Submitted by: Luciana247 7 years ago in Tech

As we all know, the iPad goes on sale today, but is it worth it? Will stores even have them in stock?

Apple has really over estimated the number of people who are willing to 500-800 dollars on a jumbo version of something they already own with only a couple features added.

just seems like an expensive toy, as is. no matter how intuitive the touch screen is, the keyboard will never be > the real thing.

well...if you could run photoshop, it would be worth it.

What the hell is the point of this thing? It`s almost as big as a thin laptop, but can`t do squat when compared to a laptop?

""I just don`t like apple products. Not, because they`re lousy but because they have the "you`re not cool unless you own one" aura about them, which is a turn off for me.""

---

see, to me, apple products scream "i`m TRYING to be cool"

[quote] this is ridiculous. i was really expecting and hoping it to be an epic fail [/quote]

It is, these figures are not only weak, they`re also biased.

I`ve said it before and I`ll say it again, I`ll buy it if it goes for $100, cause that`s how much its worth.

"May it Go The Way Of The Newton in record time."

the irony in that statement is that the Newton was actually technologically advanced but they didn`t market it enough...

I held off buying a touchscreen tablet for almost a year waiting for the iPad to come out. The day after it was shown off, I went out and bought an iRiver Story instead.

Coming from a total Apple Fanboy, I have to say the iPad is the most useless piece of crap Apple have ever released. May it Go The Way Of The Newton in record time.

No buy for me, as for no flash, don`t expect it anytime soon. Instead wait until HTML5 is completed and brought into mainstream and Apple announces it for iPad.

I`m with piepig no flash no buy the problem is apple won`t let flash happen because then apple wouldn`t get as many app sales as they currently do that`s really why people buy apps is because there is no flash support I think I`m gonna wait 3-4 months and buy HP`s slate or one could even purchase the archos 9 2 FULL COMPUTER touch only machines

"so the $700 one only has 64 gigs?"

only? take note this thing is mainly for use with books, magazines, and newspapers, even the most lengthy books don`t amass 5mb, most are under 2mb (for example Harry Potter 7 is ~700 pages but about 2mb). sure, newspapers and magazines will increase the size with pictures, but even they hardly ever take up more than 75mb. so thats 650+ magazines or 32,000 literary books.

sure, when you start putting videos and music on there you`ll nibble away at those 64gigs, but even with 64 gigs since it can`t handle 720p you`re looking at 350mb/1hr tv show, or 700mb/movie which is 200 shows or 100 movies...again ridiculous amount of space for a portable wifi capable (meaning sharing files off home computer) computer.

doesn`t mean I`ll get one though, but you have to admire the size.

No flash = No buy.

For me at least. I hate those annoying blue icons.

Everyone says Ipad is crap. But STILL people are buying it. It`s so weird. It`s like those commercial ringtones. I`ve never met anyone in my entire life that was stupid enough to actually buy it, but apparently a lot of people still do. Or maybe I just don`t hang around enough stupid people.

The only aspect of the ipad that I found marginally useful was the ibookstore application because my community doesn`t have the best selection of English reading.

However, once one accounts for the price of the tablet and additional costs per book, ordering paperbacks off of the internet would be way less of a strain on the wallet.

Besides, I`d wager that the product is obsolete before 2015. Apple will present something else to tantalize the consumers in a couple of years and ipad will have it`s unceremonious burial.

Who did they ask for that poll? I think they are aiming towards business owners trying to be "trendy" and "chill"

apple does have really good marketing, but the ipad is a failure. people wanted a tablet computer, not a tablet ipod....i think apple will be in for a huge suprise when they dont see the salest hey are expecting.

Mac fans will love it, some Mac fans will hate it, while those who already hated Mac have another reason to bash it.

Exactly. Apple is not more innovative. Their products are not "easier". Their software is not better designed. All Apple has is the best goddamn marketing ever. And it works.

"The iPad is a breakthough device, just like the iPhone and iPod"

nothing you have mentioned has been "breakthrough" technologically speaking, they`re simply paying to get it out there. tablet PC`s are nothing new, though most of the older ones were laptops who`s screen flipped around for writing. the iPhone isn`t the first touchscreen phone and its not a "smartphone", there are plenty more advanced phones on the market (and have been) again, just not hyped. the iPod wasn`t the first mp3 player either but again, marketing has made it a popular item and made their name synonymous/interchangeable with mp3 player

the one thing the "experts" fail to realize is, there isn`t much of a need for a fragile tablet that can`t do anything more than the mobile phone version. I think the iPad will sell more than the kindle purely because of advertising but I don`t see the sales anywhere close to iPhone sales.

The iPad is perfect for the person who dislikes monthly malware updates, has to reconfigure their video card every ten minutes, or finds that their hard drive has been partitioned and doesn`t know how it happened. In other words, people who want to email, listen to music, have access to the internet, and read books but don`t want the hassle of a PC. (Everyone) The iPad is a breakthough device, just like the iPhone and iPod and it has already inspired a ton of PC clones. The price will surely drop, as all Apple products do, and it will be upgraded. It is a game changer. Remember, people also denigrated the iPod and iPhone when they came out but now they are the standard by which every other device is measured.
