May you not complain in 6 months when the price drops.
In your rush to insult us all, you forgot to put any sense or meaning in your comment. What the heck is "$500 16GB WiFi device" even mean?
Even if I ignore the mis-spelling of "GB" (you said Gigabit
), there are "WiFi devices" of all stripes, sizes and prices from 50 cents all the way up to millions of dollars.
The only rational price comparison to make is with other devices of a similar type that have come out fairly recently. When you do that, the iPad comes out as a very good deal indeed. Sure it will likely go down in price a bit or have more memory for the same price later, but for right now, it's one of the highest performing tablets you can get for one of the lowest prices around.
To suggest that it's somehow overpriced is just ridiculous.
