The iPad, ladies and gentlemen…

Apple has just released info on their new chunk of plastic (or whatever that thing’s made of), the iPad. It’s basically a large iTouch.

Here’s some of the info revealed about that thing:

  • 1Ghz processor
  • No USB ports
  • No multi-tasking (WHAT THE FUCK?!)
  • Hard-drive space ranging from 16 GB to 64 GB… yipee…
  • Not compatible with “flash”…

Now you must be wondering how much will this tech marvel cost! Well, allow uncle Fontes to enlighten you up!

WOW!!! I’ll only have to pay five-hundred bucks or more for something as marvellous as this?! This is wonderful! Apple has surely exceeded themselves, this time!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, lemme show you what can you ALSO get for the same price as that thing:

  • An Asus “eee PC” (or just about any Mini-PC out there… you can get one of those for about 400 bucks. Oh, and did I mention that you’ll need to buy a keyboard for your iPad SEPARATELY?!)
  • A wacom bamboo tablet (you can get them for about 50-60 bucks. Unless you’re a dumbass, and think that you can’t do anything with an A6 or A5 tablet…)
  • A PC game (mac users probably don’t know what this is…)

And guess what… I’d probably still have enough cash for a box of doughnuts!!!

… Damn, I’m hungry, now…

    hmmm doughnuts…. *drools*
    i don’t have a Eeepc, but i have a mini-compac which cost me like 250euros. the only bad thing about it is that it doesn’t have CD/DVD entrance. but i can still install stuff on it. Beware the power of USB PENS~ 8D I know, I’m crazy. But Apple is crazier, so I feel happy.

    You actually have a on screen keyboard that is almost real sized. You can type on it without any trouble.

    But it’s way too expensive, ouch :3

      True, though I prefer to actually feel that I’m pressing something, as I’m sure many others do. That’s why they’ve shown the accessory, I presume.

      Still, I think it’s a mocking subject, when they claim it to be the best way to browse the net, and it’s not even flash-compatible… 😄

        yeah you’re totally right about that, i hate the on screen keyboard too. Altough it’s all hi tech and stuff i just can’t use it 😄
