    I've been want ing the check one of these out for awhile... It's neat... But without multitasking it's useless.

    I'm at the Mac store right now.... But I'm not going to buy one until the is multitasking ... The virtual keyboard is pretty good except I type like a cross between on iPhone and a real keyboard

    I'm going to keep my iPad mini for now. It actually fits in my pocket, wireless data and voice, a camera and still does just about everything an iPad can do.

    Anyone that buys that is a lemming, or technically challenged. If the UI was better, and it wasn't as expensive, I'd say nicer things. Otherwise it's just a fad. It's "Cool" to be seen with one.

    I played with one the other day and wasnt all that impresses either. I think the ipad in tacoms for nav and entertainment was probably a better set up than most nav systems out there however its taken the dude forever to get the system hooked up right with a bunch of crazy input outputs.

    Overall the ipad is decent sized but i just dont see the real point
