    Are iPad's worth the money?

    What do you like/dislike about the iPad? I see the iPad2 is coming on Thursday.

    If you have some extra money, you're better off to buy a Macbook or iMac.

    Angry Birds on a screen that size? Yes. Worth the money.

    Would not buy an iPad because #1. No Flash Capability #2. No SD Card Slot #3. No USB input

    The iPad2 has pushed down prices on the original iPad, which can be had (refurbished models) for as little as $350 on the Apple online store. NONE of Apple's competitors can touch that price for a 10-inch touchpad.

    Re: Are iPad's worth the money?

    As much as i think most apple products are over priced, the iPad is one thing that isn't too bad. If you don't mind the lack of flash support and aren't into downloading a lot of stuff, it's actually not a bad deal. It's odd that a lot of the android tablets are the overpriced ones.

    What does it do better than a laptop? I've never used an ipad before.

    Lol, its supposed to take the place of some things.

    Id rather go the thin and light laptop route though. My 13" asus laptop is so light its comfortable on my lap, and gives a full computing experience with keyboard. If youve got a smartphone youve already got the portable experience, if youve got a laptop youve got the more full featured experience. IMHO the ipad is just a toy that tries to pick a middle ground between the two and does neither end very well.

    If i was going to go the tablet route though, id go with the Xoom. Unlike the ipad which just blew up the iOS interface, its actually been heavily modified to take advantage of the additional screen space (how does apple not have widgets yet!?), and with the way google's been improving so rapidly, android really is the platform of the future. Being the first honeycomb tablet, and its 'flagship' device, i bet it sees a long lifespan of updates.
