Apple unveils tablet computer

You would be able to play games, read electronic books, listen to music, watch movies and choose from nearly 140,000 smart-phone applications - all while on the go with Apple Inc.'s new iPad.

The question is whether you would want or need such a device, and be willing to pay $499 or more for it.

After months of hype that culminated in days of water-cooler speculation, Apple unveiled Wednesday the highly anticipated iPad, essentially a personal computer contained in a portable flat-panel touch screen. If the iPad catches on, it could usher in a new era for the tablet computer and redefine the burgeoning market of portable media devices and electronic book readers.

    Get an Asus Eee Tablet.  Cheaper and has more functionality along with a far greater list of possible applications you can put on it as its a PC.

    The Tablet PC never caught on because they always paired it with some weak video cards and never offered a desktop solution thats reasonably priced.  Whats the point of it if you have to use an Intel IGP, or a 6 year old nVidia IGP?
