anyone plan on buying one of these. if i had the money i would.
The apple I Pad was just introduced around 1pm today. It looks awesome. Its all touchscreen. I dont know the price or release date. it has a 10 inch screen only a half inch thick. 10 hour battery life, only 1.5 pounds. I think there are three versions 16, 32, and 64 gig. http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/27/live ... refresh=30
