read the comments on that site, alot of them indicated they got a new EEEPC instead of an ipad simply becuase of the usb ports and hdmi ports
also im pretty sure if a laptop, tablet, or anything +$500 was offered for free, people would take it,
Real work? Tell me, what device is it that all the CIO's and CEO's are walking around with these days? Is it an eeepc? No, its an iPad, and they get plenty of real work done with it.
the ceo of the company im currently with carries a fujitsu multi touch 12" tablet,
it has all the standard ports of a laptop as well as hdmi, he also has a dock so he can drive a 30" monitor and connect to a bluetooth mouse and KB. the ipad sure as hell cant do any of that, whats important in the corporate world is Exchange/outlook, sharepoint and office.

A 1080p movie is 4 gigabytes. If you think it actually takes 50 gigs to make a Blu-ray movie look that good, you need to be committed.
you seriously think a 3mbps 1080p video is the same quality as a 45mbit 1080p BD? you obviously have no knowledge of what you speak, and btw a good quality BD RIP is 13-15GB (both avatar and terminator rips are 13+ GB and there are still artifacts and blurs in dark scenes becuase of the compression)
a 4GB rip sure as hell aint going to be better
USB >> VGA, SD, USB
does the ipad have a usb port without an adapter? thats the point i was making
tablets dont have ethernet? cant upgrade the storage? cant upgrade ram?
do you have a clue about any other tablets out there fanboy? the t1005m, T1125n, asus t101mt, lenovo s310 and t91m can upgrade all aspects of hdd and ram and they all have an ethernet port
doesnt do 1080p? the archos 101 has hdmi out and has the exact same cpu, apple crippled the ipad and the ATV but they can both do 720p (the samsung humming bird can do 1080p on paper)
the ATV has HDMI but the ipad doesnt. explain that.
you seriously think the samsung 1ghz cpu is fast? do you realize how slow it is compared to a dual core atom N550 1.5GHz or an Atom D525 1.8GHz? that peice of crap doesnt even support 64bit instructions its a cell phone cpu, the Samsung wave has the exact same cpu and it costs $300 without a contract.
"And I've been trollin' trollin' trollin' trollin' trollin' and trollin' trollin' trollin'..."
Sorry, I don't keep up on the idiotic music of my generation\\
you offer no evidence that the ipad isnt slow, over priced, underpowered and worthless in functionality when compared with anythign in the price category
ive provided links and hard numbers, its obvious that fanboys are incapable of this.
maybe reading isnt your strong suite. heres a picture
