The interface looks responsive and slick, but I know better than to adopt Apple's first generation of any product. The 2nd gen is always more polished, faster, cheaper and practical.
Flash: Sorry this is pretty much needed right now to be useful. I'd love to see flash no longer needed but as of now I don't want to deal with a special ipad version of a website.
I just picked up a Lenovo S10-3T 10" convertible netbook/tablet. It has a couple of flaws that are easily fixed to make it the perfect machine for me. I might consider an iPad down the road when it gets a webcam/USB and more features to make it more like a netbook.
Remote Control: This thing seemed like it would be a great replacement for a universal remote control. Throw in a good internal IR transmitter and this thing would be ready to rock. I mean one can pay 100 to 200 bucks easy for a universal remote. This would be a good way to help justify spending the cash to get one of these.
What flaws? Just curious as the reviews on this machine seem to be mixed but that's always the case TPCs.
General purpose web browsing on the iPad is VERY week. There's just too many things that don't work because of the lack of Flash. Maybe it was the Best Buy WiFi but it didn't seem all that fast and actually lost of pages are really to small to read without zooming which actually suprised me. Text was readable but not sharp by default..
I've been surfing for the last several hours on mine at home. It's fast and very easy to read, in landscape. Flash? I suppose that depends where you surf. I won't miss it all that much, but I knew that before i bought it. The few instances where I find that it's necessary will just be sites that I go to on my laptop. I don't expect it to replace my pc, buri do expect the pc to be seeing less use.
