But keep pumping out nonsensical, poorly reasoned blathering. It fits in well with much of the other commentary here at AppleInsider.

Pray tell me how you connect to a NEW router using WiFi when the WiFi hasn't been set up? Answer - you initially need an ETHERNET connection which Oh Lordy! the iPad doesn't have...

7 is very useful if you share the device.  I have 2 ipads and 3 kids plus the wife and I.

3 kids?? Are you insane??

only way you think an ipad is in the same as a MAC is if you make nothing - it is an insult to lump a MAC running OSX with the mickey mouse iOS and a toy like an iPad.

Even Apple keeps them apart. 

Some of those things are valid but how much of it is due to a lack of apps? Here's an app for web development for example:

One for making books:

With iMovie, you can do rough edits, if they put FCPX on there it takes it up a notch. Same with Aperture. They have Photoshop Touch too:

The fact is, the iPad is running a desktop-class operating system. Now, while the iPhone is running the exact same OS and isn't defined as a PC, the screen size and usage scenarios have to come into it.

I've seen people replace laptops with iPads as their only device too and they couldn't replace them with a phone.

When the iPad was a slave device, it could never replace other machines but now that it's a master device, that is no longer true and I think it is valid to class it as a PC.

If not before then certainly now.
