"niche" seems to be the last bastion of the padophobes.
the iPad MIGHT fail and MIGHT be a crappy product, but "stock answer #whatever" seems to be "niche niche niche niche" as though this product does something so esoteric.
This product will not "fill a niche." It will succeed (like iPod/iPhone) or fail (like Apple TV seems to be doing)
I'm thinking about doing that as well, but part of me hates only having 16 GB (I have about 15 GB of music)edit: my iPod is a 20gb white iPod photo and my laptop is a 2003 iBook, so I don't have other new apple products, which might be a reason why I'm comfortable getting one of these.
I'm curious as to how it matters?You've got keynote on your iPad, and just hook it right to the projector ... so ...edit: unless you mean you are wanting to work collaboratively with people who only use Powerpoint, which I suppose is a good reason.
I also would use one to take notes in meetings (where not too much typing is needed) or classes. Mail / lite surfing while at the Cabin, too.
I think apple envisions a class room where this replaces a pencil, notepad, and textbooks by rolling them all into one. Eventually it may get there.
