Perhaps you could find somewhere else to waste your time.  

Apple lossless - Netgear Nighthawk - ATV3 - AVI ADM 40.  

AVI ADM 9T used in my wife's system

RE: IPad?

I agree with Lee H for me it's all about how instant the ipad is. If i watch tv and want to find something out eg where have i seen that actor before it's the closest step to having my brain wired to Google. What i don't get is why people would give you a hard time on here for asking a perfectly reasonable question. These people should go onto youtube to make their pointless comments.

RE: IPad?

Going back to the initial question, I actually would turn this on it's head. Until I got an iPad I may well have agreed with the general suggestion of the original post. However, after owning an iPad for 10 months I have reached the conclusion that I don't actually need anything else other than an iPad.

This was demonstrated two weeks ago when I turned my PC to do something and on shutting it down there were 27 updates to be applied!

I would welcome a Mac Book (air or pro, I'm not fussy Smile  ) but cannot really justify the expense

RE: IPad?

The iPad is great but it lacks the full os x experienece. The MacBook air on the other hand has it all great portability and the full os x experience I still personally don't see how people can say out with the computer in with the iPad? The iPad does a lot dont get me wrong but can you really replace your computer with a iPad I would love  to say yes but I just can't see it?

That's exaxtly my point. It isn't supposed to replace it but it has perhaps demonstrated to me that in reality I don't need a computer.

I suppose a fair comparison would be a point and press digital camera vs a high end digital SLR. I have the point and press as it does everything I want without having the full photography "experience"

RE: IPad?

So in other words you dont need a computer, Your content with a iPad, Fair enough. But still a iPad has got along way to go before it can replace a actual computer that's my point.

The thing is, iPad isn't meant to replace your computer at all. It'll be ultrabooks / MacBook Air for that. Apple will not destroy its own product line of macbooks by making the iPad powerful & useful enough.
