John Gruber at DaringFireball quickly points out the logical error in Sam Grobart’s justification of why he is not getting the iPad.
There’s a significant population out there, people who look at an iPad and say, “I like it, but can I get one to replace my laptop? Even for just some of the time?” And the honest answer has always been, “No.” The iPad has plenty of accessories, but it’s not a productivity device.
There might be a bit of sensationalism there, but here is something to consider. There are many first gen iPad owners out there, like me, whom are not exactly blown away by the new iPad, but want to replace this old piece of thing with something new.
I would have eventually gave in and would bought the iPad 3, but now I will just wait and see!
