Well keep in mind that Apple promises 10 hours on Wi-Fi and 9 if you use LTE. Having it last a little less then a "day" sounds about right and fully in line with what should be one's expectations. It really depends on how heavy you use it and your brightness settings. It would be nice if they lasted forever, but compared to your average laptop, iPad's have fantastic battery life.

I'm buying the four "for-pay" tools now in the hopes that the developers will continue to support the app and to make it better as time goes on.

I like it a lot and am considering buying a stylus to play around with it. Still have not bought any additional brushes.

I wouldn't spend that much on an iPad sleeve, but it would make much more sense to do so then a portfolio style case that won't fit future models. It's an investment that would last.

I've noticed on the work iPad (have the original and the new one) that if the 4g is on even when the iPad screen is off it still seems to drain the battery noticeably. The original could be on standby for 3-5days whereas the new one is almost toast in 2.

Yeah, I've noticed the same with my new one compared to the old one.

I have the 32g iPad 2, I honestly think it is good enough for me. Besides the better resolution and a better camera, I don't really know what else the 3 is better than the 2.

Interesting. Looks solid.

EDIT: I love Kickstarter, but would be hesitant to put that much money down on a product that has yet to be tested and reviewed.

I recently bought an iPad because I have too many business trips and often it is too heavy and bulky to carry around my MacBook Pro when I know I won't be working on huge files on Photoshop while I am away. I have been looking into keyboards, but found nothing that fits with my very picky aesthetics.... till I found you (on C-Net yesterday). THIS IS PERFECT.


so...why wouldnt this person buy a macbook air?

You get all the advantages that the iPad has over a laptop and you get the option of using this nice keyboard when you want to.

Because a Macbook Air costs twice as much as an iPad?

To be fair, this keyboard costs a $150 minimum pledge with Kickstarter. If you want the stereo speakers it is closer to a $180 minimum. Depending on which model iPad you buy, the extra cost of a keyboard attachment like this can make it quickly approach the $999 buy in for a basic Macbook Air.

These arguments always feel off to me. An iPad is not a laptop and a laptop is not an iPad. They have different, unique, uses. No reason a consumer can't enjoy and use both if they have the cash to spend.

Just got my iPad 3. The difference between this screen and my original iPad is night and day. So glad I upgraded.
