I will respectfully disagree. Personally I find there are much more powerful and versatile tablets out there

As for people asking why an ipad 2 is required so soon, it's because the competition is stepping it up and the ipad can't fall behind. Most tablets coming out are much more powerful than the ipad. It needs to follow suit.

I love my iPad, no kidding best laptop I've ever had. 8 hour battery without a huge donk sticking out. I watch movies, edit documents, browse OCN, watch porn, do schoolwork on it. It's great for all that.

I haven't come across one site I visit that requires me to use Flash either, I just don't see what the big deal is with Flash anyways... well other than it's the only flaw I've ever head of on the iPad. But is it a flaw?

More powerful sure, but they can't do a 100th of the things the iPad can do with all it's apps. There's also a bigger third party hardware and software community.

8 hours!? What are you doing on your iPad that it's sucking up the juice that fast?

I downloaded an entire season of Fringe through iTunes and then proceeded to play about 12 episodes in a single day back-to-back through the component cables on my big screen TV. I think I was at like 70% battery at the end of the day. I don't think I even started at 100%.

I watch Netflix in my Car at lunch or between classes. Wireless + 100% brightness does it. It's not 8 hours its somewhere around 8.46 Hours.

I haven't come across one site I visit that requires me to use Flash either, I just don't see what the big deal is with Flash anyways... well other than it's the only flaw I've ever head of on the iPad. But is it a flaw?
I'm a youtuber, a lot of videos I find arn't converted. Using specific features in your youtube account is also unavailable. Also, on ocn, I like to put my mouse over a news link to read the whole title before clicking on the topic. On the ipad, it makes a big block that covers my screen and any other links and then i can't click anything.

For my personal use, lack of flash support and the way safari works is crutial to my choice.

I like the androids chances Having used a few android devices and one of their tablets. There isn't much that one can do that the other can't. Althought there are thousands upon thousands of apps for the ipad, i find that the essential apps that you really need are available on both tablets

Switch to Desktop View. I've not seen these unconverted videos I guess.

Yes, this would cause problems. Doesn't happen on my iPad but I could see this being annoying.

I love my iPad. I know it is not a replacement for a laptop or netbook so I am pleased with it.

The apple haters on this site crack me up. I enjoy the BEST of BOTH worlds

I'm not exactly saying that I'm a hater, I was refering to the price at launch for the lowest version of the platform. lack of camera, ammount of available memory and no flash support really blew it for me. I will however say yes Apple can and does make good little products and their computers are pretty awesome aswell, but they do not provide me specifically with what I want in these products for the price. I bought my zune hd simply because it was a cheaper alternative to the ipod, price and usability wise I love the little zune.

Lets just say my mentality towards all of this= price+overall features(be it flash or a camera or other things)= my ultimate decision on a product. I would of loved getting an ipad to play with, but with all of the restrictions involved with it and its price when it launched and now. I dont see my self saying ok I'll spend this money on your product. when I could buy a lot of different things for the same amount of money.
