    touch screen toys

    So, my laptop recently died on me. That's not the point of this post though. Rather what lead to it. I began looking into touch screen laptops, because I really REALLY dig the idea. Well I found they were expensive but not overly so. But then I started hearing about the ipad, and my favorite tech toy, my ebook reader went kaput on me too! I was so upset.
    So I'd like to know what ya'll think about ipads mostly. Over hyped like most apple products? Worth the money? Do ya' want one?! I know I do.

    I myself need something I can use for school as I plan on starting school this fall if I can make it happen. But I totally desperately want an ipad instead. would it be functional for school purposes?

    You never really loved me/You never really cared/It was all just a game to boost your ego/Those feelings never really there/ I'm filing emotional bankruptcy/My heart can take no more debt/Theres no more "money" there to spend. === Besides tee hee SHE loves me!

    I used touch screen phones once. I cannot say much about the ipad but I will say this, touch screen phones are a huge pain and rarely worked the way I needed. If you got pencil thin fingers than you will probably be fine.

    I think it depends on what you wanna do with it. same goes for touch screen phones :O. I've got on at the moment, and going trough my menu is easy, but I rather have my old phone when it comes to typing mssgs or emails. but you're not asking for phones gheghe

    I've got a friend with a HP pavilion
    but he bought it because he thought it looks nice, he doesn't use the touchscreen that much.. wich is a waste of the touch screen

    (sorry for bad english)

    The Ipad is the same price as a regular laptop and it's really convient. I love touch screens because they are so much easier to operate. But I like regular laptops to. The smaller version of the Ipad is $599 (US) and the bigger version is $699 (US) It just depends on what size you want.

    I've never used a touch phone but they seem too small to be convenient to me anyways. But at the same time the ipad looks rather bulky for something like an ereader.

    THat IS a waste of a touch pad. But the HP is the one I was considering getting. I like the hp better because I could use the keyboard and I know it'd be good for school.

    FROM WHAT I've found te ipad is priced like a net-book, nto a laptop. The most expensive version of the ipad I found was 800. And I planned on spending about 1500 on a good laptop.

    THey are pretty cheap. On the apple website there are three sizes with wifi capability and will soon be three sizes with 3G capability. The -most- expensive one, is one with 3G and it I thin was 799 on apples website. THey aren't expensive cheaper then a laptop. Right around the price of a good net-book
