I'm a techie/geek and I agree with the person that said the iPad isn't meant to be a full fledged computer or even a network... it's an internet appliance. If you keep that in mind, it really makes a big difference and why it gets the "i" designation instead of being called the Macbook Slate or Macbook Tablet or something. Even though I'm a hardcore tech, I appreciate a simple, device that is reliable and does certain tasks well. I also agree with the person that said full fledged computers are really becoming more niche devices for the majority of the population. Sometimes its the simplicity that makes something so beautiful.
