I am not hating, I just stating my point of view. You do know that the netbook is more useful that the tablet, right? You can actually have word 2007 and powerpoint 2007... plus firefox, safari, itunes, etc... Just saying.
Word and powerpoint - fine, if you need those things. As far as firefox, safari, itunes, etc., the iPad
is far and away a better internet / media device than any cheap standard computer. It's not even comparable. + it's useful for tons of other crap that cheap netbooks would be terribly suited for.
As for the touchpad
, I don't know. It's an unpolished clone without a decent selection of software.
Man this thread is really blowing up. I hope I can get one of these, my girl needs something to read PDFs on since the ereader she stole from me is bad at that and I don't want her to steal my iPad too.
