There is already a thread on this topic here: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f24-t...veils-itablet/
To answer your question though, no I would not buy one. I pretty much agree with everything stated in the other thread so you can check there for why.

no i wouldn't. they seem way too expensive for what they are.. but then all apple stuff is expensive so i'm not surprised.

also.. why does it have two different names? or am i being dumb?

It's got one as far as I know - iPad?

No, I'd rather spend the money on 5 months of food at college (vs. most expensive model).

When Apple announced they were making a tablet people branded it the iTablet but when it was released by Apple it was officially called the iPad.

Nah I wouldnt buy it, it sounds crap, looks pants, i have a ipod, and i have a laptop. I could buy a new laptop and a phone for the price of them,

Apple suck why do they think they can charge so much for things!!

The ipods always bloody freeze, and i bet this Ipad thing sucks too.

Nope. I have a laptop, cell phone, and ipod. I don't feel the need to have something else. It doesn't have anything that I need. If I wanted something smaller than my laptop, I would get a netbook, not an ipad.

Nope, I personally think it's a stupid idea. I mean did you see how huge that thing is? To me it just looks like an oversized, over priced, ipod touch :P

"It's a computer without a keyboard"

For that reason I wouldn't like it. It's too advanced for me. I don't want to touch something ALL the time.

No I wouldn't. However in the future I might. Right now it is too new so I don't know if it will be any good. There are a few things it cannot do that I would like it to do. I am thinking in the future when new models are made etc I might consider buying it.

God no, like everyone else has said it's just a big ipod touch. It I wanted an ipod touch I'd buy an ipod touch, not an enlarged more expensive version.

No. My ipod fits in my pocket.
If it had windows installed instead I'd consider it

Not really because I've never had much luck with Apple products lasting at all.

And I just don't like Apple and their mass taking over of the MP3 Player business. Seriously, iPod doesn't need that much shelving space.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

If you can afford spending at least $500 for...a touch-screen netbook with a crappy OS, you can take the plunge and spend a couple more for a Macbook. Proper keyboard, and proper OS. Just buy a case or something and suck it up.
