    Publishers are already drooling as Amazon has been telling them that an e-book is only worth $9.99 and that's it. The publisheers want to set their own proce, and desire to offer behind the scenes photos, interviews, etc. to create different pricing tiers. I like that idea actually. I always watch the extra stuff on DVDs when I have them.

    I'm buying one as soon as my Stafford Loan kicks in this semester.
    I forgot about that; the eBook industry. They might have a selling point there. Then again, just holding that thing looks uncomfortable for long periods at time, then again (yet again), people have been buying that Kindle...

    So yeah.

Still trying to figure out how I'm going to use this thing.



    Yeah, I can see it spelling doom for the Netbook demographic. Myself, I've had an HP tablet laptop for about a year now and I like it alot...but it still has a keyboard, good video card, great processor so I can still do any kind of computing task I need to. But, personally, I think this and the iPhone might be stepping on each others toes a bit too much.
    By the looks of it, I think it's a fusion of Snow Leopard and the iPhone OS. If I had to choose one though; iTouch/iPhone OS.

    EDIT: just have a small grudge against apple

    EDIT2: the name makes it sound like an electronic feminine product...


    Dude, you're getting a Dell!



    Yeah though, all their first releases will be fucked up one way or another. I'm happy with my MacBook Air (Rev. 3) big improvement from a heavy slower MacBook ('05) that was slowly chipping away due to the cheap ass plastics they were using.

    Ehh...

    That's a lot of SKUs. Although lets the user determine what they want to use it for. Warming up to it myself seeing the keyboard dock and the 3g inclusion. Maybe when I'm ready to get a new laptop I can look into this thing.

    This might be my next laptop...

    I've never purchased an Apple product for myself. Not even an iPod.

    Depends on what the OS is like...if it's more like the iTouch, no multitasking, no flash support [though HTML5 hopefully will be picking up steam by then], the 4:3 aspect ratio pretty much blows for entertainment purposes...it's a little more than an e-reader but not as good as a netbook.

    Very conflicted, personally.

    This seems like the sort of product where, it seems like the best thing ever before you buy it. But once you do, you realize you have two other gadgets that do the same thing in either a faster or more portable manner.

    ^exactly. Sometimes the excitement I see over apple stuff seems so fan boy.

    I think it looks ugly. But I'm going to the apple store in a little while, so I will post my final verdict when I get back!

    P.S.- No, I'm not going to the apple store to look at them, but since I am going to be there, I might as well.
