I played around with one, but I'll stick with my Nokia N810.

It looks like a nice toy but it doesn't multi task which is what I do on both my laptop and desktop, probably the only handheld device that has been built in 2010 that doesn't take pictures. Plus I would rather get a new electric guitar for 600-700 than another computer.

I don't get what market Apple was aiming for with the iPad. Just as competition for eBook readers? Really oversized Ipod Touch? If it's that big and can't double as a netbook, I don't see the point. And no USB/SD slots, WTH are they thinking.

yup and I was just looking through the Apple Canada forums regarding software adn the one thing that may have redeemed my interest in spending at least 500-600 CDN on it, well, has made me change my mind about wanting it. Microsoft will not be releasing any compatible software for it.

iPad is an electronic appliance for consuming media (including web). It's not a computer replacement. I have one and I'm completely happy with it. I use iBooks and the IMDB app, as well as YouTube and the iTunes University stuff. It's brilliant. But it won't replace my laptop anytime soon.
