Advantages: Very easy to use on the go, generally impressive in most ways
Disadvantages: The cost
I wasn't in a huge hurry to buy the Apple Ipad when it first came out, I was put off by the hefty price tag and I didn't think I would really get much use out of it. I was then given one by work and now i'm a total convert, it even went out and bought the nex iphone after using this. In terms of size, the ipad has no real competition, it's much slimmer than any netbook i've seen, which is great for when your travelling and have to carry it around. It's also quite light and as its in a flat tablet for its very easy to use on the move compared with a conventional laptop. If you've ever used an ipod touch or an iphone then you will already be familiar with the user interface. Its all done by touch and by simply selecting the relevant app icon. Its very easy to navigate and very user friendly, even for people who aren't very computer friendly. It has some good basic programming on it, such as documents writing and spreadsheet apps. Its also very straight forward to download any other apps which you require for it, and most are reasonably priced. The internet is surprising quick and at times often runs faster than my landline connection. You can also connect it to your home wireless network if you don't want to pay for a mobile broadband contract. However if you purchase it without mobile broadband, i dont really see what your going to do with it while your out and about. The battery life is pretty impressive and i have no issues with how long it lasts. i also bought a stand for it, so when i'm not using it and im in the house i use it as a digital photo frame. The picture quality is again very impressive. I cant really think of anything to criticise except maybe the price.
There are probably cheaper alternatives than this but i don't think anything would be as good.
Summary: A good gadget to have but the price may put some people off
