When the iPad came out, I thought great – a small laptop, easy to carry around.
In practise, it is the most disappointing thing I’ve ever bought. In every way, my Macbook laptop is better. The iPad infuriates with useless wordprocessing, very difficult to share files (with an App which has poor security), no access to file system. There is nothing about the iPad that can’t be done better on a proper laptop.
Admittedly, it’s quite good as an iPod player. But, why carry a 9inch screen around, when you can pop a small iPod in your pocket?
To me it’s just like a bulky iPhone.
An interesting experience of being swept up in a wave of commercialism and hype selling.
Of course, I’m probably missing something, as everyone else seems to think they are great. And I hope you’ll still be inspired to put in a bid.
I mention it on this blog, as I don’t often sell things on eBay I have sold only two things. (I usually just give stuff to Charity shops). But, I want to get some of cost back.
The iPad is as good as new and is on sale at Ebay here. It is 16GB version. no 3G
