Yawn. If this product didn't have the words "Apple" stamped on it, I doubt very many news outlets would even report on it.

y'all are failing to realize one thing: this is apple. they're gonna rape the early adopters and then start rolling these "missing" features out on a 6 month refresh schedule. happy spending!

WTF would real people use this for? They should make an iCube. Touchscreen on six sides. That would be sweet. And as totally unfunctional.

Still, no one has described even in a brief paragraph the difference between this and a net book.

Correct me if I'm wrong...but isn't this being touted as a laptop killer? I'd think USB ports would have to go without saying in that case.

They are also touting it as a media player...with a 4:3 aspect ratio, hah.

Sounds like the fanboys are trying to have it both ways. And to honestly expect webmasters the world over to conform to your/Apple's standards re: Flash, because you don't like it....beyond laughable.

I hope Google has something like this in the works too, completely open source, to totally punk Apple yet again.

Metro: Netbooks are gay and so are iPads IMO.

PS: Flash Video > Quicktime any damn day.

Flash doesn't require a bloated app install, it's a much smaller plugin. And if I did want high quality vids, I'd go for Xvid and completely bypass QTime anyway.

Well I was speaking specifically of the Android OS. I think the N1 is dumb too.

Those are the drawbacks of the iPad, along with simultaneous apps and poor ergonomics.

Other than that, are they any benefits to this against a netbook. I reiterate, I am a supporter of the iPhone but I just don't get this one...

this is mostly true.

Wow! A bigger version of the iTouch. Brilliant.
I can barely contain the "meh".
