That being said, it's awesome for the kitchen, outside on the porch, bedtime and travel. I love the device, but it hasn't changed my life or anything.

The new iPad is very cool. I bought a bluetooth keyboard case to go with it and the screen is so sweet. Watching videos in high def on it are stunning. I really like the voice dictation..it is pretty accurate. It is a replacement for my laptop since I don't really do much except for send e-mails, watch neftlix and surf on Chiefsplanet and ESPN. Plus with the 4g lte I can take it anywhere I go and have Chiefsplanet at my fingertips. I love it.

No it isn't. It's a statement of fact. I won't pay their price either. If you do, that's your baileywick. I own one that I picked off craigslist from a student that needed money. Basically I stole it from her.

I want an iPad II. And I'll wait until I can get one that fits what I'm willing to pay. If you want to pay retail, by all means, do just that.

That's the real truth just because you can't / dont want to afford it doesn't mean it's overpriced

Between you and Guru, you make up two data points, not the entire market.

Yea, I realize that.

I am the only market I care about. We could debate this all day and night. As I clearly stated, if people want to pay the retail price, it's okay with me. "I" will not. But I'll find a way around that. School will be out soon and college students will be trying to get what they can for them in the next month or two.

OK, at first I thought you were disagreeing with |Zach|.

What I disagreed about in Zach's post is his view that not wanting to pay the price was myopic, and by extension, that I feel retail payers don't get the same value as I do/did. Nothing more really.

I love the product. I just can't get through the price. I love expensive things. But I'll never own a lot of them unless they fall into my lap in such a way that I can justify the price.

"Wants" vs "Needs" thing with me.

OK, I interpreted |Zach|'s "myopic" statement differently than you did. I thought he was saying that it's narrow minded for Guru to say that something is overpriced just because he isn't willing to pay the price.

It IS overpriced if you consider you can get devices with comparable or better features for the same if not cheaper price. Its not overpriced to people that dont give a shit about price.

It isn't. The form factor is really good.

I think people who blab on about how Apple is only good at marketing sound so silly. In this country at this moment in history we are saturated with marketing hype, brand hype, and marketing bullshit every second of every day.

We are very cynical when it comes to all of that stuff.

People never give Apple enough credit for the form factor of what they made with the iPad. Everything else has fallen on its face because it simply isn't as good.

I don't have a problem with someone not wanting to pay for the device and not seeing its value. That is no biggie. However his insinuation that people who buy them are drooling idiots who just have money and are too stupid to think for themselves was silly.

The new iPad is definitely very expensive. But you have to take into consideration that a lot of people might use this for their laptop. Which makes it not quite so bad of a price. You can definitely find cheaper laptops but when you set there and know that you can take it anywhere with you it makes it not so bad. What is just really cool is that I dictated this whole thing with my new iPad.
