netbook,
    it has 3 usb plugs, (one charges even when the computers off)
    9+ hour battery life,
    awesome keyboard,
    good sound card
    wireless internet
    120 gb hd

    why you would rather get an ipad is beyond me.

    the media that will be available for the ipad is what you want, you dont want the ipad itself

    do you mean that the usb is powered when the pc is off?

    if so that is a fantastic feature, which i never really considered, but its a good idea for those with ipodphones/mp3players/normal phones that need to charge them in remote areas.

    and yer clinton i love winamp, i even still run the "classic" skin. good ol grey and green! i just love the "play directory" feature. i have all my music dumped into my "music" folder. im not interested in media librarys. i just want to shuffle the whole lot. and not many players allow you to do that.

    also i find the progression of laptop size to be fairly amusing, at first they were small, then we got the great idea that having a 19" laptop screen was a great idea, now we are back to small netbooks.

    i guess its simliar to mobile phones,when mobile phones came out they were huge with credit card sim cards, few years ago tiny phones that you couldnt destry were all the rage, now look at the size of the ipodphone or nokia N97, back to huge phones again, that require leather pouches so you dont scratch the precious screen. weird hey.

    but this thread is about ipads.....how funny was those idiots that smashed them up on the day they came out?

    if your interested in extended battery life so you can read something.... just go get the book... THEY ARE FREE FROM LIBRARYS

    some things i think are still best done ol' skool..... i think having an ipad so you can read a book is just a little early, the technology just isnt up to speed with the functionality

    ill wait until i can get a netbook with a touch screen...... that way i get the best of everything.

    on the topic of iTunes failing, you dont need to use it. there are plenty of other programs that can do the same thing for transfering movies/music
    im curruntly using "CopyTrans Control Center"
    how ever you do need iTunes if you are downloading any apps/games that are over 20mb if your not in a WiFi zone

    but yea, iPad looks fair useless, its just like the first gen of iphones. it came out with hardly any features, no bluetooth or even usb ports and the next version will include them and a few extra goodies just so people can upgrade and buy the new one again, and repeat process over and over and over again
    refer to said picture

    I'd be looking at either the Adam PC or the new HP slate PC over anything Apple

    already showing issues with connectivity, over heating, screen flickering, problems restoring from sleep mode.

    an expensive netbook without a keyboard, or a usb plug, or a decent wireless setup, or a flexible operating system, or multi tasking.

    its the impracticality of carrying a laptop, combined with the functionality of a smart phone.

    it cant really replace a notebook as you'll end up carrying it in a bag, what you going to do, stand on a train with it in one hand white you play doodle jump.

    At the moment, it is just whispers and gospel. But with all of the Google apps out there, it would plug into the Google suite perfectly especially since they pretty much already have all their "online books" and stuff being archived every day.

    Also, iPod discussions now split off to an iPod thread in the Gadgets forum since we got a little off topic there...

    Cheers
