How is an Ipad any better than a laptop ?The major complaint I have with a non desktop computer is the mouse.To me a removable wireless mini mouse would be a far better design in a laptop than an mouse pad !Laptops already have built in links to networking as it is for a few bucks more a wireless mouse link would be a simple addition and Laser mice don't require a ball pad !
Ipads seem to me to be clumsy to use .In order to use one it's either flat on a surface or propped up on your lap or on your knee.The design seems to emulate writing on a piece of paper flat on a desk yet the it doesn't use a stylus but a keyboard .The only effective way to enter data or commands is to prop it up somehow so as to enable easy viewing .
From a pragmatic viewpoint an Ipad is an laptop where the display has been drawn into the keyboard and absorbed by it,roughly half an laptop .The goal seems to have been make it smaller and smarter looking but less practical to use .
It turns out it's more of a forced application of computer hardware,something doable that is rather clumsy to use .Again where is it more useful than a laptop ?
To expand on the application the Ipad does make sense as an reading device ,sort of a like large kindle .The design would be better if it folded in half like a book and the text were able to cross from one side to the other transparently,sort of like Microsofts original pad concept .

Men simply don't like the size. For women, this is mostly a non-issue.
