you'd be surprised. I wasn't sure how I'd like it either but now I'm a fan. it's great for easy web surfing and chill in in front of the tv.

And MUCH easier than all the other tablets that have been around for years.
Ever tried to use a tablet with a pen? It's fucking retarded.

I am left-handed, so pen driven, windows powered tablets are even bigger pain in the ass for me, because the scroll bars are on the wrong side.

iPad on the other hand.... you won't understand until you actually get to use one for longer than 5 minutes.

Are you guys serious? lol I guess its a losing battle against a bunch of apple fans but how on earth could an I pad be easier than a laptop for sitting on a couch surfing the internet?

Keyboard > touch
quicker multitasking
flash

because unlike with a laptop, you can lay down and still use an iPad, you can hold it however you want and it will orient itself to the right direction. Try turning a laptop sideways and try to surf the web then. And what do you need flash for? Seriously the only site I use that requires flash is youtube and thats supported in iOS. Most porn sites are too so you're not missing much on that end either.

It's really just one of those things you won't miss if you don't have one, but don't know how you'd live w/o it once you do.

If iit's not work related, I'll grab the iPad 9/10 times. Plus the scrabble app is worth $600 alone.

the iPad will not have the same resale value like the iPhone. if it was locked because you can make calls with it, different story. i'm guessing a used 1st generation iPad will be resold for half or less the value of it brand new.

You have never used an ipad before, have you? Blindly hating on something is just as bad as blindly loving something.

I use one almost every day at work

It's just my personal preference, Id much rather use a laptop 100% of the time. ofc it has to be a good laptop though.

So you lounge on the couch and surf the internet at work? When i am sitting on the couch and all i want to do is read the forums and websites, there is nothing simpler. Let's not start talking weight and portability. Much of your argument is absolutely based around your personal needs and not the actual application by the average person.

Re-read what you wrote. You weren't expressing personal preference you were showing a general disdain for the use of the product.

You an e-hipster?

Nah no e-hipster, not sure how you got that out of my post. I guess its good if your just browsing, I personally don't like touch screen keyboards and I usually like to respond so I like having a keyboard. I just lay on my back on the couch and have the laptop by my junk.

To answer your first question, yes sometimes. My office runs off a terminal server so I can do everything from home . I have yet to try remote desktop on the ipad but it wasn't that great on my old iphone. Does anyone use remote desktop on their ipad with success?(Honest Question)

I might jump on iPad 2 if I give away my first gen. But I'll most likely wait till iPad 3 for upgrade. We'll see.

I have to add one thing, I wouldn't use the iPad to do actual work. It's more when I get home, sit on the couch and relax. Its so easy to pick the thing up and do casual stuff on it.
