Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

I'm not paying for a netbook without a keyboard, I'm paying for a netbook with 10 hour battery life and weighing less than 2 lbs. Show me this sub $200 netbook with 10 hour battery life that weigh less than 2 lbs and I'll buy two of them tomorrow.

Well, can't beat the battery lifetime, but Expert in Denmark are selling netbooks for ~199 US$ (mostly variations on asus eee 90x-series). The weight is around 2.2 lbs so I guess that disqualifies every single one. But okay, you don't mind missing the keyboard in order to get 10 hours of battery lifetime. Fair enough, that'd be great in the brazilian jungle. The rest of us are never that far away from a plug ;)
