Manufacturer's Description

Apple iPad: Revolutionary Device with Advanced Technology
A truly revolutionary device, the Apple iPad is perfect for your mobile computing lifestyle, including browsing the Web, reading and sending e-mail, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, and much more. It features a brilliant 9.7-inch, LED-backlit display with IPS technology that delivers crisp, clear images and consistent color and a highly precise, capacitive Multi-Touch display that's Amazingly accurate and responsive--whether you're scrolling Web pages or playing games.

Measuring just 0.5 inches thin and weighing a mere 1.5 pounds, the iPad is easy to carry and use anywhere. There's also a slight curve to the back. Which makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold. This version of the Apple iPad comes with 16 GB of internal flash memory and ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking.

The iPad runs almost all apps from the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone or iPod touch. And the iPad comes with 12 new innovative apps designed especially for the iPad, including Mail, Photos, Maps, Notes, and YouTube.

When you're zooming in on a map, flicking through your photos, or deleting an email, the iPad responds with incredible accuracy. Reading and sending e-mail is on iPad's large screen and almost full-size "soft" keyboard. Import photos from a Mac, PC or digital camera, then see them organised as albums, and enjoy and share them using iPad's elegant slideshows. Watch movies, TV shows and YouTube--all in HD.

The iPad syncs with iTunes just like the iPhone and iPod touch, using a standard Apple 30-pin to USB cable, so you can sync all of your contacts, photos, music, movies, TV shows, applications and more from your Mac or Windows-based PC. Other features include up to 10 hours of battery life, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, and built-in speakers plus 3.5mm headphone jack.

9.7 inch LED-backlit Display
The high-resolution, 9.7 inch LED-backlit, IPS display is remarkably crisp and vivid, making it perfect for web browsing, watching movies, or showing off photos. It's also been designed to work in any orientation--portrait or landscape.

Multi-Touch Capabilities
The Multi-Touch screen on the iPad uses the same revolutionary technology that's in an iPhone. But for iPad, the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger surface, to make it extremely precise and responsive.

Landscape or Portrait View
IPS (in-plane switching) display technology provides a wide, 178-degree viewing angle, enabling you to hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture with excellent color and contrast.

Powerful Performance
Designed by Apple, the new A4 chip provides exceptional processor and graphics performance along with long battery life of up to 10 hours. Apple engineers took the same lithium polymer battery technology they developed for Apple's notebook computers and applied it to the iPad. As a result, you can use iPad for up to 10 hours while surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching videos, or listening to music. Apple's advanced chemistry and Adaptive Charging technology deliver up to 1,000 charge cycles without a significant decrease in battery capacity over a typical five-year lifespan.

Stay Connected
With built-in wireless-N Wi-Fi, the iPad can take advantage of the fastest Wi-Fi networks around. It will also automatically locate available Wi-Fi networks, which you can easily join with a few simple taps. In addition, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR enables you to connect to devices like wireless headphones or the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

Environmental Design
Continuing Apple's dedication to designing and creating environmentally responsible products, each iPad enclosure is made of highly recyclable aluminium and comes standard with energy-efficient LED-backlit displays that are mercury-free and made with arsenic-free glass. iPad contains no brominated flame retardants and is completely PVC-free.

iPad Apps
iPad will work with almost all of the over 140,000 apps for the iPhone. That means popular apps for gaming, video, Amazon Kindle, cooking, photography -- whatever it is you're into -- are at your disposal.

The process for getting new apps is exactly the same: Just download them from the App Store and start using immediately. Or, if you already have apps for your iPhone or iPod touch, you can sync them to iPad from your Mac or PC. Then run them in their original size, or expand them to fill the screen. And developers are working on new apps designed specifically for this amazing device and all the things it can do. The iPad also includes 12 new innovative apps designed especially for the iPad:

The large Multi-Touch screen on iPad lets you see web pages as they were meant to be seen--one whole page at a time. And with iPad, navigating through the web has never been easier, or more intuitive.

In landscape, you get a split-screen view, showing both an opened e-mail and the messages in your Inbox. To see the opened e-mail by itself, you just turn iPad to portrait, and the e-mail automatically rotates and fills the screen

You'll be able to buy everything from classics to bestsellers from the built-in iBookstore. Once you've bought a book, it's displayed on your Bookshelf. To read it, all you have to do is tap on it and it opens up.

The new Photos app displays the photos in an album as though they were in a stack. Just tap or pinch to open the stack, and the whole album opens up. Then you can flip through your pictures, zoom in or out, or watch a slideshow.

The large, high-resolution screen makes iPad perfect for watching any kind of video: from HD movies and TV shows, to podcasts and music videos. You can also easily move between wide-screen and full-screen with a double-tap.

The YouTube app organises videos so they're really easy to see and navigate. To watch one, you just tap it. When you're watching in landscape, the video will automatically play in full screen.

With the iPod app, all your music is literally at your fingertips. You can browse by album, song, artist, or genre, with a simple flick. To play a song, just tap it, and the now playing screen will show the album art at full size.

Just tap on the iTunes Store icon, and you can browse and buy music, TV shows, podcasts--or buy and rent movies--wirelessly, right from your iPad.

