Yeah i hear what you're saying mate but for me they're a gimmick at best. i Can see a use like your friend but for me i just don't see what use it could be. I appreciate its not there to replace a laptop but if im out and i need something on me that can access the internet (instant loading or not), read, make notes etc then I'm not going to take my laptop and a tablet its going to be one that can do everything i need it for which is a laptop. Why take two bottles into the shower when you only need one?
Haha and If i own an ipad/tablet within five years then its been given to me by some loon with too much money
Agree on the comment about bringing out version 2 so quickly, its Apple all over though all they want to do is fleece their customers at every opportunity.
