The iPad is a mistake. You may have heard all the rants about how its just a big iPod touch, which it kind of is. BUT U GET A BIG SKREEN AN STUF. 140 hours battery life is somewhat amazing, but that's basically the only positive of this funky device. Prices start from $629AUD ($569USD) for the base model, with 16GB, sans 3G connectivity. WHAAAAAT???!?! The most expensive model with 3G support and 64GB costs $1049AUD ($949USD). WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAT??!?!?! It's funny because my laptop cost less than that. And a laptop is a device about the same size, with a proper keyboard, AND SUPPORTS MORE THAN JUST APPS. Please don't waste your money people, go out and live life.
