Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

I heard that his next big article will be a defense of patent law when it works in favor of Apple. Just kidding, just kidding!

But I agree with your sentiments, Thom. A laptop is actually more capable, but the iPad is just so... direct? It's just there and not in the way. It's not trying to replace my tower OR my laptop, but it just has an immediacy that makes it the go-to for surfing around the house, a lot of touchy games, etc. It's just nice to use, even if the UI will advance (why in the hell will a 5-finger 'grab' not bring up an Exposé like app selector even in iOS 5, for example?).

I refuse to call it magical, though. Maybe when it has a Retina display? ;)
