Apple iPad - An impressively built tablet computer.
The iPad is a touch-screen tablet computer, roughly the size of a magazine, with three models that connect to the Internet strictly over Wi-Fi.
The iPad runs the same software found on Apple's popular iPhone and iPod Touch. Apple calls this software the iPhone OS, and it's generally regarded as one of the most successful operating systems designed for use with touch-screen devices. Unlike conventional computer OS software, designed around the mouse and the keyboard, the iPhone OS responds only to touch input and is generally capable of running only one application at a time.
If you've ever used an iPhone or iPod Touch, the iPad will feel immediately familiar. Out of the box, you get many of the iPhone's capabilities, including Apple-designed applications (apps) for Web browsing, e-mail, maps, photos, music, video, YouTube, and more. More apps can be installed using the built-in App Store software or by connecting the iPad to iTunes via your computer using the included cable. If you already own apps purchased for an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can transfer these apps to the iPad, as well.
The inclusion of the iWorks utilities gives this device a little bit of a laptop personality. Don't let that persuade you into believing that you don't need a computer though. You might be able to get away with ditching a laptop if all you really do is e-mail or very light word processing, but if you do anything more than that you'll like the freedom and ease a full computer offers for more complex tasks. That said, this device is a tremendous leap towards a future tablet style device that may very well be a replacement for your computer, but for now it is more of a casual use device than something you can really expect to do substantial work with. I have put together a presentation in keynote, which was easy enough to do, but pages isn't as intuitive as I'd have liked, and taking lengthy notes or writing long letters/e-mails/reports will probably make it worth considering buying either the keyboard dock or the wireless bluetooth keyboard.
Battery life seems to live up to the claims, I managed to get about 7 hours before getting the 20% remaining battery life indication, which puts it about right for 10 hours or so of total use. One very important thing to realize about charging the device is that presently (at launch) there is some issues with charging via USB from many computers. The iPad is different than other iPod products, it requires a bit more power to charge up, and unfortunately most USB ports aren't set up to support that higher power draw. This is something that may be fixed in a firmware update to allow for a slower charge, or it may simply be that you'll need to either rely on a new Mac (seems like they can handle the power issue) or rely on the wall charger. Just don't be surprised if you plug it into your computer and it doesn't show that it is charging.
All in all, the iPad is an impressive device that might make for a reasonable replacement of a netbook for casual users. For people who need something to really do a lot of work on, you may find that for the price that a netbook or laptop still offers the better value for your needs. Future generations of this device will probably transition into fitting that market better than this first generation. However, if you're an avid reader, casual gamer, music fan, who doesn't do much more on the web than check a few sites, and e-mail. This thing is definitely worth considering!Read full review

Is the iPad for me?
OK, so you're thinking of forking out several hundred dollars for the new cool gadget, a "magical and revolutionary" product according to Apple.
But is it really worth the money and what kinds of users is it likely to appeal to?
First and foremost, let's be clear about one thing; The iPad is a personal computer but not in the sense that your PC and Mac is.
A PC or Mac can do everything that a modern computer can do, on the web and offline.
The iPad can do everything that you usually do on an average day online and little else.
I shall explain.
If you are the sort of person whose main use of a computer is to write a few e-mails, access a bunch of websites, do some online banking, look at pictures you've taken with your camera and perhaps even watch a movie or listen to some music, then the iPad will generally be just fine.
If more advanced tasks are part of your daily interaction with a computer, tasks such as writing lengthy documents, editing pictures and videos, mixing music, programming, playing online games or chatting to your friends using a webcam, then you will probably find the iPad quite restrictive.
Despite what Apple wants you to think, the iPad is mainly a consumption device, not a creation device.
This means that it works well as a means to watch movies, read documents and websites, listen to music and look at pictures but it has many shortcomings when it comes to creating content, from text to images and video.
Its lack of a physical keyboard and mouse makes writing and editing lengthy documents with tables, diagrams and spreadsheets a very tedious task.
Photo editing is very basic (again, the lack of a mouse and therefore input accuracy is a catalyst here) and video editing is so far non existent (and likely to be very restrictive even in the future).
You must be asking by now why there would be any reason at all to buy an iPad when a netbook computer can do everything that an iPad does and much, much more at less than half the price?
Well, the iPad has a few hidden cards up its sleeve.
First and foremost, the battery.
There are very few (heavy and expensive) laptops out there that can match the 10-hour battery life of the iPad.
With fewer trips to the plug required, the iPad is instantly more mobile than most of its competitors.
Then comes the form factor.
The iPad has no moving parts, no hard disks, no hinges, unfolding keyboards, hanging cables etc. Just takeit out of your bag and use it right away.
This inviting form factor is complemented by the fact that unlike your laptop, the iPad turns instantly on and can be used right away. No waiting for boot-up cycles, no lengthy shut-downs and hibernations.
Just turn it on and work, turn it off and stow it away.
Finally, the iPad's operating system and user interface is a no-brainer, requiring virtually no learning curve before a new user can begin making good use of its potential.
Compare that with having to learn how to configure a wireless network, come to grips with right-clicks, drag-and-drop, filenames etc.
To summarise, an iPad is great for you who wants to be kept up to date on everything you access online without going into great lengths to access it.
For everything else, you WILL need an ordinary personal computer.
The other major consideration is portability. Being a truly portable device, the iPad becomes somewhat crippled without access to the internet.
This is where the WiFi model may disappoint so seriously consider the 3G alternative.Read full review
