faintdreams: Apple Logo retro Rainbow Style (Apple Logo Rainbow)

So I waited until most of the web traffic died down a bit before asking these questions:

 - What do you think of the iPad?
 - Who do you think is the target market for it?
 - Will you be getting one?
 - If no why not? If yes what primary use do you see yourself putting it to?
-  If you were involved in initial R&D what would you have changed about the finished product?


Any other thoughts?

I wish I liked the reality of it as much as I like the idea of it - but realistically, either I want my laptop (lots of file storage, everything in one place), or I want my iTouch (reading on the go without schlepping lots of heavy books, useful tracking in a pocket-sized container, etc.)

That said, if I were commuting by some other means than me driving, I think I'd be all over it, because it'd be a much better size for reading on public transit, doing simple things (email, RSS feed reading, etc.) on. But since I'm usually somewhere the laptop works, or somewhere where pocket-size is important....

Love the icon

The harp is a national symbol of my mother's home country, Ireland. She was pregnant with me when she left Belfast. Now back on topic ...

Sometime in the future

... but not anytime soon. I use a PPC Mac for which the maximum operating system it will support is 10.6 (Leopard), which is the minimum required OS for the iPad.

My eMac 1/1.25 GHz (USB 2.0) runs nicely on 10.4 (Tiger) but I'd rather not max out the system resources running Leopard, which is reported to be a real resource hog.

I'm going to wait until I can afford an Intel iMac that ships with 10.6 (Snow Leopard) before considering buying one and will use the iPad for portable computing.
