    Nay.
    One its Apple. [​IMG]
    Two is that it provides nothing innovative. It's not really a tablet PC since it doesn't even run a full blown operating system. It runs their mobile OSX which still requires iTunes to sync things to it.
    Three its freaking expensive
    Four a netbook can provide more.

    Fixed and +1. Now if they ran Mac OS X on the iPad, I'd be all for it. On another note, someone has hacked the iPhone and allowed an Android OS to run natively via Linux.

    It's official name is iPhone OS? Eh whatever. [​IMG]

    It never will replace netbooks. I can type on one much faster. I don't even need to buy an additional keyboard!

    Even if it ran OSX I still wouldn't buy it.

    Here's another to a nay point. It got banned at some college. [​IMG]

    At first I thought it would suck, but then I looked into it more...

    Larger screens are a plus.
    Paired up with a bluetooth headset and a VoIP app, you could use it as a phone with Wi-Fi and/or 3G.
    Sleek, nice-looking design.
    iWork, which is Apple's version of Microsoft Office.
    Screen-Rotation-Lock button...I for one would love this, especially when using Safari or watching a video.

    Of course, there are more features that I haven't noticed yet while looking at stuff online about the iPad, but I guess my vote goes for "Yay!".

    On the most simplistic level, the iPad is like a shitty Mardi Gras party. No flash, no good.

    Put on flash and multi-tasking (seriously, what the hell?) and then it'll make me turn my head.

    EDIT: Alternatively, release a special edition iPad version of Starcraft 2... and we'll talk [​IMG] Imagine that. A killer RTS with multi-touch support. That'd be horribly bad ass.

    GeoHot is already working on Jailbreak program called - Blackra1n on iPad, so then you can multitask [​IMG]

    And Apple is also launching their new 4.0 OS "soon" which includes multitasking.

    I'm not interested in the iPad since it seems the HP Slate can do everything the iPad can plus more.

    Not interested. The only things it good for is some casual gaming. Apart from that its just a big, scary ipod touch.

    It's too gimmick-y for me.

    Definitely not worth the price anyway. So nay.

    Just say no to this yuppy status symbol.

    Your cock is likely more than big enough [​IMG]

    Wait for the HP Slate, it's likely better.

    I'm-a go with everyone else and say it's a bigger iPod touch and all that's mostly good for is music and videos. App store is meh, don't really see what people see in the games that are on there.
