    Has anyone seen this thing? I watched a video on the apple site, it looked pretty sick and it's only like $499.

    Give them a year or two and your macbook pro will look like this and have the speed, power and stability of MBp.
    This is the future and apple just kicked amazon and sony in the balls.
    Who in their right mind will even buy kindle any more?
    I hope you bought some ipad domains.
    I know I did. ;)

    No offence but Apple created another "glorified" product touched by God (aka mr. Steve) that will make all the Apple fans jeez in their pants.

    After a brief look the specs on this thing it blows. Why would you want a board with a Mac on it to read some ebook when you could have a full-fledged touch screen laptop at your disposal which could do the same thing?

    I would like to sit at a coffee shop and play some cool games with my fingers on Windows 7 than shoving that ugly board around.

    /rant off LOL.

    It looks badass.

    Ignore the Apple haters, they're just jealous.

    Oversized Iphone. Too expensive for the gadget that actually is. But that's common in apple stuff. simply too expensive, too lustfull, and everyone buys it. I think Jobs is a mass hipnotizer or something

    I read a little about this and I love Apple stuff in general, but the $499 pricetag has the panties puddled. That means it'll be super cheap in a coupla years. Hell yeah I'd take one :D I'll concur that it does sound better than a Kindle. Looks better too.

    these guys are steps ahead of the game.

    the are marketing geniuses and they know what there doing.

    They leave features out on purpose so they can add them one by one the year after and get the dumb buyers who will sleep outside best buy to get one, sleep outside the next year when ipad 2gs gold edition comes out. free effective advertising (hype). Theyll purposely hold back on orders to create enormous buzz then flood the market xmas time winning the hottest xmas item of the year. apple has created a lifestyle and once again there first to market with a product everyone has already started biting.

    Students wont need textbooks. they can just carry the ipad around and download the textbook to it. this is a gold mind. i bought freeappleipadoffer.com by the way.

    whoever thinks this is wack lacks creativity.

    It's relatively inexpensive @ $499. I think it's pretty sick. I'd rather have it than any other netbook.

    I think a lot of people are failing to see that this fucker is really going to change the way we read books and maybe how we surf the web. Personally, I hate reading anything at length on a computer screen, I rather have it in my hands.

    Think about the way the Ipod changed the way we listen to music, and also the music industry. This thing will probably do the same with books.

    People can say what they want about apple but they're innovators. They release a product and the industry changes. Ipod, Iphone, and now the Ipad.

    look like a glorified cross between Amzon Kindle and the iphone.

    probably a nice step in the right direction, but not very interesting.

    a real "textbook" test would be this

    give someone a paper textbook
    give someone a ipad textbook

    have them study for 4 hours.

    have then take a test about the subject matter

    my hunch is, all things being equal, the PAPER textbook user would win.

    Except you can't make phone calls with it. rofl.

    Again bad os, actually worse then bad.
    It doesn't support flash. And a lot of mac users are designers or flash freaks etc.
    This definitely put a lid on apps development.

    And i'm curious how long it's going to take before someone finds a way to hack into the 3g option (which you can't use to make a call so why is on there) and steal all your precious files.

    Adding to that, do you see yourself towing half a computer screen?
    It's just a load of crap.
    And come on the cheapest one is 499!
    If you buy a laptop or a mini laptop with a dongel, i can do things the ICrap can only dream of, and do it cheaper.

    If they took Steve Jobs' feces, put a small pile of it in a box and slapped an Apple logo on it and called it the iCrap, fanboys would buy it and think it smelled like heaven.

    just saying....
