In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

I don't know if you can call the iPad a PC because it isn't really customizable without hacking it. It is an Apple computer not an Apple Personal Computer that would entail a high level of personalizability. The IBM PC for instance you could write your own OS if you wanted and nobody would stop you.
