What. You think people will have to carry this, and a netbook, on the train? why would they bother with this.

What I'm not getting is the killer angle. What does it do that a netbook + and iPhone doesn't? Sure, it's pretty and no doubt well made. And it's Apple. But why do I need one?

Lots of people don't need to work on the train and don't need a keyboard for anything but e-mail.

Looking around my office, other than the managers or partners, I doubt anyone works on the train.

You don't think people work on the train? Or that they might want to work on their mobile computer?

Netbooks are pretty limited- iPad does a lot more than it
iPhones are too small and fiddly if you're writing emails

It fills me hole between my iphone and computer anyway....

Assuming I have an iPhone and a netbook, what can I do on my iPad that I can't already do?

It's a totally non-nonsensical product.


I still want one though.

Am I missing the point here. Are Apple actually suggesting this should replace netbooks? If so they targetting this at businesses then?

I wasn't aware that they were tbh.

No they're not. In fact it seems specifically aimed at non-business consumers.

Steve Jobs said that there was a gap in the market for a machine that can fit between a smart phone and a laptop and that netbooks aren't the answer.

The ipad is meant to be the answer.
