Well its taken a while for this expert opinion to mirror what I’ve been feeling since I saw the iPad… I’m sure at some point it will take off in a big way and Apple-ites will rejoice, throwing it back in my face that I ever doubted the might of iPad. However, as of now, with the functionality that current netbooks and this first incarnation of the iPad provide, I agree with this article
10 Reasons why a netbook is a better choice than an iPad

Perhaps the iPad will have a use after all…. but you’re going to have to rely on some pretty old school technology! Not sure how I would feel doing this to my £600 iPad thats about as resilient to being dropped as a heamophiliac baby made out of spun glass…

I’m in the market for a netbook- my wonderful wife and family are clubbing together to bring me into the 21st century… I’ve been astonished at the choice available. I’m sure these things only appeared a couple of years ago, yet there seems to be hundreds of versions of the things, each seemingly exactly the same as about 100 others. Even netbooks made by the same manufacturer are confusing, with 8 variants on each one, all ever so slightly different, yet somehow exactly the same!!!
Thankfully I’ve settled on one now (I think). The Samsung N220. By all accounts a great netbook… its distinguising feature being an amazing battery life of up to 12 hours…. that remains to be seen, but if its not then all those boasting 8 hours are more than likely talking a load of old tosh as well.
Anyway, fingers crossed on it… hope I’ve made the right choice as I’m fed up of looking around!
