"Overall the iPad has a closer emotional feel than most laptops. Is so responsive to your touch. ...
iPad is for fun first, ideas, not serious work. A portable easy to use marvel, for entertainment, reading, games, surfing the web, and communication."
"I was not very enthusiastic about the device. ... Over the past week, I have fallen in love with the thing. ... Part of it is the fact that I can go out on my terrace with a cup of coffee, a glass of lemonade, or a glass of wine and do email in a relaxed mood. If my wife or kids interrupt me, it's easy to put the thing down and engage in a conversation. The iPad makes using a computer less of a commitment and that has important implications for the way I compute. I like how I feel when I am using the thing."
".. reading a book and watching video was very different than on my iPhone, laptop, or desktop. Ebooks were finally an intimate experience like reading physical books. Videos felt big and bright. Games were a joy ..."
"Think of those whose lives don't revolve around using a computer for anything more than entertainment. The iPad is, and let's be honest here, perfect for this group."
"It's a great couch-surfing device.
Picture this: you're watching TV. The iPad is on your coffee table. Don't pick it up or you won't be able to put it down."
"... iPad is impressively easy and fun to use.
For low-tech users looking for an affordable entry-level PC, the iPad is a computer without all the distractions."
"Apple's tablet is fun ... The extraordinary feeling you get from actually using and interacting with one of these magical objects. ... I cannot emphasise enough this point: "Hold your judgment until you've spent five minutes with it." ... This is a different order of experience. The speed, the responsiveness ... the rightness of the actions and gestures that you employ, untutored and instinctively ... it will change so much. ... iPad hits a completely new pleasure spot."
