my ipad's annoying. it needlessly corrects my spelling/grammar etc. - u always know when i'm posting from it 'cos u'll see capital letters. :roll:

it's no good for typing and emails and shit, too much faffing - but ok for impressing impressionable people in meetings when i go into town on the tube. i use it to play games and when i'm taking a latrine break.

Svetlana you are looking at the wrong model! 599 is the price of the 3G model

The base wifi only 16gb model is at 479 euro

Ermmmmm hope you do know that you can switch off auto correction!

It's annoying if you type greeklish, if you type either Greek or English it actually corrects many mistakes

Go to settings then general then keyboard.

There you can turn off auto correction or auto capitalization and other stuff.

Typed on an iPad with autocorrection on!!! :D

I disagree. iPad could compare favorably with a laptop for some things like portability and battery life, and it is good for some basic tasks, but for most other things a laptop is better. And if you are home or office a desktop PC is far better. Not only more power, but you can have a 24"+ screen, full keyboard, way more storage, you can have it on at all times which means no need to wait for it to start, there is no battery to run out etc. If you can replace a desktop with an iPad that means you are not even an average computer user.

I think you’ll find that those who have a high esteem for these overpriced mini rectangles, are very lightweight computer users anyway so they wouldn’t have a clue about power and what one can do with a full blown computer.

That’s why we’re getting so much bollocks posted here! :lol:


I suspect that GR may have decided a 10 inch screen is not quite so good for his form of internet surfing, and we all know what the internet is for:

ohhhhhhhhhh!!! GR the heavy weight computer user! the heavy weight! ohhhhh!!! the heavy weight!!!


you got it right there again man! I admit that i am a very very very light computer user. I admit it!

I only have here on my desk
- a mac-book pro connected to a 24'' apple monitor
- a windows 7 desktop on a 20'' apple monitor
- both controlled from the same key/mouse with a little program called synergy suited for lightweight users like me!!!
- a remote desktop connection is always connected to a local Win 2008 R2 server
- a terminal session is always connected to a Red Hat Enterprise server in the UK.

so basically i have 4 computers at my disposal at the same time here in the office. And note that i haven't mentioned the iPad at all here!

What would a lightweight user like me possibly know about computers? just silly things i guess so the poor iPad will work for my little needs!

That’s like bragging you’ve got 4 cars in your garage and are therefore on par with F1 drivers! :lol:

Dude let’s face it, even if you had a Cray (<- now is a good time to look it up! :wink: ) in your office, you wouldn’t know what to do with it!

Dude, methinks it’s time you returned to your “Exchange” website and downloaded some more porn and forget about taking on professionals who can run rings around you. :roll:
