“It is beautiful to look at, a joy to use, blessed with the best screen on any mobile (or desktop) device, and backed by the strongest ecosystem of software and content on earth. The iPad line has risen from its paltry beginnings as a giant iPod touch to become the backbone of a new computing revolution,” Thurrott writes. “For many people, this is all the computing power and capability that will ever be needed.”

The iPad, today, is the only truly personal “personal computer”, if you will… Yes, I wish it was cheaper, and I won’t stop beating that drum, sorry. And yes, I wish Apple would unshackle some of the closed box features that make this device less accessible and extensible. But the company is going to sell these things by the truckload.
