- The world has been crying out for a $500 e-book reader and the chance to read books on an LCD.
- Nobody reads books outdoors, so a screen I can’t read outdoors is perfect.
- Nobody listens to music or has IM running while browsing the web, or edits documents with a web browser open.
- The lack of multi-tasking brings back the joys of the authentic 1984 Macintosh experience.
- Look, if I really want to listen to music while I’m working, I’ll use my iPod.
- No, it doesn’t have a camera. I can use my digital camera for that, and then import the pictures using a USB cable and the USB cable dongle. Nobody uses video chat.
- You don’t understand it, it’s all about convergence.
- It’s not a computer, so it doesn’t matter that it can only run software Apple approves of.
- It’s a computer, so I don’t need to carry my laptop or netbook around.
- I love having a single vendor dictate what I can and can’t do with the hardware I buy.
- Nobody uses Flash. That’s why nobody plays those stupid Facebook games or watches Hulu or uses Flickr.
- Needing dongles for USB, storage and recharging the battery helps keep the initial cost down, as well as giving me more excuses to visit the Apple store each time I lose one.
- Word processing on a glass touch keyboard will be great. Anyway, you can buy the keyboard dock add-on, at which point the iPad will be as good for writing as a $200 netbook with no multi-tasking that you can’t use on your lap.
- Look, nobody wanted an OS X tablet.
