LOLWUT? you do know that just because the screen resolution increases it doesn't mean the underlying DATA resolution changes at all right?

That being said, I like that Apple is pushing us to higher screen resolutions. I just hope it trickles down/up to desktop/laptop displays having higher ppi as well.

Also, did THEY claim that it would have more pixels than any device? Because that is just ludicrous. (see IBM 22" T220 displays) Any MOBILE device is probably true right now. (although the Asus Transformer Infinity is just a smidge below that)

That was my wifes kindle fire and it was a bad experience. I'm not very forgiving when a device breaks down after 2 weeks. AS far as the ipad goes. I'm sure it is a fine piece of hardware but there is no way it is worth $500 for the basic version. I don't consider any tablet worth $500 with the kind of laptops you can get out there for the same money.

As far as the android devices I can do more with, my gtablet has been great and my Touchpad has been outstanding. Both run ICS.

You seem to give a shit enough to thumb your noes at people who find more value to it than you assign by talking about it in an over simplistic way and always jumping in with your dog and pony show.

You think it is overpriced. We get it. Thou cheapskate doth protest too much.

Took me 3 hours to get an order in online for delivery. Even with the planned surge of volume the servers couldn't keep up. Damn overpriced crap.

It's called being frugal and getting the most for your buck.

There's nothing wrong with being frugal. To me, it's an admirable quality. But the demand for the iPad proves that it isn't overpriced in the common usage of the term. It's out of your price range, but it isn't overpriced.

Maybe. I just feel that many of their customers will buy anything apple puts out at any price they make it. Not saying all do that but many.

The only apply product I was ever able to justify for myself was the Touch because it was so unique at the time. I have moved on from that now that there are so many android options that do the same thing and do it better in my opinion.

Price is my big gripe with apple. I feel that all of their products are overpriced. But thats no secret.

Its called being myopic and assuming other people who use that product are not getting great value for what they buy because you think you are some contrarian.

Apple products are overpriced because their customers show a high degree of brand loyalty.

Mind bottling logic....

My brother just picked up a barely used iPad2 today for $250. For $50 I'd take the used iPad over my new Kindle Fire.
