It sure is pretty…

Yes, it is… but let’s see what it can do. Probably about halfway through now, but I was hoping for more macbook and less iphone. We’ll see.

…but, that’s all I’m seeing. It’s pretty. It’s sexy. It would be fun toy to play with but I have a laptop and I have a smartphone (now I really will need to decide between a Droid and google Nexus One) so where does this fit in?

It’s not a phone but it needs a data plan. That means, a second data plan. Not cool at all. I’m not buying e-books for $14.99 when I prefer reading a real book any day. {Side note: Granted, it does make moving more difficult – Dave and I have a huge book collection – but I love browsing through used book stores and smelling and feeling the pages of a book. } I can listen to itunes on my ipod or on my macbook pro. I can watch movies on my laptop and soon on my Wii (so, on TV) with Netflix. Spreadsheets? Who cares. And, I really don’t have time for games nor do I want to pay for them.

So, I’ll stick with my macbook pro that I love. I’ll upgrade it. And, eventually, I’ll switch from my Blackberry to one of the above mentioned phones. Sexy isn’t enough.

Oh, and one last thought. Seriously, ‘iPad’? Were there no women in on those meetings?

    haahhaaha, i’m so glad i read this, because i was clueless as to what’s so great about this thing. and seriously, ipad?? that’s what i thought of too…i just thought, “maybe i’m wildly immature.” glad to know you’re right there with me, dosch.
    i would looove a macbook pro…i just have a macbook. i’m still die hard apple…no pcs in my house. except the one i have to use for work. :)
    and yeah, i’m not down with the kindle or the nook either. i love the smell and feel of an old book. there’s nothing like it.
