I cannot believe that I am saying this, but I don’t. Not really. I mean I wouldn’t mind receiving one as a gift, but I could think of so many other things that I would rather have than the iPad. Don’t get me wrong – I love Apple just as much as any other person out there but it seems to me that the iPad is not what I want at the moment.
Apple critics have been lambasting the iPad left and right. Apple fanboys and girls have been praising it to the high heavens. What is it, really? Is the iPad going to change how we do things just like the iPhone changed the world of mobile phones?
I don’t know, I am not the expert, but for personal reasons, I would much rather get a new MacBook Pro (the smallest model for mobile computing purposes) OR an iPhone OR a Google Nexus One (for mobile phone purposes). So why am I taking this stand?
I like the looks of the iPad well enough. I like its size. I like how cool it is. I like the price. However, I don’t want to be limited to 64GB of storage and not have a USB port. I also do not want to be limited to running one app at a time on something that I will be using as a computer. They’re two simple things but they are top priority for me right now and that makes the iPad not so attractive at the moment. I think that’s a good thing for me. Otherwise, I would be spending money that I might not really have. 😉
