One drawback with the I pad is that there is no way to expand the memory so you are stuck with it as bought.

The lack of flash player doesn't bother me at all. With 40 million I-pads predicted to be sold in 2011 I am sure that there will be a solution to this although I doubt that it will be flash player.

I have no need for 3g on the I-pad as I primarily use it at home. When out and about if I need to access e-mails etc I use my I phone.

The I pad as I see it is an additional gadget to the PC and phone. I am a late convert to Apple and am now seriously considering replacing my windows laptop with an I mac.

The question is do you really need 3g? with the additional costs involved? If you already have a 3g phone I would say no.


I suppose 3g is useful for Google Maps etc when finding locations.

you can download the tom tom maps on the iphone/ipad/android and use gps...no need for 3g for google maps...this way it doesn't cost any money.

this is why i like the android operating system...no need to jailbreak it... :lol:

Not terribly keen on the iPad...

For those who want a small, thin and very light Mac, look at the Macbook Air,
again with flash memory, and the 11' model is delightfully compact... and you get a fully fledged lap-top for about £GB200 more than the top of the range iPad.

AQ are you the same person that used to post years ago on the eubusiness forum?


Don't think so. I've posted to several business forums over the years but not that one.

I think the great thing about Apple is the way everyone else has to raise their game to stay in the race. We all benefit.

Just ordered a Mac Book pro, can't wait for it to arrive!

You have every reason to be waiting in excitement and impatient anticipation of this remarkably lovely machine brother/sister... it's a gem of a machine.

If so what do you think of it, can you give it an overall rating out of ten.
I ordered one yesterday.


it will grow on you as much as your pocket book or credit card, you will never want to leave your house without it

You guys sound like teenagers waiting for the next epic game to be released!

Are you really putting these gadgets to any worthwhile use or just showing off fiddling with them in cafeterias? :lol:

And do you transfer your data successfully from one to the other, or just recreate everything each time you toss it for a new model? :lol:
