This review is from: Apple - 64GB iPad (1st Gen) with Wi-Fi (MB294LL/A)
Pros: Beautiful screen. Netflix on this is outstanding if you have a decent internet connection. Games and apps are gorgeous. Immediate attention grabber (if you like that kind of thing). A lot of the news and business related apps are free (NYT, NPR, Etrade, Bloomberg etc...)
Cons: WAY overpriced for what you get. I was truly psyched when I got this as an award at work, but I am totally at a loss for why anyone would spend over $700 for this thing - even $500+ for the smaller one seems to be robbery to me. A decent laptop can do so much more for the same price. The majority of good apps for this cost more $$$. It's frustrating when you feel like you are buying something that is free on your laptop using a browser... Also, reading books on this thing is no good for more than 10 or 15 minutes. My eyes get tired of the backlighting and LCD. Kindle and Nook are way better for this (tried both). Lastly, my employer blocked all iOS devices from connecting to Exchange since the OS is "not secure enough yet". Ugh. And we are a 10,000 employee company...
Other Thoughts: Hoping iOS 4.2 in November adds some quality. The lack of Multitasking is a pain, looking forward to that. Also hoping the Samsung tablet will pull the price down and push apple to improve the OS.
3 stars for an overpriced toy.
Pros: Have been running this kit for over a year, no issues yet.
Would easily recommend this kit to anyone else in the market for triple channel affordable RAM.
Other Thoughts: Having trouble understanding why other reviewers expect "Advance RMA". No tech vendors do this - why would G Skill be any different. "Hey, my ram is broke. Send me a new one. Bye!" Yeah... right... Blaming one vendor for the industry standard seems a bit childish.READ FULL REVIEW
