The iPad gives you a phone's worth of features in a laptop size. No thanks.

it's not a pretty big market, it's 95% of the world's population, at MINIMUM. And there's nothing sad about it--Apple finally created something for the masses. The people who read this site happen to not be in the masses, from a technology standpoint, though obviously it still appeals to a decent number of them, as well.

Anyone who's run tech support for a while should be drooling over the prospect of the iPad, or a device like it, filling the need that the vast majority of computer users have been shoehorning professional OSes into for the entire time period between the Apple // and it's disk-is-the-program paradigm and today.

Me, I don't currently need one enough to justify the expense, but I expect I'll buy one for "laid back" browsing, a need that my MBP, or really any full-sized laptop, does not do at all well at.
