Gadgets potentially replaced by iPad:
- Digital Picture Frame: $150.00
- iPod Touch: $200.00
- Portable Movie Player: $100.00
- Kindle DX: $490.00
- MacBook: $1,000.00 (assuming a home computer)
That’s almost $2,000.00 worth of stuff that could be replaced — essentially 4 iPads, one for every member of my family. I struggled with throwing the MacBook in that list as it is a full fledged computer, but I was thinking about who in my house would be happy with a MacBook and the only one two I came up with are my 8 year old daughter and 3 year old son. Watching the way each of them use Macs leads me to believe that either would be very satisfied with an iPad (until they hit a site that required Flash). Even without the MacBook, the fact of the matter is that this thing may end being seen everywhere at only $500.00.