See more of the world with high-resolution Satellite and Street View images. You can even see topography with the new Terrain view. You can also search for a nearby business type (for example, "Restaurant") and then tap on that business to see directions.

With its expansive display and large, on-screen keyboard, iPad makes jotting down notes easy. In landscape mode, you get not only a note-taking page but also a list of all your notes.

You can see an overview of a whole month, or the details of a single day with Calendar's Day, Week, Month or List views. iPad will even show multiple calendars at once, so you can manage work and family calendars at the same time.

A new view lets you see both your complete contact list, and a single contact, simultaneously. Need directions? Just tap on an address inside a contact and it'll open Maps.

Spotlight Search
You can search across iPad, and all of its built-in apps including Mail, Contacts, Calendar, iPod, and Notes. It will even search apps you've downloaded from the App Store.

More apps
The iPad will run almost all of the apps designed for the iPhone. If you already have apps for your iPhone or iPod touch, you can sync them to iPad from your Mac or PC. Then you can run any of those apps in either their original size, or you can expand them to fill the screen.

When this was first announced I thought it looked great and it was certainly a fun and funky novelty, but I couldn't fully see the point. But then when the hype had died down a bit, I used one....

The first thing you notice is the impressive display, as soon as you see it you are compelled to touch it and the responsiveness is incredible. It responds with precision to every finger flick and you can glide between the screens with ease. I was dubious about using the onscreen keyboard but it holds up well. The keyboard is easy to see and (perhaps more importantly) easy to type on. Turning the iPad re-alligns the screen so you can view things in landscape or portrait. If you've used an iPod Touch or an iPhone then you'll be familiar with the two fingered zooming in and out, this is great when viewing photographs or when web-browsing.

Web-browsing should be a disappointment, the lack of Flash support is infamous and cited as the main iPad flaw. I was ready to criticise it but I have to admit that I was impressed and found web browsing to be a very enjoyable experience. Like most other Apple Mac products it feels intuitive and without reading a manual or receiving a demo you already instinctively know how to use it - and for an item of high-technology that's a rare a pleasant thing.

This device is best used along with a standard laptop or desktop Mac/PC to synchronise with iTunes and so that you have a main machine for file storage, but if you find yourself baffled by technology and struggle with a laptop then this could be the perfect solution if all you want to do is a bit of web browsing. My dad has a cheap laptop which takes an age to boot up, takes a further age to get on the internet, pops up many confusing messages about conflicting software, and crashes - often.

I wasn't at all convinced when the iPad first came out. I had just bought a Toshiba net book and that seemed to be a far more sensible option for my use.
Recently, when buying an iMac, I took another look.
Then I took my digital camera in and asked the store to demonstrate loading images from it. Brilliant!
I bought a 32gb model plus camera kit.
Since then I find new surprises with it every day.
The grandchildren love it for browsing and games.
I have discovered books - using Kindle reader (free) but also the iBooks application that comes with the iPad - not to buy books as they are overpriced, but to read PDF files. Fantastic as I can have my camera documentation readily available.
Email is a breeze.
Browsing the Web comes of age on this device and the keyboard is surprisingly ... Well, superb!
videos are amazing, music great..
I've bought the iWork apps as they are useful to me.
Bottom line is that I have no need of my net book now.
the Toshiba NB300 CAN pick up the Wifi better, it is true, but there is only one blind spot in the house for the iPad. It has worked well in family and neighbour houses on their wifi.

I have worked in the computer business since 1965 and I think I have been more impressed with this little baby than almost anything else - including Cray supercomputers!

Money well spent, in my opinion. The future of non-technical computing is the tablet, I think. for the technical and business stuff, the PC, and for the images and music, the iMac. Shortly the PC will move via Bootcamp to the iMac.

So, you're thinking of buying an iPad however, you're not so sure of what it can do and how it works. So, here is the "Dummies Guide to the iPad" to help you make that decision. "I promise to keep the jargon down to a bare minimum" :

To begin with the iPad must be paired to an existing Laptop or Desktop PC. These can be normal Microsoft Windows or Mac PC's. Once paired you can use the iPad by itself. It only has to be paired once. Although, there is a rumour that the next generation will work straight out of the box.

You will be able to:

-Touch and pinch the screen to type words and move things around
-Send and Receive Emails
-Browse the Internet including Online Banking, Internet Shopping and more...
-Listen to Music, including the Radio when there is a Wireless (Wi-Fi) connection
-Watch Videos and Movies
-Write and Print Letters (see the section on 'Printing' further down)
-Download and Play Games
-Become a Smarter Person (more on this later)
-Display Pictures - it is an electronic Picture Frame too!
-Take Pictures and Movies, if it has the onboard camera (iPad2 and newer)
-Have a chat with the relatives abroad using Video Conferencing technology
-Download THOUSANDS of books into a snazzy Book Reader that you can actually turn pages on the screen with
-There are loads more - I'll leave them as a surprise if you decide to buy one :)

You will NOT be able to:

-Watch a special type of animation or movie using a technology known as 'Flash' - don't worry about this though, you'll hear lots of people complaining about it. It really is no big deal and you'll learn to live without it.
